Rolling out Pro/Desktop software to students
I'm going through checking all of our licenses at the moment and as a few of the Technology teachers have said, according to our license, PTC Pro/Desktop 8 can be rolled out to a max of 100 students while they are at the school.
Have any of you guys rolled out any software to your students? How are you keeping control/covering your back as no doubt there will be students who will distribute to people who shouldn't have it
Im thinking of writing a short terms and conditions statement on the CD case cover, maybe get them to sign that they agree and using a 10 CD library system.

We lend them the CDs for Pro/Desktop, Autograph, and I think 2D Design.

There is very little you can do to stolp them illegally copying the CDs when they shouldn't be, but they won't get any of the updates, and eventually the software will no longer work, or be supplanted by something better/cheaper.
It's all done a little ad-hoc, the Tech dept lend their CDs and the Maths dept lend their CDs.
I was wanting to create a decent School specific CDrom like OpenDisc but if we are limited to 100 student users for Pro D, this isn't going to happen, I really should check this, hmm.. I suppose it's easier to just give them the Open CD.

When we distrubuted the software to students, we leant a copy of the software to them to install and bring it back the following day.
it was all down to trust, i dont think they lend it out any more but i suppose this is something we need to look into again!
I'll probably look into finding some form of copyright protection so the students cant copy our version of the disc.
