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?

The different DSSR license types are thus summarized below:

Users of DSSR Pro, both commercial and academic, receive first-rate support directly from the developer. For the benefit of the community, the open 3DNA Forum is the preferred method of communication. On the other hand, I'm fine with email or virtual meetings if that's what the DSSR Pro users want. Please keep in mind that the CTV does not provide a free DSSR Pro evaluation license.

Free academic users of DSSR Basic are welcome to ask DSSR-related questions on the 3DNA Forum. I will fix any reported and verified bugs as soon as possible. I might also be available to answer general questions, especially about reproducing published results or document features. Requests for additional features, however, may necessitate an upgrade to DSSR Pro. I would only respond to questions from free academic users via the open 3DNA Forum; no email or virtual meetings.

Please contact CTV via email (techtransfer@columbia.edu and CC to xiangjun@x3dna.org) if you have any additional questions about DSSR licensing. If you are unable to contact CTV via its DSSR website or email, please report your problem here. I'll then do my best to assist.

PS: Chrome is the best browser for accessing the DSSR website on the CTV (http://innovation.columbia.edu/technologies/CU20391). Safari (on macOS) and Opera have also been reported to work flawlessly. On the other hand, you may experience issues with these browsers (http://forum.x3dna.org/rna-structures/bug-or-feature-()-residue-numbering-not-understood/): Firefox, Edge, or Vivaldi.

Dear Xiang-Jun,
 
I am sorry to interrupt you. As you mentioned that academic users can have free access to the DSSR Basic license, where can I get it? And would you mind sharing the link to download the DSSR Basic version? Thank you very much for your attention and thank you in advance.

Best regards,

Ying
