1 Take note of the GNU Affero License (COPYING.GNU), which applies to part
2 of this release, which means you have to follow the requirements laid out
3 in section 13. of both licenses.
4
5 GNU AFFERO GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
6 Version 3, 19 November 2007
7
8 Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc. <http://fsf.org/>
9 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
10 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
11
12 Preamble
13
14 The GNU Affero General Public License is a free, copyleft license
15 for software and other kinds of works, specifically designed to ensure
16 cooperation with the community in the case of network server software.
17
18 The licenses for most software and other practical works are
19 designed to take away your freedom to share and change the works. By
20 contrast, our General Public Licenses are intended to guarantee your
21 freedom to share and change all versions of a program--to make sure it
22 remains free software for all its users.
23
24 When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
25 price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
26 have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
27 them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you
28 want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new
29 free programs, and that you know you can do these things.
30
31 Developers that use our General Public Licenses protect your rights
32 with two steps: (1) assert copyright on the software, and (2) offer
33 you this License which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute
34 and/or modify the software.
35
36 A secondary benefit of defending all users' freedom is that
37 improvements made in alternate versions of the program, if they
38 receive widespread use, become available for other developers to
39 incorporate. Many developers of free software are heartened and
40 encouraged by the resulting cooperation. However, in the case of
41 software used on network servers, this result may fail to come about.
42 The GNU General Public License permits making a modified version and
43 letting the public access it on a server without ever releasing its
44 source code to the public.
45
46 The GNU Affero General Public License is designed specifically to
47 ensure that, in such cases, the modified source code becomes available
48 to the community. It requires the operator of a network server to
49 provide the source code of the modified version running there to the
50 users of that server. Therefore, public use of a modified version, on
51 a publicly accessible server, gives the public access to the source
52 code of the modified version.
53
54 An older license, called the Affero General Public License and
55 published by Affero, was designed to accomplish similar goals. This is
56 a different license, not a version of the Affero GPL, but Affero has
57 released a new version of the Affero GPL which permits relicensing under
58 this license.
59
60 The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
61 modification follow.
62
63 TERMS AND CONDITIONS
64
65 0. Definitions.
66
67 "This License" refers to version 3 of the GNU Affero General Public
68 License.
69
70 "Copyright" also means copyright-like laws that apply to other kinds
71 of works, such as semiconductor masks.
72
73 "The Program" refers to any copyrightable work licensed under this
74 License. Each licensee is addressed as "you". "Licensees" and
75 "recipients" may be individuals or organizations.
76
77 To "modify" a work means to copy from or adapt all or part of the work
78 in a fashion requiring copyright permission, other than the making of an
79 exact copy. The resulting work is called a "modified version" of the
80 earlier work or a work "based on" the earlier work.
81
82 A "covered work" means either the unmodified Program or a work based
83 on the Program.
84
85 To "propagate" a work means to do anything with it that, without
86 permission, would make you directly or secondarily liable for
87 infringement under applicable copyright law, except executing it on a
88 computer or modifying a private copy. Propagation includes copying,
89 distribution (with or without modification), making available to the
90 public, and in some countries other activities as well.
91
92 To "convey" a work means any kind of propagation that enables other
93 parties to make or receive copies. Mere interaction with a user through
94 a computer network, with no transfer of a copy, is not conveying.
95
96 An interactive user interface displays "Appropriate Legal Notices"
97 to the extent that it includes a convenient and prominently visible
98 feature that (1) displays an appropriate copyright notice, and (2)
99 tells the user that there is no warranty for the work (except to the
100 extent that warranties are provided), that licensees may convey the
101 work under this License, and how to view a copy of this License. If
102 the interface presents a list of user commands or options, such as a
103 menu, a prominent item in the list meets this criterion.
104
105 1. Source Code.
106
107 The "source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work
108 for making modifications to it. "Object code" means any non-source
109 form of a work.
110
111 A "Standard Interface" means an interface that either is an official
112 standard defined by a recognized standards body, or, in the case of
113 interfaces specified for a particular programming language, one that
114 is widely used among developers working in that language.
115
116 The "System Libraries" of an executable work include anything, other
117 than the work as a whole, that (a) is included in the normal form of
118 packaging a Major Component, but which is not part of that Major
119 Component, and (b) serves only to enable use of the work with that
120 Major Component, or to implement a Standard Interface for which an
121 implementation is available to the public in source code form. A
122 "Major Component", in this context, means a major essential component
123 (kernel, window system, and so on) of the specific operating system
124 (if any) on which the executable work runs, or a compiler used to
125 produce the work, or an object code interpreter used to run it.
126
127 The "Corresponding Source" for a work in object code form means all
128 the source code needed to generate, install, and (for an executable
129 work) run the object code and to modify the work, including scripts to
130 control those activities. However, it does not include the work's
131 System Libraries, or general-purpose tools or generally available free
132 programs which are used unmodified in performing those activities but
133 which are not part of the work. For example, Corresponding Source
134 includes interface definition files associated with source files for
135 the work, and the source code for shared libraries and dynamically
136 linked subprograms that the work is specifically designed to require,
137 such as by intimate data communication or control flow between those
138 subprograms and other parts of the work.
139
140 The Corresponding Source need not include anything that users
141 can regenerate automatically from other parts of the Corresponding
142 Source.
143
144 The Corresponding Source for a work in source code form is that
145 same work.
146
147 2. Basic Permissions.
148
149 All rights granted under this License are granted for the term of
150 copyright on the Program, and are irrevocable provided the stated
151 conditions are met. This License explicitly affirms your unlimited
152 permission to run the unmodified Program. The output from running a
153 covered work is covered by this License only if the output, given its
154 content, constitutes a covered work. This License acknowledges your
155 rights of fair use or other equivalent, as provided by copyright law.
156
157 You may make, run and propagate covered works that you do not
158 convey, without conditions so long as your license otherwise remains
159 in force. You may convey covered works to others for the sole purpose
160 of having them make modifications exclusively for you, or provide you
161 with facilities for running those works, provided that you comply with
162 the terms of this License in conveying all material for which you do
163 not control copyright. Those thus making or running the covered works
164 for you must do so exclusively on your behalf, under your direction
165 and control, on terms that prohibit them from making any copies of
166 your copyrighted material outside their relationship with you.
167
168 Conveying under any other circumstances is permitted solely under
169 the conditions stated below. Sublicensing is not allowed; section 10
170 makes it unnecessary.
171
172 3. Protecting Users' Legal Rights From Anti-Circumvention Law.
173
174 No covered work shall be deemed part of an effective technological
175 measure under any applicable law fulfilling obligations under article
176 11 of the WIPO copyright treaty adopted on 20 December 1996, or
177 similar laws prohibiting or restricting circumvention of such
178 measures.
179
180 When you convey a covered work, you waive any legal power to forbid
181 circumvention of technological measures to the extent such circumvention
182 is effected by exercising rights under this License with respect to
183 the covered work, and you disclaim any intention to limit operation or
184 modification of the work as a means of enforcing, against the work's
185 users, your or third parties' legal rights to forbid circumvention of
186 technological measures.
187
188 4. Conveying Verbatim Copies.
189
190 You may convey verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you
191 receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
192 appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice;
193 keep intact all notices stating that this License and any
194 non-permissive terms added in accord with section 7 apply to the code;
195 keep intact all notices of the absence of any warranty; and give all
196 recipients a copy of this License along with the Program.
197
198 You may charge any price or no price for each copy that you convey,
199 and you may offer support or warranty protection for a fee.
200
201 5. Conveying Modified Source Versions.
202
203 You may convey a work based on the Program, or the modifications to
204 produce it from the Program, in the form of source code under the
205 terms of section 4, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
206
207 a) The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified
208 it, and giving a relevant date.
209
210 b) The work must carry prominent notices stating that it is
211 released under this License and any conditions added under section
212 7. This requirement modifies the requirement in section 4 to
213 "keep intact all notices".
214
215 c) You must license the entire work, as a whole, under this
216 License to anyone who comes into possession of a copy. This
217 License will therefore apply, along with any applicable section 7
218 additional terms, to the whole of the work, and all its parts,
219 regardless of how they are packaged. This License gives no
220 permission to license the work in any other way, but it does not
221 invalidate such permission if you have separately received it.
222
223 d) If the work has interactive user interfaces, each must display
224 Appropriate Legal Notices; however, if the Program has interactive
225 interfaces that do not display Appropriate Legal Notices, your
226 work need not make them do so.
227
228 A compilation of a covered work with other separate and independent
229 works, which are not by their nature extensions of the covered work,
230 and which are not combined with it such as to form a larger program,
231 in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an
232 "aggregate" if the compilation and its resulting copyright are not
233 used to limit the access or legal rights of the compilation's users
234 beyond what the individual works permit. Inclusion of a covered work
235 in an aggregate does not cause this License to apply to the other
236 parts of the aggregate.
237
238 6. Conveying Non-Source Forms.
239
240 You may convey a covered work in object code form under the terms
241 of sections 4 and 5, provided that you also convey the
242 machine-readable Corresponding Source under the terms of this License,
243 in one of these ways:
244
245 a) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
246 (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by the
247 Corresponding Source fixed on a durable physical medium
248 customarily used for software interchange.
249
250 b) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
251 (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by a
252 written offer, valid for at least three years and valid for as
253 long as you offer spare parts or customer support for that product
254 model, to give anyone who possesses the object code either (1) a
255 copy of the Corresponding Source for all the software in the
256 product that is covered by this License, on a durable physical
257 medium customarily used for software interchange, for a price no
258 more than your reasonable cost of physically performing this
259 conveying of source, or (2) access to copy the
260 Corresponding Source from a network server at no charge.
261
262 c) Convey individual copies of the object code with a copy of the
263 written offer to provide the Corresponding Source. This
264 alternative is allowed only occasionally and noncommercially, and
265 only if you received the object code with such an offer, in accord
266 with subsection 6b.
267
268 d) Convey the object code by offering access from a designated
269 place (gratis or for a charge), and offer equivalent access to the
270 Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no
271 further charge. You need not require recipients to copy the
272 Corresponding Source along with the object code. If the place to
273 copy the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source
274 may be on a different server (operated by you or a third party)
275 that supports equivalent copying facilities, provided you maintain
276 clear directions next to the object code saying where to find the
277 Corresponding Source. Regardless of what server hosts the
278 Corresponding Source, you remain obligated to ensure that it is
279 available for as long as needed to satisfy these requirements.
280
281 e) Convey the object code using peer-to-peer transmission, provided
282 you inform other peers where the object code and Corresponding
283 Source of the work are being offered to the general public at no
284 charge under subsection 6d.
285
286 A separable portion of the object code, whose source code is excluded
287 from the Corresponding Source as a System Library, need not be
288 included in conveying the object code work.
289
290 A "User Product" is either (1) a "consumer product", which means any
291 tangible personal property which is normally used for personal, family,
292 or household purposes, or (2) anything designed or sold for incorporation
293 into a dwelling. In determining whether a product is a consumer product,
294 doubtful cases shall be resolved in favor of coverage. For a particular
295 product received by a particular user, "normally used" refers to a
296 typical or common use of that class of product, regardless of the status
297 of the particular user or of the way in which the particular user
298 actually uses, or expects or is expected to use, the product. A product
299 is a consumer product regardless of whether the product has substantial
300 commercial, industrial or non-consumer uses, unless such uses represent
301 the only significant mode of use of the product.
302
303 "Installation Information" for a User Product means any methods,
304 procedures, authorization keys, or other information required to install
305 and execute modified versions of a covered work in that User Product from
306 a modified version of its Corresponding Source. The information must
307 suffice to ensure that the continued functioning of the modified object
308 code is in no case prevented or interfered with solely because
309 modification has been made.
310
311 If you convey an object code work under this section in, or with, or
312 specifically for use in, a User Product, and the conveying occurs as
313 part of a transaction in which the right of possession and use of the
314 User Product is transferred to the recipient in perpetuity or for a
315 fixed term (regardless of how the transaction is characterized), the
316 Corresponding Source conveyed under this section must be accompanied
317 by the Installation Information. But this requirement does not apply
318 if neither you nor any third party retains the ability to install
319 modified object code on the User Product (for example, the work has
320 been installed in ROM).
321
322 The requirement to provide Installation Information does not include a
323 requirement to continue to provide support service, warranty, or updates
324 for a work that has been modified or installed by the recipient, or for
325 the User Product in which it has been modified or installed. Access to a
326 network may be denied when the modification itself materially and
327 adversely affects the operation of the network or violates the rules and
328 protocols for communication across the network.
329
330 Corresponding Source conveyed, and Installation Information provided,
331 in accord with this section must be in a format that is publicly
332 documented (and with an implementation available to the public in
333 source code form), and must require no special password or key for
334 unpacking, reading or copying.
335
336 7. Additional Terms.
337
338 "Additional permissions" are terms that supplement the terms of this
339 License by making exceptions from one or more of its conditions.
340 Additional permissions that are applicable to the entire Program shall
341 be treated as though they were included in this License, to the extent
342 that they are valid under applicable law. If additional permissions
343 apply only to part of the Program, that part may be used separately
344 under those permissions, but the entire Program remains governed by
345 this License without regard to the additional permissions.
346
347 When you convey a copy of a covered work, you may at your option
348 remove any additional permissions from that copy, or from any part of
349 it. (Additional permissions may be written to require their own
350 removal in certain cases when you modify the work.) You may place
351 additional permissions on material, added by you to a covered work,
352 for which you have or can give appropriate copyright permission.
353
354 Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, for material you
355 add to a covered work, you may (if authorized by the copyright holders of
356 that material) supplement the terms of this License with terms:
357
358 a) Disclaiming warranty or limiting liability differently from the
359 terms of sections 15 and 16 of this License; or
360
361 b) Requiring preservation of specified reasonable legal notices or
362 author attributions in that material or in the Appropriate Legal
363 Notices displayed by works containing it; or
364
365 c) Prohibiting misrepresentation of the origin of that material, or
366 requiring that modified versions of such material be marked in
367 reasonable ways as different from the original version; or
368
369 d) Limiting the use for publicity purposes of names of licensors or
370 authors of the material; or
371
372 e) Declining to grant rights under trademark law for use of some
373 trade names, trademarks, or service marks; or
374
375 f) Requiring indemnification of licensors and authors of that
376 material by anyone who conveys the material (or modified versions of
377 it) with contractual assumptions of liability to the recipient, for
378 any liability that these contractual assumptions directly impose on
379 those licensors and authors.
380
381 All other non-permissive additional terms are considered "further
382 restrictions" within the meaning of section 10. If the Program as you
383 received it, or any part of it, contains a notice stating that it is
384 governed by this License along with a term that is a further restriction,
385 you may remove that term. If a license document contains a further
386 restriction but permits relicensing or conveying under this License, you
387 may add to a covered work material governed by the terms of that license
388 document, provided that the further restriction does not survive such
389 relicensing or conveying.
390
391 If you add terms to a covered work in accord with this section, you
392 must place, in the relevant source files, a statement of the
393 additional terms that apply to those files, or a notice indicating
394 where to find the applicable terms.
395
396 Additional terms, permissive or non-permissive, may be stated in the
397 form of a separately written license, or stated as exceptions;
398 the above requirements apply either way.
399
400 8. Termination.
401
402 You may not propagate or modify a covered work except as expressly
403 provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to propagate or
404 modify it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under
405 this License (including any patent licenses granted under the third
406 paragraph of section 11).
407
408 However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your
409 license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a)
410 provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and
411 finally terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright
412 holder fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means
413 prior to 60 days after the cessation.
414
415 Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is
416 reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the
417 violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you have
418 received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that
419 copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after
420 your receipt of the notice.
421
422 Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the
423 licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under
424 this License. If your rights have been terminated and not permanently
425 reinstated, you do not qualify to receive new licenses for the same
426 material under section 10.
427
428 9. Acceptance Not Required for Having Copies.
429
430 You are not required to accept this License in order to receive or
431 run a copy of the Program. Ancillary propagation of a covered work
432 occurring solely as a consequence of using peer-to-peer transmission
433 to receive a copy likewise does not require acceptance. However,
434 nothing other than this License grants you permission to propagate or
435 modify any covered work. These actions infringe copyright if you do
436 not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or propagating a
437 covered work, you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so.
438
439 10. Automatic Licensing of Downstream Recipients.
440
441 Each time you convey a covered work, the recipient automatically
442 receives a license from the original licensors, to run, modify and
443 propagate that work, subject to this License. You are not responsible
444 for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License.
445
446 An "entity transaction" is a transaction transferring control of an
447 organization, or substantially all assets of one, or subdividing an
448 organization, or merging organizations. If propagation of a covered
449 work results from an entity transaction, each party to that
450 transaction who receives a copy of the work also receives whatever
451 licenses to the work the party's predecessor in interest had or could
452 give under the previous paragraph, plus a right to possession of the
453 Corresponding Source of the work from the predecessor in interest, if
454 the predecessor has it or can get it with reasonable efforts.
455
456 You may not impose any further restrictions on the exercise of the
457 rights granted or affirmed under this License. For example, you may
458 not impose a license fee, royalty, or other charge for exercise of
459 rights granted under this License, and you may not initiate litigation
460 (including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that
461 any patent claim is infringed by making, using, selling, offering for
462 sale, or importing the Program or any portion of it.
463
464 11. Patents.
465
466 A "contributor" is a copyright holder who authorizes use under this
467 License of the Program or a work on which the Program is based. The
468 work thus licensed is called the contributor's "contributor version".
469
470 A contributor's "essential patent claims" are all patent claims
471 owned or controlled by the contributor, whether already acquired or
472 hereafter acquired, that would be infringed by some manner, permitted
473 by this License, of making, using, or selling its contributor version,
474 but do not include claims that would be infringed only as a
475 consequence of further modification of the contributor version. For
476 purposes of this definition, "control" includes the right to grant
477 patent sublicenses in a manner consistent with the requirements of
478 this License.
479
480 Each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free
481 patent license under the contributor's essential patent claims, to
482 make, use, sell, offer for sale, import and otherwise run, modify and
483 propagate the contents of its contributor version.
484
485 In the following three paragraphs, a "patent license" is any express
486 agreement or commitment, however denominated, not to enforce a patent
487 (such as an express permission to practice a patent or covenant not to
488 sue for patent infringement). To "grant" such a patent license to a
489 party means to make such an agreement or commitment not to enforce a
490 patent against the party.
491
492 If you convey a covered work, knowingly relying on a patent license,
493 and the Corresponding Source of the work is not available for anyone
494 to copy, free of charge and under the terms of this License, through a
495 publicly available network server or other readily accessible means,
496 then you must either (1) cause the Corresponding Source to be so
497 available, or (2) arrange to deprive yourself of the benefit of the
498 patent license for this particular work, or (3) arrange, in a manner
499 consistent with the requirements of this License, to extend the patent
500 license to downstream recipients. "Knowingly relying" means you have
501 actual knowledge that, but for the patent license, your conveying the
502 covered work in a country, or your recipient's use of the covered work
503 in a country, would infringe one or more identifiable patents in that
504 country that you have reason to believe are valid.
505
506 If, pursuant to or in connection with a single transaction or
507 arrangement, you convey, or propagate by procuring conveyance of, a
508 covered work, and grant a patent license to some of the parties
509 receiving the covered work authorizing them to use, propagate, modify
510 or convey a specific copy of the covered work, then the patent license
511 you grant is automatically extended to all recipients of the covered
512 work and works based on it.
513
514 A patent license is "discriminatory" if it does not include within
515 the scope of its coverage, prohibits the exercise of, or is
516 conditioned on the non-exercise of one or more of the rights that are
517 specifically granted under this License. You may not convey a covered
518 work if you are a party to an arrangement with a third party that is
519 in the business of distributing software, under which you make payment
520 to the third party based on the extent of your activity of conveying
521 the work, and under which the third party grants, to any of the
522 parties who would receive the covered work from you, a discriminatory
523 patent license (a) in connection with copies of the covered work
524 conveyed by you (or copies made from those copies), or (b) primarily
525 for and in connection with specific products or compilations that
526 contain the covered work, unless you entered into that arrangement,
527 or that patent license was granted, prior to 28 March 2007.
528
529 Nothing in this License shall be construed as excluding or limiting
530 any implied license or other defenses to infringement that may
531 otherwise be available to you under applicable patent law.
532
533 12. No Surrender of Others' Freedom.
534
535 If conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
536 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
537 excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot convey a
538 covered work so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
539 License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may
540 not convey it at all. For example, if you agree to terms that obligate you
541 to collect a royalty for further conveying from those to whom you convey
542 the Program, the only way you could satisfy both those terms and this
543 License would be to refrain entirely from conveying the Program.
544
545 13. Remote Network Interaction; Use with the GNU General Public License.
546
547 Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, if you modify the
548 Program, your modified version must prominently offer all users
549 interacting with it remotely through a computer network (if your version
550 supports such interaction) an opportunity to receive the Corresponding
551 Source of your version by providing access to the Corresponding Source
552 from a network server at no charge, through some standard or customary
553 means of facilitating copying of software. This Corresponding Source
554 shall include the Corresponding Source for any work covered by version 3
555 of the GNU General Public License that is incorporated pursuant to the
556 following paragraph.
557
558 Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, you have permission
559 to link or combine any covered work with a work licensed under version 3
560 of the GNU General Public License into a single combined work, and to
561 convey the resulting work. The terms of this License will continue to
562 apply to the part which is the covered work, but the work with which it is
563 combined will remain governed by version 3 of the GNU General Public
564 License.
565
566 14. Revised Versions of this License.
567
568 The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of
569 the GNU Affero General Public License from time to time. Such new
570 versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ
571 in detail to address new problems or concerns.
572
573 Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the
574 Program specifies that a certain numbered version of the GNU Affero
575 General Public License "or any later version" applies to it, you have
576 the option of following the terms and conditions either of that
577 numbered version or of any later version published by the Free
578 Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number
579 of the GNU Affero General Public License, you may choose any version
580 ever published by the Free Software Foundation.
581
582 If the Program specifies that a proxy can decide which future
583 versions of the GNU Affero General Public License can be used, that
584 proxy's public statement of acceptance of a version permanently
585 authorizes you to choose that version for the Program.
586
587 Later license versions may give you additional or different
588 permissions. However, no additional obligations are imposed on any
589 author or copyright holder as a result of your choosing to follow a
590 later version.
591
592 15. Disclaimer of Warranty.
593
594 THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY
595 APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT
596 HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY
597 OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO,
598 THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
599 PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM
600 IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF
601 ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
602
603 16. Limitation of Liability.
604
605 IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
606 WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MODIFIES AND/OR CONVEYS
607 THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY
608 GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE
609 USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF
610 DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD
611 PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS),
612 EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF
613 SUCH DAMAGES.
614
615 17. Interpretation of Sections 15 and 16.
616
617 If the disclaimer of warranty and limitation of liability provided
618 above cannot be given local legal effect according to their terms,
619 reviewing courts shall apply local law that most closely approximates
620 an absolute waiver of all civil liability in connection with the
621 Program, unless a warranty or assumption of liability accompanies a
622 copy of the Program in return for a fee.
623
624 END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
625
626 How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
627
628 If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
629 possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
630 free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
631
632 To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest
633 to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
634 state the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
635 the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
636
637 <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
638 Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>
639
640 This program is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify
641 it under the terms of the GNU Affero General Public License as
642 published by the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the
643 License, or (at your option) any later version.
644
645 This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
646 but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
647 MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the
648 GNU Affero General Public License for more details.
649
650 You should have received a copy of the GNU Affero General Public License
651 along with this program. If not, see <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>.
652
653 Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
654
655 If your software can interact with users remotely through a computer
656 network, you should also make sure that it provides a way for users to
657 get its source. For example, if your program is a web application, its
658 interface could display a "Source" link that leads users to an archive
659 of the code. There are many ways you could offer source, and different
660 solutions will be better for different programs; see section 13 for the
661 specific requirements.
662
663 You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or school,
664 if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if necessary.
