Matlab student/research problem
17 views (last 30 days)
If I have matlab student installed on my computer, is it illegal to develop any code for research on that computer, if I run the final analyses on a machine which has the research license? It would be nice to develop matlab code when I can't SSH into our linux machine.
I know that the FAQ says that you cannot use the student version for research, but in this case, I would only be using it to develop code, the final data analysis would be done on a machine that has MATLAB installed.

My reading of the license terms is that it would be a license violation. License violations are a gray area as to whether they are civil or criminal matters.
Student Version is strictly for doing class work and learning how to use MATLAB and related tools. "Research" work can be done with a Student Version license only to the extent that the Research is part of your degree requirements.
The Academic Institution can authenticate you against an Academic Network License they hold; that might involve a small VPN into the university network to communicate with the license server.
