Basic Licensing Agreements Standard agreement that IBM customers accept when downloading, installing or purchasing IBM products. In most cases, the basic agreements are the International Program License Agreement (IPLA), which applies to guaranteed IBM programs, and rarely the International Licensing Agreement for Unsecured Programs (ILAN), the International Licensing Agreement for Program Evaluation (ILAE) or the International Licensing Agreement for Early Program Release (ILAR). The relevant basic agreements, LIs and TTPs, and the current price list at the time of purchase are the complete picture of a product`s license or specific version/version. Basic agreements contain significant licensing restrictions for all products. IPAA culture with under-capacity Agreeing, condition for under-capacity.

An example is the license: IBM WebSphere Interchange Server Processor Day OOCoD Temporary Use Charge International Passport Advantage Agreement (IPAA) An agreement for Passport Advantage or Passport Advantage Express (IPAA/IPAAe).
