Title: Clarification on DSSR licensing
Post by: xiangjun on May 31, 2021, 01:58:55 pm
Once in a while I receive emails from prospective users, both commercial and academic, about DSSR licensing from the Columbia Technology Venture (CTV) (http://innovation.columbia.edu/technologies/CU20391). Louis made the following explicit suggestion in a recent thread titled "Bug or feature (?) : residue numbering not understood (http://forum.x3dna.org/rna-structures/bug-or-feature-()-residue-numbering-not-understood/)":

Quote from: Louis
I suggest you summarize the content of the [CTV] page in a forum post, to provide a reliable source of information about DSSR licensing, maybe?

There are two types of DSSR Pro licenses, as shown below:
Users of DSSR Pro, both commercial and academic, receive first-rate support directly from the developer. The open 3DNA Forum, private email, and virtual meetings are all options for contact, depending on what is most convenient for the users.

The free DSSR Basic academic license is no longer available as of November 11, 2021. Due to a lack of government funding, only DSSR Pro is offered for academic and commercial usage as outlined above. For further information, please visit the CTV DSSR website (http://innovation.columbia.edu/technologies/CU20391).
