IN response to Gerald’s statement below, I wrote Eric Damery directly on Sunday, July 4, and received a response today.
Here is my question to him:
Good morning, or afternoon; whenever you read this,
On one of the Jaws lists, the issue of to SMA or not to SMA has been coming up because of the sale.
It is being said that the SMA is going to be faded out and everyone wil be forced into the annual license.
Is that true?
Here is his response:
Not at all. There are currently two options and I expect that to continue.
If you are in ILM and current, maintaining a two year SMA is an option today. $150 is retail and you can get it during the show for $120. Pretty good deal.
For those who have let their license lapse, or don't own one, than paying annually with the Portal solution will likely be less expensive and thousands of customers have gone that direction.

Eventually, the SMA option is expected to be phased out, and all JAWS users will be switched to the annual subscription option, which will be more profitable for Freedom Scientific.
