7 MOLMOL is a molecular graphics program for displaying, analysing, and
8 manipulating the three-dimensional structure of biological macromolecules,
9 with special emphasis on the study of protein or DNA structures determined
10 by NMR. The following is legal information pertaining to the use of the
11 MOLMOL program. It applies to all MOLMOL source files, executable (binary)
12 files, configuration files, documentation files contained in the official
13 MOLMOL archives. (Certain portions refer to custom versions of the
14 software, there are specific rules listed below for these versions also.)
15 All of these are referred to here as "the software".

17 THIS NOTICE MUST ACCOMPANY ALL OFFICIAL OR CUSTOM MOLMOL FILES. IT MAY NOT
18 BE REMOVED OR MODIFIED. THIS INFORMATION PERTAINS TO ALL USE OF THE PACKAGE
19 WORLDWIDE. THIS DOCUMENT SUPERSEDES ALL PREVIOUS LICENSES OR DISTRIBUTION
20 POLICIES.

23 IMPORTANT LEGAL INFORMATION
24
25 Permission is granted to the user to use the MOLMOL program and all
26 associated files in this package for making calculations and creating
27 images. The use of the software for this purpose is free. The user retains
28 all rights to these results and may use them for any purpose commercial or
29 noncommercial. When plots prepared by MOLMOL are used in lectures,
30 publications or other similar occasions, then a reference to the authors
31 and the following paper is to be made:

33 Koradi, R., Billeter, M., and W├╝thrich, K. (1996)
34 J Mol Graphics, 14, 51-55.
35 MOLMOL: a program for display and analysis of
36 macromolecular structures.
37
38 This software package and all of the files in this archive are copyrighted
39 by BRUKER/Spectrospin and ETH Zurich. They may only be distributed and/or
40 modified according to the guidelines listed below. The spirit of the
41 guidelines below is to provide the full MOLMOL package freely to as many
42 users as possible, prevent MOLMOL users and developers from being taken
43 advantage of, enhance the life quality of those who come in contact with
44 MOLMOL. This legal document was created so these goals could be realized.
45 You are legally bound to follow these rules, but we hope you will follow
46 them as a matter of ethics, rather than fear of litigation.
47
48 No portion of this package may be separated from the package and
49 distributed separately other than under the conditions specified in the
50 guidelines below.
51
52 This package may only be bundled in other software packages with the
53 explicit permission of the copyright holders.
54
55 This package may only be included in software compilations using media such
56 as, but not limited to, floppy disk, CD-ROM, tape backup, optical disks,
57 hard disks, or memory cards with the explicit permission of the copyright
58 holders.
59
60 The user is granted the privilege to modify and compile the source for
61 their own personal use in any fashion they see fit. What you do with the
62 software in your own home is your business.
63
64 If the user wishes to distribute a modified version of the software,
65 documentation or other parts of the package (here after referred to as
66 a "custom version") they must follow the guidelines listed below. These
67 guidelines have been established to promote the growth of MOLMOL and
68 prevent difficulties for users and developers alike. Please follow them
69 carefully for the benefit of all concerned when creating a custom version.
70
71 You may not incorporate any portion of the MOLMOL source code in any
72 software other than a custom version of MOLMOL without the explicit
73 permission of the copyright holders. However authors who contribute source
74 to MOLMOL may still retain all rights to use their contributed code for any
75 purpose as described below.
76
77 The user is encouraged to send enhancements and bug fixes to the MOLMOL
78 authors, but the authors are in no way required to utilize these
79 enhancements or fixes. By sending material to the authors, the contributor
80 asserts that he owns the materials or has the right to distribute these
81 materials. He authorizes the MOLMOL authors to use the materials any way
82 they like. The contributor still retains rights to the donated material,
83 but by donating you grant equal rights to the MOLMOL authors. The MOLMOL
84 authors don't have to use the material, but if we do, you do not acquire
85 any rights related to MOLMOL. We will give you credit if applicable.
86
87
88 GENERAL RULES FOR ALL DISTRIBUTION
89
90 The permission to distribute this package under certain very specific
91 conditions is granted in advance, provided that the above and following
92 conditions are met.
93
94 These archives must not be re-archived using a different method without the
95 explicit permission of the authors. You may rename the archives only to
96 meet the file name conventions of your system or to avoid file name
97 duplications but we ask that you try to keep file names as similar to the
98 originals as possible.
99
100 You must distribute a full package of archives as described in the next
101 section.
102
103 Noncommercial distribution (such as a user copying the software for a
104 personal friend or colleague and not charging money or services for that
105 copy) has no other restrictions. All forms of commercial distribution
106 are only allowed with explicit permission of the copyright holders.
107
108 The copyright holders reserve the right to withdraw distribution privileges
109 from any group, individual, or organization for any reason.
