Why do I need to register to access the code?

The SSB-ERSEM software is provided for free under the conditions outlined in the L-GPL licence. In order to guarantee ongoing maintenance, improvement and future development we need to demonstrate the strength and impact of the model through the collection of some basic information from our user base. In addition to this, you will get access to our user mailing list where you can discuss problems and suggestions with the developers and other users and receive information and news on developments.
