0002 GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
0003 Version 3, 29 June 2007
0005 Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc. <http://fsf.org/>
0006 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
0007 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
0011 The GNU General Public License is a free, copyleft license for
0012 software and other kinds of works.
0014 The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed
0015 to take away your freedom to share and change the works. By contrast,
0016 the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to
0017 share and change all versions of a program--to make sure it remains free
0018 software for all its users. We, the Free Software Foundation, use the
0019 GNU General Public License for most of our software; it applies also to
0020 any other work released this way by its authors. You can apply it to
0021 your programs, too.
0023 When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
0024 price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
0025 have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
0026 them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you
0027 want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new
0028 free programs, and that you know you can do these things.
0030 To protect your rights, we need to prevent others from denying you
0031 these rights or asking you to surrender the rights. Therefore, you have
0032 certain responsibilities if you distribute copies of the software, or if
0033 you modify it: responsibilities to respect the freedom of others.
0035 For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
0036 gratis or for a fee, you must pass on to the recipients the same
0037 freedoms that you received. You must make sure that they, too, receive
0038 or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they
0039 know their rights.
0041 Developers that use the GNU GPL protect your rights with two steps:
0042 (1) assert copyright on the software, and (2) offer you this License
0043 giving you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify it.
0045 For the developers' and authors' protection, the GPL clearly explains
0046 that there is no warranty for this free software. For both users' and
0047 authors' sake, the GPL requires that modified versions be marked as
0048 changed, so that their problems will not be attributed erroneously to
0049 authors of previous versions.
0051 Some devices are designed to deny users access to install or run
0052 modified versions of the software inside them, although the manufacturer
0053 can do so. This is fundamentally incompatible with the aim of
0054 protecting users' freedom to change the software. The systematic
0055 pattern of such abuse occurs in the area of products for individuals to
0056 use, which is precisely where it is most unacceptable. Therefore, we
0057 have designed this version of the GPL to prohibit the practice for those
0058 products. If such problems arise substantially in other domains, we
0059 stand ready to extend this provision to those domains in future versions
0060 of the GPL, as needed to protect the freedom of users.
0062 Finally, every program is threatened constantly by software patents.
0063 States should not allow patents to restrict development and use of
0064 software on general-purpose computers, but in those that do, we wish to
0065 avoid the special danger that patents applied to a free program could
0066 make it effectively proprietary. To prevent this, the GPL assures that
0067 patents cannot be used to render the program non-free.
0069 The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
0070 modification follow.
0072 TERMS AND CONDITIONS
0074 0. Definitions.
0076 "This License" refers to version 3 of the GNU General Public License.
0078 "Copyright" also means copyright-like laws that apply to other kinds of
0079 works, such as semiconductor masks.
0081 "The Program" refers to any copyrightable work licensed under this
0082 License. Each licensee is addressed as "you". "Licensees" and
0083 "recipients" may be individuals or organizations.
0085 To "modify" a work means to copy from or adapt all or part of the work
0086 in a fashion requiring copyright permission, other than the making of an
0087 exact copy. The resulting work is called a "modified version" of the
0088 earlier work or a work "based on" the earlier work.
0090 A "covered work" means either the unmodified Program or a work based
0091 on the Program.
0093 To "propagate" a work means to do anything with it that, without
0094 permission, would make you directly or secondarily liable for
0095 infringement under applicable copyright law, except executing it on a
0096 computer or modifying a private copy. Propagation includes copying,
0097 distribution (with or without modification), making available to the
0098 public, and in some countries other activities as well.
0100 To "convey" a work means any kind of propagation that enables other
0101 parties to make or receive copies. Mere interaction with a user through
0102 a computer network, with no transfer of a copy, is not conveying.
0104 An interactive user interface displays "Appropriate Legal Notices"
0105 to the extent that it includes a convenient and prominently visible
0106 feature that (1) displays an appropriate copyright notice, and (2)
0107 tells the user that there is no warranty for the work (except to the
0108 extent that warranties are provided), that licensees may convey the
0109 work under this License, and how to view a copy of this License. If
0110 the interface presents a list of user commands or options, such as a
0111 menu, a prominent item in the list meets this criterion.
0113 1. Source Code.
0115 The "source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work
0116 for making modifications to it. "Object code" means any non-source
0117 form of a work.
0119 A "Standard Interface" means an interface that either is an official
0120 standard defined by a recognized standards body, or, in the case of
0121 interfaces specified for a particular programming language, one that
0122 is widely used among developers working in that language.
0124 The "System Libraries" of an executable work include anything, other
0125 than the work as a whole, that (a) is included in the normal form of
0126 packaging a Major Component, but which is not part of that Major
0127 Component, and (b) serves only to enable use of the work with that
0128 Major Component, or to implement a Standard Interface for which an
0129 implementation is available to the public in source code form. A
0130 "Major Component", in this context, means a major essential component
0131 (kernel, window system, and so on) of the specific operating system
0132 (if any) on which the executable work runs, or a compiler used to
0133 produce the work, or an object code interpreter used to run it.
0135 The "Corresponding Source" for a work in object code form means all
0136 the source code needed to generate, install, and (for an executable
0137 work) run the object code and to modify the work, including scripts to
0138 control those activities. However, it does not include the work's
0139 System Libraries, or general-purpose tools or generally available free
0140 programs which are used unmodified in performing those activities but
0141 which are not part of the work. For example, Corresponding Source
0142 includes interface definition files associated with source files for
0143 the work, and the source code for shared libraries and dynamically
0144 linked subprograms that the work is specifically designed to require,
0145 such as by intimate data communication or control flow between those
0146 subprograms and other parts of the work.
0148 The Corresponding Source need not include anything that users
0149 can regenerate automatically from other parts of the Corresponding
0152 The Corresponding Source for a work in source code form is that
0153 same work.
0155 2. Basic Permissions.
0157 All rights granted under this License are granted for the term of
0158 copyright on the Program, and are irrevocable provided the stated
0159 conditions are met. This License explicitly affirms your unlimited
0160 permission to run the unmodified Program. The output from running a
0161 covered work is covered by this License only if the output, given its
0162 content, constitutes a covered work. This License acknowledges your
0163 rights of fair use or other equivalent, as provided by copyright law.
0165 You may make, run and propagate covered works that you do not
0166 convey, without conditions so long as your license otherwise remains
0167 in force. You may convey covered works to others for the sole purpose
0168 of having them make modifications exclusively for you, or provide you
0169 with facilities for running those works, provided that you comply with
0170 the terms of this License in conveying all material for which you do
0171 not control copyright. Those thus making or running the covered works
0172 for you must do so exclusively on your behalf, under your direction
0173 and control, on terms that prohibit them from making any copies of
0174 your copyrighted material outside their relationship with you.
0176 Conveying under any other circumstances is permitted solely under
0177 the conditions stated below. Sublicensing is not allowed; section 10
0178 makes it unnecessary.
0180 3. Protecting Users' Legal Rights From Anti-Circumvention Law.
0182 No covered work shall be deemed part of an effective technological
0183 measure under any applicable law fulfilling obligations under article
0184 11 of the WIPO copyright treaty adopted on 20 December 1996, or
0185 similar laws prohibiting or restricting circumvention of such
0188 When you convey a covered work, you waive any legal power to forbid
0189 circumvention of technological measures to the extent such circumvention
0190 is effected by exercising rights under this License with respect to
0191 the covered work, and you disclaim any intention to limit operation or
0192 modification of the work as a means of enforcing, against the work's
0193 users, your or third parties' legal rights to forbid circumvention of
0194 technological measures.
0196 4. Conveying Verbatim Copies.
0198 You may convey verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you
0199 receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
0200 appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice;
0201 keep intact all notices stating that this License and any
0202 non-permissive terms added in accord with section 7 apply to the code;
0203 keep intact all notices of the absence of any warranty; and give all
0204 recipients a copy of this License along with the Program.
0206 You may charge any price or no price for each copy that you convey,
0207 and you may offer support or warranty protection for a fee.
0209 5. Conveying Modified Source Versions.
0211 You may convey a work based on the Program, or the modifications to
0212 produce it from the Program, in the form of source code under the
0213 terms of section 4, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
0215 a) The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified
0216 it, and giving a relevant date.
0218 b) The work must carry prominent notices stating that it is
0219 released under this License and any conditions added under section
0220 7. This requirement modifies the requirement in section 4 to
0221 "keep intact all notices".
0223 c) You must license the entire work, as a whole, under this
0224 License to anyone who comes into possession of a copy. This
0225 License will therefore apply, along with any applicable section 7
0226 additional terms, to the whole of the work, and all its parts,
0227 regardless of how they are packaged. This License gives no
0228 permission to license the work in any other way, but it does not
0229 invalidate such permission if you have separately received it.
0231 d) If the work has interactive user interfaces, each must display
0232 Appropriate Legal Notices; however, if the Program has interactive
0233 interfaces that do not display Appropriate Legal Notices, your
0234 work need not make them do so.
0236 A compilation of a covered work with other separate and independent
0237 works, which are not by their nature extensions of the covered work,
0238 and which are not combined with it such as to form a larger program,
0239 in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an
0240 "aggregate" if the compilation and its resulting copyright are not
0241 used to limit the access or legal rights of the compilation's users
0242 beyond what the individual works permit. Inclusion of a covered work
0243 in an aggregate does not cause this License to apply to the other
0244 parts of the aggregate.
0246 6. Conveying Non-Source Forms.
0248 You may convey a covered work in object code form under the terms
0249 of sections 4 and 5, provided that you also convey the
0250 machine-readable Corresponding Source under the terms of this License,
0251 in one of these ways:
0253 a) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
0254 (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by the
0255 Corresponding Source fixed on a durable physical medium
0256 customarily used for software interchange.
0258 b) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
0259 (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by a
0260 written offer, valid for at least three years and valid for as
0261 long as you offer spare parts or customer support for that product
0262 model, to give anyone who possesses the object code either (1) a
0263 copy of the Corresponding Source for all the software in the
0264 product that is covered by this License, on a durable physical
0265 medium customarily used for software interchange, for a price no
0266 more than your reasonable cost of physically performing this
0267 conveying of source, or (2) access to copy the
0268 Corresponding Source from a network server at no charge.
0270 c) Convey individual copies of the object code with a copy of the
0271 written offer to provide the Corresponding Source. This
0272 alternative is allowed only occasionally and noncommercially, and
0273 only if you received the object code with such an offer, in accord
0274 with subsection 6b.
0276 d) Convey the object code by offering access from a designated
0277 place (gratis or for a charge), and offer equivalent access to the
0278 Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no
0279 further charge. You need not require recipients to copy the
0280 Corresponding Source along with the object code. If the place to
0281 copy the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source
0282 may be on a different server (operated by you or a third party)
0283 that supports equivalent copying facilities, provided you maintain
0284 clear directions next to the object code saying where to find the
0285 Corresponding Source. Regardless of what server hosts the
0286 Corresponding Source, you remain obligated to ensure that it is
0287 available for as long as needed to satisfy these requirements.
0289 e) Convey the object code using peer-to-peer transmission, provided
0290 you inform other peers where the object code and Corresponding
0291 Source of the work are being offered to the general public at no
0292 charge under subsection 6d.
0294 A separable portion of the object code, whose source code is excluded
0295 from the Corresponding Source as a System Library, need not be
0296 included in conveying the object code work.
0298 A "User Product" is either (1) a "consumer product", which means any
0299 tangible personal property which is normally used for personal, family,
0300 or household purposes, or (2) anything designed or sold for incorporation
0301 into a dwelling. In determining whether a product is a consumer product,
0302 doubtful cases shall be resolved in favor of coverage. For a particular
0303 product received by a particular user, "normally used" refers to a
0304 typical or common use of that class of product, regardless of the status
0305 of the particular user or of the way in which the particular user
0306 actually uses, or expects or is expected to use, the product. A product
0307 is a consumer product regardless of whether the product has substantial
0308 commercial, industrial or non-consumer uses, unless such uses represent
0309 the only significant mode of use of the product.
0311 "Installation Information" for a User Product means any methods,
0312 procedures, authorization keys, or other information required to install
0313 and execute modified versions of a covered work in that User Product from
0314 a modified version of its Corresponding Source. The information must
0315 suffice to ensure that the continued functioning of the modified object
0316 code is in no case prevented or interfered with solely because
0317 modification has been made.
0319 If you convey an object code work under this section in, or with, or
0320 specifically for use in, a User Product, and the conveying occurs as
0321 part of a transaction in which the right of possession and use of the
0322 User Product is transferred to the recipient in perpetuity or for a
0323 fixed term (regardless of how the transaction is characterized), the
0324 Corresponding Source conveyed under this section must be accompanied
0325 by the Installation Information. But this requirement does not apply
0326 if neither you nor any third party retains the ability to install
0327 modified object code on the User Product (for example, the work has
0328 been installed in ROM).
0330 The requirement to provide Installation Information does not include a
0331 requirement to continue to provide support service, warranty, or updates
0332 for a work that has been modified or installed by the recipient, or for
0333 the User Product in which it has been modified or installed. Access to a
0334 network may be denied when the modification itself materially and
0335 adversely affects the operation of the network or violates the rules and
0336 protocols for communication across the network.
0338 Corresponding Source conveyed, and Installation Information provided,
0339 in accord with this section must be in a format that is publicly
0340 documented (and with an implementation available to the public in
0341 source code form), and must require no special password or key for
0342 unpacking, reading or copying.
0344 7. Additional Terms.
0346 "Additional permissions" are terms that supplement the terms of this
0347 License by making exceptions from one or more of its conditions.
0348 Additional permissions that are applicable to the entire Program shall
0349 be treated as though they were included in this License, to the extent
0350 that they are valid under applicable law. If additional permissions
0351 apply only to part of the Program, that part may be used separately
0352 under those permissions, but the entire Program remains governed by
0353 this License without regard to the additional permissions.
0355 When you convey a copy of a covered work, you may at your option
0356 remove any additional permissions from that copy, or from any part of
0357 it. (Additional permissions may be written to require their own
0358 removal in certain cases when you modify the work.) You may place
0359 additional permissions on material, added by you to a covered work,
0360 for which you have or can give appropriate copyright permission.
0362 Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, for material you
0363 add to a covered work, you may (if authorized by the copyright holders of
0364 that material) supplement the terms of this License with terms:
0366 a) Disclaiming warranty or limiting liability differently from the
0367 terms of sections 15 and 16 of this License; or
0369 b) Requiring preservation of specified reasonable legal notices or
0370 author attributions in that material or in the Appropriate Legal
0371 Notices displayed by works containing it; or
0373 c) Prohibiting misrepresentation of the origin of that material, or
0374 requiring that modified versions of such material be marked in
0375 reasonable ways as different from the original version; or
0377 d) Limiting the use for publicity purposes of names of licensors or
0378 authors of the material; or
0380 e) Declining to grant rights under trademark law for use of some
0381 trade names, trademarks, or service marks; or
0383 f) Requiring indemnification of licensors and authors of that
0384 material by anyone who conveys the material (or modified versions of
0385 it) with contractual assumptions of liability to the recipient, for
0386 any liability that these contractual assumptions directly impose on
0387 those licensors and authors.
0389 All other non-permissive additional terms are considered "further
0390 restrictions" within the meaning of section 10. If the Program as you
0391 received it, or any part of it, contains a notice stating that it is
0392 governed by this License along with a term that is a further
0393 restriction, you may remove that term. If a license document contains
0394 a further restriction but permits relicensing or conveying under this
0395 License, you may add to a covered work material governed by the terms
0396 of that license document, provided that the further restriction does
0397 not survive such relicensing or conveying.
0399 If you add terms to a covered work in accord with this section, you
0400 must place, in the relevant source files, a statement of the
0401 additional terms that apply to those files, or a notice indicating
0402 where to find the applicable terms.
0404 Additional terms, permissive or non-permissive, may be stated in the
0405 form of a separately written license, or stated as exceptions;
0406 the above requirements apply either way.
0408 8. Termination.
0410 You may not propagate or modify a covered work except as expressly
0411 provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to propagate or
0412 modify it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under
0413 this License (including any patent licenses granted under the third
0414 paragraph of section 11).
0416 However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your
0417 license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a)
0418 provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and
0419 finally terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright
0420 holder fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means
0421 prior to 60 days after the cessation.
0423 Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is
0424 reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the
0425 violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you have
0426 received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that
0427 copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after
0428 your receipt of the notice.
0430 Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the
0431 licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under
0432 this License. If your rights have been terminated and not permanently
0433 reinstated, you do not qualify to receive new licenses for the same
0434 material under section 10.
0436 9. Acceptance Not Required for Having Copies.
0438 You are not required to accept this License in order to receive or
0439 run a copy of the Program. Ancillary propagation of a covered work
0440 occurring solely as a consequence of using peer-to-peer transmission
0441 to receive a copy likewise does not require acceptance. However,
0442 nothing other than this License grants you permission to propagate or
0443 modify any covered work. These actions infringe copyright if you do
0444 not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or propagating a
0445 covered work, you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so.
0447 10. Automatic Licensing of Downstream Recipients.
0449 Each time you convey a covered work, the recipient automatically
0450 receives a license from the original licensors, to run, modify and
0451 propagate that work, subject to this License. You are not responsible
0452 for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License.
0454 An "entity transaction" is a transaction transferring control of an
0455 organization, or substantially all assets of one, or subdividing an
0456 organization, or merging organizations. If propagation of a covered
0457 work results from an entity transaction, each party to that
0458 transaction who receives a copy of the work also receives whatever
0459 licenses to the work the party's predecessor in interest had or could
0460 give under the previous paragraph, plus a right to possession of the
0461 Corresponding Source of the work from the predecessor in interest, if
0462 the predecessor has it or can get it with reasonable efforts.
0464 You may not impose any further restrictions on the exercise of the
0465 rights granted or affirmed under this License. For example, you may
0466 not impose a license fee, royalty, or other charge for exercise of
0467 rights granted under this License, and you may not initiate litigation
0468 (including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that
0469 any patent claim is infringed by making, using, selling, offering for
0470 sale, or importing the Program or any portion of it.
0472 11. Patents.
0474 A "contributor" is a copyright holder who authorizes use under this
0475 License of the Program or a work on which the Program is based. The
0476 work thus licensed is called the contributor's "contributor version".
0478 A contributor's "essential patent claims" are all patent claims
0479 owned or controlled by the contributor, whether already acquired or
0480 hereafter acquired, that would be infringed by some manner, permitted
0481 by this License, of making, using, or selling its contributor version,
0482 but do not include claims that would be infringed only as a
0483 consequence of further modification of the contributor version. For
0484 purposes of this definition, "control" includes the right to grant
0485 patent sublicenses in a manner consistent with the requirements of
0486 this License.
0488 Each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free
0489 patent license under the contributor's essential patent claims, to
0490 make, use, sell, offer for sale, import and otherwise run, modify and
0491 propagate the contents of its contributor version.
0493 In the following three paragraphs, a "patent license" is any express
0494 agreement or commitment, however denominated, not to enforce a patent
0495 (such as an express permission to practice a patent or covenant not to
0496 sue for patent infringement). To "grant" such a patent license to a
0497 party means to make such an agreement or commitment not to enforce a
0498 patent against the party.
0500 If you convey a covered work, knowingly relying on a patent license,
0501 and the Corresponding Source of the work is not available for anyone
0502 to copy, free of charge and under the terms of this License, through a
0503 publicly available network server or other readily accessible means,
0504 then you must either (1) cause the Corresponding Source to be so
0505 available, or (2) arrange to deprive yourself of the benefit of the
0506 patent license for this particular work, or (3) arrange, in a manner
0507 consistent with the requirements of this License, to extend the patent
0508 license to downstream recipients. "Knowingly relying" means you have
0509 actual knowledge that, but for the patent license, your conveying the
0510 covered work in a country, or your recipient's use of the covered work
0511 in a country, would infringe one or more identifiable patents in that
0512 country that you have reason to believe are valid.
0514 If, pursuant to or in connection with a single transaction or
0515 arrangement, you convey, or propagate by procuring conveyance of, a
0516 covered work, and grant a patent license to some of the parties
0517 receiving the covered work authorizing them to use, propagate, modify
0518 or convey a specific copy of the covered work, then the patent license
0519 you grant is automatically extended to all recipients of the covered
0520 work and works based on it.
0522 A patent license is "discriminatory" if it does not include within
0523 the scope of its coverage, prohibits the exercise of, or is
0524 conditioned on the non-exercise of one or more of the rights that are
0525 specifically granted under this License. You may not convey a covered
0526 work if you are a party to an arrangement with a third party that is
0527 in the business of distributing software, under which you make payment
0528 to the third party based on the extent of your activity of conveying
0529 the work, and under which the third party grants, to any of the
0530 parties who would receive the covered work from you, a discriminatory
0531 patent license (a) in connection with copies of the covered work
0532 conveyed by you (or copies made from those copies), or (b) primarily
0533 for and in connection with specific products or compilations that
0534 contain the covered work, unless you entered into that arrangement,
0535 or that patent license was granted, prior to 28 March 2007.
0537 Nothing in this License shall be construed as excluding or limiting
0538 any implied license or other defenses to infringement that may
0539 otherwise be available to you under applicable patent law.
0541 12. No Surrender of Others' Freedom.
0543 If conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
0544 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
0545 excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot convey a
0546 covered work so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
0547 License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may
0548 not convey it at all. For example, if you agree to terms that obligate you
0549 to collect a royalty for further conveying from those to whom you convey
0550 the Program, the only way you could satisfy both those terms and this
0551 License would be to refrain entirely from conveying the Program.
0553 13. Use with the GNU Affero General Public License.
0555 Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, you have
0556 permission to link or combine any covered work with a work licensed
0557 under version 3 of the GNU Affero General Public License into a single
0558 combined work, and to convey the resulting work. The terms of this
0559 License will continue to apply to the part which is the covered work,
0560 but the special requirements of the GNU Affero General Public License,
0561 section 13, concerning interaction through a network will apply to the
0562 combination as such.
0564 14. Revised Versions of this License.
0566 The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of
0567 the GNU General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will
0568 be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
0569 address new problems or concerns.
0571 Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the
0572 Program specifies that a certain numbered version of the GNU General
0573 Public License "or any later version" applies to it, you have the
0574 option of following the terms and conditions either of that numbered
0575 version or of any later version published by the Free Software
0576 Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of the
0577 GNU General Public License, you may choose any version ever published
0578 by the Free Software Foundation.
0580 If the Program specifies that a proxy can decide which future
0581 versions of the GNU General Public License can be used, that proxy's
0582 public statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you
0583 to choose that version for the Program.
0585 Later license versions may give you additional or different
0586 permissions. However, no additional obligations are imposed on any
0587 author or copyright holder as a result of your choosing to follow a
0588 later version.
0590 15. Disclaimer of Warranty.
0592 THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY
0593 APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT
0594 HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY
0595 OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO,
0596 THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
0597 PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM
0598 IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF
0599 ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
0601 16. Limitation of Liability.
0603 IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
0604 WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MODIFIES AND/OR CONVEYS
0605 THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY
0606 GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE
0607 USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF
0608 DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD
0609 PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS),
0610 EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF
0611 SUCH DAMAGES.
0613 17. Interpretation of Sections 15 and 16.
0615 If the disclaimer of warranty and limitation of liability provided
0616 above cannot be given local legal effect according to their terms,
0617 reviewing courts shall apply local law that most closely approximates
0618 an absolute waiver of all civil liability in connection with the
0619 Program, unless a warranty or assumption of liability accompanies a
0620 copy of the Program in return for a fee.
0622 END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
0624 How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
0626 If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
0627 possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
0628 free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
0630 To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest
0631 to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
0632 state the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
0633 the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
0635 <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
0636 Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>
0638 This program is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify
0639 it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
0640 the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or
0641 (at your option) any later version.
0643 This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
0644 but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
0645 MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the
0646 GNU General Public License for more details.
0648 You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
0649 along with this program. If not, see <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>.
0651 Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
0653 If the program does terminal interaction, make it output a short
0654 notice like this when it starts in an interactive mode:
0656 <program> Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>
0657 This program comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
0658 This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
0659 under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
0661 The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
0662 parts of the General Public License. Of course, your program's commands
0663 might be different; for a GUI interface, you would use an "about box".
0665 You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or school,
0666 if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if necessary.
0667 For more information on this, and how to apply and follow the GNU GPL, see
0670 The GNU General Public License does not permit incorporating your program
0671 into proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you
0672 may consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with
0673 the library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General
0674 Public License instead of this License. But first, please read
