Eye-One Display 2 LICENSE

I’ve heard that Gretag has a liberal/flex licensing arrangement, and the purchaser of its Eye-One Display 2 and software is permitted to calibrate any monitor. Am I permitted to color calibrate my colleague’s computer monitor or is the license reserved exclusively for the purchaser’s own (multiple) computers?

The Eye-One Match software, which anyone can download, looks to the device for license info. So he who wields the device can profile whatever monitor they want.

You are correct. GretagMacbeth has an ‘Open License’ when you buy an
Eye-One product. You can literally load and leave the software
anywhere legally (as long as you have permission). The philosophy is
a good one apparently and seems to work. GretagMacbeth knows that if
they allow the software to proliferate, people will be inclined to
buy their hardware. Of course, the software only works (calibrates &
profiles) if you have a device connected.
