Add Artistic Free License version 3.0.

1 Academic Free License ("AFL") v. 3.0
3 This Academic Free License (the "License") applies to any original work
4 of authorship (the "Original Work") whose owner (the "Licensor") has
5 placed the following licensing notice adjacent to the copyright notice
6 for the Original Work:
8 Licensed under the Academic Free License version 3.0
10 1) Grant of Copyright License. Licensor grants You a worldwide,
11 royalty-free, non-exclusive, sublicensable license, for the duration of
12 the copyright, to do the following:
14 a) to reproduce the Original Work in copies, either alone or as part of
15 a collective work;
17 b) to translate, adapt, alter, transform, modify, or arrange the Original
18 Work, thereby creating derivative works ("Derivative Works") based upon
19 the Original Work;
21 c) to distribute or communicate copies of the Original Work and Derivative
22 Works to the public, under any license of your choice that does not
23 contradict the terms and conditions, including Licensor's reserved rights
24 and remedies, in this Academic Free License;
26 d) to perform the Original Work publicly; and
28 e) to display the Original Work publicly.
30 2) Grant of Patent License. Licensor grants You a worldwide, royalty-free,
31 non-exclusive, sublicensable license, under patent claims owned or
32 controlled by the Licensor that are embodied in the Original Work as
33 furnished by the Licensor, for the duration of the patents, to make,
34 use, sell, offer for sale, have made, and import the Original Work and
35 Derivative Works.
37 3) Grant of Source Code License. The term "Source Code" means the
38 preferred form of the Original Work for making modifications to it
39 and all available documentation describing how to modify the Original
40 Work. Licensor agrees to provide a machine-readable copy of the Source
41 Code of the Original Work along with each copy of the Original Work
42 that Licensor distributes. Licensor reserves the right to satisfy this
43 obligation by placing a machine-readable copy of the Source Code in an
44 information repository reasonably calculated to permit inexpensive and
45 convenient access by You for as long as Licensor continues to distribute
46 the Original Work.
48 4) Exclusions From License Grant. Neither the names of Licensor's
49 trademarks, copyrights, patents, trade secrets or any other intellectual
50 property. No patent license is granted to make, use, sell, offer for
51 sale, have made, or import embodiments of any patent claims other than
52 the licensed claims defined in Section 2. No license is granted to the
53 trademarks of Licensor even if such marks are included in the Original
54 Work. Nothing in this License shall be interpreted to prohibit Licensor
55 from licensing under terms different from this License any Original Work
56 that Licensor otherwise would have a right to license.
58 5) External Deployment. The term "External Deployment" means the use,
59 distribution, or communication of the Original Work or Derivative Works
60 in any way such that the Original Work or Derivative Works may be used by
61 anyone other than You, whether those works are distributed or communicated
62 to those persons or made available as an application intended for use over
63 a network. As an express condition for the grants of license hereunder,
64 You must treat any External Deployment by You of the Original Work or
65 a Derivative Work as a distribution under section 1(c).
67 6) Attribution Rights. You must retain, in the Source Code of any
68 Derivative Works that You create, all copyright, patent, or trademark
69 notices from the Source Code of the Original Work, as well as any
70 notices of licensing and any descriptive text identified therein as an
71 "Attribution Notice." You must cause the Source Code for any Derivative
72 Works that You create to carry a prominent Attribution Notice reasonably
73 calculated to inform recipients that You have modified the Original Work.
75 7) Warranty of Provenance and Disclaimer of Warranty. Licensor warrants
76 that the copyright in and to the Original Work and the patent rights
77 granted herein by Licensor are owned by the Licensor or are sublicensed
78 to You under the terms of this License with the permission of the
79 contributor(s) of those copyrights and patent rights. Except as
80 expressly stated in the immediately preceding sentence, the Original
81 Work is provided under this License on an "AS IS" BASIS and WITHOUT
82 WARRANTY, either express or implied, including, without limitation,
83 the warranties of non-infringement, merchantability or fitness for a
85 WORK IS WITH YOU. This DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY constitutes an essential
86 part of this License. No license to the Original Work is granted by this
87 License except under this disclaimer.
89 8) Limitation of Liability. Under no circumstances and under no legal
90 theory, whether in tort (including negligence), contract, or otherwise,
91 shall the Licensor be liable to anyone for any indirect, special,
92 incidental, or consequential damages of any character arising as a
93 result of this License or the use of the Original Work including, without
94 limitation, damages for loss of goodwill, work stoppage, computer failure
95 or malfunction, or any and all other commercial damages or losses. This
96 limitation of liability shall not apply to the extent applicable law
97 prohibits such limitation.
99 9) Acceptance and Termination. If, at any time, You expressly assented to
100 this License, that assent indicates your clear and irrevocable acceptance
101 of this License and all of its terms and conditions. If You distribute or
102 communicate copies of the Original Work or a Derivative Work, You must
103 make a reasonable effort under the circumstances to obtain the express
104 assent of recipients to the terms of this License. This License conditions
105 your rights to undertake the activities listed in Section 1, including
106 your right to create Derivative Works based upon the Original Work,
107 and doing so without honoring these terms and conditions is prohibited
108 by copyright law and international treaty. Nothing in this License
109 is intended to affect copyright exceptions and limitations (including
110 "fair use" or "fair dealing"). This license shall terminate immediately
111 and You may no longer exercise any of the rights granted to You by this
112 License upon your failure to honor the conditions in Section 1(c).
114 10) Termination for Patent Action. This License shall terminate
115 automatically and You may no longer exercise any of the rights granted
116 to You by this License as of the date You commence an action, including
117 a cross-claim or counterclaim, against Licensor or any licensee alleging
118 that the Original Work infringes a patent. This termination provision
119 shall not apply for an action alleging patent infringement by combinations
120 of the Original Work with other software or hardware.
122 11) Jurisdiction, Venue and Governing Law. Any action or suit relating to
123 this License may be brought only in the courts of a jurisdiction wherein
124 the Licensor resides or in which Licensor conducts its primary business,
125 and under the laws of that jurisdiction excluding its conflict-of-law
126 provisions. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts
127 for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. Any use of the
128 Original Work outside the scope of this License or after its termination
129 shall be subject to the requirements and penalties of copyright or
130 patent law in the appropriate jurisdiction. This section shall survive
131 the termination of this License.
133 12) Attorneys' Fees. In any action to enforce the terms of this License or
134 seeking damages relating thereto, the prevailing party shall be entitled
135 to recover its costs and expenses, including, without limitation,
136 reasonable attorneys' fees and costs incurred in connection with such
137 action, including any appeal of such action. This section shall survive
138 the termination of this License.
140 13) Miscellaneous. If any provision of this License is held to be
141 unenforceable, such provision shall be reformed only to the extent
142 necessary to make it enforceable.
144 14) Definition of "You" in This License. "You" throughout this License,
145 whether in upper or lower case, means an individual or a legal entity
146 exercising rights under, and complying with all of the terms of, this
147 License. For legal entities, "You" includes any entity that controls,
148 is controlled by, or is under common control with you. For purposes of
149 this definition, "control" means (i) the power, direct or indirect, to
150 cause the direction or management of such entity, whether by contract
151 or otherwise, or (ii) ownership of fifty percent (50%) or more of the
152 outstanding shares, or (iii) beneficial ownership of such entity.
154 15) Right to Use. You may use the Original Work in all ways not otherwise
155 restricted or conditioned by this License or by law, and Licensor promises
156 not to interfere with or be responsible for such uses by You.
158 16) Modification of This License. This License is Copyright ©
159 2005 Lawrence Rosen. Permission is granted to copy, distribute, or
160 communicate this License without modification. Nothing in this License
161 permits You to modify this License as applied to the Original Work or
162 to Derivative Works. However, You may modify the text of this License
163 and copy, distribute or communicate your modified version (the "Modified
164 License") and apply it to other original works of authorship subject to
165 the following conditions: (i) You may not indicate in any way that your
166 Modified License is the "Academic Free License" or "AFL" and you may
167 not use those names in the name of your Modified License; (ii) You must
168 replace the notice specified in the first paragraph above with the notice
169 "Licensed under <insert your license name here>" or with a notice of your
170 own that is not confusingly similar to the notice in this License; and
171 (iii) You may not claim that your original works are open source software
172 unless your Modified License has been approved by Open Source Initiative
173 (OSI) and You comply with its license review and certification process.
