I have a few questions about the licenses for the Integrated Performance Primitives (IPP) library. My team is building a software application, and I am writing some of the effects for that application. For convenience, let's call that EffectsLibrary.dll. To use functions from the IPP library (perhaps I'm optimizing a routine), I obviously at least need one Single User License for myself. But what if a coworker writes a new effect - one that has nothing to do with the IPP and does not utilize any of its functions? Still, to compile that new effect into EffectsLibrary.dll, he will need the IPP library installed on his machine. Is he considered a user? Does he need a license too?
At heart, this question boils down to, does "using" the IPP mean? To me, "using" is developing code that calls functions that the library offers. "Using" is not compiling code that someone else wrote that has a dependency on the IPP, even though I didn't use it myself. But I don't know what legally is the right answer.
Thanks for the help!
