1 The Clarified Artistic License
2
3 Preamble
4
5 The intent of this document is to state the conditions under which a
6 Package may be copied, such that the Copyright Holder maintains some
7 semblance of artistic control over the development of the package,
8 while giving the users of the package the right to use and distribute
9 the Package in a more-or-less customary fashion, plus the right to make
10 reasonable modifications.
11
12 Definitions:
13
14 "Package" refers to the collection of files distributed by the
15 Copyright Holder, and derivatives of that collection of files
16 created through textual modification.
17
18 "Standard Version" refers to such a Package if it has not been
19 modified, or has been modified in accordance with the wishes
20 of the Copyright Holder as specified below.
21
22 "Copyright Holder" is whoever is named in the copyright or
23 copyrights for the package.
24
25 "You" is you, if you're thinking about copying or distributing
26 this Package.
27
28 "Distribution fee" is a fee you charge for providing a copy
29 of this Package to another party.
30
31 "Freely Available" means that no fee is charged for the right to
32 use the item, though there may be fees involved in handling the
33 item. It also means that recipients of the item may redistribute
34 it under the same conditions they received it.
35
36 1. You may make and give away verbatim copies of the source form of the
37 Standard Version of this Package without restriction, provided that you
38 duplicate all of the original copyright notices and associated disclaimers.
39
40 2. You may apply bug fixes, portability fixes and other modifications
41 derived from the Public Domain, or those made Freely Available, or from
42 the Copyright Holder. A Package modified in such a way shall still be
43 considered the Standard Version.
44
45 3. You may otherwise modify your copy of this Package in any way, provided
46 that you insert a prominent notice in each changed file stating how and
47 when you changed that file, and provided that you do at least ONE of the
48 following:
49
50 a) place your modifications in the Public Domain or otherwise make them
51 Freely Available, such as by posting said modifications to Usenet or an
52 equivalent medium, or placing the modifications on a major network
53 archive site allowing unrestricted access to them, or by allowing the
54 Copyright Holder to include your modifications in the Standard Version
55 of the Package.
56
57 b) use the modified Package only within your corporation or organization.
58
59 c) rename any non-standard executables so the names do not conflict
60 with standard executables, which must also be provided, and provide
61 a separate manual page for each non-standard executable that clearly
62 documents how it differs from the Standard Version.
63
64 d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.
65
66 e) permit and encourge anyone who receives a copy of the modified Package
67 permission to make your modifications Freely Available
68 in some specific way.
69
70
71 4. You may distribute the programs of this Package in object code or
72 executable form, provided that you do at least ONE of the following:
73
74 a) distribute a Standard Version of the executables and library files,
75 together with instructions (in the manual page or equivalent) on where
76 to get the Standard Version.
77
78 b) accompany the distribution with the machine-readable source of
79 the Package with your modifications.
80
81 c) give non-standard executables non-standard names, and clearly
82 document the differences in manual pages (or equivalent), together
83 with instructions on where to get the Standard Version.
84
85 d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.
86
87 e) offer the machine-readable source of the Package, with your
88 modifications, by mail order.
89
90 5. You may charge a distribution fee for any distribution of this Package.
91 If you offer support for this Package, you may charge any fee you choose
92 for that support. You may not charge a license fee for the right to use
93 this Package itself. You may distribute this Package in aggregate with
94 other (possibly commercial and possibly nonfree) programs as part of a
95 larger (possibly commercial and possibly nonfree) software distribution,
96 and charge license fees for other parts of that software distribution,
97 provided that you do not advertise this Package as a product of your own.
98 If the Package includes an interpreter, You may embed this Package's
99 interpreter within an executable of yours (by linking); this shall be
100 construed as a mere form of aggregation, provided that the complete
101 Standard Version of the interpreter is so embedded.
102
103 6. The scripts and library files supplied as input to or produced as
104 output from the programs of this Package do not automatically fall
105 under the copyright of this Package, but belong to whoever generated
106 them, and may be sold commercially, and may be aggregated with this
107 Package. If such scripts or library files are aggregated with this
108 Package via the so-called "undump" or "unexec" methods of producing a
109 binary executable image, then distribution of such an image shall
110 neither be construed as a distribution of this Package nor shall it
111 fall under the restrictions of Paragraphs 3 and 4, provided that you do
112 not represent such an executable image as a Standard Version of this
113 Package.
114
115 7. C subroutines (or comparably compiled subroutines in other
116 languages) supplied by you and linked into this Package in order to
117 emulate subroutines and variables of the language defined by this
118 Package shall not be considered part of this Package, but are the
119 equivalent of input as in Paragraph 6, provided these subroutines do
120 not change the language in any way that would cause it to fail the
121 regression tests for the language.
122
123 8. Aggregation of the Standard Version of the Package with a commercial
124 distribution is always permitted provided that the use of this Package
125 is embedded; that is, when no overt attempt is made to make this Package's
126 interfaces visible to the end user of the commercial distribution.
127 Such use shall not be construed as a distribution of this Package.
128
129 9. The name of the Copyright Holder may not be used to endorse or promote
130 products derived from this software without specific prior written permission.
131
132 10. THIS PACKAGE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS OR
133 IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED
134 WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTIBILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
135
136 The End
