In order to allow the small agency to claim the factory as its own – and thus to argue that clause (a) applies – it should have a provision in its contractual agreement with the company stipulating that the small agency retains ownership of the software and other intellectual property rights it creates during the contract. It may also contain a provision that gives the company an unlimited and permanent right to use the software for its internal operation and/or to make it available to its customers as a mobile store landlord. “Example 2: A Fortune 500 company outsourced the development of its mobile store landlord app to a small agency. The application is not an open source project. The agency has 5 employees working on the project and wants to use Visual Studio Community 2013. Since the Agency is a contractor developing this application for the Fortune 500 company and the application is not an open source project, the Visual Studio Community agency cannot use in 2013 to develop and test the application. “If you`re a Java developer, can you use Java to build a commercial application? If you can answer yes, you can also answer yes to Visual Studio Community Edition. An unlimited number of users within an organization can use Visual Studio Community for the following scenarios: in a classroom learning environment, for academic research, or for contributions to open source projects. According to the paragraphs above, the organization should earn less than a million dollars and have less than 250 PCs. Clause (a): “working on your own applications… The example Cited by Dudley is a situation in which the small agency creates what is called “work for rent” – the work in question will be owned by the Fortune 500 company. Usually, this is not the small agency`s “own application”.
The agency can`t sell it, for example, or give it to street corners or as open source – because the work created belongs to the Fortune 500 company. Note that this would still be the case if the company that outsources the work to the small agency was a small company. U.S. law is clear in these situations: works that would normally be the property of their creator(s) are the property of the outsourcing company. The size of the outsourcing company is not the dominant factor. It is in the nature of the outsourcing relationship. (The same ownership rules apply if you agree to perform development work for a company as a temporary contractor.) I`ve done a little more research, and it looks like small teams can sell apps built with VS2013Comm. There are no restrictions in the EULA who can buy it.
I think the keywords are to sell and outsource. If you sell, it`s still your app. When outsourcing, the application usually does not belong to you, but to the customers. This is my story, and I stick to it. Tell me if you think I`m wrong. Since Visual Studio 2013 and MSDN Licensing Whitepaper – November-2014 Page 10: So your small team can`t develop a custom app for large enterprises. I don`t know about boxing apps. I don`t know what it is like “individually.” The reason Microsoft offers the community edition is to compete with open source languages like Java….
