Added the 2nd edition of the Artistic License (for packages like Magick).

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:
192
193 THIS SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED BY THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND CONTRIBUTORS
194 "AS IS" AND ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT

197 LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER OR CONTRIBUTOR
198 BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY,
199 OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, PROCUREMENT
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.
