Both MathOptimizer Professional and LGO are trademarks of PCS. For the purposes of this Licensing Agreement, we refer to LGO (a standalone solver suite) as part MathOptimizer Professional, since it is a key component of the MathOptimizer Professional delivery.
MathOptimizer Professional and its documentation—including all files distributed as part of the product delivery—may not be changed or modified in any way, except by PCS. Regardless of how a copy of MathOptimizer Professional is obtained, it is requested that all of its users comply with the licensing and registration provisions if they use the software.

Registered MathOptimizer Professional users are granted permission to use all information provided by the User's Guide, and to apply the software in their own work, without any restriction, in accordance with the (commercial or noncommercial) license type granted by PCS. If MathOptimizer Professional is used as part of a new software application, then its users are requested to maintain all MathOptimizer Professional-related copyright information displayed in that application. The MathOptimizer Professional software product cannot be made part of any standalone user application that is further distributed without making appropriate licensing arrangements with PCS.
