Q: When do I need to comply with the Made with Macromedia Logo Requirements?

A: If you are a user of Macromedia Authorware or Director and create an end-user product to distribute outside of your organization, you need to comply with the Made with Macromedia Logo Requirements. The Made With Macromedia program does not apply to Director MX 2004. Please refer to the product's End-User License Agreement (EULA) for more details.


 
Q: Do I need to use the Made with Macromedia logo if I distribute my product within my organization?

A: No, the Run-time Distribution Agreement is not required if the end-user product is only used within the Publisher or Developer's organization. A Run-time Distribution Agreement is not required if the Developer is employed by the Publisher to create the end-user product to be used internally, within the Publisher's organization.


 
Q: Do I need to use the new logo?

A: Yes, you have to use the new logo and follow the new guidelines that can be obtained on Macromedia's Web site at http://www.macromedia.com/support/programs/mwm/ . The new logo must be used regardless of what version of Macromedia Authorware and/or Director you used to create your end-user software.

Q: Who needs to sign the Run-Time Distribution Agreement, the Publisher or the Developer?

A: The Publisher/Developer need to sign the agreement. If the Developer is different from the Publisher, the Publisher should sign the Run-Time Distribution Agreement.


Q: What is the difference between a Publisher and a Developer?

A: A developer is someone who creates multimedia applications. A publisher markets and distributes products to market. Some developers publish their own work, while other developers use a publisher to market the application they've created.


 
Q: Do I need to include a Macromedia copyright statement?

A: Yes, incorporate the appropriate Macromedia copyright statement into the splash or credits screen of the end-user product if you are not including the logo on the outside packaging.


 
Q: What steps do I need to take to comply with the Run-time Distribution Agreement?

A: Complete and return one copy of the Run-time Distribution Agreement no later than 30 days after you ship. The agreement becomes effective upon receipt by Macromedia.


 
Q: Must I wait for a response from Macromedia with regard to our Run-time Distribution Agreement and Exhibit before printing, manufacturing, and packaging my end-user software?

A: No, if you do not hear from Macromedia within 30 days from the day you send in the Run-time Distribution Agreement form without revision, you can assume that your Agreement has been processed and approved by Macromedia.
