This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the compatibility of equipment, accessories, replacement parts, or service is a paramount consideration. Item is also copyrighted and is only available from the holder of the copyright. The vendor owns the rights to the software in use and is solely responsible for development and maintenance of the product to retain in production-use condition and for development of new versions of the software. Any other vendor would simply be a middleman in the process.
