28 FOR ANY SPECIAL, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR ANY DAMAGES

34 Some further comments:
35
36 Every effort has been made to ensure that Festival does not contain
37 any violation of intellectual property rights through disclosure of
38 trade secrets, copyright or patent violation. Considerable time and
39 effort has been spent to ensure that this is the case. However,
40 especially with patent problems, it is not always within our control
41 to know what has or has not been restricted. If you do suspect that
42 some part of Festival cannot be legally distributed please please
43 inform us so that an alternative may be sought. Festival is only
44 useful if it is truly free to distribute.
45
46 As of 1.4.0 the core distribution (and speech tools) is free. Unlike
47 previous versions which had a commercial restriction. You are free to
48 incorporate Festival in commercial (and of course non-commercial
49 systems), without any further communication or licence from us.
50 However if you are seriously using Festival within a commercial
51 application we would like to know, both so we know we are contributing
52 and so we can keep you informed of future developments. Also if you
53 require maintenance, support or wish us to provide consultancy feel
54 free to contact us.
55
56 The voices however aren't all free. At present the US voices, kal and
57 ked are free. Our British voices are free themselves but they use OALD
58 which is restricted for non-commercial use. Our Spanish voice is also
59 so restricted.
60
61 Note other modules that festival supports e.g MBROLA and OGI
62 extensions, may have different licencing please take care when using
63 the system to understand what you are actually using.

67 A number of individual files in the system fall under a different
68 copyright from the above. All however are termed "free software"
69 but most people.

76 shouldn't cause problems from most people.
