License Information documents

Base license agreements overview

Below are the current versions of IBM's Client Relationship Agreement (CRA) and the International Program License Agreement (IPLA) family of agreements. They are offered here for reference only. For the IPLA family, you can view the entire booklet or the pages for a single language.

Along with the License Information (LI), one of the IPLA family of agreements is provided with related IBM software when it is delivered. If Client does not have previously agreed to license terms in effect for the Program, either the International Program License Agreement or the International License Agreement for Non-Warranted Programs as identified in the LI applies. Some LIs were released under earlier versions of these base license agreements, which you can view with the LI search.

The CRA was introduced in 2014. The IPLA family was updated in 2009; Indonesian was added in 2010.
