As a special service "Fossies" has tried to format the requested text file into HTML format (style: standard) with prefixed line numbers. Alternatively you can here view or download the uninterpreted source code file.

    1 NSS is available under the Mozilla Public License, version 2, a copy of which
    2 is below.

    4 Note on GPL Compatibility
    5 -------------------------
    6 
    7 The MPL 2, section 3.3, permits you to combine NSS with code under the GNU
    8 General Public License (GPL) version 2, or any later version of that
    9 license, to make a Larger Work, and distribute the result under the GPL.
   10 The only condition is that you must also make NSS, and any changes you
   11 have made to it, available to recipients under the terms of the MPL 2 also.
   12 
   13 Anyone who receives the combined code from you does not have to continue
   14 to dual licence in this way, and may, if they wish, distribute under the
   15 terms of either of the two licences - either the MPL alone or the GPL
   16 alone. However, we discourage people from distributing copies of NSS under
   17 the GPL alone, because it means that any improvements they make cannot be
   18 reincorporated into the main version of NSS. There is never a need to do
   19 this for license compatibility reasons.
   20 
   21 Note on LGPL Compatibility
   22 --------------------------
   23 
   24 The above also applies to combining MPLed code in a single library with
   25 code under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL) version 2.1, or
   26 any later version of that license. If the LGPLed code and the MPLed code
   27 are not in the same library, then the copyleft coverage of the two
   28 licences does not overlap, so no issues arise.

  122 non-exclusive license:
  123 
  124 (a) under intellectual property rights (other than patent or trademark)
  125     Licensable by such Contributor to use, reproduce, make available,

  133 
  134 2.2. Effective Date
  135 
  136 The licenses granted in Section 2.1 with respect to any Contribution
  137 become effective for each Contribution on the date the Contributor first
  138 distributes such Contribution.
  139 
  140 2.3. Limitations on Grant Scope
  141 
  142 The licenses granted in this Section 2 are the only rights granted under
  143 this License. No additional rights or licenses will be implied from the
  144 distribution or licensing of Covered Software under this License.
  145 Notwithstanding Section 2.1(b) above, no patent license is granted by a
  146 Contributor:
  147 
  148 (a) for any code that a Contributor has removed from Covered Software;
  149     or

  152     modifications of Covered Software, or (ii) the combination of its

  154     Version); or
  155 
  156 (c) under Patent Claims infringed by Covered Software in the absence of
  157     its Contributions.
  158 
  159 This License does not grant any rights in the trademarks, service marks,
  160 or logos of any Contributor (except as may be necessary to comply with
  161 the notice requirements in Section 3.4).
  162 
  163 2.4. Subsequent Licenses
  164 
  165 No Contributor makes additional grants as a result of Your choice to
  166 distribute the Covered Software under a subsequent version of this
  167 License (see Section 10.2) or under the terms of a Secondary License (if
  168 permitted under the terms of Section 3.3).
  169 
  170 2.5. Representation
  171 
  172 Each Contributor represents that the Contributor believes its
  173 Contributions are its original creation(s) or it has sufficient rights
  174 to grant the rights to its Contributions conveyed by this License.
  175 
  176 2.6. Fair Use
  177 
  178 This License is not intended to limit any rights You have under
  179 applicable copyright doctrines of fair use, fair dealing, or other
  180 equivalents.
  181 
  182 2.7. Conditions
  183 
  184 Sections 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, and 3.4 are conditions of the licenses granted
  185 in Section 2.1.
  186 
  187 3. Responsibilities
  188 -------------------
  189 
  190 3.1. Distribution of Source Form
  191 
  192 All distribution of Covered Software in Source Code Form, including any
  193 Modifications that You create or to which You contribute, must be under
  194 the terms of this License. You must inform recipients that the Source
  195 Code Form of the Covered Software is governed by the terms of this
  196 License, and how they can obtain a copy of this License. You may not
  197 attempt to alter or restrict the recipients' rights in the Source Code
  198 Form.
  199 
  200 3.2. Distribution of Executable Form
  201 
  202 If You distribute Covered Software in Executable Form then:
  203 
  204 (a) such Covered Software must also be made available in Source Code
  205     Form, as described in Section 3.1, and You must inform recipients of
  206     the Executable Form how they can obtain a copy of such Source Code
  207     Form by reasonable means in a timely manner, at a charge no more
  208     than the cost of distribution to the recipient; and
  209 
  210 (b) You may distribute such Executable Form under the terms of this
  211     License, or sublicense it under different terms, provided that the
  212     license for the Executable Form does not attempt to limit or alter
  213     the recipients' rights in the Source Code Form under this License.
  214 
  215 3.3. Distribution of a Larger Work
  216 
  217 You may create and distribute a Larger Work under terms of Your choice,
  218 provided that You also comply with the requirements of this License for
  219 the Covered Software. If the Larger Work is a combination of Covered
  220 Software with a work governed by one or more Secondary Licenses, and the
  221 Covered Software is not Incompatible With Secondary Licenses, this
  222 License permits You to additionally distribute such Covered Software
  223 under the terms of such Secondary License(s), so that the recipient of
  224 the Larger Work may, at their option, further distribute the Covered
  225 Software under the terms of either this License or such Secondary
  226 License(s).
  227 
  228 3.4. Notices
  229 
  230 You may not remove or alter the substance of any license notices
  231 (including copyright notices, patent notices, disclaimers of warranty,
  232 or limitations of liability) contained within the Source Code Form of
  233 the Covered Software, except that You may alter any license notices to
  234 the extent required to remedy known factual inaccuracies.
  235 
  236 3.5. Application of Additional Terms
  237 
  238 You may choose to offer, and to charge a fee for, warranty, support,
  239 indemnity or liability obligations to one or more recipients of Covered
  240 Software. However, You may do so only on Your own behalf, and not on
  241 behalf of any Contributor. You must make it absolutely clear that any
  242 such warranty, support, indemnity, or liability obligation is offered by
  243 You alone, and You hereby agree to indemnify every Contributor for any
  244 liability incurred by such Contributor as a result of warranty, support,
  245 indemnity or liability terms You offer. You may include additional
  246 disclaimers of warranty and limitations of liability specific to any
  247 jurisdiction.
  248 
  249 4. Inability to Comply Due to Statute or Regulation
  250 ---------------------------------------------------
  251 
  252 If it is impossible for You to comply with any of the terms of this
  253 License with respect to some or all of the Covered Software due to
  254 statute, judicial order, or regulation then You must: (a) comply with
  255 the terms of this License to the maximum extent possible; and (b)
  256 describe the limitations and the code they affect. Such description must
  257 be placed in a text file included with all distributions of the Covered
  258 Software under this License. Except to the extent prohibited by statute
  259 or regulation, such description must be sufficiently detailed for a
  260 recipient of ordinary skill to be able to understand it.
  261 
  262 5. Termination
  263 --------------
  264 
  265 5.1. The rights granted under this License will terminate automatically
  266 if You fail to comply with any of its terms. However, if You become
  267 compliant, then the rights granted under this License from a particular
  268 Contributor are reinstated (a) provisionally, unless and until such
  269 Contributor explicitly and finally terminates Your grants, and (b) on an
  270 ongoing basis, if such Contributor fails to notify You of the
  271 non-compliance by some reasonable means prior to 60 days after You have
  272 come back into compliance. Moreover, Your grants from a particular
  273 Contributor are reinstated on an ongoing basis if such Contributor
  274 notifies You of the non-compliance by some reasonable means, this is the
  275 first time You have received notice of non-compliance with this License
  276 from such Contributor, and You become compliant prior to 30 days after
  277 Your receipt of the notice.
  278 
  279 5.2. If You initiate litigation against any entity by asserting a patent
  280 infringement claim (excluding declaratory judgment actions,
  281 counter-claims, and cross-claims) alleging that a Contributor Version
  282 directly or indirectly infringes any patent, then the rights granted to
  283 You by any and all Contributors for the Covered Software under Section
  284 2.1 of this License shall terminate.
  285 
  286 5.3. In the event of termination under Sections 5.1 or 5.2 above, all
  287 end user license agreements (excluding distributors and resellers) which
  288 have been validly granted by You or Your distributors under this License
  289 prior to termination shall survive termination.

  298 *  statutory, including, without limitation, warranties that the       *
  299 *  Covered Software is free of defects, merchantable, fit for a        *
  300 *  particular purpose or non-infringing. The entire risk as to the     *
  301 *  quality and performance of the Covered Software is with You.        *
  302 *  Should any Covered Software prove defective in any respect, You     *
  303 *  (not any Contributor) assume the cost of any necessary servicing,   *
  304 *  repair, or correction. This disclaimer of warranty constitutes an   *
  305 *  essential part of this License. No use of any Covered Software is   *
  306 *  authorized under this License except under this disclaimer.         *
  307 *                                                                      *

  318 *  permitted above, be liable to You for any direct, indirect,         *
  319 *  special, incidental, or consequential damages of any character      *
  320 *  including, without limitation, damages for lost profits, loss of    *

  332 
  333 8. Litigation
  334 -------------
  335 
  336 Any litigation relating to this License may be brought only in the
  337 courts of a jurisdiction where the defendant maintains its principal
  338 place of business and such litigation shall be governed by laws of that
  339 jurisdiction, without reference to its conflict-of-law provisions.
  340 Nothing in this Section shall prevent a party's ability to bring
  341 cross-claims or counter-claims.
  342 
  343 9. Miscellaneous
  344 ----------------
  345 
  346 This License represents the complete agreement concerning the subject
  347 matter hereof. If any provision of this License is held to be
  348 unenforceable, such provision shall be reformed only to the extent
  349 necessary to make it enforceable. Any law or regulation which provides
  350 that the language of a contract shall be construed against the drafter
  351 shall not be used to construe this License against a Contributor.
  352 
  353 10. Versions of the License
  354 ---------------------------
  355 
  356 10.1. New Versions
  357 
  358 Mozilla Foundation is the license steward. Except as provided in Section
  359 10.3, no one other than the license steward has the right to modify or
  360 publish new versions of this License. Each version will be given a
  361 distinguishing version number.
  362 
  363 10.2. Effect of New Versions
  364 
  365 You may distribute the Covered Software under the terms of the version
  366 of the License under which You originally received the Covered Software,
  367 or under the terms of any subsequent version published by the license
  368 steward.
  369 
  370 10.3. Modified Versions
  371 
  372 If you create software not governed by this License, and you want to
  373 create a new license for such software, you may create and use a
  374 modified version of this License if you rename the license and remove
  375 any references to the name of the license steward (except to note that
  376 such modified license differs from this License).
  377 
  378 10.4. Distributing Source Code Form that is Incompatible With Secondary
  379 Licenses
  380 
  381 If You choose to distribute Source Code Form that is Incompatible With
  382 Secondary Licenses under the terms of this version of the License, the
  383 notice described in Exhibit B of this License must be attached.
  384

  391 
  392 If it is not possible or desirable to put the notice in a particular

  394 file in a relevant directory) where a recipient would be likely to look
  395 for such a notice.
