I'm sorry, Alice isn't with Apple any more. Last year, the Cambridge
lab joined DPG (the Developer Products Group), so we are no longer
part of ATG (the Advanced Technology Group)

I'd like to, but we can't say anything until the negotiations are complete.

 >>1) If we give Agentsheets (a MCL image) to somebody having a MCL license, do

 >>   Are we on the save side (legally) if they fax us a MCL license?

Any MCL customer can distribute an unlimited number of MCL applications
with a one-time license fee. For non-commercial apps, this is $10, for
commercial it's $100. Contact the Apple Software Licensing
department at SW.LICENSE@applelink.apple.com, or 512-919-2645.

 >>2) Editor and Compiler are essential to Agentsheets. Is there anything else

 >>Email below)?

You can distribute MCL images with the editor (Fred) intact, but in order to
distribute the compiler I'm sure we can reach an agreement. Please contact
the product manger, Rick Fleischman (Rick_Fleischman@powertalk.apple.com).
