4 GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
5 Version 3, 29 June 2007
6
7 Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc. <http://fsf.org/>
8 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
9 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
10
11 Preamble
12
13 The GNU General Public License is a free, copyleft license for
14 software and other kinds of works.
15
16 The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed
17 to take away your freedom to share and change the works. By contrast,
18 the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to
19 share and change all versions of a program--to make sure it remains free
20 software for all its users. We, the Free Software Foundation, use the
21 GNU General Public License for most of our software; it applies also to
22 any other work released this way by its authors. You can apply it to
23 your programs, too.
24
25 When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
26 price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
27 have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
28 them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you
29 want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new
30 free programs, and that you know you can do these things.
31
32 To protect your rights, we need to prevent others from denying you
33 these rights or asking you to surrender the rights. Therefore, you have
34 certain responsibilities if you distribute copies of the software, or if
35 you modify it: responsibilities to respect the freedom of others.
36
37 For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
38 gratis or for a fee, you must pass on to the recipients the same
39 freedoms that you received. You must make sure that they, too, receive
40 or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they
41 know their rights.
42
43 Developers that use the GNU GPL protect your rights with two steps:
44 (1) assert copyright on the software, and (2) offer you this License
45 giving you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify it.
46
47 For the developers' and authors' protection, the GPL clearly explains
48 that there is no warranty for this free software. For both users' and
49 authors' sake, the GPL requires that modified versions be marked as
50 changed, so that their problems will not be attributed erroneously to
51 authors of previous versions.
52
53 Some devices are designed to deny users access to install or run
54 modified versions of the software inside them, although the manufacturer
55 can do so. This is fundamentally incompatible with the aim of
56 protecting users' freedom to change the software. The systematic
57 pattern of such abuse occurs in the area of products for individuals to
58 use, which is precisely where it is most unacceptable. Therefore, we
59 have designed this version of the GPL to prohibit the practice for those
60 products. If such problems arise substantially in other domains, we
61 stand ready to extend this provision to those domains in future versions
62 of the GPL, as needed to protect the freedom of users.
63
64 Finally, every program is threatened constantly by software patents.
65 States should not allow patents to restrict development and use of
66 software on general-purpose computers, but in those that do, we wish to
67 avoid the special danger that patents applied to a free program could
68 make it effectively proprietary. To prevent this, the GPL assures that
69 patents cannot be used to render the program non-free.
70
71 The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
72 modification follow.
73
74 TERMS AND CONDITIONS
75
76 0. Definitions.
77
78 "This License" refers to version 3 of the GNU General Public License.
79
80 "Copyright" also means copyright-like laws that apply to other kinds of
81 works, such as semiconductor masks.
82
83 "The Program" refers to any copyrightable work licensed under this
84 License. Each licensee is addressed as "you". "Licensees" and
85 "recipients" may be individuals or organizations.
86
87 To "modify" a work means to copy from or adapt all or part of the work
88 in a fashion requiring copyright permission, other than the making of an
89 exact copy. The resulting work is called a "modified version" of the
90 earlier work or a work "based on" the earlier work.
91
92 A "covered work" means either the unmodified Program or a work based
93 on the Program.
94
95 To "propagate" a work means to do anything with it that, without
96 permission, would make you directly or secondarily liable for
97 infringement under applicable copyright law, except executing it on a
98 computer or modifying a private copy. Propagation includes copying,
99 distribution (with or without modification), making available to the
100 public, and in some countries other activities as well.
101
102 To "convey" a work means any kind of propagation that enables other
103 parties to make or receive copies. Mere interaction with a user through
104 a computer network, with no transfer of a copy, is not conveying.
105
106 An interactive user interface displays "Appropriate Legal Notices"
107 to the extent that it includes a convenient and prominently visible
108 feature that (1) displays an appropriate copyright notice, and (2)
109 tells the user that there is no warranty for the work (except to the
110 extent that warranties are provided), that licensees may convey the
111 work under this License, and how to view a copy of this License. If
112 the interface presents a list of user commands or options, such as a
113 menu, a prominent item in the list meets this criterion.
114
115 1. Source Code.
116
117 The "source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work
118 for making modifications to it. "Object code" means any non-source
119 form of a work.
120
121 A "Standard Interface" means an interface that either is an official
122 standard defined by a recognized standards body, or, in the case of
123 interfaces specified for a particular programming language, one that
124 is widely used among developers working in that language.
125
126 The "System Libraries" of an executable work include anything, other
127 than the work as a whole, that (a) is included in the normal form of
128 packaging a Major Component, but which is not part of that Major
129 Component, and (b) serves only to enable use of the work with that
130 Major Component, or to implement a Standard Interface for which an
131 implementation is available to the public in source code form. A
132 "Major Component", in this context, means a major essential component
133 (kernel, window system, and so on) of the specific operating system
134 (if any) on which the executable work runs, or a compiler used to
135 produce the work, or an object code interpreter used to run it.
136
137 The "Corresponding Source" for a work in object code form means all
138 the source code needed to generate, install, and (for an executable
139 work) run the object code and to modify the work, including scripts to
140 control those activities. However, it does not include the work's
141 System Libraries, or general-purpose tools or generally available free
142 programs which are used unmodified in performing those activities but
143 which are not part of the work. For example, Corresponding Source
144 includes interface definition files associated with source files for
145 the work, and the source code for shared libraries and dynamically
146 linked subprograms that the work is specifically designed to require,
147 such as by intimate data communication or control flow between those
148 subprograms and other parts of the work.
149
150 The Corresponding Source need not include anything that users
151 can regenerate automatically from other parts of the Corresponding
152 Source.
153
154 The Corresponding Source for a work in source code form is that
155 same work.
156
157 2. Basic Permissions.
158
159 All rights granted under this License are granted for the term of
160 copyright on the Program, and are irrevocable provided the stated
161 conditions are met. This License explicitly affirms your unlimited
162 permission to run the unmodified Program. The output from running a
163 covered work is covered by this License only if the output, given its
164 content, constitutes a covered work. This License acknowledges your
165 rights of fair use or other equivalent, as provided by copyright law.
166
167 You may make, run and propagate covered works that you do not
168 convey, without conditions so long as your license otherwise remains
169 in force. You may convey covered works to others for the sole purpose
170 of having them make modifications exclusively for you, or provide you
171 with facilities for running those works, provided that you comply with
172 the terms of this License in conveying all material for which you do
173 not control copyright. Those thus making or running the covered works
174 for you must do so exclusively on your behalf, under your direction
175 and control, on terms that prohibit them from making any copies of
176 your copyrighted material outside their relationship with you.
177
178 Conveying under any other circumstances is permitted solely under
179 the conditions stated below. Sublicensing is not allowed; section 10
180 makes it unnecessary.
181
182 3. Protecting Users' Legal Rights From Anti-Circumvention Law.
183
184 No covered work shall be deemed part of an effective technological
185 measure under any applicable law fulfilling obligations under article
186 11 of the WIPO copyright treaty adopted on 20 December 1996, or
187 similar laws prohibiting or restricting circumvention of such
188 measures.
189
190 When you convey a covered work, you waive any legal power to forbid
191 circumvention of technological measures to the extent such circumvention
192 is effected by exercising rights under this License with respect to
193 the covered work, and you disclaim any intention to limit operation or
194 modification of the work as a means of enforcing, against the work's
195 users, your or third parties' legal rights to forbid circumvention of
196 technological measures.
197
198 4. Conveying Verbatim Copies.
199
200 You may convey verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you
201 receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
202 appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice;
203 keep intact all notices stating that this License and any
204 non-permissive terms added in accord with section 7 apply to the code;
205 keep intact all notices of the absence of any warranty; and give all
206 recipients a copy of this License along with the Program.
207
208 You may charge any price or no price for each copy that you convey,
209 and you may offer support or warranty protection for a fee.
210
211 5. Conveying Modified Source Versions.
212
213 You may convey a work based on the Program, or the modifications to
214 produce it from the Program, in the form of source code under the
215 terms of section 4, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
216
217 a) The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified
218 it, and giving a relevant date.
219
220 b) The work must carry prominent notices stating that it is
221 released under this License and any conditions added under section
222 7. This requirement modifies the requirement in section 4 to
223 "keep intact all notices".
224
225 c) You must license the entire work, as a whole, under this
226 License to anyone who comes into possession of a copy. This
227 License will therefore apply, along with any applicable section 7
228 additional terms, to the whole of the work, and all its parts,
229 regardless of how they are packaged. This License gives no
230 permission to license the work in any other way, but it does not
231 invalidate such permission if you have separately received it.
232
233 d) If the work has interactive user interfaces, each must display
234 Appropriate Legal Notices; however, if the Program has interactive
235 interfaces that do not display Appropriate Legal Notices, your
236 work need not make them do so.
237
238 A compilation of a covered work with other separate and independent
239 works, which are not by their nature extensions of the covered work,
240 and which are not combined with it such as to form a larger program,
241 in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an
242 "aggregate" if the compilation and its resulting copyright are not
243 used to limit the access or legal rights of the compilation's users
244 beyond what the individual works permit. Inclusion of a covered work
245 in an aggregate does not cause this License to apply to the other
246 parts of the aggregate.
247
248 6. Conveying Non-Source Forms.
249
250 You may convey a covered work in object code form under the terms
251 of sections 4 and 5, provided that you also convey the
252 machine-readable Corresponding Source under the terms of this License,
253 in one of these ways:
254
255 a) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
256 (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by the
257 Corresponding Source fixed on a durable physical medium
258 customarily used for software interchange.
259
260 b) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
261 (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by a
262 written offer, valid for at least three years and valid for as
263 long as you offer spare parts or customer support for that product
264 model, to give anyone who possesses the object code either (1) a
265 copy of the Corresponding Source for all the software in the
266 product that is covered by this License, on a durable physical
267 medium customarily used for software interchange, for a price no
268 more than your reasonable cost of physically performing this
269 conveying of source, or (2) access to copy the
270 Corresponding Source from a network server at no charge.
271
272 c) Convey individual copies of the object code with a copy of the
273 written offer to provide the Corresponding Source. This
274 alternative is allowed only occasionally and noncommercially, and
275 only if you received the object code with such an offer, in accord
276 with subsection 6b.
277
278 d) Convey the object code by offering access from a designated
279 place (gratis or for a charge), and offer equivalent access to the
280 Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no
281 further charge. You need not require recipients to copy the
282 Corresponding Source along with the object code. If the place to
283 copy the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source
284 may be on a different server (operated by you or a third party)
285 that supports equivalent copying facilities, provided you maintain
286 clear directions next to the object code saying where to find the
287 Corresponding Source. Regardless of what server hosts the
288 Corresponding Source, you remain obligated to ensure that it is
289 available for as long as needed to satisfy these requirements.
290
291 e) Convey the object code using peer-to-peer transmission, provided
292 you inform other peers where the object code and Corresponding
293 Source of the work are being offered to the general public at no
294 charge under subsection 6d.
295
296 A separable portion of the object code, whose source code is excluded
297 from the Corresponding Source as a System Library, need not be
298 included in conveying the object code work.
299
300 A "User Product" is either (1) a "consumer product", which means any
301 tangible personal property which is normally used for personal, family,
302 or household purposes, or (2) anything designed or sold for incorporation
303 into a dwelling. In determining whether a product is a consumer product,
304 doubtful cases shall be resolved in favor of coverage. For a particular
305 product received by a particular user, "normally used" refers to a
306 typical or common use of that class of product, regardless of the status
307 of the particular user or of the way in which the particular user
308 actually uses, or expects or is expected to use, the product. A product
309 is a consumer product regardless of whether the product has substantial
310 commercial, industrial or non-consumer uses, unless such uses represent
311 the only significant mode of use of the product.
312
313 "Installation Information" for a User Product means any methods,
314 procedures, authorization keys, or other information required to install
315 and execute modified versions of a covered work in that User Product from
316 a modified version of its Corresponding Source. The information must
317 suffice to ensure that the continued functioning of the modified object
318 code is in no case prevented or interfered with solely because
319 modification has been made.
320
321 If you convey an object code work under this section in, or with, or
322 specifically for use in, a User Product, and the conveying occurs as
323 part of a transaction in which the right of possession and use of the
324 User Product is transferred to the recipient in perpetuity or for a
325 fixed term (regardless of how the transaction is characterized), the
326 Corresponding Source conveyed under this section must be accompanied
327 by the Installation Information. But this requirement does not apply
328 if neither you nor any third party retains the ability to install
329 modified object code on the User Product (for example, the work has
330 been installed in ROM).
331
332 The requirement to provide Installation Information does not include a
333 requirement to continue to provide support service, warranty, or updates
334 for a work that has been modified or installed by the recipient, or for
335 the User Product in which it has been modified or installed. Access to a
336 network may be denied when the modification itself materially and
337 adversely affects the operation of the network or violates the rules and
338 protocols for communication across the network.
339
340 Corresponding Source conveyed, and Installation Information provided,
341 in accord with this section must be in a format that is publicly
342 documented (and with an implementation available to the public in
343 source code form), and must require no special password or key for
344 unpacking, reading or copying.
345
346 7. Additional Terms.
347
348 "Additional permissions" are terms that supplement the terms of this
349 License by making exceptions from one or more of its conditions.
350 Additional permissions that are applicable to the entire Program shall
351 be treated as though they were included in this License, to the extent
352 that they are valid under applicable law. If additional permissions
353 apply only to part of the Program, that part may be used separately
354 under those permissions, but the entire Program remains governed by
355 this License without regard to the additional permissions.
356
357 When you convey a copy of a covered work, you may at your option
358 remove any additional permissions from that copy, or from any part of
359 it. (Additional permissions may be written to require their own
360 removal in certain cases when you modify the work.) You may place
361 additional permissions on material, added by you to a covered work,
362 for which you have or can give appropriate copyright permission.
363
364 Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, for material you
365 add to a covered work, you may (if authorized by the copyright holders of
366 that material) supplement the terms of this License with terms:
367
368 a) Disclaiming warranty or limiting liability differently from the
369 terms of sections 15 and 16 of this License; or
370
371 b) Requiring preservation of specified reasonable legal notices or
372 author attributions in that material or in the Appropriate Legal
373 Notices displayed by works containing it; or
374
375 c) Prohibiting misrepresentation of the origin of that material, or
376 requiring that modified versions of such material be marked in
377 reasonable ways as different from the original version; or
378
379 d) Limiting the use for publicity purposes of names of licensors or
380 authors of the material; or
381
382 e) Declining to grant rights under trademark law for use of some
383 trade names, trademarks, or service marks; or
384
385 f) Requiring indemnification of licensors and authors of that
386 material by anyone who conveys the material (or modified versions of
387 it) with contractual assumptions of liability to the recipient, for
388 any liability that these contractual assumptions directly impose on
389 those licensors and authors.
390
391 All other non-permissive additional terms are considered "further
392 restrictions" within the meaning of section 10. If the Program as you
393 received it, or any part of it, contains a notice stating that it is
394 governed by this License along with a term that is a further
395 restriction, you may remove that term. If a license document contains
396 a further restriction but permits relicensing or conveying under this
397 License, you may add to a covered work material governed by the terms
398 of that license document, provided that the further restriction does
399 not survive such relicensing or conveying.
400
401 If you add terms to a covered work in accord with this section, you
402 must place, in the relevant source files, a statement of the
403 additional terms that apply to those files, or a notice indicating
404 where to find the applicable terms.
405
406 Additional terms, permissive or non-permissive, may be stated in the
407 form of a separately written license, or stated as exceptions;
408 the above requirements apply either way.
409
410 8. Termination.
411
412 You may not propagate or modify a covered work except as expressly
413 provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to propagate or
414 modify it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under
415 this License (including any patent licenses granted under the third
416 paragraph of section 11).
417
418 However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your
419 license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a)
420 provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and
421 finally terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright
422 holder fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means
423 prior to 60 days after the cessation.
424
425 Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is
426 reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the
427 violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you have
428 received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that
429 copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after
430 your receipt of the notice.
431
432 Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the
433 licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under
434 this License. If your rights have been terminated and not permanently
435 reinstated, you do not qualify to receive new licenses for the same
436 material under section 10.
437
438 9. Acceptance Not Required for Having Copies.
439
440 You are not required to accept this License in order to receive or
441 run a copy of the Program. Ancillary propagation of a covered work
442 occurring solely as a consequence of using peer-to-peer transmission
443 to receive a copy likewise does not require acceptance. However,
444 nothing other than this License grants you permission to propagate or
445 modify any covered work. These actions infringe copyright if you do
446 not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or propagating a
447 covered work, you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so.
448
449 10. Automatic Licensing of Downstream Recipients.
450
451 Each time you convey a covered work, the recipient automatically
452 receives a license from the original licensors, to run, modify and
453 propagate that work, subject to this License. You are not responsible
454 for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License.
455
456 An "entity transaction" is a transaction transferring control of an
457 organization, or substantially all assets of one, or subdividing an
458 organization, or merging organizations. If propagation of a covered
459 work results from an entity transaction, each party to that
460 transaction who receives a copy of the work also receives whatever
461 licenses to the work the party's predecessor in interest had or could
462 give under the previous paragraph, plus a right to possession of the
463 Corresponding Source of the work from the predecessor in interest, if
464 the predecessor has it or can get it with reasonable efforts.
465
466 You may not impose any further restrictions on the exercise of the
467 rights granted or affirmed under this License. For example, you may
468 not impose a license fee, royalty, or other charge for exercise of
469 rights granted under this License, and you may not initiate litigation
470 (including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that
471 any patent claim is infringed by making, using, selling, offering for
472 sale, or importing the Program or any portion of it.
473
474 11. Patents.
475
476 A "contributor" is a copyright holder who authorizes use under this
477 License of the Program or a work on which the Program is based. The
478 work thus licensed is called the contributor's "contributor version".
479
480 A contributor's "essential patent claims" are all patent claims
481 owned or controlled by the contributor, whether already acquired or
482 hereafter acquired, that would be infringed by some manner, permitted
483 by this License, of making, using, or selling its contributor version,
484 but do not include claims that would be infringed only as a
485 consequence of further modification of the contributor version. For
486 purposes of this definition, "control" includes the right to grant
487 patent sublicenses in a manner consistent with the requirements of
488 this License.
489
490 Each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free
491 patent license under the contributor's essential patent claims, to
492 make, use, sell, offer for sale, import and otherwise run, modify and
493 propagate the contents of its contributor version.
494
495 In the following three paragraphs, a "patent license" is any express
496 agreement or commitment, however denominated, not to enforce a patent
497 (such as an express permission to practice a patent or covenant not to
498 sue for patent infringement). To "grant" such a patent license to a
499 party means to make such an agreement or commitment not to enforce a
500 patent against the party.
501
502 If you convey a covered work, knowingly relying on a patent license,
503 and the Corresponding Source of the work is not available for anyone
504 to copy, free of charge and under the terms of this License, through a
505 publicly available network server or other readily accessible means,
506 then you must either (1) cause the Corresponding Source to be so
507 available, or (2) arrange to deprive yourself of the benefit of the
508 patent license for this particular work, or (3) arrange, in a manner
509 consistent with the requirements of this License, to extend the patent
510 license to downstream recipients. "Knowingly relying" means you have
511 actual knowledge that, but for the patent license, your conveying the
512 covered work in a country, or your recipient's use of the covered work
513 in a country, would infringe one or more identifiable patents in that
514 country that you have reason to believe are valid.
515
516 If, pursuant to or in connection with a single transaction or
517 arrangement, you convey, or propagate by procuring conveyance of, a
518 covered work, and grant a patent license to some of the parties
519 receiving the covered work authorizing them to use, propagate, modify
520 or convey a specific copy of the covered work, then the patent license
521 you grant is automatically extended to all recipients of the covered
522 work and works based on it.
523
524 A patent license is "discriminatory" if it does not include within
525 the scope of its coverage, prohibits the exercise of, or is
526 conditioned on the non-exercise of one or more of the rights that are
527 specifically granted under this License. You may not convey a covered
528 work if you are a party to an arrangement with a third party that is
529 in the business of distributing software, under which you make payment
530 to the third party based on the extent of your activity of conveying
531 the work, and under which the third party grants, to any of the
532 parties who would receive the covered work from you, a discriminatory
533 patent license (a) in connection with copies of the covered work
534 conveyed by you (or copies made from those copies), or (b) primarily
535 for and in connection with specific products or compilations that
536 contain the covered work, unless you entered into that arrangement,
537 or that patent license was granted, prior to 28 March 2007.
538
539 Nothing in this License shall be construed as excluding or limiting
540 any implied license or other defenses to infringement that may
541 otherwise be available to you under applicable patent law.
542
543 12. No Surrender of Others' Freedom.
544
545 If conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
546 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
547 excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot convey a
548 covered work so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
549 License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may
550 not convey it at all. For example, if you agree to terms that obligate you
551 to collect a royalty for further conveying from those to whom you convey
552 the Program, the only way you could satisfy both those terms and this
553 License would be to refrain entirely from conveying the Program.
554
555 13. Use with the GNU Affero General Public License.
556
557 Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, you have
558 permission to link or combine any covered work with a work licensed
559 under version 3 of the GNU Affero General Public License into a single
560 combined work, and to convey the resulting work. The terms of this
561 License will continue to apply to the part which is the covered work,
562 but the special requirements of the GNU Affero General Public License,
563 section 13, concerning interaction through a network will apply to the
564 combination as such.
565
566 14. Revised Versions of this License.
567
568 The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of
569 the GNU General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will
570 be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
571 address new problems or concerns.
572
573 Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the
574 Program specifies that a certain numbered version of the GNU General
575 Public License "or any later version" applies to it, you have the
576 option of following the terms and conditions either of that numbered
577 version or of any later version published by the Free Software
578 Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of the
579 GNU General Public License, you may choose any version ever published
580 by the Free Software Foundation.
581
582 If the Program specifies that a proxy can decide which future
583 versions of the GNU General Public License can be used, that proxy's
584 public statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you
585 to choose that version for the Program.
586
587 Later license versions may give you additional or different
588 permissions. However, no additional obligations are imposed on any
589 author or copyright holder as a result of your choosing to follow a
590 later version.
591
592 15. Disclaimer of Warranty.
593
594 THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY
595 APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT
596 HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY
597 OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO,
598 THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
599 PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM
600 IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF
601 ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
602
603 16. Limitation of Liability.
604
605 IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
606 WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MODIFIES AND/OR CONVEYS
607 THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY
608 GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE
609 USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF
610 DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD
611 PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS),
612 EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF
613 SUCH DAMAGES.
614
615 17. Interpretation of Sections 15 and 16.
616
617 If the disclaimer of warranty and limitation of liability provided
618 above cannot be given local legal effect according to their terms,
619 reviewing courts shall apply local law that most closely approximates
620 an absolute waiver of all civil liability in connection with the
621 Program, unless a warranty or assumption of liability accompanies a
622 copy of the Program in return for a fee.
623
624 END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
625
626 How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
627
628 If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
629 possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
630 free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
631
632 To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest
633 to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
634 state the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
635 the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
636
637 <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
638 Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>
639
640 This program is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify
641 it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
642 the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or
643 (at your option) any later version.
644
645 This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
646 but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
647 MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the
648 GNU General Public License for more details.
649
650 You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
651 along with this program. If not, see <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>.
652
653 Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
654
655 If the program does terminal interaction, make it output a short
656 notice like this when it starts in an interactive mode:
657
658 <program> Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>
659 This program comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
660 This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
661 under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
662
663 The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
664 parts of the General Public License. Of course, your program's commands
665 might be different; for a GUI interface, you would use an "about box".
666
667 You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or school,
668 if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if necessary.
669 For more information on this, and how to apply and follow the GNU GPL, see
670 <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>.
671
672 The GNU General Public License does not permit incorporating your program
673 into proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you
674 may consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with
675 the library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General
676 Public License instead of this License. But first, please read
677 <http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/why-not-lgpl.html>.
