* THIS IS NOT FREE SOFTWARE!
Although I'd love for it to be free, the truth is it just took
SO MUCH WORK that I absolutely must get something out of it.
Please understand that in my opinion, to try to integrate with
QuickBooks from scratch would be nothing short of proposterous
with this ready-made gem looking you straight in the eye. I'll
just leave it at that. :)

* Use of the Trial Version
This is a trial version. For the most part, this is a working
copy that is restricted to working with a small set of QuickBooks
objects.

Use of the full version of this QuickBooks Rubygem is subject to a
fee. BehindLogic has developed this QuickBooks Rubygem out of its
own necessity and the necessity of others; and because of the large
number of hours required to complete such a task, BehindLogic has
decided to provide it to others for use at a decent fee. For the
current fee, visit behindlogic.com or contact gems@behindlogic.com.

* Extent of permission
This QuickBooks Rubygem shall only be used for its packaged
capabilities. It is provided as-is. You MAY NOT redistribute any
code contained within this library. You MAY NOT include any code
contained within this library within an open source project, when
in doing so effectively releases the code to the public. Remember,
the purpose of this License is to allow you to fully use this gem,
after you have paid your due. BehindLogic has spent countless
hours on this work, and seeks to be compensated over time for its
work.

* Support, Upgrades and Bugfixes
Agreement for Support will be discussed elsewhere, such as when you
communicate your purchase of a license from BehindLogic. Upgrades
are to be granted upon request at a fraction of the initial fee
paid. Upgrades are not guaranteed to be created for new versions of
QuickBooks, and the timeliness of this service is not guaranteed
since newer versions of QuickBooks aren't guaranteed by Intuit to
follow patterns of their predecessors. Incentive monies, to a
certain point, help to speed up the work when necessary. Bugfixes
will be treated with care and will be worked on for free; however,
again, timeliness is not guaranteed, but incentive monies can be
offered to expedite the bug squashing.
