5     CREATIVE COMMONS CORPORATION IS NOT A LAW FIRM AND DOES NOT PROVIDE LEGAL
6     SERVICES. DISTRIBUTION OF THIS DOCUMENT DOES NOT CREATE AN ATTORNEY-CLIENT
7     RELATIONSHIP. CREATIVE COMMONS PROVIDES THIS INFORMATION ON AN "AS-IS" BASIS.
8     CREATIVE COMMONS MAKES NO WARRANTIES REGARDING THE USE OF THIS DOCUMENT OR THE
9     INFORMATION OR WORKS PROVIDED HEREUNDER, AND DISCLAIMS LIABILITY FOR DAMAGES
10     RESULTING FROM THE USE OF THIS DOCUMENT OR THE INFORMATION OR WORKS PROVIDED

14     Statement of Purpose
15    
16     The laws of most jurisdictions throughout the world automatically
17     confer exclusive Copyright and Related Rights (defined below) upon
18     the creator and subsequent owner(s) (each and all, an "owner") of
19     an original work of authorship and/or a database (each, a "Work").
20    
21     Certain owners wish to permanently relinquish those rights to a
22     Work for the purpose of contributing to a commons of creative,
23     cultural and scientific works ("Commons") that the public can
24     reliably and without fear of later claims of infringement build
25     upon, modify, incorporate in other works, reuse and redistribute
26     as freely as possible in any form whatsoever and for any purposes,
27     including without limitation commercial purposes. These owners may
28     contribute to the Commons to promote the ideal of a free culture
29     and the further production of creative, cultural and scientific
30     works, or to gain reputation or greater distribution for their
31     Work in part through the use and efforts of others.
32    
33     For these and/or other purposes and motivations, and without any
34     expectation of additional consideration or compensation, the
35     person associating CC0 with a Work (the "Affirmer"), to the extent
36     that he or she is an owner of Copyright and Related Rights in the
37     Work, voluntarily elects to apply CC0 to the Work and publicly
38     distribute the Work under its terms, with knowledge of his or her
39     Copyright and Related Rights in the Work and the meaning and
40     intended legal effect of CC0 on those rights.
41    
42     1. Copyright and Related Rights.
43     A Work made available under CC0 may be protected by copyright
44     and related or neighboring rights ("Copyright and Related
45     Rights"). Copyright and Related Rights include, but are not
46     limited to, the following:
47    
48     i. the right to reproduce, adapt, distribute, perform,
49     display, communicate, and translate a Work;
50     ii. moral rights retained by the original author(s) and/or
51     performer(s);
52     iii. publicity and privacy rights pertaining to a person's
53     image or likeness depicted in a Work;
54     iv. rights protecting against unfair competition in regards to
55     a Work, subject to the limitations in paragraph 4(a),
56     below;
57     v. rights protecting the extraction, dissemination, use and
58     reuse of data in a Work;
59     vi. database rights (such as those arising under Directive
60     96/9/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of
61     11 March 1996 on the legal protection of databases, and
62     under any national implementation thereof, including any
63     amended or successor version of such directive); and
64     vii. other similar, equivalent or corresponding rights
65     throughout the world based on applicable law or treaty,
66     and any national implementations thereof.
67    
68     2. Waiver.
69     To the greatest extent permitted by, but not in contravention
70     of, applicable law, Affirmer hereby overtly, fully,
71     permanently, irrevocably and unconditionally waives, abandons,
72     and surrenders all of Affirmer's Copyright and Related Rights
73     and associated claims and causes of action, whether now known
74     or unknown (including existing as well as future claims and
75     causes of action), in the Work (i) in all territories
76     worldwide, (ii) for the maximum duration provided by applicable
77     law or treaty (including future time extensions), (iii) in any
78     current or future medium and for any number of copies, and (iv)
79     for any purpose whatsoever, including without limitation
80     commercial, advertising or promotional purposes (the "Waiver").
81     Affirmer makes the Waiver for the benefit of each member of the
82     public at large and to the detriment of Affirmer's heirs and
83     successors, fully intending that such Waiver shall not be
84     subject to revocation, rescission, cancellation, termination,
85     or any other legal or equitable action to disrupt the quiet
86     enjoyment of the Work by the public as contemplated by
87     Affirmer's express Statement of Purpose.
88    
89     3. Public License Fallback.
90     Should any part of the Waiver for any reason be judged legally
91     invalid or ineffective under applicable law, then the Waiver
92     shall be preserved to the maximum extent permitted taking into
93     account Affirmer's express Statement of Purpose. In addition,
94     to the extent the Waiver is so judged Affirmer hereby grants to
95     each affected person a royalty-free, non transferable, non
96     sublicensable, non exclusive, irrevocable and unconditional
97     license to exercise Affirmer's Copyright and Related Rights in
98     the Work (i) in all territories worldwide, (ii) for the maximum
99     duration provided by applicable law or treaty (including future
100     time extensions), (iii) in any current or future medium and for
101     any number of copies, and (iv) for any purpose whatsoever,
102     including without limitation commercial, advertising or
103     promotional purposes (the "License"). The License shall be
104     deemed effective as of the date CC0 was applied by Affirmer to
105     the Work. Should any part of the License for any reason be
106     judged legally invalid or ineffective under applicable law,
107     such partial invalidity or ineffectiveness shall not invalidate
108     the remainder of the License, and in such case Affirmer hereby
109     affirms that he or she will not (i) exercise any of his or her
110     remaining Copyright and Related Rights in the Work or (ii)
111     assert any associated claims and causes of action with respect
112     to the Work, in either case contrary to Affirmer's express
113     Statement of Purpose.
114    
115     4. Limitations and Disclaimers.
116     a. No trademark or patent rights held by Affirmer are waived,
117     abandoned, surrendered, licensed or otherwise affected by
118     this document.
119    
120     b. Affirmer offers the Work as-is and makes no representations
121     or warranties of any kind concerning the Work, express,
122     implied, statutory or otherwise, including without
123     limitation warranties of title, merchantability, fitness for
124     a particular purpose, non infringement, or the absence of
125     latent or other defects, accuracy, or the present or absence
126     of errors, whether or not discoverable, all to the greatest
127     extent permissible under applicable law.
128    
129     c. Affirmer disclaims responsibility for clearing rights of
130     other persons that may apply to the Work or any use thereof,
131     including without limitation any person's Copyright and
132     Related Rights in the Work. Further, Affirmer disclaims
133     responsibility for obtaining any necessary consents,
134     permissions or other rights required for any use of the
135     Work.
136    
137     d. Affirmer understands and acknowledges that Creative Commons
138     is not a party to this document and has no duty or
139     obligation with respect to this CC0 or use of the Work.
