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