Add IJG license for media-libs/jpeg, bug 447278.

1 In plain English:
3 1. We don't promise that this software works. (But if you find any bugs,
4 please let us know!)
5 2. You can use this software for whatever you want. You don't have to pay us.
6 3. You may not pretend that you wrote this software. If you use it in a
7 program, you must acknowledge somewhere in your documentation that
8 you've used the IJG code.
10 In legalese:
12 The authors make NO WARRANTY or representation, either express or implied,
13 with respect to this software, its quality, accuracy, merchantability, or
14 fitness for a particular purpose. This software is provided "AS IS", and you,
15 its user, assume the entire risk as to its quality and accuracy.
17 This software is copyright (C) 1991-2012, Thomas G. Lane, Guido Vollbeding.
18 All Rights Reserved except as specified below.
20 Permission is hereby granted to use, copy, modify, and distribute this
21 software (or portions thereof) for any purpose, without fee, subject to these
22 conditions:
23 (1) If any part of the source code for this software is distributed, then this
24 README file must be included, with this copyright and no-warranty notice
25 unaltered; and any additions, deletions, or changes to the original files
26 must be clearly indicated in accompanying documentation.
27 (2) If only executable code is distributed, then the accompanying
28 documentation must state that "this software is based in part on the work of
29 the Independent JPEG Group".
30 (3) Permission for use of this software is granted only if the user accepts
31 full responsibility for any undesirable consequences; the authors accept
32 NO LIABILITY for damages of any kind.
34 These conditions apply to any software derived from or based on the IJG code,
35 not just to the unmodified library. If you use our work, you ought to
36 acknowledge us.
38 Permission is NOT granted for the use of any IJG author's name or company name
39 in advertising or publicity relating to this software or products derived from
40 it. This software may be referred to only as "the Independent JPEG Group's
41 software".
43 We specifically permit and encourage the use of this software as the basis of
44 commercial products, provided that all warranty or liability claims are
45 assumed by the product vendor.
48 ansi2knr.c is included in this distribution by permission of L. Peter Deutsch,
49 sole proprietor of its copyright holder, Aladdin Enterprises of Menlo Park, CA.
50 ansi2knr.c is NOT covered by the above copyright and conditions, but instead
51 by the usual distribution terms of the Free Software Foundation; principally,
52 that you must include source code if you redistribute it. (See the file
53 ansi2knr.c for full details.) However, since ansi2knr.c is not needed as part
54 of any program generated from the IJG code, this does not limit you more than
55 the foregoing paragraphs do.
57 The Unix configuration script "configure" was produced with GNU Autoconf.
58 It is copyright by the Free Software Foundation but is freely distributable.
59 The same holds for its supporting scripts (config.guess, config.sub,
60 ltmain.sh). Another support script, install-sh, is copyright by X Consortium
61 but is also freely distributable.
63 The IJG distribution formerly included code to read and write GIF files.
64 To avoid entanglement with the Unisys LZW patent, GIF reading support has
65 been removed altogether, and the GIF writer has been simplified to produce
66 "uncompressed GIFs". This technique does not use the LZW algorithm; the
67 resulting GIF files are larger than usual, but are readable by all standard
68 GIF decoders.
70 We are required to state that
71 "The Graphics Interchange Format(c) is the Copyright property of
72 CompuServe Incorporated. GIF(sm) is a Service Mark property of
73 CompuServe Incorporated."
