You need Office licenses volume or otherwise: See https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/volume-licensing/2013/05/22/how-to-license-office-web-apps-server/


Office Web Apps 2013 is a separate product which needs to be installed on a separate server. It can now be used with Exchange Server 2013, Lync 2013 .

For licensing Office Web Apps 2013:-

  1. If you ONLY want to have the functionaly to VIEW the documents in your SharePoint ( and not EDIT them), then you do NOT need any license . Just install the product, configure it with SharePoint and you are good to go.

  2. If you want to VIEW & EDIT the documents, then you need to have a valid volume license of Office Professional or Office Standard (2010/2013).
