Dunno, probably there is. It also has a license agreement, does it not?

That's what I was afraid of... Any hints about an email address or a phone
number of a contact person to approach at IBM? We used to do business with
IBM Hungary, and have a quite serious relationship with them, as a
solution provider and education center for some IBM products but I don't
think that the licensing issues would be the responsibility of IBM
