1 prez 1.1 The Artistic License
2     Version 2.0beta4, October 2000
3    
4     Copyright (C) 2000, Larry Wall.
5     Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
6     of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
7    
8     Preamble
9    
10     This copyright license states the terms under which a given free software
11     Package may be copied, modified and/or redistributed, while the
12     Originator(s) maintain some artistic control over the future
13     development of that Package (at least as much artistic control as can be
14     given under copyright law while still making the Package open source and
15     free software).
16    
17     This license is bound by copyright law, and thus it legally applies only to
18     works which the copyright holder has permitted copying, distribution or
19     modification under the terms of the Artistic License, Version 2.0.
20    
21     You are reminded that You are always permitted to make arrangements wholly
22     outside of a given copyright license directly with the copyright
23     holder(s) of a given Package. If the terms of this license
24     impede your ability to make full use of the Package, You are encouraged to
25     contact the copyright holder(s) and seek a different licensing
26     arrangement.
27    
28     Definitions
29    
30     "Package" refers to the collection of files distributed by the
31     Originator(s), and derivatives of that collection of files
32     created through textual modification.
33    
34     "Standard Version" refers to the Package if it has not been modified, or
35     has been modified only in ways suggested by the Originator(s).
36    
37     "Modified Version" refers to the Package, if it has been changed by You
38     via textual modification of the source code, and such changes were not
39     suggested by the Originator(s).
40    
41     "Originator" refers to the author(s) and/or copyright
42     holder(s) of the Standard Version of the Package.
43    
44     "You" and "Your" refers to any person who would like to copy,
45     distribute, or modify the Package.
46    
47     "Distribution Fee" is any fee that You charge for providing a copy of
48     this Package to another party. It does not refer to licensing fees.
49    
50     "Freely Available" means that:
51    
52     (a) no fee is charged for the right to use the item (though a
53     Distribution Fee may be charged).
54    
55     (b) recipients of the item may redistribute it under the same
56     conditions they received it.
57    
58     (c) If the item is a binary, object code, bytecode, the complete
59     corresponding machine-readable source code is included with the
60     item.
61    
62     Permission for Use and Modification Without Redistribution
63    
64     (1) You are permitted to use the Standard Version and create and use
65     Modified Versions for any purpose without restriction, provided that
66     you do not redistribute the Modified Version to others outside of your
67     company or organization.
68    
69     Permissions for Redistribution of the Standard Version
70    
71     (2) You may make available verbatim copies of the source code of the
72     Standard Version of this Package in any medium without restriction,
73     either gratis or for a Distribution Fee, provided that you duplicate
74     all of the original copyright notices and associated disclaimers. At
75     Your discretion, such verbatim copies may or may not include compiled
76     bytecode, object code or binary versions of the corresponding source
77     code in the same medium.
78    
79     (3) You may apply any bug fixes, portability changes, and other
80     modifications made available from any of the Originator(s). The
81     resulting modified Package will still be considered the Standard
82     Version, and may be copied, modified and redistributed under the terms
83     of the original license of the Standard Version as if it were the
84     Standard Version.
85    
86     Permissions for Redistribution of Modified Versions of the Package as Source
87    
88     (4) You may modify your copy of the source code of this Package in any way
89     and distribute that Modified Version (either gratis or for a
90     Distribution Fee, and with or without a corresponding binary, bytecode
91     or object code version of the Modified Version) provided that You
92     clearly indicate what changes You made to the Package, and provided
93     that You do at least ONE of the following:
94    
95     (a) make the Modified Version available to the Originator(s) of the
96     Standard Version, under the exact license of the Standard
97     Version, so that the Originator(s) may include your modifications
98     into the Standard Version (at their discretion).
99    
100     (b) modify any installation scripts and procedures so that
101     installation of the Modified Version will never conflict with an
102     installation of the Standard Version, include for each program
103     installed by the Modified Version clear documentation describing
104     how it differs from the Standard Version, and rename your
105     Modified Version so that the name is substantially different from
106     the Standard Version.
107    
108     (c) permit and encourage anyone who receives a copy of the Modified
109     Version permission to make your modifications Freely Available in
110     some specific way.
111    
112     If Your Modified Version is in turn derived from a Modified Version
113     made by a third party, then You are still required to ensure that Your
114     Modified Version complies with the requirements of this license.
115    
116     Permissions for Redistribution of Non-Source Versions of Package
117    
118     (5) You may distribute binary, object code, bytecode or other non-source
119     versions of the Standard Version of the Package, provided that you
120     include complete instructions on where to get the source code of the
121     Standard Version. Such instructions must be valid at the time of Your
122     distribution. If these instructions, at any time while You are
123     carrying our such distribution, become invalid, you must provide new
124     instructions on demand or cease further distribution. If You cease
125     distribution within thirty days after You become aware that the
126     instructions are invalid, then You do not forfeit any of Your rights
127     under this license.
128    
129     (6) You may distribute binary, object code, bytecode or other non-source
130     versions of a Modified Version provided that You do at least ONE of
131     the following:
132    
133     (a) include a copy of the corresponding source code for the Modified
134     Version under the terms indicated in (4).
135    
136     (b) ensure that the installation of Your non-source Modified Version
137     does not conflict in any way with an installation of the Standard
138     Version, include for each program installed by the Modified
139     Version clear documentation describing how it differs from the
140     Standard Version, and rename your Modified Version so that the
141     name is substantially different from the Standard Version.
142    
143     (c) ensure that the Modified Version includes notification of the
144     changes made from the Standard Version, and offer to provide
145     machine-readable source code (under a license that permits making
146     that source code Freely Available) of the Modified Version via
147     mail order.
148    
149     Permissions for Inclusion of the Package in Aggregate Works
150    
151     (7) You may aggregate this Package (either the Standard Version or
152     Modified Version) with other packages and distribute the resulting
153     aggregation provided that You do not charge a licensing fee for the
154     Package. Distribution Fees are permitted, and licensing fees for
155     other packages in the aggregation are permitted. Your permission to
156     distribute Standard or Modified Versions of the Package is still
157     subject to the other terms set forth in other sections of this
158     license.
159    
160     (8) In addition to the permissions given elsewhere by this license, You
161     are also permitted to link Modified and Standard Versions of this
162     Package with other works and distribute the result without
163     restriction, provided You have produced binary program(s) that do not
164     overtly expose the interfaces of the Package. This includes
165     permission to embed the Package in a larger work of your own without
166     exposing a direct interface to the Package. This also includes
167     permission to build stand-alone binary or bytecode versions of your
168     scripts that require the Package, but do not otherwise give the casual
169     user direct access to the Package itself.
170    
171     Items That are Never Considered Part of a Modified Version Package
172    
173     (9) Works (including, but not limited to, subroutines and scripts) that
174     you have linked or aggregated with the Package that merely extend or
175     make use of the Package, but are not intended to cause the Package to
176     operate differently from the Standard Version, do not, by themselves,
177     cause the Package to be a Modified Version. In addition, such works
178     are not considered parts of the Package itself, and are not bound by
179     the terms of the Package's license.
180    
181     Acceptance of License and Disclaimer of Warranty
182    
183     (10) You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed
184     it. However, nothing else grants you permission to copy, modify or
185     distribute the Standard or Modified Versions of the Package. These
186     actions are prohibited by copyright law if you do not accept this
187     License. Therefore, by copying, modifying or distributing Standard
188     and Modified Versions of the Package, you indicate your acceptance of
189     the license of the Package.
190    
191     (11) Disclaimer of Warranty:

200     OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES; LOSS OF USE, DATA, PROFITS; OR
201     BUSINESS INTERRUPTION) HOWEVER CAUSED AND ON ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY,
202     WHETHER IN CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE
203     OR OTHERWISE) ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THE USE OF THIS SOFTWARE,
204     EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE.
