1 Open Software License v. 2.1
2 ============================
3 This Open Software License (the "License") applies to any original work
4 of authorship (the "Original Work") whose owner (the "Licensor") has
5 placed the following notice immediately following the copyright notice
6 for the Original Work: Licensed under the Open Software License version 2.1
8 1) Grant of Copyright License. Licensor hereby grants You a world-wide,
9 royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual, sublicenseable license to do
10 the following:
12 to reproduce the Original Work in copies;
13 to prepare derivative works ("Derivative Works") based upon the Original Work;
14 to distribute copies of the Original Work and Derivative Works to the
15 public, with the proviso that copies of Original Work or Derivative Works
16 that You distribute shall be licensed under the Open Software License;
17 to perform the Original Work publicly; and
18 to display the Original Work publicly.
20 2) Grant of Patent License. Licensor hereby grants You a world-wide,
21 royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual, sublicenseable license, under
22 patent claims owned or controlled by the Licensor that are embodied in
23 the Original Work as furnished by the Licensor, to make, use, sell and
24 offer for sale the Original Work and Derivative Works.
26 3) Grant of Source Code License. The term "Source Code" means the
27 preferred form of the Original Work for making modifications to it
28 and all available documentation describing how to modify the Original
29 Work. Licensor hereby agrees to provide a machine-readable copy of the
30 Source Code of the Original Work along with each copy of the Original
31 Work that Licensor distributes. Licensor reserves the right to satisfy
32 this obligation by placing a machine-readable copy of the Source Code in
33 an information repository reasonably calculated to permit inexpensive and
34 convenient access by You for as long as Licensor continues to distribute
35 the Original Work, and by publishing the address of that information
36 repository in a notice immediately following the copyright notice that
37 applies to the Original Work.
39 4) Exclusions From License Grant. Neither the names of Licensor, nor
40 the names of any contributors to the Original Work, nor any of their
41 trademarks or service marks, may be used to endorse or promote products
42 derived from this Original Work without express prior written permission
43 of the Licensor. Nothing in this License shall be deemed to grant any
44 rights to trademarks, copyrights, patents, trade secrets or any other
45 intellectual property of Licensor except as expressly stated herein. No
46 patent license is granted to make, use, sell or offer to sell embodiments
47 of any patent claims other than the licensed claims defined in Section
48 2. No right is granted to the trademarks of Licensor even if such marks
49 are included in the Original Work. Nothing in this License shall be
50 interpreted to prohibit Licensor from licensing under different terms
51 from this License any Original Work that Licensor otherwise would have
52 a right to license.
54 5) External Deployment. The term "External Deployment" means the use or
55 distribution of the Original Work or Derivative Works in any way such that
56 the Original Work or Derivative Works may be used by anyone other than
57 You, whether the Original Work or Derivative Works are distributed to
58 those persons or made available as an application intended for use over
59 a computer network. As an express condition for the grants of license
60 hereunder, You agree that any External Deployment by You of a Derivative
61 Work shall be deemed a distribution and shall be licensed to all under
62 the terms of this License, as prescribed in section 1(c) herein.
64 6) Attribution Rights. You must retain, in the Source Code of any
65 Derivative Works that You create, all copyright, patent or trademark
66 notices from the Source Code of the Original Work, as well as any
67 notices of licensing and any descriptive text identified therein as an
68 "Attribution Notice." You must cause the Source Code for any Derivative
69 Works that You create to carry a prominent Attribution Notice reasonably
70 calculated to inform recipients that You have modified the Original Work.
72 7) Warranty of Provenance and Disclaimer of Warranty. Licensor
73 warrants that the copyright in and to the Original Work and the patent
74 rights granted herein by Licensor are owned by the Licensor or are
75 sublicensed to You under the terms of this License with the permission
76 of the contributor(s) of those copyrights and patent rights. Except as
77 expressly stated in the immediately proceeding sentence, the Original
78 Work is provided under this License on an "AS IS" BASIS and WITHOUT
79 WARRANTY, either express or implied, including, without limitation,
82 WORK IS WITH YOU. This DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY constitutes an essential
83 part of this License. No license to Original Work is granted hereunder
84 except under this disclaimer.
86 8) Limitation of Liability. Under no circumstances and under no legal
87 theory, whether in tort (including negligence), contract, or otherwise,
88 shall the Licensor be liable to any person for any direct, indirect,
89 special, incidental, or consequential damages of any character arising
90 as a result of this License or the use of the Original Work including,
91 without limitation, damages for loss of goodwill, work stoppage, computer
92 failure or malfunction, or any and all other commercial damages or
93 losses. This limitation of liability shall not apply to liability for
94 death or personal injury resulting from Licensor's negligence to the
95 extent applicable law prohibits such limitation. Some jurisdictions do
96 not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential
97 damages, so this exclusion and limitation may not apply to You.
99 9) Acceptance and Termination. If You distribute copies of the Original
100 Work or a Derivative Work, You must make a reasonable effort under the
101 circumstances to obtain the express assent of recipients to the terms of
102 this License. Nothing else but this License (or another written agreement
103 between Licensor and You) grants You permission to create Derivative Works
104 based upon the Original Work or to exercise any of the rights granted
105 in Section 1 herein, and any attempt to do so except under the terms of
106 this License (or another written agreement between Licensor and You)
107 is expressly prohibited by U.S. copyright law, the equivalent laws of
108 other countries, and by international treaty. Therefore, by exercising
109 any of the rights granted to You in Section 1 herein, You indicate Your
110 acceptance of this License and all of its terms and conditions. This
111 License shall terminate immediately and you may no longer exercise any
112 of the rights granted to You by this License upon Your failure to honor
113 the proviso in Section 1(c) herein.
115 10) Termination for Patent Action. This License shall terminate
116 automatically and You may no longer exercise any of the rights granted
117 to You by this License as of the date You commence an action, including
118 a cross-claim or counterclaim, against Licensor or any licensee alleging
119 that the Original Work infringes a patent. This termination provision
120 shall not apply for an action alleging patent infringement by combinations
121 of the Original Work with other software or hardware.
123 11) Jurisdiction, Venue and Governing Law. Any action or suit relating to this License may be brought only in the courts of a jurisdiction wherein the Licensor resides or in which Licensor conducts its primary business, and under the laws of that jurisdiction excluding its conflict-of-law provisions. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. Any use of the Original Work outside the scope of this License or after its termination shall be subject to the requirements and penalties of the U.S. Copyright Act, 17 U.S.C. ยง 101 et seq., the equivalent laws of other countries, and international treaty. This section shall survive the termination of this License.
125 12) Attorneys Fees. In any action to enforce the terms of this License or
126 seeking damages relating thereto, the prevailing party shall be entitled
127 to recover its costs and expenses, including, without limitation,
128 reasonable attorneys' fees and costs incurred in connection with such
129 action, including any appeal of such action. This section shall survive
130 the termination of this License.
132 13) Miscellaneous. This License represents the complete agreement
133 concerning the subject matter hereof. If any provision of this License
134 is held to be unenforceable, such provision shall be reformed only to
135 the extent necessary to make it enforceable.
137 14) Definition of "You" in This License. "You" throughout this License,
138 whether in upper or lower case, means an individual or a legal entity
139 exercising rights under, and complying with all of the terms of, this
140 License. For legal entities, "You" includes any entity that controls,
141 is controlled by, or is under common control with you. For purposes of
142 this definition, "control" means (i) the power, direct or indirect, to
143 cause the direction or management of such entity, whether by contract
144 or otherwise, or (ii) ownership of fifty percent (50%) or more of the
145 outstanding shares, or (iii) beneficial ownership of such entity.
147 15) Right to Use. You may use the Original Work in all ways not otherwise
148 restricted or conditioned by this License or by law, and Licensor promises
149 not to interfere with or be responsible for such uses by You.
151 This license is Copyright (C) 2003-2004 Lawrence E. Rosen. All rights
152 reserved. Permission is hereby granted to copy and distribute this
153 license without modification. This license may not be modified without
154 the express written permission of its copyright owner.
