1 The VIGRA Artistic License
2 ==========================
3 (modeled after the Perl Artistic License)
4
5
6 Preamble
7 --------
8
9 The intent of this document is to state the conditions under which
10 VIGRA may be copied, such that the author maintains some
11 semblance of artistic control over the development of the library,
12 while giving the users of the library the right to use and
13 distribute VIGRA in a more-or-less customary fashion, plus the
14 right to make reasonable modifications.

16
17 Definitions
18 -----------
19
20 "Copyright Holder" of the VIGRA library is
21 Ullrich Koethe, Cognitive Systems Group, University of Hamburg, Germany.
22
23 "Library" refers to the collection of files distributed by the
24 Copyright Holder under the name "VIGRA" (including this
25 LICENSE file and all accompanying documentation), and derivatives of that
26 collection of files created through textual modification.
27
28 "Standard Version" refers to the Library if it has not been
29 modified, or has been modified in accordance with the wishes of the
30 Copyright Holder as specified below.
31
32 "You" is you, if you're thinking about using, copying, modifying or
33 distributing this Library.
34
35 "Freely Available" means that no fee is charged for the item.
36 It also means that recipients of the item may redistribute it
37 under the same conditions they received it.
38
39 "Reasonable copying fee" is whatever you can justify on the basis
40 of media cost, duplication charges, time of people involved, and so
41 on. (You will not be required to justify it to the Copyright Holder,
42 but only to the computing community at large as a market that must
43 bear the fee.)
44
45
46 License terms
47 -------------

56 copying fee is charged for the software collection.
57
58 3. You may apply bug fixes and portability fixes
59 derived from the Public Domain or from the Copyright Holder. A
60 Library modified in such a way shall still be considered the

67
68 a. place your modifications in the Public Domain or otherwise
69 make them Freely Available, for example by allowing the Copyright
70 Holder to include your modifications in the Standard Version of
71 the Library.

73 b. use the modified Library only within your corporation or
74 organization.

85
86 7. The name of the Copyright Holder or the Library may not be used to
87 endorse or promote products derived from this software without
88 specific prior written permission.
89
90 8. THIS LIBRARY IS PROVIDED AS IS AND WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS OR
91 IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED
92 WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
93
94 IN NO EVENT SHALL THE COPYRIGHT HOLDER BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL,
95 INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND OR ANY DAMAGES
96 WHATSOEVER RESULTING FROM LOSS OF USE, DATA OR PROFITS, WHETHER
97 OR NOT ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, OR ON ANY
98 THEORY OF LIABILITY ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE
99 OR PERFORMANCE OF THIS LIBRARY.
