I was somewhat confused about installing zend guard loader as there is this ominous sounding license agreement. So a sales chat with Zend revealed the following and I think it is good for the hosting community to understand this.

You
Trying to understand under what conditions we can install zend guard loader on our web servers.
Chat started
Howard joined the chat

Howard
there are nolimits

You
When I go to install program on cpanel (easy apache), it warns me that I need to accept the license agreement, which talks about the licensee paying your fee

Howard
there is no fee for the loader
the Zend Server yes there is a fee

You
so for loader, who is the licensee, I am guessing whoever developed the php script?

Howard
the licensee is the owner of the server on which it is installed

You
Ok, so I am a shared web hosting company. I own the servers, that makes me according to your comment the licensee, which means it is free or not?

Howard
it is free

You
Thanks for that, but I still have the issue of accepting http://static.zend.com/topics/guard-license-agreement.txt

Howard
well that is our standard EULA

You
wow

Howard
if you are using Zend Guard Loader there is no charge for it
if you are still uncertain then you could send an email to [Removed]
he looks after your market

You
thanks for the help

Howard
welcome
bye for now

Hello,

I recommend reaching out to the contact email suggested in that support chat with specific questions you have about their license agreement.

Thank you.
