SNNS License and Copyright.
- This License Agreement applies to the SNNS program and all accompanying
programs and files that are distributed with a notice placed by the copyright
holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of the SNNS License. 'SNNS',
below, refers to any such program or work, and a 'work based on SNNS' means
either SNNS or any work containing SNNS or a portion of it, either verbatim
or with modifications. Each licensee is addressed as 'you'.
- You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of SNNS's source code as you
receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately
publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty;
keep intact all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence
of any warranty; and give any other recipients of SNNS a copy of this license
along with SNNS.
- You may modify your copy or copies of SNNS or any
portion of it only for your own use. You may not distribute modified
copies of SNNS. You may, however, distribute your modifications
as separate files (e.,g. patch files) along with the unmodified SNNS software.
We also encourage users to send changes and improvements which would benefit
many other users to us so that all users may receive these improvements in
a later version. The restriction not to distribute modified copies is also
useful to prevent bug reports from someone else's modifications.
- If you distribute copies of SNNS you may not charge anything except the
cost for the media and a fair estimate of the costs of computer time or network
time directly attributable to the copying.
- You may not copy, modify, sublicense, distribute or transfer SNNS except
as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify,
sublicense, distribute or transfer SNNS is void, and will automatically terminate
your rights to use SNNS under this License. However, parties who have received
copies, or rights to use copies, from you under this License will not have
their licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
- By copying, distributing or modifying SNNS (or any
work based on SNNS) you indicate your acceptance of this license to
do so, and all its terms and conditions.
- Each time you redistribute SNNS (or any work based on SNNS), the recipient
automatically receives a license from the original licensor to copy, distribute
or modify SNNS subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose any
further restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
- Incorporation of SNNS or parts of it in commercial programs requires a special
agreement between the copyright holder and the Licensee in writing and ususally
involves the payment of license fees. If you want to incorporate SNNS or parts
of it in commercial programs write to the author about further details.
- Because SNNS is licensed free of charge, there is no warranty for SNNS,
to the extent permitted by applicable law. The copyright holders and/or other
parties provide SNNS 'as is' without warranty of any kind, either expressed
or implied, including, but not limited to, the implied warranties of merchantability
and fitness for a particular purpose. The entire risk as to the quality and
performance of SNNS is with you. Should the program prove defective, you assume
the cost of all necessary servicing, repair or correction.
- In no event will any copyright holder, or any other party who may redistribute
SNNS as permitted above, be liable to you for damages, including any general,
special, incidental or consequential damages arising out of the use or inability
to use SNNS (including but not limited to loss of data or data being rendered
inaccurate or losses sustained by you or third parties or a failure of SNNS
to operate with any other programs), even if such holder or other party has
been advised of the possibility of such damages.
