27.7 Intellectual property license types

27.7.3 Limited or restricted

Limited rights and restricted rights apply only to noncommercial software/technical data, not to commercial off-the-shelf ("COTS") items. Such rights are similar to the rights that a supplier would acquire if it obtained software from a developer pursuant to a negotiated, two- party software license. Typical restrictions on software include limitations on the number of authorized “seats” (i.e., simultaneous users), on making more than minimum number of copies required for archiving, backup, etc., and on modifying software except as required for maintenance purposes.
