5 Copyright (C) 2000, Ethymonics Limited
7 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this
8 license document, but changing it is not allowed.
10 Preamble
12 The licenses for most musical works are designed to take away your
13 freedom to share the music. By contrast, this Free Music License is
14 intended to guarantee your freedom to make copies of a piece of music,
15 and charge for this service if you wish. Recipients of those copies
16 have the same freedom. The word "Free" in "Free Music License" means
17 the freedom to make copies. It does not mean that those copies cannot
18 then be sold.
20 This license is designed to protect and pass on the right to make
21 copies to whoever receives a copy. This encourages wide distribution on
22 the artist's behalf. You can apply this license to your own music too.
24 To protect the right to copy the music, it is necessary to pass on
25 certain requirements that must be followed when the music is copied or
26 distributed. For example, if you distribute a piece of music subject to
27 this license, even if this is done for a fee, you must give the
28 recipients all the rights that you have. You must show them these terms
29 so that they know their rights.
31 The freedom to copy is protected by two things: (1) Copyright of the
32 music, and (2) This license that provides legal permission to copy and
33 distribute the music.
35 The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
36 performance follow.
42 1. This License applies to any musical work or other type of work which
43 has a notice placed by the copyright holder saying that it may be
44 distributed under the terms of this Free Music License. The "Music",
45 below, refers to any such music or work, whether in a recording,
46 performance or other form of musical representation, or any derivative
47 work under copyright law: that is to say, a work, in any medium,
48 containing the Music or a portion of it, either unaltered, modified and
49 or re-performed.
51 You may play or perform the Music publicly, for example in a broadcast,
52 provided that you make available to listeners the title of the work and
53 the name of the Artist. A recording made as a result of the Music being
54 played or performed is covered by this License when its contents
55 constitute a work based on the Music. If a listener wishes to make
56 copies of such a recording, the terms and conditions of this License
57 must be made available to them, along with any other information
58 required to make and distribute copies according to the terms and
59 conditions of this License.
61 2. You may copy and distribute copies of the Music as you receive it,
62 in any medium, provided that you:
64 (a) conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
65 copyright notice;
67 (b) keep intact all the notices that refer to this License;
69 (c) supply, with each copy of the Music, all significant information
70 about the Music, including the title of the work, the name of the
71 artist, and the names and roles of all credited personnel;
73 (d) supply, to each recipient of the Music, along with the Music,
74 either a copy of this License or a clearly visible URL that lets the
75 recipient know where to find a copy of this License on the Internet.
77 If the information required by (a) to (d) above is not available, for
78 example when the Music has been received by making a recording of a
79 performance, then this information must be obtained independently and
80 no copies can be made or distributed without this information being
81 included with each copy of the Music.
83 You may, at your option, charge a fee for the act of supplying a copy
84 of the Music.
86 3. You may not copy, distribute, perform or sub-license the Music
87 except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt to
88 otherwise do so is void, and will automatically terminate your rights
89 under this License. However, parties who have received copies, or
90 rights, from you under this License will not have their Licenses
91 terminated as long as such parties remain in full compliance.
93 4. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
94 signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to copy,
95 distribute, play or perform the Music or any of its derivative works.
96 Therefore, by copying, distributing, playing or performing the Music,
97 or any of its derivative works, you indicate your acceptance of this
98 License to do so, and all of its terms and conditions.
100 5. Each time you redistribute the Music the recipient automatically
101 receives a license from the original licensor to copy, distribute, play
102 and or perform the Music subject to the terms and conditions of this
103 License. You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipient's
104 exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible for
105 enforcing compliance by third parties to this License.
107 6. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of copyright
108 infringement or for any reason (not limited to copyright issues),
109 conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
110 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
111 excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot satisfy
112 simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other
113 pertinent obligations, then your rights under this License are
114 terminated. For example, if an existing agreement would not permit
115 royalty-free redistribution of the Music by all those who receive
116 copies directly or indirectly through you, then the only way to satisfy
117 both it and this License would be to refrain entirely from
118 redistributing the Music.
120 If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
121 any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
122 apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
123 circumstances.
125 It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
126 copyright or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
127 such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
128 integrity of a music distribution system, which is implemented by
129 copyright and license practices.
131 7. If an activity permitted by this License is restricted in certain
132 countries either for copyright or other reasons, the original copyright
133 holder who places the Music under this License may add an explicit
134 geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries, so that
135 distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded.
136 In such cases, this License incorporates the limitation as if written
137 in the body of this License.
139 8. Ethymonics may publish revised and or new versions of the Free Music
140 License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit
141 to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new
142 problems as they arise.
144 Each License is given a distinguishing version number. If the Music
145 specifies a version number of this License which applies to it, and
146 "any later version", you have the option of following the terms and
147 conditions either of that version or any later version published by
148 Ethymonics. If the Music does not specify a version number of this
149 License, you may choose any version ever published by Ethymonics.
151 9. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Music into another work
152 whose distribution conditions are different, write to the composer to
153 ask for permission.
