Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
19
of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
20
21
Preamble
22
23
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to
24
share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended
25
to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure
26
the software is free for all its users. This General Public License applies
27
to most of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any other program
28
whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation
29
software is covered by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You
30
can apply it to your programs, too.
31
32
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our
33
General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom
34
to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you
35
wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you
36
can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that
37
you know you can do these things.
38
39
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to
40
deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These
41
restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute
42
copies of the software, or if you modify it.
43
44
For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or
45
for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You
46
must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you
47
must show them these terms so they know their rights.
48
49
We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2)
50
offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute
51
and/or modify the software.
52
53
Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that
54
everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If
55
the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its
56
recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so that any
57
problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors'
58
reputations.
59
60
Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We
61
wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will
62
individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program
63
proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must be
64
licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
65
66
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification
67
follow.
68
69
TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
70
71
0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice
72
placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms
73
of this General Public License. The "Program", below, refers to any such
74
program or work, and a "work based on the Program" means either the Program
75
or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work
76
containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with
77
modifications and/or translated into another language. (Hereinafter,
78
translation is included without limitation in the term "modification".) Each
79
licensee is addressed as "you".
80
81
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered
82
by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running the Program
83
is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its
84
contents constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having been
85
made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the
86
Program does.
87
88
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source code
89
as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
90
appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and
91
disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this
92
License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of
93
the Program a copy of this License along with the Program.
94
95
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you
96
may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
97
98
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it,
99
thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and distribute such
100
modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you
101
also meet all of these conditions:
102
103
* a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating
104
that you changed the files and the date of any change.
105
106
* b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
107
whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any part
108
thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties
109
under the terms of this License.
110
111
* c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when
112
run, you must cause it, when started running for such interactive use
113
in the most ordinary way, to print or display an announcement including
114
an appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there is no warranty
115
(or else, saying that you provide a warranty) and that users may
116
redistribute the program under these conditions, and telling the user
117
how to view a copy of this License. (Exception: if the Program itself
118
is interactive but does not normally print such an announcement, your
119
work based on the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
120
121
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable
122
sections of that work are not derived from the Program, and can be
123
reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then
124
this License, and its terms, do not apply to those sections when you
125
distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same sections
126
as part of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of
127
the whole must be on the terms of this License, whose permissions for other
128
licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part
129
regardless of who wrote it.
130
131
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your
132
rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to exercise
133
the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works
134
based on the Program.
135
136
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program with
137
the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of a storage
138
or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this
139
License.
140
141
3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under
142
Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of Sections 1
143
and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
144
145
* a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source
146
code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2
147
above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
148
149
* b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years,
150
to give any third party, for a charge no more than your cost of
151
physically performing source distribution, a complete machine-readable
152
copy of the corresponding source code, to be distributed under the
153
terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for
154
software interchange; or,
155
156
* c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to
157
distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is allowed only
158
for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in
159
object code or executable form with such an offer, in accord with
160
Subsection b above.)
161
162
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making
163
modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source code means all
164
the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface
165
definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation and
166
installation of the executable. However, as a special exception, the source
167
code distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed (in
168
either source or binary form) with the major components (compiler, kernel,
169
and so on) of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that
170
component itself accompanies the executable.
171
172
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to
173
copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the
174
source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source code,
175
even though third parties are not compelled to copy the source along with
176
the object code.
177
178
4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as
179
expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy,
180
modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will automatically
181
terminate your rights under this License. However, parties who have received
182
copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their licenses
183
terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
184
185
5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed
186
it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or distribute the
187
Program or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law if you
188
do not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or distributing the
189
Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate your acceptance of
190
this License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying,
191
distributing or modifying the Program or works based on it.
192
193
6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
194
Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the original
195
licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these terms
196
and conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions on the
197
recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible
198
for enforcing compliance by third parties to this License.
199
200
7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
201
infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
202
conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
203
otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
204
excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so
205
as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License and any
206
other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not distribute
207
the Program at all. For example, if a patent license would not permit
208
royalty-free redistribution of the Program by all those who receive copies
209
directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy both
210
it and this License would be to refrain entirely from distribution of the
211
Program.
212
213
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any
214
particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply and
215
the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.
216
217
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents
218
or other property right claims or to contest validity of any such claims;
219
this section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free
220
software distribution system, which is implemented by public license
221
practices. Many people have made generous contributions to the wide range of
222
software distributed through that system in reliance on consistent
223
application of that system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or
224
she is willing to distribute software through any other system and a
225
licensee cannot impose that choice.
226
227
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a
228
consequence of the rest of this License.
229
230
8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain
231
countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the original
232
copyright holder who places the Program under this License may add an
233
explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries, so
234
that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded.
235
In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written in the
236
body of this License.
237
238
9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of
239
the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will be
240
similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
241
address new problems or concerns.
242
243
Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
244
specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
245
later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
246
either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
247
Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of
248
this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
249
Foundation.
250
251
10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs
252
whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author to ask for
253
permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free Software
254
Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes make
255
exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals of
256
preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and of
257
promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
258
259
NO WARRANTY
260
261
11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR
262
THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN
263
OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
264
PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
265
OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
266
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO
267
THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM
268
PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR
269
CORRECTION.
270
271
12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
272
WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
273
REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
274
INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
275
OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO
276
LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR
277
THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
278
PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
279
POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
280
281
END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
