Use of the Software under this Agreement and the License is permitted only upon payment in full of a license fee, which shall be established by Licensor and/or a separate dealer/licensor authorized by Licensor and which may be changed from time to time (the “License Fee”).  The License Fee associated with a License for a personal handheld device shall be renewed on a month-to-month basis.  If You make any unauthorized copies of the License or the Software, or permit unauthorized devices and/or uses to utilize an authorized License or the Software, You shall be liable not only for the License Fee associated with any such unauthorized uses, but also for any damages in addition to such License Fees that are suffered by Licensor, or its authorized dealers and/or licensors, as a result thereof.
