UCSF Chimera and UCSF ChimeraX are each licensed commercially based on a non-exclusive, nontransferable, 3-year license. The two programs are licensed separately. In other words, your company will need to purchase a separate license for each. Their licensing terms, however, are the same.
Licensing costs are based on the number of users per company site:
These fees are per entity and the definition of licensee does not include the company's affiliates or subsidiaries. Each affiliate or subsidiary must acquire a separate license from UCSF. A separate license is also required for different sites of the same company.
Commercial licensing is handled by a licensing officer in the UCSF Office of Technology Management. If your company is interested in pursuing a license agreement, please contact us at email@example.com. Since the software is provided for a nominal fee compared to similar products on the market, we don’t negotiate changes to the language of the license.
