What you are saying is that the wishes of the previous owner of those meters are seen by themselves as being far more important than the rights of those who have actually paid money for, and now own of those meters.

This kind of customer hating market segmenting is done all the time. This particular nastiness has no effect on me but I hate this kind of cripple by intent engineering wherever I see it. Buy a product in the wrong channel and the OEM and their partners love to punish you. Crap should come with an FTC black box warning label. Don't expect this stuff to work beyond the limited scope we segmented it into. Yes customer, you bought it, now you are SOL. We got your money, no we could not give two blanks what happens to you. It has often been said if being had is inevitable you might as well enjoy it if you can. If you love how they treated you the first time back right to our loading dock and we will take your money again. The fun just never ends.

Just so I get this straight:

X-rite sells instruments. If you are a software developer and wish to enable use of those instruments with your software, you have to purchase a license to use x-rite's drivers. Alternatively, you can reverse engineer your own driver (which I understand is perfectly legal).

Presumably, X-rite does this so that it can make a further profit off the use of these instruments (beyond the profits generated through sale of the instruments themselves), either by selling driver licenses, or by forcing people to use X-rite software. In some situations, X-rite may form alliances with companies, such as SpectraCal, and grant licenses for some of their instruments.

Have I got that right?

Due diligence folks. Both Spectracal and Chromapure are pretty clear on which meters (and sub-versions thereof) they support. Furthermore, a simple question, e-mail, private/public-message and / or phone call would be all takes to clear up any supported meters confusion.

There's really nothing more to see here, folks. smile.gif

Probably too OT to continue such a discussion here.

I mean it's not like we've never seen this kind of thing before.

see also: Display2 vs. DisplayLT.

DataColor/Colorvision had similar tiered software licensing system back in the day.

In any case, it's a bit pointless to yell at Spectracal over this.
