1 The Artistic License
2 Version 2.0beta5, October 2001
3
4 Copyright (C) 2000, 2001 Larry Wall, Bradley M. Kuhn.
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 development of
13 that Package (at least as much artistic control as can be given under
14 copyright law while still making the Package open source and free software).
15
16 This license is bound by copyright law, and thus it legally applies only to
17 works which the copyright holder has permitted copying, distribution or
18 modification under the terms of the Artistic License, Version 2.0.
19
20 You are reminded that You are always permitted to make arrangements wholly
21 outside of a given copyright license directly with the copyright holder(s)
22 of a given Package. If the terms of this license impede your ability to
23 make full use of the Package, You are encouraged to contact the copyright
24 holder(s) and seek a different licensing arrangement.

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