3 SMAIL GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
4 (Clarified 11 Feb 1988)
5

7 Copyright (C) 1992 Ronald S. Karr
8 Copyleft (GNU) 1988 Landon Curt Noll & Ronald S. Karr

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 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 SMAIL.
41

43 COPYING POLICIES
44
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 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 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 Foundation, Inc., 51 Franklin St, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301,
122 USA, or call (617) 542-5942 for details on copylefted material in
123 general.
124
125 NO WARRANTY
126
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.
