zMUD contains advanced copyright protection.
Attempts to modify the zMUD software, use an invalid
registration code, or attempts to circumvent the
copy protection can cause zMUD to stop functioning.
In addition, such illegal activities may prevent the
user from using zMUD or any future Zugg Software
products in the future.
To protect its copyright, zMUD sends your Registration
ID and your Hard disk serial number in encrypted form
to a registration server on the Internet which verifies
that the registration information is correct. For
unregistered users of zMUD, the number of execution
trials remaining is sent and verified by the server.
The Hard disk serial number, along with your IP address
is used to uniquely identify your computer.
No other information from your system is sent.
This method of verifying registration and protecting
copyright has been deemed reasonable and legal. If you
do not wish this information sent to the Zugg Software
server, do not accept this license agreement, and
delete the zMUD software from your computer.
EVALUATION AND REGISTRATION
This is not free software. You are hereby licensed
to use this software for evaluation purposes for
30 executions. After running this program 30 times
it will expire and stop functioning. In order to
reactivate the software a registration fee is required.
This software may be registered using the supplied
REGISTER program, or via an SSL-enabled broswer from
the zMUD web page at http://www.zuggsoft.com/.
When payment is received, you will receive a user ID
code that can be entered into the Register option
in the Help menu of zMUD to register your copy.
Alteration or patching of zMUD in order to bypass the
30-execution limit is a violation of U.S. and
international copyright laws. Attempts to circumvent
zMUD copy protection methods may cause you to lose
your full 30 evaluations. There is no way to restore
evaluations that are lost. Registration payments
