of product keys and product registration.
2.) TRIAL SOFTWARE AND REGISTRATION The Software operating without a valid and legitimately obtained product key is considered to be a trial version ("Trial Software") which is subject to the Terms of License. The Software, when operating with a valid and legitimately obtained product key is considered to be a registered version ("Registered Software") and as such is also subject to the Terms of License excepting such terms as are explicitly applied to Trial Software. Product keys may only be legitimately obtained through the Copyright Holder who has the sole right to distribute such product keys according to such terms and conditions as he may choose so long as they do not conflict with the Terms of License.

Included with the Software is a JavaHelp(TM) package which was created by Sun Microsystems and is required for the Software to function properly. The JavaHelp(TM) package is governed by a seperate license and is distributed with this governing license by Sun Microsystems as part of a larger library. The license to use the Software excludes any use that would separate, modify, or replace any of the component parts of the Software, including the Terms of License. If any part of the software is of interest for software development purposes or otherwise, please visit http://imageeditor.theshtick.org/ in order to see if the part of interest is distributed seperately or to voice an interest in part of the Software.

9.) TERMINATION OF AGREEMENT License is granted under the Terms of License and granting of the license is conditioned upon agreeing to abide by the Terms of License. Product keys are also maintained only with the understanding that the license for the product has not been violated. This agreement can be voluntarily terminated by destroying all copies of the Software you maintain. (Product keys will not be automatically unregistered for users voluntarily terminating this agreement.) Similarly, if you fail to comply with the Terms of License, then your agreement with the Copyright Holder to abide by the Terms of License has been violated and terminates. Upon termination, you are required to destroy all copies of the Software you maintain, and your product key may be unregistered by the copyright holder or his agent, ending any and all benefits derived therefrom. No refund will be granted for product keys unregistered due to violation of this agreement.
10.) SEVERABILITY Any license granted is granted only under the Terms of License. If any provisions of the Terms of License are held to be unenforceable, then the Terms of License are still in force without such provisions, unless the removal of such provisions would violate the intent of the Copyright Holder, in which case there is no agreement and the license is not granted.
