1 bangert 1.1 The Clarified Artistic License
2    
3     Preamble
4    
5     The intent of this document is to state the conditions under which a
6     Package may be copied, such that the Copyright Holder maintains some
7     semblance of artistic control over the development of the package,
8     while giving the users of the package the right to use and distribute
9     the Package in a more-or-less customary fashion, plus the right to make
10     reasonable modifications.
11    
12     Definitions:
13    
14     "Package" refers to the collection of files distributed by the
15     Copyright Holder, and derivatives of that collection of files
16     created through textual modification.
17    
18     "Standard Version" refers to such a Package if it has not been
19     modified, or has been modified in accordance with the wishes
20     of the Copyright Holder as specified below.
21    
22     "Copyright Holder" is whoever is named in the copyright or
23     copyrights for the package.
24    
25     "You" is you, if you're thinking about copying or distributing
26     this Package.
27    
28     "Distribution fee" is a fee you charge for providing a copy
29     of this Package to another party.
30    
31     "Freely Available" means that no fee is charged for the right to
32     use the item, though there may be fees involved in handling the
33     item. It also means that recipients of the item may redistribute
34     it under the same conditions they received it.
35    
36     1. You may make and give away verbatim copies of the source form of the
37     Standard Version of this Package without restriction, provided that you
38     duplicate all of the original copyright notices and associated disclaimers.
39    
40     2. You may apply bug fixes, portability fixes and other modifications
41     derived from the Public Domain, or those made Freely Available, or from
42     the Copyright Holder. A Package modified in such a way shall still be
43     considered the Standard Version.
44    
45     3. You may otherwise modify your copy of this Package in any way, provided
46     that you insert a prominent notice in each changed file stating how and
47     when you changed that file, and provided that you do at least ONE of the
48     following:
49    
50     a) place your modifications in the Public Domain or otherwise make them
51     Freely Available, such as by posting said modifications to Usenet or an
52     equivalent medium, or placing the modifications on a major network
53     archive site allowing unrestricted access to them, or by allowing the
54     Copyright Holder to include your modifications in the Standard Version
55     of the Package.
56    
57     b) use the modified Package only within your corporation or organization.
58    
59     c) rename any non-standard executables so the names do not conflict
60     with standard executables, which must also be provided, and provide
61     a separate manual page for each non-standard executable that clearly
62     documents how it differs from the Standard Version.
63    
64     d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.
65    
66     e) permit and encourge anyone who receives a copy of the modified Package
67     permission to make your modifications Freely Available
68     in some specific way.
69    
70    
71     4. You may distribute the programs of this Package in object code or
72     executable form, provided that you do at least ONE of the following:
73    
74     a) distribute a Standard Version of the executables and library files,
75     together with instructions (in the manual page or equivalent) on where
76     to get the Standard Version.
77    
78     b) accompany the distribution with the machine-readable source of
79     the Package with your modifications.
80    
81     c) give non-standard executables non-standard names, and clearly
82     document the differences in manual pages (or equivalent), together
83     with instructions on where to get the Standard Version.
84    
85     d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.
86    
87     e) offer the machine-readable source of the Package, with your
88     modifications, by mail order.
89    
90     5. You may charge a distribution fee for any distribution of this Package.
91     If you offer support for this Package, you may charge any fee you choose
92     for that support. You may not charge a license fee for the right to use
93     this Package itself. You may distribute this Package in aggregate with
94     other (possibly commercial and possibly nonfree) programs as part of a
95     larger (possibly commercial and possibly nonfree) software distribution,
96     and charge license fees for other parts of that software distribution,
97     provided that you do not advertise this Package as a product of your own.
98     If the Package includes an interpreter, You may embed this Package's
99     interpreter within an executable of yours (by linking); this shall be
100     construed as a mere form of aggregation, provided that the complete
101     Standard Version of the interpreter is so embedded.
102    
103     6. The scripts and library files supplied as input to or produced as
104     output from the programs of this Package do not automatically fall
105     under the copyright of this Package, but belong to whoever generated
106     them, and may be sold commercially, and may be aggregated with this
107     Package. If such scripts or library files are aggregated with this
108     Package via the so-called "undump" or "unexec" methods of producing a
109     binary executable image, then distribution of such an image shall
110     neither be construed as a distribution of this Package nor shall it
111     fall under the restrictions of Paragraphs 3 and 4, provided that you do
112     not represent such an executable image as a Standard Version of this
113     Package.
114    
115     7. C subroutines (or comparably compiled subroutines in other
116     languages) supplied by you and linked into this Package in order to
117     emulate subroutines and variables of the language defined by this
118     Package shall not be considered part of this Package, but are the
119     equivalent of input as in Paragraph 6, provided these subroutines do
120     not change the language in any way that would cause it to fail the
121     regression tests for the language.
122    
123     8. Aggregation of the Standard Version of the Package with a commercial
124     distribution is always permitted provided that the use of this Package
125     is embedded; that is, when no overt attempt is made to make this Package's
126     interfaces visible to the end user of the commercial distribution.
127     Such use shall not be construed as a distribution of this Package.
128    
129     9. The name of the Copyright Holder may not be used to endorse or promote
130     products derived from this software without specific prior written permission.
131    
132     10. THIS PACKAGE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS OR
133     IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED
134     WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTIBILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
135    
136     The End
