Hiveware policy consists of the following where hive stands for Hyperstructured Interactive Virtual Environment software:
Hives are created by signing an Sdcdc Domain Contract. Optionally, each new hive may be for-profit or non-profit. For-profit hives automatically maintain a digital bank account from which revenues and obligations may be received and disbursed. The setting up of this account is part of the SignupAuthentication procedure.
Any member of any hive may sign someone else up as a member of his hive providing that the new person agrees to their hive's rules of order.
Becoming a member of a particular hive conveys rights to patents and trademarks. The new subscriber has the right and capability to receive immediate and continual updates from any and all of the hive's authors.
Any hive member may create a contract with any new subscriber for the establishment of a new hive using the provided Sdcdc Domain Contract where Sdcdc stands for Synchronous Distributed Context Distributed Content.
Each hive member can obtain technical and customer support from any or designated members of his hive regarding his hive's content and behavior. Should his hive's technical and customer support not be sufficient, he may obtain support from his ancestor hive. Likewise, each hive can obtain technical and customer support from the hive who signed his hive up referrred to as his current ancestor hive.
Each hive may augment his ancestor's Hiveware policy but not substantively alter it. Each hive may augment his ancestor's inherited code behavior, but not substantially alter it.
Termination is defined as ceasing to have the right to further continual updates from a hive's authors. Termination does not affect already received structure and content. Each Hiveware author or subscriber is entitled to a time-stamped export in ISO 8879 SGML format. Termination criteria are set forth by the hive's rules and order. A subscriber's payment agreement with his hive will stop within 30 days after he unchecks the Hiveware Control tray menu item Always On.
Policy for choosing a hive:
·May not be one of the top hives as listed in ‘top Hiveware domains’.
·All new for-profit hives are automatically 50-50 contracts and are content only meaning the owner or members may signup any number of new members, but don’t have the ability to create new descendent hives. Different percentages may be negotiated with the ancestor at any time.
·For a fee a content site may be converted to a context hive which has a dashboard giving the owner the capability for creating new descendent hives.
