Today we are announcing the withdrawal of the requirement that starting April 1, 2014, customers sign either the " IBM® Agreement for Acceptance of the IBM License Agreement for Machine Code" or the " IBM Customer Agreement, Attachment for Acceptance of the IBM License Agreement for Machine Code" (either referred to as the "License Acceptance Agreement") before IBM ships certain Machines, as originally announced for Revised terms and order process for IBM Machine Code License Acceptance Agreement, contained in Hardware Announcements 113-027, dated February 19, 2013 and 113-139, dated July 16, 2013.

IBM will no longer require that Customers sign and return to IBM an agreement documenting their acceptance of the IBM License Agreement for Machine Code as part of the order process for the following IBM Machines:

IBM System z® : 2097, 2098, 2458, 2817, 2818, 2827, and 2828

For such IBM Machines, the user will convey its acceptance of the IBM License Agreement for Machine Code through the use of the Machine. Such IBM Machines are now designated as "Acceptance-By-Use Machines" as described in the license.

Customers with any questions should contact their IBM representative.
