Sub Licence Agreement (v1.2)
This agreement is designed to authorise CodeCogs to distribute, on your behalf, any material your submit to CodeCogs. Furthermore it permits CodeCogs to take action to protect your investment, while also guaranteeing developers continued access and support for the components they license.
At all times, CodeCogs must be able to guarantee the availability of licences, so that customers can expand their operations and reliance on any one component and CodeCogs as a whole.

CodeCogs respects copyright law and needs to be able to pursue individuals who make unauthorised use of the software. Therefore by entering into this agreement, you authorise CodeCogs to pursue offending parties on your behalf.
In summary this agreement does the following:
- Authorises CodeCogs to sub-license your code to others. ;

- Guarantees you a percentage of any revenue that CodeCogs receives from the licensing of code you submit.
