9 Introduction
10 ============
11
12 The FreeType Project is distributed in several archive packages;
13 some of them may contain, in addition to the FreeType font engine,
14 various tools and contributions which rely on, or relate to, the
15 FreeType Project.
16
17 This license applies to all files found in such packages, and
18 which do not fall under their own explicit license. The license
19 affects thus the FreeType font engine, the test programs,
20 documentation and makefiles, at the very least.
21
22 This license was inspired by the BSD, Artistic, and IJG
23 (Independent JPEG Group) licenses, which all encourage inclusion
24 and use of free software in commercial and freeware products
25 alike. As a consequence, its main points are that:
26
27 o We don't promise that this software works. However, we are be
28 interested in any kind of bug reports. (`as is' distribution)
29
30 o You can use this software for whatever you want, in parts or
31 full form, without having to pay us. (`royalty-free' usage)
32
33 o You may not pretend that you wrote this software. If you use
34 it, or only parts of it, in a program, you must acknowledge
35 somewhere in your documentation that you've used the FreeType
36 code. (`credits')
37
38 We specifically permit and encourage the inclusion of this
39 software, with or without modifications, in commercial products,
40 provided that all warranty or liability claims are assumed by the
41 product vendor.

44 Legal Terms
45 ===========
46
47 0. Definitions
48 --------------
49
50 Throughout this license, the terms `package', `FreeType Project',
51 and `FreeType archive' refer to the set of files originally
52 distributed by the authors (David Turner, Robert Wilhelm, and
53 Werner Lemberg) as the `FreeType project', be they named as alpha,
54 beta or final release.
55
56 `You' refers to the licensee, or person using the project, where
57 `using' is a generic term including compiling the project's source
58 code as well as linking it to form a `program' or `executable'.
59 This program is referred to as `a program using the FreeType
60 engine'.
61
62 This license applies to all files distributed in the original
63 FreeType archive, including all source code, binaries and
64 documentation, unless otherwise stated in the file in its
65 original, unmodified form as distributed in the original archive.
66 If you are unsure whether or not a particular file is covered by
67 this license, you must contact us to verify this.
68
69 The FreeType project is copyright (C) 1996-1999 by David Turner,
70 Robert Wilhelm, and Werner Lemberg. All rights reserved except as
71 specified below.
72
73 1. No Warranty
74 --------------
75
76 THE FREETYPE ARCHIVE IS PROVIDED `AS IS' WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY
77 KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO,
78 WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
79 PURPOSE. IN NO EVENT WILL ANY OF THE AUTHORS OR COPYRIGHT HOLDERS
80 BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES CAUSED BY THE USE OR THE INABILITY TO
81 USE, OF THE FREETYPE PROJECT.
82
83 As you have not signed this license, you are not required to
84 accept it. However, as the FreeType project is copyrighted
85 material, only this license, or another one contracted with the
86 authors, grants you the right to use, distribute, and modify it.
87 Therefore, by using, distributing, or modifying the FreeType
88 project, you indicate that you understand and accept all the terms
89 of this license.
90
91 2. Redistribution
92 -----------------
93
94 Redistribution and use in source and binary forms, with or without
95 modification, are permitted provided that the following conditions
96 are met:
97
98 o Redistribution of source code must retain this license file
99 (`licence.txt') unaltered; any additions, deletions or changes
100 to the original files must be clearly indicated in
101 accompanying documentation. The copyright notices of the
102 unaltered, original files must be preserved in all copies of
103 source files.
104
105 o Redistribution in binary form must provide a disclaimer that
106 states that the software is based in part of the work of the
107 FreeType Team, in the distribution documentation. We also
108 encourage you to put an URL to the FreeType web page in your
109 documentation, though this isn't mandatory.
110
111 These conditions apply to any software derived from or based on
112 the FreeType code, not just the unmodified files. If you use our
113 work, you must acknowledge us. However, no fee need be paid to
114 us.
115

118
119 The names of FreeType's authors and contributors may not be used
120 to endorse or promote products derived from this software without
121 specific prior written permission.
122
123 We suggest, but do not require, that you use one or more of the
124 following phrases to refer to this software in your documentation
125 or advertising materials: `FreeType Project', `FreeType Engine',
126 `FreeType library', or `FreeType Distribution'.
