1. Grant of License and Term
The Software is licensed, not transferred or sold, to you by Notation Software Germany (the term “Notation Software” further used in this document stands for Notation Software Germany UG haftungsbeschränkt. “UG haftungsbeschränkt” is the official German term for a “Corporation with Limited Liability”) or it’s licensed marketing agents, and is protected by German copyright and intellectual property laws, and the laws of other countries under international treaty. This license agreement remains effective for any potential legal successor of Notation Software Germany UG (haftungsbeschränkt).

The LGPL license applies to these libraries and to the soundfont file.
This license does not grant you the use of other software products sold by Notation Software.
You may redistribute exact copies of the Notation Player installation program to anyone in its unmodified form via electronic means (Internet, bulletin boards, shareware distribution libraries, CD-ROMs, etc.).
