I'm currently evaluating the WPF DataGrid component but am unclear on licensing. The website blurb states that it is a "perpetual" license, but section 7 of the license agreement suggests that I need an active subscription to continue using the component to develop software. I've asked Xceed, and although the response was a bit vague, it appears to confirm that this is the case. Can anyone else verify this?
I'm already struggling to justify $1500 for this component (per dev), and I'll be blown out of the water if this is an annual subscription model!
