f711708c jay2007-07-02 08:25:42 +00003 Version 3, 29 June 2007
16808258 kevin1996-02-04 20:35:04 +00004
f711708c jay2007-07-02 08:25:42 +00005 Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc. <http://fsf.org/>
16808258 kevin1996-02-04 20:35:04 +00006 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
7 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
8
9 Preamble
10
f711708c jay2007-07-02 08:25:42 +000011 The GNU General Public License is a free, copyleft license for
12software and other kinds of works.
13
14 The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed
15to take away your freedom to share and change the works. By contrast,
16the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to
17share and change all versions of a program--to make sure it remains free
18software for all its users. We, the Free Software Foundation, use the
19GNU General Public License for most of our software; it applies also to
20any other work released this way by its authors. You can apply it to
16808258 kevin1996-02-04 20:35:04 +000021your programs, too.
22
23 When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
24price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
25have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
f711708c jay2007-07-02 08:25:42 +000026them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you
27want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new
28free programs, and that you know you can do these things.
16808258 kevin1996-02-04 20:35:04 +000029
f711708c jay2007-07-02 08:25:42 +000030 To protect your rights, we need to prevent others from denying you
31these rights or asking you to surrender the rights. Therefore, you have
32certain responsibilities if you distribute copies of the software, or if
33you modify it: responsibilities to respect the freedom of others.
16808258 kevin1996-02-04 20:35:04 +000034
35 For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
f711708c jay2007-07-02 08:25:42 +000036gratis or for a fee, you must pass on to the recipients the same
37freedoms that you received. You must make sure that they, too, receive
38or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they
39know their rights.
40
41 Developers that use the GNU GPL protect your rights with two steps:
42(1) assert copyright on the software, and (2) offer you this License
43giving you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify it.
44
45 For the developers' and authors' protection, the GPL clearly explains
46that there is no warranty for this free software. For both users' and
47authors' sake, the GPL requires that modified versions be marked as
48changed, so that their problems will not be attributed erroneously to
49authors of previous versions.
50
51 Some devices are designed to deny users access to install or run
52modified versions of the software inside them, although the manufacturer
53can do so. This is fundamentally incompatible with the aim of
54protecting users' freedom to change the software. The systematic
55pattern of such abuse occurs in the area of products for individuals to
56use, which is precisely where it is most unacceptable. Therefore, we
57have designed this version of the GPL to prohibit the practice for those
58products. If such problems arise substantially in other domains, we
59stand ready to extend this provision to those domains in future versions
60of the GPL, as needed to protect the freedom of users.
61
62 Finally, every program is threatened constantly by software patents.
63States should not allow patents to restrict development and use of
64software on general-purpose computers, but in those that do, we wish to
65avoid the special danger that patents applied to a free program could
66make it effectively proprietary. To prevent this, the GPL assures that
67patents cannot be used to render the program non-free.
16808258 kevin1996-02-04 20:35:04 +000068
69 The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
70modification follow.
f711708c jay2007-07-02 08:25:42 +000071
72 TERMS AND CONDITIONS
73
74 0. Definitions.
75
76 "This License" refers to version 3 of the GNU General Public License.
77
78 "Copyright" also means copyright-like laws that apply to other kinds of
79works, such as semiconductor masks.
80
81 "The Program" refers to any copyrightable work licensed under this
82License. Each licensee is addressed as "you". "Licensees" and
83"recipients" may be individuals or organizations.
84
85 To "modify" a work means to copy from or adapt all or part of the work
86in a fashion requiring copyright permission, other than the making of an
87exact copy. The resulting work is called a "modified version" of the
88earlier work or a work "based on" the earlier work.
89
90 A "covered work" means either the unmodified Program or a work based
91on the Program.
92
93 To "propagate" a work means to do anything with it that, without
94permission, would make you directly or secondarily liable for
95infringement under applicable copyright law, except executing it on a
96computer or modifying a private copy. Propagation includes copying,
97distribution (with or without modification), making available to the
98public, and in some countries other activities as well.
99
100 To "convey" a work means any kind of propagation that enables other
101parties to make or receive copies. Mere interaction with a user through
102a computer network, with no transfer of a copy, is not conveying.
103
104 An interactive user interface displays "Appropriate Legal Notices"
105to the extent that it includes a convenient and prominently visible
106feature that (1) displays an appropriate copyright notice, and (2)
107tells the user that there is no warranty for the work (except to the
108extent that warranties are provided), that licensees may convey the
109work under this License, and how to view a copy of this License. If
110the interface presents a list of user commands or options, such as a
111menu, a prominent item in the list meets this criterion.
112
113 1. Source Code.
114
115 The "source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work
116for making modifications to it. "Object code" means any non-source
117form of a work.
118
119 A "Standard Interface" means an interface that either is an official
120standard defined by a recognized standards body, or, in the case of
121interfaces specified for a particular programming language, one that
122is widely used among developers working in that language.
123
124 The "System Libraries" of an executable work include anything, other
125than the work as a whole, that (a) is included in the normal form of
126packaging a Major Component, but which is not part of that Major
127Component, and (b) serves only to enable use of the work with that
128Major Component, or to implement a Standard Interface for which an
129implementation is available to the public in source code form. A
130"Major Component", in this context, means a major essential component
131(kernel, window system, and so on) of the specific operating system
132(if any) on which the executable work runs, or a compiler used to
133produce the work, or an object code interpreter used to run it.
134
135 The "Corresponding Source" for a work in object code form means all
136the source code needed to generate, install, and (for an executable
137work) run the object code and to modify the work, including scripts to
138control those activities. However, it does not include the work's
139System Libraries, or general-purpose tools or generally available free
140programs which are used unmodified in performing those activities but
141which are not part of the work. For example, Corresponding Source
142includes interface definition files associated with source files for
143the work, and the source code for shared libraries and dynamically
144linked subprograms that the work is specifically designed to require,
145such as by intimate data communication or control flow between those
146subprograms and other parts of the work.
147
148 The Corresponding Source need not include anything that users
149can regenerate automatically from other parts of the Corresponding
150Source.
151
152 The Corresponding Source for a work in source code form is that
153same work.
154
155 2. Basic Permissions.
156
157 All rights granted under this License are granted for the term of
158copyright on the Program, and are irrevocable provided the stated
159conditions are met. This License explicitly affirms your unlimited
160permission to run the unmodified Program. The output from running a
161covered work is covered by this License only if the output, given its
162content, constitutes a covered work. This License acknowledges your
163rights of fair use or other equivalent, as provided by copyright law.
164
165 You may make, run and propagate covered works that you do not
166convey, without conditions so long as your license otherwise remains
167in force. You may convey covered works to others for the sole purpose
168of having them make modifications exclusively for you, or provide you
169with facilities for running those works, provided that you comply with
170the terms of this License in conveying all material for which you do
171not control copyright. Those thus making or running the covered works
172for you must do so exclusively on your behalf, under your direction
173and control, on terms that prohibit them from making any copies of
174your copyrighted material outside their relationship with you.
175
176 Conveying under any other circumstances is permitted solely under
177the conditions stated below. Sublicensing is not allowed; section 10
178makes it unnecessary.
179
180 3. Protecting Users' Legal Rights From Anti-Circumvention Law.
181
182 No covered work shall be deemed part of an effective technological
183measure under any applicable law fulfilling obligations under article
18411 of the WIPO copyright treaty adopted on 20 December 1996, or
185similar laws prohibiting or restricting circumvention of such
186measures.
187
188 When you convey a covered work, you waive any legal power to forbid
189circumvention of technological measures to the extent such circumvention
190is effected by exercising rights under this License with respect to
191the covered work, and you disclaim any intention to limit operation or
192modification of the work as a means of enforcing, against the work's
193users, your or third parties' legal rights to forbid circumvention of
194technological measures.
195
196 4. Conveying Verbatim Copies.
197
198 You may convey verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you
199receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
200appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice;
201keep intact all notices stating that this License and any
202non-permissive terms added in accord with section 7 apply to the code;
203keep intact all notices of the absence of any warranty; and give all
204recipients a copy of this License along with the Program.
205
206 You may charge any price or no price for each copy that you convey,
207and you may offer support or warranty protection for a fee.
208
209 5. Conveying Modified Source Versions.
210
211 You may convey a work based on the Program, or the modifications to
212produce it from the Program, in the form of source code under the
213terms of section 4, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
214
215 a) The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified
216 it, and giving a relevant date.
217
218 b) The work must carry prominent notices stating that it is
219 released under this License and any conditions added under section
220 7. This requirement modifies the requirement in section 4 to
221 "keep intact all notices".
222
223 c) You must license the entire work, as a whole, under this
224 License to anyone who comes into possession of a copy. This
225 License will therefore apply, along with any applicable section 7
226 additional terms, to the whole of the work, and all its parts,
227 regardless of how they are packaged. This License gives no
228 permission to license the work in any other way, but it does not
229 invalidate such permission if you have separately received it.
230
231 d) If the work has interactive user interfaces, each must display
232 Appropriate Legal Notices; however, if the Program has interactive
233 interfaces that do not display Appropriate Legal Notices, your
234 work need not make them do so.
235
236 A compilation of a covered work with other separate and independent
237works, which are not by their nature extensions of the covered work,
238and which are not combined with it such as to form a larger program,
239in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an
240"aggregate" if the compilation and its resulting copyright are not
241used to limit the access or legal rights of the compilation's users
242beyond what the individual works permit. Inclusion of a covered work
243in an aggregate does not cause this License to apply to the other
244parts of the aggregate.
245
246 6. Conveying Non-Source Forms.
247
248 You may convey a covered work in object code form under the terms
249of sections 4 and 5, provided that you also convey the
250machine-readable Corresponding Source under the terms of this License,
251in one of these ways:
252
253 a) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
254 (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by the
255 Corresponding Source fixed on a durable physical medium
256 customarily used for software interchange.
257
258 b) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
259 (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by a
260 written offer, valid for at least three years and valid for as
261 long as you offer spare parts or customer support for that product
262 model, to give anyone who possesses the object code either (1) a
263 copy of the Corresponding Source for all the software in the
264 product that is covered by this License, on a durable physical
265 medium customarily used for software interchange, for a price no
266 more than your reasonable cost of physically performing this
267 conveying of source, or (2) access to copy the
268 Corresponding Source from a network server at no charge.
269
270 c) Convey individual copies of the object code with a copy of the
271 written offer to provide the Corresponding Source. This
272 alternative is allowed only occasionally and noncommercially, and
273 only if you received the object code with such an offer, in accord
274 with subsection 6b.
275
276 d) Convey the object code by offering access from a designated
277 place (gratis or for a charge), and offer equivalent access to the
278 Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no
279 further charge. You need not require recipients to copy the
280 Corresponding Source along with the object code. If the place to
281 copy the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source
282 may be on a different server (operated by you or a third party)
283 that supports equivalent copying facilities, provided you maintain
284 clear directions next to the object code saying where to find the
285 Corresponding Source. Regardless of what server hosts the
286 Corresponding Source, you remain obligated to ensure that it is
287 available for as long as needed to satisfy these requirements.
288
289 e) Convey the object code using peer-to-peer transmission, provided
290 you inform other peers where the object code and Corresponding
291 Source of the work are being offered to the general public at no
292 charge under subsection 6d.
293
294 A separable portion of the object code, whose source code is excluded
295from the Corresponding Source as a System Library, need not be
296included in conveying the object code work.
297
298 A "User Product" is either (1) a "consumer product", which means any
299tangible personal property which is normally used for personal, family,
300or household purposes, or (2) anything designed or sold for incorporation
301into a dwelling. In determining whether a product is a consumer product,
302doubtful cases shall be resolved in favor of coverage. For a particular
303product received by a particular user, "normally used" refers to a
304typical or common use of that class of product, regardless of the status
305of the particular user or of the way in which the particular user
306actually uses, or expects or is expected to use, the product. A product
307is a consumer product regardless of whether the product has substantial
308commercial, industrial or non-consumer uses, unless such uses represent
309the only significant mode of use of the product.
310
311 "Installation Information" for a User Product means any methods,
312procedures, authorization keys, or other information required to install
313and execute modified versions of a covered work in that User Product from
314a modified version of its Corresponding Source. The information must
315suffice to ensure that the continued functioning of the modified object
316code is in no case prevented or interfered with solely because
317modification has been made.
318
319 If you convey an object code work under this section in, or with, or
320specifically for use in, a User Product, and the conveying occurs as
321part of a transaction in which the right of possession and use of the
322User Product is transferred to the recipient in perpetuity or for a
323fixed term (regardless of how the transaction is characterized), the
324Corresponding Source conveyed under this section must be accompanied
325by the Installation Information. But this requirement does not apply
326if neither you nor any third party retains the ability to install
327modified object code on the User Product (for example, the work has
328been installed in ROM).
329
330 The requirement to provide Installation Information does not include a
331requirement to continue to provide support service, warranty, or updates
332for a work that has been modified or installed by the recipient, or for
333the User Product in which it has been modified or installed. Access to a
334network may be denied when the modification itself materially and
335adversely affects the operation of the network or violates the rules and
336protocols for communication across the network.
337
338 Corresponding Source conveyed, and Installation Information provided,
339in accord with this section must be in a format that is publicly
340documented (and with an implementation available to the public in
341source code form), and must require no special password or key for
342unpacking, reading or copying.
343
344 7. Additional Terms.
345
346 "Additional permissions" are terms that supplement the terms of this
347License by making exceptions from one or more of its conditions.
348Additional permissions that are applicable to the entire Program shall
349be treated as though they were included in this License, to the extent
350that they are valid under applicable law. If additional permissions
351apply only to part of the Program, that part may be used separately
352under those permissions, but the entire Program remains governed by
353this License without regard to the additional permissions.
354
355 When you convey a copy of a covered work, you may at your option
356remove any additional permissions from that copy, or from any part of
357it. (Additional permissions may be written to require their own
358removal in certain cases when you modify the work.) You may place
359additional permissions on material, added by you to a covered work,
360for which you have or can give appropriate copyright permission.
361
362 Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, for material you
363add to a covered work, you may (if authorized by the copyright holders of
364that material) supplement the terms of this License with terms:
365
366 a) Disclaiming warranty or limiting liability differently from the
367 terms of sections 15 and 16 of this License; or
368
369 b) Requiring preservation of specified reasonable legal notices or
370 author attributions in that material or in the Appropriate Legal
371 Notices displayed by works containing it; or
372
373 c) Prohibiting misrepresentation of the origin of that material, or
374 requiring that modified versions of such material be marked in
375 reasonable ways as different from the original version; or
376
377 d) Limiting the use for publicity purposes of names of licensors or
378 authors of the material; or
379
380 e) Declining to grant rights under trademark law for use of some
381 trade names, trademarks, or service marks; or
382
383 f) Requiring indemnification of licensors and authors of that
384 material by anyone who conveys the material (or modified versions of
385 it) with contractual assumptions of liability to the recipient, for
386 any liability that these contractual assumptions directly impose on
387 those licensors and authors.
388
389 All other non-permissive additional terms are considered "further
390restrictions" within the meaning of section 10. If the Program as you
391received it, or any part of it, contains a notice stating that it is
392governed by this License along with a term that is a further
393restriction, you may remove that term. If a license document contains
394a further restriction but permits relicensing or conveying under this
395License, you may add to a covered work material governed by the terms
396of that license document, provided that the further restriction does
397not survive such relicensing or conveying.
398
399 If you add terms to a covered work in accord with this section, you
400must place, in the relevant source files, a statement of the
401additional terms that apply to those files, or a notice indicating
402where to find the applicable terms.
403
404 Additional terms, permissive or non-permissive, may be stated in the
405form of a separately written license, or stated as exceptions;
406the above requirements apply either way.
407
408 8. Termination.
409
410 You may not propagate or modify a covered work except as expressly
411provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to propagate or
412modify it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under
413this License (including any patent licenses granted under the third
414paragraph of section 11).
415
416 However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your
417license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a)
418provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and
419finally terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright
420holder fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means
421prior to 60 days after the cessation.
422
423 Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is
424reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the
425violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you have
426received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that
427copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after
428your receipt of the notice.
429
430 Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the
431licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under
432this License. If your rights have been terminated and not permanently
433reinstated, you do not qualify to receive new licenses for the same
434material under section 10.
435
436 9. Acceptance Not Required for Having Copies.
437
438 You are not required to accept this License in order to receive or
439run a copy of the Program. Ancillary propagation of a covered work
440occurring solely as a consequence of using peer-to-peer transmission
441to receive a copy likewise does not require acceptance. However,
442nothing other than this License grants you permission to propagate or
443modify any covered work. These actions infringe copyright if you do
444not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or propagating a
445covered work, you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so.
446
447 10. Automatic Licensing of Downstream Recipients.
448
449 Each time you convey a covered work, the recipient automatically
450receives a license from the original licensors, to run, modify and
451propagate that work, subject to this License. You are not responsible
452for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License.
453
454 An "entity transaction" is a transaction transferring control of an
455organization, or substantially all assets of one, or subdividing an
456organization, or merging organizations. If propagation of a covered
457work results from an entity transaction, each party to that
458transaction who receives a copy of the work also receives whatever
459licenses to the work the party's predecessor in interest had or could
460give under the previous paragraph, plus a right to possession of the
461Corresponding Source of the work from the predecessor in interest, if
462the predecessor has it or can get it with reasonable efforts.
463
464 You may not impose any further restrictions on the exercise of the
465rights granted or affirmed under this License. For example, you may
466not impose a license fee, royalty, or other charge for exercise of
467rights granted under this License, and you may not initiate litigation
468(including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that
469any patent claim is infringed by making, using, selling, offering for
470sale, or importing the Program or any portion of it.
471
472 11. Patents.
473
474 A "contributor" is a copyright holder who authorizes use under this
475License of the Program or a work on which the Program is based. The
476work thus licensed is called the contributor's "contributor version".
477
478 A contributor's "essential patent claims" are all patent claims
479owned or controlled by the contributor, whether already acquired or
480hereafter acquired, that would be infringed by some manner, permitted
481by this License, of making, using, or selling its contributor version,
482but do not include claims that would be infringed only as a
483consequence of further modification of the contributor version. For
484purposes of this definition, "control" includes the right to grant
485patent sublicenses in a manner consistent with the requirements of
16808258 kevin1996-02-04 20:35:04 +0000486this License.
487
f711708c jay2007-07-02 08:25:42 +0000488 Each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free
489patent license under the contributor's essential patent claims, to
490make, use, sell, offer for sale, import and otherwise run, modify and
491propagate the contents of its contributor version.
492
493 In the following three paragraphs, a "patent license" is any express
494agreement or commitment, however denominated, not to enforce a patent
495(such as an express permission to practice a patent or covenant not to
496sue for patent infringement). To "grant" such a patent license to a
497party means to make such an agreement or commitment not to enforce a
498patent against the party.
499
500 If you convey a covered work, knowingly relying on a patent license,
501and the Corresponding Source of the work is not available for anyone
502to copy, free of charge and under the terms of this License, through a
503publicly available network server or other readily accessible means,
504then you must either (1) cause the Corresponding Source to be so
505available, or (2) arrange to deprive yourself of the benefit of the
506patent license for this particular work, or (3) arrange, in a manner
507consistent with the requirements of this License, to extend the patent
508license to downstream recipients. "Knowingly relying" means you have
509actual knowledge that, but for the patent license, your conveying the
510covered work in a country, or your recipient's use of the covered work
511in a country, would infringe one or more identifiable patents in that
512country that you have reason to believe are valid.
513
514 If, pursuant to or in connection with a single transaction or
515arrangement, you convey, or propagate by procuring conveyance of, a
516covered work, and grant a patent license to some of the parties
517receiving the covered work authorizing them to use, propagate, modify
518or convey a specific copy of the covered work, then the patent license
519you grant is automatically extended to all recipients of the covered
520work and works based on it.
521
522 A patent license is "discriminatory" if it does not include within
523the scope of its coverage, prohibits the exercise of, or is
524conditioned on the non-exercise of one or more of the rights that are
525specifically granted under this License. You may not convey a covered
526work if you are a party to an arrangement with a third party that is
527in the business of distributing software, under which you make payment
528to the third party based on the extent of your activity of conveying
529the work, and under which the third party grants, to any of the
530parties who would receive the covered work from you, a discriminatory
531patent license (a) in connection with copies of the covered work
532conveyed by you (or copies made from those copies), or (b) primarily
533for and in connection with specific products or compilations that
534contain the covered work, unless you entered into that arrangement,
535or that patent license was granted, prior to 28 March 2007.
536
537 Nothing in this License shall be construed as excluding or limiting
538any implied license or other defenses to infringement that may
539otherwise be available to you under applicable patent law.
540
541 12. No Surrender of Others' Freedom.
542
543 If conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
16808258 kevin1996-02-04 20:35:04 +0000544otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
f711708c jay2007-07-02 08:25:42 +0000545excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot convey a
546covered work so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
547License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may
548not convey it at all. For example, if you agree to terms that obligate you
549to collect a royalty for further conveying from those to whom you convey
550the Program, the only way you could satisfy both those terms and this
551License would be to refrain entirely from conveying the Program.
552
553 13. Use with the GNU Affero General Public License.
554
555 Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, you have
556permission to link or combine any covered work with a work licensed
557under version 3 of the GNU Affero General Public License into a single
558combined work, and to convey the resulting work. The terms of this
559License will continue to apply to the part which is the covered work,
560but the special requirements of the GNU Affero General Public License,
561section 13, concerning interaction through a network will apply to the
562combination as such.
563
564 14. Revised Versions of this License.
565
566 The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of
567the GNU General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will
16808258 kevin1996-02-04 20:35:04 +0000568be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
569address new problems or concerns.
570
f711708c jay2007-07-02 08:25:42 +0000571 Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the
572Program specifies that a certain numbered version of the GNU General
573Public License "or any later version" applies to it, you have the
574option of following the terms and conditions either of that numbered
575version or of any later version published by the Free Software
576Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of the
577GNU General Public License, you may choose any version ever published
578by the Free Software Foundation.
579
580 If the Program specifies that a proxy can decide which future
581versions of the GNU General Public License can be used, that proxy's
582public statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you
583to choose that version for the Program.
584
585 Later license versions may give you additional or different
586permissions. However, no additional obligations are imposed on any
587author or copyright holder as a result of your choosing to follow a
588later version.
589
590 15. Disclaimer of Warranty.
591
592 THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY
593APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT
594HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY
595OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO,
596THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
597PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM
598IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF
599ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
600
601 16. Limitation of Liability.
602
603 IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
604WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MODIFIES AND/OR CONVEYS
605THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY
606GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE
607USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF
608DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD
609PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS),
610EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF
611SUCH DAMAGES.
612
613 17. Interpretation of Sections 15 and 16.
614
615 If the disclaimer of warranty and limitation of liability provided
616above cannot be given local legal effect according to their terms,
617reviewing courts shall apply local law that most closely approximates
618an absolute waiver of all civil liability in connection with the
619Program, unless a warranty or assumption of liability accompanies a
620copy of the Program in return for a fee.

82010e31 kevind2000-01-18 08:53:24 +0000624 How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
16808258 kevin1996-02-04 20:35:04 +0000625
626 If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
627possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
628free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
629
630 To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest
631to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
f711708c jay2007-07-02 08:25:42 +0000632state the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
16808258 kevin1996-02-04 20:35:04 +0000633the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.

648 You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
f711708c jay2007-07-02 08:25:42 +0000649 along with this program. If not, see <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>.
16808258 kevin1996-02-04 20:35:04 +0000650
651Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
652
f711708c jay2007-07-02 08:25:42 +0000653 If the program does terminal interaction, make it output a short
654notice like this when it starts in an interactive mode:
16808258 kevin1996-02-04 20:35:04 +0000655
f711708c jay2007-07-02 08:25:42 +0000656 <program> Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>
657 This program comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
16808258 kevin1996-02-04 20:35:04 +0000658 This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
659 under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
660
661The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
f711708c jay2007-07-02 08:25:42 +0000662parts of the General Public License. Of course, your program's commands
663might be different; for a GUI interface, you would use an "about box".
16808258 kevin1996-02-04 20:35:04 +0000664
f711708c jay2007-07-02 08:25:42 +0000665 You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or school,
666if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if necessary.

f711708c jay2007-07-02 08:25:42 +0000670 The GNU General Public License does not permit incorporating your program
671into proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you
672may consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with
673the library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General
674Public License instead of this License. But first, please read
