1 The Artistic License
2
3 Preamble
4
5 The intent of this document is to state the conditions under
6 which a Package may be copied, such that the Copyright Holder
7 maintains some semblance of artistic control over the
8 development of the package, while giving the users of the
9 package the right to use and distribute the Package in a
10 more-or-less customary fashion, plus the right to make
11 reasonable modifications.
12
13 Definitions:
14
15 "Package" refers to the collection of files distributed by
16 the Copyright Holder, and derivatives of that collection of
17 files created through textual modification.
18
19 "Standard Version" refers to such a Package if it has not
20 been modified, or has been modified in accordance with the
21 wishes of the Copyright Holder.
22
23 "Copyright Holder" is whoever is named in the copyright or
24 copyrights for the package.
25
26 "You" is you, if you're thinking about copying or
27 distributing this Package.
28
29 "Reasonable copying fee" is whatever you can justify on the
30 basis of media cost, duplication charges, time of people
31 involved, and so on. (You will not be required to justify it
32 to the Copyright Holder, but only to the computing community
33 at large as a market that must bear the fee.)
34
35 "Freely Available" means that no fee is charged for the item
36 itself, though there may be fees involved in handling the
37 item. It also means that recipients of the item may
38 redistribute it under the same conditions they received it.
39
40 1. You may make and give away verbatim copies of the source form
41 of the Standard Version of this Package without restriction,
42 provided that you duplicate all of the original copyright
43 notices and associated disclaimers.
44
45 2. You may apply bug fixes, portability fixes and other
46 modifications derived from the Public Domain or from the
47 Copyright Holder. A Package modified in such a way shall still
48 be considered the Standard Version.
49
50 3. You may otherwise modify your copy of this Package in any
51 way, provided that you insert a prominent notice in each changed
52 file stating how and when you changed that file, and provided
53 that you do at least ONE of the following:
54
55 a) place your modifications in the Public Domain or
56 otherwise make them Freely Available, such as by posting
57 said modifications to Usenet or an equivalent medium, or
58 placing the modifications on a major archive site such
59 as ftp.uu.net, or by allowing the Copyright Holder to
60 include your modifications in the Standard Version of
61 the Package.
62
63 b) use the modified Package only within your corporation
64 or organization.
65
66 c) rename any non-standard executables so the names do
67 not conflict with standard executables, which must also
68 be provided, and provide a separate manual page for each
69 non-standard executable that clearly documents how it
70 differs from the Standard Version.
71
72 d) make other distribution arrangements with the
73 Copyright Holder.
74
75 4. You may distribute the programs of this Package in object
76 code or executable form, provided that you do at least ONE of
77 the following:
78
79 a) distribute a Standard Version of the executables and
80 library files, together with instructions (in the manual
81 page or equivalent) on where to get the Standard
82 Version.
83
84 b) accompany the distribution with the machine-readable
85 source of the Package with your modifications.
86
87 c) accompany any non-standard executables with their
88 corresponding Standard Version executables, giving the
89 non-standard executables non-standard names, and clearly
90 documenting the differences in manual pages (or
91 equivalent), together with instructions on where to get
92 the Standard Version.
93
94 d) make other distribution arrangements with the
95 Copyright Holder.
96
97 5. You may charge a reasonable copying fee for any distribution
98 of this Package. You may charge any fee you choose for support
99 of this Package. You may not charge a fee for this Package
100 itself. However, you may distribute this Package in aggregate
101 with other (possibly commercial) programs as part of a larger
102 (possibly commercial) software distribution provided that you do
103 not advertise this Package as a product of your own.
104
105 6. The scripts and library files supplied as input to or
106 produced as output from the programs of this Package do not
107 automatically fall under the copyright of this Package, but
108 belong to whomever generated them, and may be sold commercially,
109 and may be aggregated with this Package.
110
111 7. C or perl subroutines supplied by you and linked into this
112 Package shall not be considered part of this Package.
113
114 8. The name of the Copyright Holder may not be used to endorse
115 or promote products derived from this software without specific
116 prior written permission.
117
118 9. THIS PACKAGE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS OR
119 IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED
120 WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTIBILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
121 PURPOSE.
