In particular, the user agrees not to cause or permit the disassembly, recompilation, or reverse engineering of any Licensed Program. In jurisdictions where a right to reverse engineer is provided by law unless information is available about products in order to achieve interoperability, functional compatibility, or similar objectives, the user agrees to submit a detailed written proposal to Licensor concerning User's information needs before engaging in reverse engineering. Licensor is the owner of, or has the rights to distribute, all of the software components of the Licensed Programs or Services, the forms generated by the Licensed Programs or Services, and the Documentation for the Licensed Programs or Services. The Licensed Programs and the Documentation are also protected under applicable copyright laws and User's right to use the Licensed Programs and the Documentation is limited to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement. Any use of the Licensed Programs by the U.S. Government, including but not limited to any Educational Institutions under its jurisdiction or under the corresponding States' jurisdiction, is subject to 'restricted rights' as that term is defined in FAR 52.227-19(c)(2) or DFAR 252.227.7013(c)(1) (if used in a defense related agency).
