Why use OEM Distribution Server License?

The OEM distribution server license is perpetual, and licensed per application. It is installed on a server, virtual machine or node. Pricing based on the number of instances deployed, with a minimum of 10 instances. This license allows you to generate an unlimited number of PDFs . The purchase of non-production servers is mandatory, which is why you can purchase it with a 50% discount. Please note that other discounts apply to quantity purchases.

You don't have to share your application and/or source code (closed-source)

This license has significant benefits when compared to AGPL, because it releases you from “copyleft” AGPL license requirements, as well as from the requirements to not change the PDF Producer line in the document’s properties. It offers indemnification in the event of IP (intellectual property) or patent infringement and grants you access to iText’s professional and dedicated support team.

No extra license needed for your application users.

The end-users of your application don’t need a full iText license, since they only use the iText functionalities within your application.

Use Case: Archiving

You create and distribute an ECM product that can create documents for archiving purposes. Your previous formats could not guarantee preservation, so you want to incorporate iText’s PDF/A feature with some content structure. Your clients now receive your closed-source ECM product with iText features in the back end.
