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
11 HEREUNDER.

13
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.
