15 GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
16 Version 2, June 1991
17 Extended by Szymon Stefanek
18
19 Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
20 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA
21 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
22 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
23
24 Preamble
25
26 The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
27 freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public
28 License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
29 software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This
30 General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
31 Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
32 using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
33 the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to
34 your programs, too.
35
36 When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
37 price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
38 have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
39 this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
40 if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
41 in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
42
43 To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
44 anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
45 These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
46 distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
47
48 For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
49 gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
50 you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
51 source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their
52 rights.
53
54 We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
55 (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
56 distribute and/or modify the software.
57
58 Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
59 that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
60 software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
61 want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
62 that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
63 authors' reputations.
64
65 Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
66 patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
67 program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
68 program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
69 patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
70
71 The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
72 modification follow.
73
74 GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
75 TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
76
77 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
78 a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
79 under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below,
80 refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
81 means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
82 that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
83 either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
84 language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
85 the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you".
86
87 Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
88 covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of
89 running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
90 is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
91 Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
92 Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
93
94 1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
95 source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
96 conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
97 copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
98 notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
99 and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
100 along with the Program.
101
102 You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
103 you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
104
105 2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
106 of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
107 distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
108 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
109
110 a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
111 stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
112
113 b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
114 whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
115 part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
116 parties under the terms of this License.
117
118 c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
119 when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
120 interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
121 announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
122 notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
123 a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
124 these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
125 License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
126 does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
127 the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
128
129 These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
130 identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
131 and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
132 themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
133 sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you
134 distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
135 on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
136 this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
137 entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
138
139 Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
140 your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
141 exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
142 collective works based on the Program.
143
144 In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
145 with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
146 a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
147 the scope of this License.
148
149 3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
150 under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
151 Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
152
153 a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
154 source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
155 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
156
157 b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
158 years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
159 cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
160 machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
161 distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
162 customarily used for software interchange; or,
163
164 c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
165 to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is
166 allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
167 received the program in object code or executable form with such
168 an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
169
170 The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
171 making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source
172 code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
173 associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
174 control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a
175 special exception, the source code distributed need not include
176 anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
177 form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
178 operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
179 itself accompanies the executable.
180
181 If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
182 access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
183 access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
184 distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
185 compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
186
187 4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
188 except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt
189 otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
190 void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
191 However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
192 this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
193 parties remain in full compliance.
194
195 5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
196 signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
197 distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are
198 prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by
199 modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
200 Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
201 all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
202 the Program or works based on it.
203
204 6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
205 Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
206 original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
207 these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further
208 restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
209 You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
210 this License.
211
212 7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
213 infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
214 conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
215 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
216 excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot
217 distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
218 License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
219 may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent
220 license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
221 all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
222 the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
223 refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
224
225 If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
226 any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
227 apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
228 circumstances.
229
230 It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
231 patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
232 such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
233 integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
234 implemented by public license practices. Many people have made
235 generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
236 through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
237 system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
238 to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
239 impose that choice.
240
241 This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
242 be a consequence of the rest of this License.
243
244 8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
245 certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
246 original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
247 may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
248 those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
249 countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates
250 the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
251
252 9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
253 of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will
254 be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
255 address new problems or concerns.
256
257 Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
258 specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
259 later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
260 either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
261 Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of
262 this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
263 Foundation.
264
265 10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
266 programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
267 to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free
268 Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
269 make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals
270 of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
271 of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
272
273 NO WARRANTY
274
275 11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
276 FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN
277 OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
278 PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
279 OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
280 MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS
281 TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE
282 PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
283 REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
284
285 12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
286 WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
287 REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
288 INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
289 OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
290 TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
291 YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
292 PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
293 POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
294
295 13. As a special exception, Szymon Stefanek gives permission to link this
296 program with Qt non-commercial edition for Windows, and distribute the resulting executable,
297 without including the source code for the Qt non-commercial edition in the source
298 distribution. The Qt non-commercial edition library is covered by the
299 Qt Non-Commercial license. See http://www.trolltech.com for informations.
