Abstract

See full text

An image forming apparatus having variable program configuration loaded thereto cannot appropriately manage the usage of a program if the apparatus is provided with a counter for statically managing the usage of the program. An image forming apparatus is disclosed with the configuration including management means for managing the remainder of a right of usage according to license information about an application loaded to a peripheral device or a function of the peripheral device, and distribution means for distributing a right of usage of an application and a function to each peripheral device.
