    License Terms

      From license agreement:

       

      You may not use the Software or the Documentation to develop application(s) for distribution to third parties unless you are a member in good standing of the SOLIDWORKS Partner Program or have entered into an agreement with DS SolidWorks for such usage/distribution.

      So, most of the macros created by the conference participants - is a complete violation of the license agreement with SW?

              Although it may be very insignificant-sounding, I think there is a difference between "application" and "macro". It's likely at least small enough to be not worthwhile of the legal costs involved. I also can understand that SW Corp would feel a need to require an agreement with the developer of an application. If the application contained some type of problem, it could negatively impact the function/reputation of SW.

                  For this, SW prohibits the use of its trademarks and trade names of some variation in programs. This is enough.

                  The question is in the other - on the basis of the license agreement "Software or the Documentation" It also means "macros" and "program". And even here, on forum, posts with link to API Help - it's violation
