This is incorrect. You can give copies to staff and students, if you
jump through some hoops first.
"The license included with your software CD and on the download version
entitles your institution to install the software on all machines owned
or operated by your instititution. Review a copy of the full text of the
StarOffice Binary Code License or StarSuite Binary Code License.
To obtain permissions for your institution to replicate StarOffice and
distribute it to your constituents for their personal use, you will need
to be an institutional signatory and must complete a StarOffice or
StarSuite Distribution Agreement with Sun by following these steps..."
From the Distribution Agreement:
"“End User” means current graduate, undergraduate, full and part-time
students and Customer's employees to whom the BCL applies and to whom
Customer furnish the Software for internal use and not for resale,
marketing, or leasing."
Individuals can get the software themselves - from the above website:
"If you are a student, researcher, staff, or faculty member you can
download StarOffice for free from Sun's Software Download Center. Login
into the Sun Software Download Center by using your user name and
password. If you do not have a user name or password for the Sun
Software Download Center please register."
Hope this helps!
