2 The Open Software License
3 v. 1.1
5 This Open Software License (the "License") applies to any original work of
6 authorship (the "Original Work") whose owner (the "Licensor") has placed the
7 following notice immediately following the copyright notice for the Original
8 Work:
10 Licensed under the Open Software License version 1.1
13 1) Grant of Copyright License. Licensor hereby grants You a world-wide,
14 royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual, non-sublicenseable license to do the
15 following:
17 a) to reproduce the Original Work in copies;
19 b) to prepare derivative works ("Derivative Works") based upon the
20 Original Work;
22 c) to distribute copies of the Original Work and Derivative Works to
23 the public, with the proviso that copies of Original Work or
24 Derivative Works that You distribute shall be licensed under the
25 Open Software License;
27 d) to perform the Original Work publicly; and
29 e) to display the Original Work publicly.
31 2) Grant of Patent License. Licensor hereby grants You a world-wide,
32 royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual, non-sublicenseable license, under
33 patent claims owned or controlled by the Licensor that are embodied in the
34 Original Work as furnished by the Licensor ("Licensed Claims") to make, use,
35 sell and offer for sale the Original Work. Licensor hereby grants You a
36 world-wide, royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual, non-sublicenseable license
37 under the Licensed Claims to make, use, sell and offer for sale Derivative Works.
39 3) Grant of Source Code License. The term "Source Code" means the preferred
40 form of the Original Work for making modifications to it and all available
41 documentation describing how to modify the Original Work. Licensor hereby
42 agrees to provide a machine-readable copy of the Source Code of the Original
43 Work along with each copy of the Original Work that Licensor distributes.
44 Licensor reserves the right to satisfy this obligation by placing a
45 machine-readable copy of the Source Code in an information repository reasonably
46 calculated to permit inexpensive and convenient access by You for as long as
47 Licensor continues to distribute the Original Work, and by publishing the
48 address of that information repository in a notice immediately following the
49 copyright notice that applies to the Original Work.
52 4) Exclusions From License Grant. Nothing in this License shall be deemed to
53 grant any rights to trademarks, copyrights, patents, trade secrets or any
54 other intellectual property of Licensor except as expressly stated herein. No
55 patent license is granted to make, use, sell or offer to sell embodiments of
56 any patent claims other than the Licensed Claims defined in Section 2. No
57 right is granted to the trademarks of Licensor even if such marks are included
58 in the Original Work. Nothing in this License shall be interpreted to prohibit
59 Licensor from licensing under different terms from this License any Original
60 Work that Licensor otherwise would have a right to license.
62 5) External Deployment. The term "External Deployment" means the use or
63 distribution of the Original Work or Derivative Works in any way such that the
64 Original Work or Derivative Works may be used by anyone other than You,
65 whether the Original Work or Derivative Works are distributed to those persons
66 or made available as an application intended for use over a computer network.
67 As an express condition for the grants of license hereunder, You agree that
68 any External Deployment by You of a Derivative Work shall be deemed a
69 distribution and shall be licensed to all under the terms of this License, as
70 prescribed in section 1(c) herein.
72 6) Attribution Rights. You must retain, in the Source Code of any Derivative
73 Works that You create, all copyright, patent or trademark notices from the
74 Source Code of the Original Work, as well as any notices of licensing and any
75 descriptive text identified therein as an "Attribution Notice." You must cause
76 the Source Code for any Derivative Works that You create to carry a prominent
77 Attribution Notice reasonably calculated to inform recipients that You have
78 modified the Original Work.
80 7) Warranty and Disclaimer of Warranty. Licensor warrants that the copyright
81 in and to the Original Work is owned by the Licensor or that the Original Work
82 is distributed by Licensor under a valid current license from the copyright
83 owner. Except as expressly stated in the immediately proceeding sentence, the
84 Original Work is provided under this License on an "AS IS" BASIS and WITHOUT
85 WARRANTY, either express or implied, including, without limitation, the
88 This DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY constitutes an essential part of this License. No
89 license to Original Work is granted hereunder except under this disclaimer.
91 8) Limitation of Liability. Under no circumstances and under no legal theory,
92 whether in tort (including negligence), contract, or otherwise, shall the
93 Licensor be liable to any person for any direct, indirect, special, incidental,
94 or consequential damages of any character arising as a result of this License
95 or the use of the Original Work including, without limitation, damages for
96 loss of goodwill, work stoppage, computer failure or malfunction, or any and
97 all other commercial damages or losses. This limitation of liability shall not
98 apply to liability for death or personal injury resulting from Licensor's
99 negligence to the extent applicable law prohibits such limitation. Some
100 jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or
101 consequential damages, so this exclusion and limitation may not apply to You.
104 9) Acceptance and Termination. If You distribute copies of the Original Work
105 or a Derivative Work, You must make a reasonable effort under the circumstances
106 to obtain the express and volitional assent of recipients to the terms of this
107 License. Nothing else but this License (or another written agreement between
108 Licensor and You) grants You permission to create Derivative Works based upon
109 the Original Work or to exercise any of the rights granted in Sections 1 herein,
110 and any attempt to do so except under the terms of this License (or another
111 written agreement between Licensor and You) is expressly prohibited by U.S.
112 copyright law, the equivalent laws of other countries, and by international
113 treaty. Therefore, by exercising any of the rights granted to You in Sections
114 1 herein, You indicate Your acceptance of this License and all of its terms and
115 conditions. This License shall terminate immediately and you may no longer
116 exercise any of the rights granted to You by this License upon Your failure to
117 honor the proviso in Section 1(c) herein.
119 10) Mutual Termination for Patent Action. This License shall terminate
120 automatically and You may no longer exercise any of the rights granted to You
121 by this License if You file a lawsuit in any court alleging that any OSI
122 Certified open source software that is licensed under any license containing
123 this "Mutual Termination for Patent Action" clause infringes any patent claims
124 that are essential to use that software.
126 11) Jurisdiction, Venue and Governing Law. Any action or suit relating to this
127 License may be brought only in the courts of a jurisdiction wherein the Licensor
128 resides or in which Licensor conducts its primary business, and under the laws
129 of that jurisdiction excluding its conflict-of-law provisions. The application
130 of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of
131 Goods is expressly excluded. Any use of the Original Work outside the scope of
132 this License or after its termination shall be subject to the requirements and
133 penalties of the U.S. Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. ยง 101 et seq., the equivalent
134 laws of other countries, and international treaty. This section shall survive
135 the termination of this License.
137 12) Attorneys Fees. In any action to enforce the terms of this License or
138 seeking damages relating thereto, the prevailing party shall be entitled to
139 recover its costs and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable
140 attorneys' fees and costs incurred in connection with such action, including
141 any appeal of such action. This section shall survive the termination of this
142 License.
144 13) Miscellaneous. This License represents the complete agreement concerning
145 the subject matter hereof. If any provision of this License is held to be
146 unenforceable, such provision shall be reformed only to the extent necessary
147 to make it enforceable.
149 14) Definition of "You" in This License. "You" throughout this License,
150 whether in upper or lower case, means an individual or a legal entity exercising
151 rights under, and complying with all of the terms of, this License. For legal
152 entities, "You" includes any entity that controls, is controlled by, or is under
153 common control with you. For purposes of this definition, "control" means (i)
154 the power, direct or indirect, to cause the direction or management of such
155 entity, whether by contract or otherwise, or (ii) ownership of fifty percent
156 (50%) or more of the outstanding shares, or (iii) beneficial ownership of such
157 entity.
159 15) Right to Use. You may use the Original Work in all ways not otherwise
160 restricted or conditioned by this License or by law, and Licensor promises not
161 to interfere with or be responsible for such uses by You.
163 This license is Copyright (C) 2002 Lawrence E. Rosen. All rights reserved.
164 Permission is hereby granted to copy and distribute this license without
165 modification. This license may not be modified without the express written
166 permission of its copyright owner.
