  1. Bonjour, J'ai récemment eu à me pencher sur cet aspect de la licence FileMaker pour un client médecin spécialiste, ce qui m'a donné l'occasion d'échanger avec le service juridique de FileMaker. Leur réponse est intéressante et nous ouvre des portes. J'ai écrit à FileMaker : Here is my point: As you can read in the "FILEMAKER PRO ADVANCED SOFTWARE LICENSE", at the beginning of page 4 : THE SOFTWARE IS NOT INTENDED FOR USE IN THE OPERATION OF NUCLEAR FACILITIES, AIRCRAFT NAVIGATION OR COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS, AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEMS, LIFE SUPPORT MACHINES OR OTHER EQUIPMENT IN WHICH THE FAILURE OF THE SOFTWARE COULD LEAD TO DEATH, PERSONAL INJURY, OR SEVERE PHYSICAL OR ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE. [On notera que la traduction française de ce paragraphe (mentionnée dans le post d' @Olivier Devriese) pourrait être discutée] Please let me give you an example. A [specialist physician] operates [...] his patients with a laser treatment [...]. He needs a FileMaker app that would: 1. Let the patients fill in some medical information 2. Read and extract some numbers from pdf documents (which are produced by machines following a medical examination of the patient) 3. Proceed these numbers and give the results of calculations The [specialist physician] would then manually enter these results (numbers produced by FileMaker) in the laser machine, he will push the button, and this machine will "operate" the patient. Are we in or out the limit of FileMaker license? La réponse de leur "legal team" est la suivante : Section 2 in the FMPA EULA is intended to address situations in which the failure of the software could lead to death, personal injury, etc. In the scenario described below it doesn’t sound like the software is being incorporated or directly used by the machine, but instead the [specialist physician] is using the software to make some calculations that he/she would then input into another machine. It doesn’t fall squarely under the prohibition that section 2 was intended for. However, FileMaker cannot provide any advice as to how you should or should not use the software. J'en conclus que nous pourrions utiliser FileMaker dans un contexte médical tant que "the software is [not] incorporated or directly used by [a] machine".
