In the past the contract was always valid for 3 years, with license files that were valid for 1 year. The current license runs until January of next year.
Staff and students of the Faculty of Science (FNWI) may use Maple freely on campus and at home.
The other faculties have not paid for the license. Therefore they may are only allowed to use Maple incidentally without paying for the license. If they start to regularly use Maple, they have to buy a license from C&CZ for a price that is a good deal for both parties.
The newest versions of Maple can be found on the [[Install] network share. DVD's of Maple 13 and older can be borrowed from C&CZ system administration.
