Unless stated otherwise in the Legal Evidence, You are allowed to Sublicense the Software unlimited times.

A valid Developer license is required for every single Developer.
In consideration of the license set forth herein, you agree to pay a license fee (“License Fee”). CKSource shall specify the fee amount at the moment of the purchase.

The fees related to this Agreement do not include taxes. If CKSource is required to pay any sales, use, property, excise, value added, gross receipts, withholding or other taxes levied on the Software or support under this Agreement or on Your use thereof, then such taxes shall be billed to and paid by You. This Section does not apply to taxes based on CKSource net income, franchise taxes or CKSource’s employer contributions and taxes.
CKSource shall deliver to You an invoice for any due payment following this Agreement execution. You shall perform the full invoice payment in 7 calendar days.

All payments made hereunder are nonrefundable. You may not withhold or set off any amounts due under this Agreement. Failure to pay any fee when due shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement. In addition, if You fail to make any payments when due for support, upon written notice to You, CKSource shall cease providing support.
The expiration date for both the Upgrade Period and Support Period shall be automatically extended by successive cycles of 365 days (each one a “Renewal”). You agree to pay a fee for each Renewal at the beginning of each cycle. CKSource shall specify the annual Renewal fee amounts (“Renewal Price”) at the moment of the purchase.
CKSource shall invoice the Renewal fee at any moment following the first day of each Renewal period. Such invoices follow all provisions and restrictions as described in Section 8 of this Agreement.

The original source code ("Source Code") of the Software may be distributed by CKSource alongside its executable version, or as an integral part of it. You may modify and compile the Source Code. The Source Code or its modified version can be copied and distributed exclusively within the scope of this license as long as a valid license has been purchased for the distribution target. CKSource retains all rights over the Source Code and all its modified versions. Redistributions of the Source Code and modified versions of it must contain the original headers and copyright notices. Modifications to the Source Code must be explicitly and entirely identified in the Source Code files. This section of the license supersedes all modification restrictions imposed by other sections. You are not allowed to remove copyright notices nor make changes to the license validation code present in the Source Code.
