Add ACE and sun-iiop licenses for dev-libs/ace, bug 455530.

1 Copyright and Licensing Information for ACE(TM), TAO(TM), CIAO(TM),
2 and CoSMIC(TM)
4 ACE(TM), TAO(TM), CIAO(TM), and CoSMIC(TM) (henceforth referred to as
5 "DOC software") are copyrighted by Douglas C. Schmidt and his research
6 group at Washington University, University of California, Irvine, and
7 Vanderbilt University, Copyright (c) 1993-2009, all rights reserved.
8 Since DOC software is open-source, freely available software,
9 you are free to use, modify, copy, and distribute--perpetually and
10 irrevocably--the DOC software source code and object code produced
11 from the source, as well as copy and distribute modified versions of
12 this software. You must, however, include this copyright statement
13 along with any code built using DOC software that you release. No
14 copyright statement needs to be provided if you just ship binary
15 executables of your software products.
17 You can use DOC software in commercial and/or binary software releases
18 and are under no obligation to redistribute any of your source code
19 that is built using DOC software. Note, however, that you may not do
20 anything to the DOC software code, such as copyrighting it yourself
21 or claiming authorship of the DOC software code, that will prevent
22 DOC software from being distributed freely using an open-source
23 development model. You needn't inform anyone that you're using DOC
24 software in your software, though we encourage you to let us know so
25 we can promote your project in the DOC software success stories.
27 The ACE, TAO, CIAO, and CoSMIC web sites are maintained by the
28 DOC Group at the Institute for Software Integrated Systems (ISIS)
29 and the Center for Distributed Object Computing of Washington
30 University, St. Louis for the development of open-source software
31 as part of the open-source software community. Submissions are
32 provided by the submitter ``as is'' with no warranties whatsoever,
33 including any warranty of merchantability, noninfringement of
34 third party intellectual property, or fitness for any particular
35 purpose. In no event shall the submitter be liable for any direct,
36 indirect, special, exemplary, punitive, or consequential damages,
37 including without limitation, lost profits, even if advised of the
38 possibility of such damages. Likewise, DOC software is provided
39 as is with no warranties of any kind, including the warranties
40 of design, merchantability, and fitness for a particular purpose,
41 noninfringement, or arising from a course of dealing, usage or trade
42 practice. Washington University, UC Irvine, Vanderbilt University,
43 their employees, and students shall have no liability with respect to
44 the infringement of copyrights, trade secrets or any patents by DOC
45 software or any part thereof. Moreover, in no event will Washington
46 University, UC Irvine, or Vanderbilt University, their employees, or
47 students be liable for any lost revenue or profits or other special,
48 indirect and consequential damages.
50 DOC software is provided with no support and without any obligation on
51 the part of Washington University, UC Irvine, Vanderbilt University,
52 their employees, or students to assist in its use, correction,
53 modification, or enhancement. A number of companies around the world
54 provide commercial support for DOC software, however.
56 DOC software is Y2K-compliant, as long as the underlying OS platform
57 is Y2K-compliant. Likewise, DOC software is compliant with the new US
58 daylight savings rule passed by Congress as "The Energy Policy Act
59 of 2005," which established new daylight savings times (DST) rules
60 for the United States that expand DST as of March 2007. Since DOC
61 software obtains time/date and calendaring information from operating
62 systems users will not be affected by the new DST rules as long as
63 they upgrade their operating systems accordingly.
65 The names ACE(TM), TAO(TM), CIAO(TM), CoSMIC(TM), Washington
66 University, UC Irvine, and Vanderbilt University, may not be used
67 to endorse or promote products or services derived from this source
68 without express written permission from Washington University, UC
69 Irvine, or Vanderbilt University. This license grants no permission to
70 call products or services derived from this source ACE(TM), TAO(TM),
71 CIAO(TM), or CoSMIC(TM), nor does it grant permission for the name
72 Washington University, UC Irvine, or Vanderbilt University to appear
73 in their names.
75 If you have any suggestions, additions, comments, or questions,
76 please let me know.
78 Douglas C. Schmidt
