1 The Open Software License
2 v. 1.0
3
4 This Open Software License (the "License") applies to any original
5 work of authorship (the "Original Work") whose owner (the "Licensor")
6 has placed the following notice immediately following the copyright
7 notice for the Original Work: "Licensed under the Open Software
8 License version 1.0"
9
10 License Terms
11
12 1) Grant of Copyright License. Licensor hereby grants You a
13 world-wide, royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual, non-sublicenseable
14 license to do the following:
15
16 a) to reproduce the Original Work in copies;
17
18 b) to prepare derivative works ("Derivative Works") based upon the
19 Original Work;
20
21 c) to distribute copies of the Original Work and Derivative Works
22 to the public, with the proviso that copies of Original Work or
23 Derivative Works that You distribute shall be licensed under the
24 Open Software License;
25
26 d) to perform the Original Work publicly; and
27
28 e) to display the Original Work publicly.
29
30 2) Grant of Patent License. Licensor hereby grants You a world-wide,
31 royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual, non-sublicenseable license,
32 under patent claims owned or controlled by the Licensor that are
33 embodied in the Original Work as furnished by the Licensor ("Licensed
34 Claims") to make, use, sell and offer for sale the Original Work.
35 Licensor hereby grants You a world-wide, royalty-free, non-exclusive,
36 perpetual, non-sublicenseable license under the Licensed Claims to
37 make, use, sell and offer for sale Derivative Works.
38
39 3) Grant of Source Code License. The term "Source Code" means the
40 preferred form of the Original Work for making modifications to it and
41 all available documentation describing how to access and modify the
42 Original Work. Licensor hereby agrees to provide a machine-readable
43 copy of the Source Code of the Original Work along with each copy of
44 the Original Work that Licensor distributes. Licensor reserves the
45 right to satisfy this obligation by placing a machine-readable copy of
46 the Source Code in an information repository reasonably calculated to
47 permit inexpensive and convenient access by You for as long as
48 Licensor continues to distribute the Original Work, and by publishing
49 the address of that information repository in a notice immediately
50 following the copyright notice that applies to the Original Work.
51
52 4) Exclusions From License Grant. Nothing in this License shall be
53 deemed to grant any rights to trademarks, copyrights, patents, trade
54 secrets or any other intellectual property of Licensor except as
55 expressly stated herein. No patent license is granted to make, use,
56 sell or offer to sell embodiments of any patent claims other than the
57 Licensed Claims defined in Section 2. No right is granted to the
58 trademarks of Licensor even if such marks are included in the Original
59 Work. Nothing in this License shall be interpreted to prohibit
60 Licensor from licensing under different terms from this License any
61 Original Work that Licensor otherwise would have a right to license.
62
63 5) External Deployment. The term "External Deployment" means the use
64 or distribution of the Original Work or Derivative Works in any way
65 such that the Original Work or Derivative Works may be accessed or
66 used by anyone other than You, whether the Original Work or Derivative
67 Works are distributed to those persons, made available as an
68 application intended for use over a computer network, or used to
69 provide services or otherwise deliver content to anyone other than
70 You. As an express condition for the grants of license hereunder, You
71 agree that any External Deployment by You shall be deemed a
72 distribution and shall be licensed to all under the terms of this
73 License, as prescribed in section 1(c) herein.
74
75 6) Warranty and Disclaimer of Warranty. LICENSOR WARRANTS THAT THE
76 COPYRIGHT IN AND TO THE ORIGINAL WORK IS OWNED BY THE LICENSOR OR THAT
77 THE ORIGINAL WORK IS DISTRIBUTED BY LICENSOR UNDER A VALID CURRENT
78 LICENSE FROM THE COPYRIGHT OWNER. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY STATED IN THE
79 IMMEDIATELY PRECEEDING SENTENCE, THE ORIGINAL WORK IS PROVIDED UNDER
80 THIS LICENSE ON AN "AS IS" BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTY, EITHER EXPRESS OR
81 IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE WARRANTY OF
82 NON-INFRINGEMENT AND WARRANTIES THAT THE ORIGINAL WORK IS MERCHANTABLE
83 OR FIT FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY OF
84 THE ORIGINAL WORK IS WITH YOU. THIS DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY CONSTITUTES
85 AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THIS LICENSE. NO LICENSE TO ORIGINAL WORK IS
86 GRANTED HEREUNDER EXCEPT UNDER THIS DISCLAIMER.
87
88 7) Limitation of Liability. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL
89 THEORY, WHETHER TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), CONTRACT, OR OTHERWISE,
90 SHALL THE LICENSOR BE LIABLE TO ANY PERSON FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT,
91 SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY CHARACTER ARISING
92 AS A RESULT OF THIS LICENSE OR THE USE OF THE ORIGINAL WORK INCLUDING,
93 WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE,
94 COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, OR ANY AND ALL OTHER COMMERCIAL
95 DAMAGES OR LOSSES, EVEN IF SUCH PERSON SHALL HAVE BEEN INFORMED OF THE
96 POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SHALL NOT
97 APPLY TO LIABILITY FOR DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY RESULTING FROM SUCH
98 PARTY'S NEGLIGENCE TO THE EXTENT APPLICABLE LAW PROHIBITS SUCH
99 LIMITATION. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR
100 LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THIS EXCLUSION
101 AND LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
102
103 8) Acceptance and Termination. Nothing else but this License (or
104 another written agreement between Licensor and You) grants You
105 permission to create Derivative Works based upon the Original Work,
106 and any attempt to do so except under the terms of this License (or
107 another written agreement between Licensor and You) is expressly
108 prohibited by U.S. copyright law, the equivalent laws of other
109 countries, and by international treaty. Therefore, by exercising any
110 of the rights granted to You in Sections 1 and 2 herein, You indicate
111 Your acceptance of this License and all of its terms and conditions.
112 This license shall terminate immediately and you may no longer
113 exercise any of the rights granted to You by this License upon Your
114 failure to honor the proviso in Section 1(c) herein.
115
116 9) Mutual Termination for Patent Action. This License shall terminate
117 automatically and You may no longer exercise any of the rights granted
118 to You by this License if You file a lawsuit in any court alleging
119 that any OSI Certified open source software that is licensed under any
120 license containing this "Mutual Termination for Patent Action" clause
121 infringes any patent claims that are essential to use that software.
122
123 10) Jurisdiction, Venue and Governing Law. You agree that any lawsuit
124 arising under or relating to this License shall be maintained in the
125 courts of the jurisdiction wherein the Licensor resides or in which
126 Licensor conducts its primary business, and under the laws of that
127 jurisdiction excluding its conflict-of-law provisions. The application
128 of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International
129 Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. Any use of the Original Work
130 outside the scope of this License or after its termination shall be
131 subject to the requirements and penalties of the U.S. Copyright Act,
132 17 U.S.C. ยง 101 et seq., the equivalent laws of other countries, and
133 international treaty. This section shall survive the termination of
134 this License.
135
136 11) Attorneys Fees. In any action to enforce the terms of this License
137 or seeking damages relating thereto, the prevailing party shall be
138 entitled to recover its costs and expenses, including, without
139 limitation, reasonable attorneys' fees and costs incurred in
140 connection with such action, including any appeal of such action. This
141 section shall survive the termination of this License.
142
143 12) Miscellaneous. This License represents the complete agreement
144 concerning the subject matter hereof. If any provision of this License
145 is held to be unenforceable, such provision shall be reformed only to
146 the extent necessary to make it enforceable.
147
148 13) Definition of "You" in This License. "You" throughout this
149 License, whether in upper or lower case, means an individual or a
150 legal entity exercising rights under, and complying with all of the
151 terms of, this License. For legal entities, "You" includes any entity
152 that controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with you.
153 For purposes of this definition, "control" means (i) the power, direct
154 or indirect, to cause the direction or management of such entity,
155 whether by contract or otherwise, or (ii) ownership of fifty percent
156 (50%) or more of the outstanding shares, or (iii) beneficial ownership
157 of such entity.
158
159 This license is Copyright (C) 2002 Lawrence E. Rosen. All rights
160 reserved. Permission is hereby granted to copy and distribute this
161 license without modification. This license may not be modified without
162 the express written permission of its copyright owner.
