"C. Additionally, Maintenance customers may choose to license the Shake 4.1 Source Code for $50,000. The Source Code license includes a 5,000 seat volume license of Shake 4.1. This offer is designed to help facilities with significant Shake investments maintain a reliable and controllable visual effects pipeline. Maintenance customers that wish to license the Shake 4.1 Source Code must do so by July 23, 2006. Apple reserves the right to refuse any maintenance customer source Code access."
That's a *5000* seat license of the latest version of the software. *$100* a seat.
Spin away how Apple is abandoning existing customers.
