This VENDOR.DOC describes the only terms by which we (APOGEE
SOFTWARE PRODUCTIONS, P.O. Box 496389, Garland, TX 75049, (800)
426-3123)) permit Commercial Distribution of this Program.

"Commercially distribute" means to distribute for money or other
consideration. It includes copying onto magnetic disks, CD-Roms
or any other tangible medium now or subsequently known, and
distribution by retail rack, direct mail, catalog, advertisement,
or trade show. It does *not* include distribution by any not-
for-profit organization, by any hobby, user or computer interest
group to its members, or electronically by any BBS.

"Program" means this Version 1.4 and its related files (including
this one) distributed by us under the marks "WOLFENSTEIN 3-D" and
"APOGEE" (collectively, the "Trademark"), as it may be upgraded or
otherwise modified from time-to-time.

Distribution is "non-commercial" when for free, or by any not-for-
profit corporation or tax exempt organization, or by hobby, user or
computer interest group to its members, or by any BBS.

A. OWNERSHIP: Except to the extent expressly licensed by us, we
have and reserve the exclusive copyright and other right, title
and interest to distribute the Program and all earlier versions
of it, and the right to use the Trademark in connection with them.

B. THINGS YOU MUST DO: You may Commercially Distribute the Program
under this License so long as you:
[1] Market it as shareware using "try before you buy" or similar words,
[2] Try to sell only the most current version of it,
[3] Make distribution copies only from master copies received directly
from us using high quality disks and duplication technology,
[4] Distribute the complete Program including all of its related files,
each in compressed or other format as released by us,
[5] Include the word "Apogee" in every description of the Program used
in your catalog or other promotional material.

C. Your right to distribute under this license is personal, and
does not include any right to [1] sublicense or otherwise cause
any copying or distribution of the Program by anyone else without
our consent in writing, or [2] rent or lease the Program, or
[3] sell it as part of any hardware or software package.

D. THE PROGRAM IS PROVIDED "AS-IS". NO WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND,
EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ARE MADE AS TO IT OR ANY MEDIUM IT MAY BE ON.
WE WILL PROVIDE NO REMEDY FOR INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE
OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES ARISING FROM IT, INCLUDING SUCH FROM
NEGLIGENCE, STRICT LIABILITY, OR BREACH OF WARRANTY OR CONTRACT,
EVEN AFTER NOTICE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

F. TERM: This License terminates upon 30 days prior written notice
by either us to the other. If terminated by us by such notice, you
may distribute the Program until the earlier of 30 days after the
termination date in the notice, or completion of the distribution
of the copies you have in stock. Sections A, D and H will survive
the termination of this License.

H. MISCELLANY
[1] Since we would be irreparably damaged if Section A, B or C
of this License were not specifically enforced, we will be
entitled without bond, other security or proof of damages, to
appropriate equitable remedies with respect to breaches of such
sections, in addition to such other remedies as we may have.
[2] You will hold us, our partners, contractors, employees and
agents harmless from damage, loss and expense arising directly or
indirectly from your acts and omissions in copying and
distributing the Program.
[3] With respect to every matter arising under this License, you
consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the state
and federal courts sitting in Dallas, Texas, and to service by
certified mail, return receipt requested, or as otherwise
permitted by law.

"Distribution is "non-commercial" when for free, or by any not-for-

computer interest group to its members, or by any BBS."

What they say in this is how you can legally SELL is, it's legal to share it for free through electronic media, like BBS's, but you can't sell it over a BBS, you have to make exact copies from a master disk.

Yea, that kind of "can't sell it" crapola is one reason why the DOSGAMES.com CD will never happen. (Another reason is that I don't have the time/effort/skill/etc to do it. Wink)

The only reasons I figured it was illigal to download was

1. ID still sells it on their site

2. The only places I see it for download are on A-ware/Warez sites.

Technically, if you see it on an abandonware site, that site is oldwarez, since ID's still selling it.

Anyway, even abandonware's illegal. Just buy the darn thing.

There's a freeware game at Game Hippo called "Spear Ressurection", though, that's a fanmade sequel to "Spear of Destiny". It's pretty good, too, if you can get past the first level. The first level sucks.
