License packages are fabricated here on order, pre-registered to the licensee with a unique serial number, and with the number of license seats indicated.
A bulk right-to-copy license consists of:
All users within (or clients of) the licensed organization share the same registration and serial number. The license covers employees (and in the case of academic institutions, also students) of the licensed organization, including contractors during the period of their contract. The Discount column shows the discount against the single-copy retail price of $75.
Any number of copies (100 or more) may be purchased by paying the unit price per copy appropriate to the range.
"Site" or "unlimited" licenses are not available. To achieve freedom from copy counting and license administration, simply purchase sufficient licenses to cover the maximum expected number of users.
The licensee must assume responsibility of preventing all manner of external access to the software, including, but not limited to, unauthorized redistribution of the software in any form by employees, or placing of the software on file servers, ftp servers, or Web pages that are accessible from outside the licensed organization.
The licensed organization must provide technical support to its users, and may, in turn, obtain technical support from Columbia University through a designated single point of contact.

(But read the following material first.)
An academic site license consists of:
Effective 1 January 2002, there are two kinds of academic site-licenses:
Kermit 95 academic site licenses are available at the rates listed below. An academic site license entitles all students, faculty, and staff at the licensed institution to individual, non-transferable use of Kermit 95, with no copy counting required, as long as they are students at or employed by the institution. End-user technical support must be furnished by the institution. Technical support to the institution is furnished through a single technical point of contact with the Kermit Project at Columbia University.
For any single college or university:
For a large university system, such as a statewide system (e.g. all of SUNY):
An annual billing license can be converted to a lifetime license for a one-time fee of $2000 (single college or university) or $10000 (university system).
All prices are in US dollars and apply worldwide. Rates are subject to adjustment. Prior Kermit 95 purchases – shrink-wrap or bulk – are not creditable towards the academic site license.
The institution must assume responsibility for preventing all manner of external access to the software, including, but not limited to, redistribution of the software in any form outside the institution by students, faculty, or staff, or placing of the software on file servers, ftp servers, or Web pages that are accessible from outside the institution.
Bulk licenses are not intended for single-copy retail distribution. Individual end users must receive the fully documented and supported shrink wrapped retail package. Redistribution of bulk license copies is appropriate in a consulting, contracting, bundling, or embedding framework.
If the licensee has purchased shrink-wrapped copies for resale or redistribution, then each end user registers each individual copy of the software using the serial number provided. If the licensee has purchased a bulk right-to-copy license, then a single serial number and registration applies to all copies.
