1 markusle 1.1 UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS
2     VISUAL MOLECULAR DYNAMICS SOFTWARE LICENSE AGREEMENT
3    
4     Upon execution of this Agreement by the party identified below ("Licensee"),
5     The Board of Trustees of the University of Illinois ("Illinois"), on behalf
6     of The Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group ("TCBG") in the Beckman
7     Institute, will provide the Visual Molecular Dynamics ("VMD") software in
8     ExecutableCode and/or Source Code form ("Software") to Licensee, subject to
9     the following terms and conditions. For purposes of this Agreement,
10     Executable Code is the compiled code, which is ready to run on Licensee's
11     computer. Source code consists of a set of files which contain the actual
12     program commands that are compiled to form the Executable Code.
13    
14     1. The Software is intellectual property owned by Illinois, and all right,
15     title and interest, including copyright, remain with Illinois. Illinois
16     grants, and Licensee hereby accepts, a restricted, non-exclusive,
17     non-transferable license to use the Software for academic, research and
18     internal business purposes only, e.g. not for commercial use (see Clause 7
19     below), without a fee.
20    
21     2. Licensee may, at its own expense, create and freely distribute
22     complimentary works that interoperate with the Software, directing others to
23     the TCBG server to license and obtain the Software itself. Licensee may, at
24     its own expense, modify the Software to make derivative works. Except as
25     explicitly provided below, this License shall apply to any derivative work
26     as it does to the original Software distributed by Illinois. Any derivative
27     work should be clearly marked and renamed to notify users that it is a
28     modified version and not the original Software distributed by Illinois.
29     Licensee agrees to reproduce the copyright notice and other proprietary
30     markings on any derivative work and to include in the documentation of such
31     work the acknowledgement:
32    
33     "This software includes code developed by the Theoretical and Computational
34     Biophysics Group in the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and
35     Technology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign."
36    
37     Licensee may redistribute without restriction works with up to 1/2 of their
38     non-comment source code derived from at most 1/10 of the non-comment source
39     code developed by Illinois and contained in the Software, provided that the
40     above directions for notice and acknowledgement are observed. Any other
41     distribution of the Software or any derivative work requires a separate
42     license with Illinois. Licensee may contact Illinois (vmd@ks.uiuc.edu) to
43     negotiate an appropriate license for such distribution.
44    
45     3. Except as expressly set forth in this Agreement, THIS SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED
46     "AS IS" AND ILLINOIS MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS AND EXTENDS NO WARRANTIES OF
47     ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO WARRANTIES
48     OR MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR THAT THE USE OF
49     THE SOFTWARE WILL NOT INFRINGE ANY PATENT, TRADEMARK, OR OTHER RIGHTS.
50     LICENSEE ASSUMES THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE RESULTS AND PERFORMANCE OF THE
51     SOFTWARE AND/OR ASSOCIATED MATERIALS. LICENSEE AGREES THAT UNIVERSITY SHALL
52     NOT BE HELD LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT,INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR INCIDENTAL
53     DAMAGES WITH RESPECT TO ANY CLAIM BY LICENSEE OR ANY THIRD PARTY ON ACCOUNT
54     OF OR ARISING FROM THIS AGREEMENT OR USE OF THE SOFTWARE AND/OR ASSOCIATED
55     MATERIALS.
56    
57     4. Licensee understands the Software is proprietary to Illinois. Licensee
58     agrees to take all reasonable steps to insure that the Softwareis
59     protected and secured from unauthorized disclosure, use, or release and
60     will treat it with at least the same level of care as Licensee would use to
61     protect and secure its own proprietary computer programs and/or information,
62     but using no less than a reasonable standard of care. Licensee agrees to
63     provide the Software only to any other person or entity who has registered
64     with Illinois. If licensee is not registering as an individual but as an
65     institution or corporation each member of the institution or corporation
66     who has access to or uses Software must agree to and abide by the terms
67     of this license. If Licensee becomes aware of any unauthorized licensing,
68     copying or use of the Software, Licensee shall promptly notify Illinois
69     in writing. Licensee expressly agrees to use the Software only in the
70     manner and for the specific uses authorized in this Agreement.
71    
72     5. By using or copying this Software, Licensee agrees to abide by the
73     copyright law and all other applicable laws of the U.S. including, but not
74     limited to, export control laws and the terms of this license. Illinois
75     shall have the right to terminate this license immediately by written
76     notice upon Licensee's breach of, or non-compliance with, any
77     terms of the license. Licensee may be held legally responsible for any
78     copyright infringement that is caused or encouraged by its failure to
79     abideby the terms of this license. Upon termination, Licensee agrees to
80     destroyall copies of the Software in its possession and to verify such
81     destruction in writing.
82    
83     6. The user agrees that any reports or published results obtained with
84     the Software will acknowledge its use by the appropriate citation as
85     follows:
86    
87     "VMD was developed by the Theoretical and Computational Biophysics Group
88     in the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology at the
89     University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign."
90    
91     Any published work which utilizes VMD shall include the following reference:
92     "Humphrey, W., Dalke, A. and Schulten, K., `VMD -Visual Molecular
93     Dynamics', J. Molecular Graphics, 1996, vol. 14, pp. 33-38."
94    
95     Electronic documents will include a direct link to the official VMD page
96     at http://www.ks.uiuc.edu/Research/vmd/
97    
98     7. Commercial use of the Software, or derivative works based thereon,
99     REQUIRES A COMMERCIAL LICENSE. Should Licensee wish to make commercial
100     use of the Software, Licensee will contact Illinois (vmd@ks.uiuc.edu) to
101     negotiate an appropriate license for such use. Commercial use includes:
102     (1) integration of all or part of the Software into a product for sale,
103     lease or license by or on behalf of Licensee to third parties, or
104     (2) distribution of the Software to third parties that need it to
105     commercialize product sold or licensed by or on behalf of Licensee.
106    
107     8. Government Rights. Because substantial governmental funds have been
108     used in the development of VMD, any possession, use or sublicense of the
109     Software by or to the United States government shall be subject to such
110     required restrictions.
111    
112     9. VMD is being distributed as a research and teaching tool and as
113     such, TCBG encourages contributions from users of the code that might, at
114     Illinois' sole discretion, be used or incorporated to make the basic
115     operating framework of the Software a more stable, flexible, and/or useful
116     product. Licensees who contribute their code to become an internal
117     portion of the Software agree that such code may be distributed by
118     Illinois under the terms of this License and may be required to sign an
119     "Agreement Regarding Contributory Code for VMD Software" before Illinois
120     can accept it (contact vmd@ks.uiuc.edu for a copy).
121    
122     UNDERSTOOD AND AGREED.
