If I had already bought SiP/APD license with 99 YEAR PRODUCT LICENSES in last year.
For cost saving, if I didn't pay maintenance fee in next year, what kind of result will have?
Maintenance fee is an option or a must in Japan ?
Nothing will happen. I bought SiP license for my website and not paying any type of maintenance fee. Every thing is working fine.
You will not get updates and will be limited to actual version.
Maintenace provides both access to bug correction/enhencment and new versons of the tool. Its upo to you to know what is beterr for you.
Warn: if next year you whish to switch to a newer version you certainly will pay for a new licence instead of maintenance i guess: ask cadence or its representive for such questions
