in reply to ActiveState EULA : Is my code safe?

Sometimes the best thing to do in situations is to simply ask the people who made the rules.

I went to the ActiveState Site and asked their legal department for a clarification

This was their responce

The license terms you refer to in your email do not accurately reflect ActiveState's intent. Our original license agreements were based upon boilerplate terminology which is in the process of being reworded. The section you refer to will be replaced with the following wording: "Termination. This License Agreement is effective until terminated. ActiveState may terminate this License immediately and without prior n +otice if you breach any term of this License or for any reason whatsoever. I +n the event of any termination or expiration, you agree to immediately destr +oy and/or erase the original and all copies of the Software, any accompan +ying documentation and License Keys and to discontinue their use and you wi +ll not retain or store the Software or any copies thereof, in any form or med +ium." The license agreement for the Perl Dev Kit has already been updated (s +ee +x) and updated wording for our other license agreements will be posted shortl +y. I assure you that ActiveState in no way intended the wording of our li +cense agreements to establish a claim of ownership over works created using +our products. Please let me know if I can provide you with any further clarification + and feel free to pass along this information to others. Thank you again fo +r bringing this to our attention.
