    License issue for own Web application

    I have made an application that fetches coordinates from a web page and returns the nearest street result to the web page. One client license version of MapPoint is used for this operation. Is this sufficent regarding license issues?

    Microsoft, in it's infinite wisdom, has made the MapPoint 2004 EULA extremely specific about NOT exposing any objects (maps, directions, etc) to the internet. So basicaly, your license for the browser that will view the info is fine only if that browser is on a LAN or intranet....no internet. And you must have a license for each browser that will view the map info.

    Clearly the EULA is designed to encourage you to use the MapPoint webservice, which works great for this kind of application. Unfortunatley, it will cost you about $15,000 per year. And currently, there is no MapPoint webservice pricing for hobbiest/personal use.

    Sometimes you just wanna give Mr. Gates a big hug, dontcha?
