    1 <h3>The GNU General Public License (GPL)</h3>
    2 <b>Version 2, June 1991</b>
    3 <p> Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.<br>
    4 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA  02111-1307  USA</p>
    5 <p> Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies<br>
    6  of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.</p>
    7 <p><b>Preamble</b></p>
    8 <p>The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
    9 freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
   10 License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
   11 software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This
   12 General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
   13 Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
   14 using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
   15 the GNU Library General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to
   16 your programs, too.</p>
   17 <p>When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
   18 price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
   19 have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
   20 this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
   21 if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
   22 in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.</p>
   23 <p>To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
   24 anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
   25 These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
   26 distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.</p>
   27 <p>For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
   28 gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
   29 you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
   30 source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their
   31 rights.</p>
   32 <p>We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
   33 (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
   34 distribute and/or modify the software.</p>
   35 <p>Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
   36 that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
   37 software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
   38 want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
   39 that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
   40 authors' reputations.</p>
   41 <p>Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
   42 patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
   43 program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
   44 program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
   45 patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.</p>
   46 <p>The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
   47 modification follow.</p>
   48 <p><b>TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION</b></p>
   49 <p><b>0</b>. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
   50 a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
   51 under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below,
   52 refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
   53 means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
   54 that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
   55 either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
   56 language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
   57 the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you".</p>
   58 <p>Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
   59 covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
   60 running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
   61 is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
   62 Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
   63 Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.</p>
   64 <p><b>1</b>. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
   65 source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
   66 conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
   67 copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
   68 notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
   69 and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
   70 along with the Program.</p>
   71 <p>You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
   72 you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.</p>
   73 <p><b>2</b>. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
   74 of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
   75 distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
   76 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:</p>
   77 <p>a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
   78 stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.</p>
   79 <p>b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
   80 whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
   81 part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
   82 parties under the terms of this License.</p>
   83 <p>c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
   84 when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
   85 interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
   86 announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
   87 notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
   88 a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
   89 these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
   90 License.  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
   91 does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
   92 the Program is not required to print an announcement.)</p>
   93 <p>These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
   94 identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
   95 and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
   96 themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
   97 sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
   98 distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
   99 on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
  100 this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
  101 entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.</p>
  102 <p>Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
  103 your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
  104 exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
  105 collective works based on the Program.</p>
  106 <p>In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
  107 with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
  108 a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
  109 the scope of this License.</p>
  110 <p><b>3</b>. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
  111 under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
  112 Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:</p>
  113 <p>a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
  114 source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
  115 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,</p>
  116 <p> b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
  117 years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
  118 cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
  119 machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
  120 distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
  121 customarily used for software interchange; or,</p>
  122 <p>c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
  123 to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is
  124 allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
  125 received the program in object code or executable form with such
  126 an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)</p></blockquote>
  127 <p>The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
  128 making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source
  129 code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
  130 associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
  131 control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a
  132 special exception, the source code distributed need not include
  133 anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
  134 form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
  135 operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
  136 itself accompanies the executable.</p>
  137 <p>If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
  138 access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
  139 access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
  140 distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
  141 compelled to copy the source along with the object code.</p>
  142 <p><b>4</b>. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
  143 except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt
  144 otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
  145 void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
  146 However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
  147 this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
  148 parties remain in full compliance.</p>
  149 <p> <b>5</b>. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
  150 signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
  151 distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are
  152 prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
  153 modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
  154 Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
  155 all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
  156 the Program or works based on it.</p>
  157 <p><b>6</b>. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
  158 Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
  159 original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
  160 these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
  161 restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
  162 You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
  163 this License.</p>
  164 <p><b>7</b>. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
  165 infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
  166 conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
  167 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
  168 excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
  169 distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
  170 License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
  171 may not distribute the Program at all.  For example, if a patent
  172 license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
  173 all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
  174 the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
  175 refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.</p>
  176 <p>If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
  177 any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
  178 apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
  179 circumstances.</p>
  180 <p>It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
  181 patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
  182 such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
  183 integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
  184 implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
  185 generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
  186 through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
  187 system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
  188 to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
  189 impose that choice.</p>
  190 <p>This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
  191 be a consequence of the rest of this License.</p>
  192 <p><b>8</b>. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
  193 certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
  194 original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
  195 may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
  196 those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
  197 countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates
  198 the limitation as if written in the body of this License.</p>
  199 <p><b>9</b>. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
  200 of the General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
  201 be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
  202 address new problems or concerns.</p>
  203 <p>Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
  204 specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
  205 later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
  206 either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
  207 Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of
  208 this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
  209 Foundation.</p>
  210 <p><b>10</b>. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
  211 programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
  212 to ask for permission.  For software which is copyrighted by the Free
  213 Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
  214 make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be guided by the two goals
  215 of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
  216 of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.</p>
  217 <p><b>NO WARRANTY</b></p>
  218 <p><b>11</b>. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
  219 FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN
  220 OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
  221 PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
  222 OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
  223 MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS
  224 TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE
  225 PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
  226 REPAIR OR CORRECTION.</p>
  227 <p><b>12</b>. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
  228 WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
  229 REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
  230 INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
  231 OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
  232 TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
  233 YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
  234 PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
  235 POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.</p>
  236 <p>END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS</p>
