3     SMAIL GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
4     (Clarified 11 Feb 1988)
5 aliz 1.1
6     Copyright (C) 1988 Landon Curt Noll & Ronald S. Karr
7     Copyright (C) 1992 Ronald S. Karr
8     Copyleft (GNU) 1988 Landon Curt Noll & Ronald S. Karr
9    
10     Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
11     of this license, but changing it is not allowed. You can also
12     use this wording to make the terms for other programs.
13    
14     The license agreements of most software companies keep you at the
15     mercy of those companies. By contrast, our general public license is
16     intended to give everyone the right to share SMAIL. To make sure that
17     you get the rights we want you to have, we need to make restrictions
18     that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender
19     the rights. Hence this license agreement.
20    
21     Specifically, we want to make sure that you have the right to give
22     away copies of SMAIL, that you receive source code or else can get it
23     if you want it, that you can change SMAIL or use pieces of it in new
24     free programs, and that you know you can do these things.
25    
26     To make sure that everyone has such rights, we have to forbid you to
27     deprive anyone else of these rights. For example, if you distribute
28     copies of SMAIL, you must give the recipients all the rights that you
29     have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
30     source code. And you must tell them their rights.
31    
32     Also, for our own protection, we must make certain that everyone
33     finds out that there is no warranty for SMAIL. If SMAIL is modified by
34     someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what
35     they have is not what we distributed, so that any problems introduced
36     by others will not reflect on our reputation.
37    
38 jer 1.3 Therefore we (Landon Curt Noll and Ronald S. Karr) make the following
39     terms which say what you must do to be allowed to distribute or change
40 aliz 1.1 SMAIL.
41    
42    
43 jer 1.3 COPYING POLICIES
44 aliz 1.1
45     1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of SMAIL source code
46     as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
47     appropriately publish on each copy a valid copyright notice "Copyright
48     (C) 1988 Landon Curt Noll & Ronald S. Karr" (or with whatever year is
49     appropriate); keep intact the notices on all files that refer to this
50     License Agreement and to the absence of any warranty; and give any
51     other recipients of the SMAIL program a copy of this License
52     Agreement along with the program. You may charge a distribution fee
53     for the physical act of transferring a copy.
54    
55     2. You may modify your copy or copies of SMAIL or any portion of it,
56     and copy and distribute such modifications under the terms of
57     Paragraph 1 above, provided that you also do the following:
58    
59     a) cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating
60     that you changed the files and the date of any change; and
61    
62     b) cause the whole of any work that you distribute or publish,
63     that in whole or in part contains or is a derivative of SMAIL or
64     any part thereof, to be licensed at no charge to all third
65     parties on terms identical to those contained in this License
66     Agreement (except that you may choose to grant more extensive
67     warranty protection to some or all third parties, at your option).
68    
69     c) You may charge a distribution fee for the physical act of
70     transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer warranty
71     protection in exchange for a fee.
72    
73     Mere aggregation of another unrelated program with this program (or its
74     derivative) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring
75     the other program under the scope of these terms.
76    
77     3. You may copy and distribute SMAIL (or a portion or derivative of it,
78     under Paragraph 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
79     Paragraphs 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
80    
81     a) accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
82     source code, which must be distributed under the terms of
83     Paragraphs 1 and 2 above; or,
84    
85     b) accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
86     years, to give any third party free (except for a nominal
87     shipping charge) a complete machine-readable copy of the
88     corresponding source code, to be distributed under the terms of
89     Paragraphs 1 and 2 above; or,
90    
91     c) accompany it with the information you received as to where the
92     corresponding source code may be obtained. (This alternative is
93     allowed only for non-commercial distribution and only if you
94     received the program in object code or executable form alone.)
95    
96     For an executable file, complete source code means all the source code for
97     all modules it contains; but, as a special exception, it need not include
98     source code for modules which are standard libraries that accompany the
99     operating system on which the executable file runs.
100    
101     4. You may not copy, sublicense, distribute or transfer SMAIL
102     except as expressly provided under this License Agreement. Any attempt
103     otherwise to copy, sublicense, distribute or transfer SMAIL is void and
104     your rights to use the program under this License agreement shall be
105     automatically terminated. However, parties who have received computer
106     software programs from you with this License Agreement will not have
107     their licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
108    
109     5. If you wish to incorporate parts of SMAIL into other free
110     programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to Landon
111 jer 1.3 Curt Noll & Ronald S. Karr via the Free Software Foundation at 51
112     Franklin St, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301, USA. We have not yet
113 aliz 1.1 worked out a simple rule that can be stated here, but we will often
114     permit this. We will be guided by the two goals of preserving the
115     free status of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting
116     the sharing and reuse of software.
117    
118     Your comments and suggestions about our licensing policies and our
119     software are welcome! This contract was based on the contract made by
120     the Free Software Foundation. Please contact the Free Software
121 jer 1.3 Foundation, Inc., 51 Franklin St, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301,
122 aliz 1.1 USA, or call (617) 542-5942 for details on copylefted material in
123     general.
124    
125 jer 1.3 NO WARRANTY
126 aliz 1.1
127     BECAUSE SMAIL IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, WE PROVIDE ABSOLUTELY NO
128     WARRANTY, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE STATE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN
129     OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING, LANDON CURT NOLL & RONALD S. KARR AND/OR
130     OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE SMAIL "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND,
131     EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED
132     WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
133     THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF SMAIL IS WITH
134     YOU. SHOULD SMAIL PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL
135     NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
136    
137     IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW WILL LANDON CURT NOLL &
138     RONALD S. KARR AND/OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND REDISTRIBUTE
139     SMAIL AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY
140     LOST PROFITS, LOST MONIES, OR OTHER SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR
141     CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE
142     (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED
143     INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE
144     PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS) SMAIL, EVEN IF YOU HAVE
145     BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, OR FOR ANY CLAIM BY
146     ANY OTHER PARTY.
