27 2. Grant of Rights
28
29 (A) Copyright Grant- Subject to the terms of this license, including the
30 license conditions and limitations in section 3, each contributor grants
31 you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free copyright license to
32 reproduce its contribution, prepare derivative works of its contribution,
33 and distribute its contribution or any derivative works that you create.
34
35 (B) Patent Grant- Subject to the terms of this license, including the
36 license conditions and limitations in section 3, each contributor grants
37 you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free license under its licensed
38 patents to make, have made, use, sell, offer for sale, import, and/or
39 otherwise dispose of its contribution in the software or derivative works
40 of the contribution in the software.

42
43
44 3. Conditions and Limitations
45
46 (A) No Trademark License- This license does not grant you rights to use
47 any contributors' name, logo, or trademarks.
48
49 (B) If you bring a patent claim against any contributor over patents that
50 you claim are infringed by the software, your patent license from such
51 contributor to the software ends automatically.
52
53 (C) If you distribute any portion of the software, you must retain all
54 copyright, patent, trademark, and attribution notices that are present in
55 the software.
56
57 (D) If you distribute any portion of the software in source code form, you
58 may do so only under this license by including a complete copy of this
59 license with your distribution. If you distribute any portion of the
60 software in compiled or object code form, you may only do so under a
61 license that complies with this license.
62
63 (E) The software is licensed "as-is." You bear the risk of using it. The
64 contributors give no express warranties, guarantees or conditions. You may
65 have additional consumer rights under your local laws which this license
66 cannot change. To the extent permitted under your local laws, the
67 contributors exclude the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness
68 for a particular purpose and non-infringement.
69
70 (F) If you distribute the software or derivative works with programs you
71 develop, you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless all
72 contributors from any claims, including attorneys' fees, related to the
73 distribution or use of your programs. For clarity, you have no such
74 obligations to a contributor for any claims based solely on the unmodified
75 contributions of that contributor.
76
77 (G) If you make any additions or changes to the original software, you
78 may only distribute them under a new namespace. In addition, you will
79 clearly identify your changes or additions as your own.
