21 GNU AFFERO GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
22 Version 3, 19 November 2007
23
24 Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc. <http://fsf.org/>
25 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
26 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
27
28 Preamble
29
30 The GNU Affero General Public License is a free, copyleft license for
31 software and other kinds of works, specifically designed to ensure
32 cooperation with the community in the case of network server software.
33
34 The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed
35 to take away your freedom to share and change the works. By contrast,
36 our General Public Licenses are intended to guarantee your freedom to
37 share and change all versions of a program--to make sure it remains free
38 software for all its users.
39
40 When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
41 price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
42 have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
43 them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you
44 want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new
45 free programs, and that you know you can do these things.
46
47 Developers that use our General Public Licenses protect your rights
48 with two steps: (1) assert copyright on the software, and (2) offer
49 you this License which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute
50 and/or modify the software.
51
52 A secondary benefit of defending all users' freedom is that
53 improvements made in alternate versions of the program, if they
54 receive widespread use, become available for other developers to
55 incorporate. Many developers of free software are heartened and
56 encouraged by the resulting cooperation. However, in the case of
57 software used on network servers, this result may fail to come about.
58 The GNU General Public License permits making a modified version and
59 letting the public access it on a server without ever releasing its
60 source code to the public.
61
62 The GNU Affero General Public License is designed specifically to
63 ensure that, in such cases, the modified source code becomes available
64 to the community. It requires the operator of a network server to
65 provide the source code of the modified version running there to the
66 users of that server. Therefore, public use of a modified version, on
67 a publicly accessible server, gives the public access to the source
68 code of the modified version.
69
70 An older license, called the Affero General Public License and
71 published by Affero, was designed to accomplish similar goals. This is
72 a different license, not a version of the Affero GPL, but Affero has
73 released a new version of the Affero GPL which permits relicensing under
74 this license.
75
76 The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
77 modification follow.
78
79 TERMS AND CONDITIONS
80
81 0. Definitions.
82
83 "This License" refers to version 3 of the GNU Affero General Public License.
84
85 "Copyright" also means copyright-like laws that apply to other kinds of
86 works, such as semiconductor masks.
87
88 "The Program" refers to any copyrightable work licensed under this
89 License. Each licensee is addressed as "you". "Licensees" and
90 "recipients" may be individuals or organizations.
91
92 To "modify" a work means to copy from or adapt all or part of the work
93 in a fashion requiring copyright permission, other than the making of an
94 exact copy. The resulting work is called a "modified version" of the
95 earlier work or a work "based on" the earlier work.
96
97 A "covered work" means either the unmodified Program or a work based
98 on the Program.
99
100 To "propagate" a work means to do anything with it that, without
101 permission, would make you directly or secondarily liable for
102 infringement under applicable copyright law, except executing it on a
103 computer or modifying a private copy. Propagation includes copying,
104 distribution (with or without modification), making available to the
105 public, and in some countries other activities as well.
106
107 To "convey" a work means any kind of propagation that enables other
108 parties to make or receive copies. Mere interaction with a user through
109 a computer network, with no transfer of a copy, is not conveying.
110
111 An interactive user interface displays "Appropriate Legal Notices"
112 to the extent that it includes a convenient and prominently visible
113 feature that (1) displays an appropriate copyright notice, and (2)
114 tells the user that there is no warranty for the work (except to the
115 extent that warranties are provided), that licensees may convey the
116 work under this License, and how to view a copy of this License. If
117 the interface presents a list of user commands or options, such as a
118 menu, a prominent item in the list meets this criterion.
119
120 1. Source Code.
121
122 The "source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work
123 for making modifications to it. "Object code" means any non-source
124 form of a work.
125
126 A "Standard Interface" means an interface that either is an official
127 standard defined by a recognized standards body, or, in the case of
128 interfaces specified for a particular programming language, one that
129 is widely used among developers working in that language.
130
131 The "System Libraries" of an executable work include anything, other
132 than the work as a whole, that (a) is included in the normal form of
133 packaging a Major Component, but which is not part of that Major
134 Component, and (b) serves only to enable use of the work with that
135 Major Component, or to implement a Standard Interface for which an
136 implementation is available to the public in source code form. A
137 "Major Component", in this context, means a major essential component
138 (kernel, window system, and so on) of the specific operating system
139 (if any) on which the executable work runs, or a compiler used to
140 produce the work, or an object code interpreter used to run it.
141
142 The "Corresponding Source" for a work in object code form means all
143 the source code needed to generate, install, and (for an executable
144 work) run the object code and to modify the work, including scripts to
145 control those activities. However, it does not include the work's
146 System Libraries, or general-purpose tools or generally available free
147 programs which are used unmodified in performing those activities but
148 which are not part of the work. For example, Corresponding Source
149 includes interface definition files associated with source files for
150 the work, and the source code for shared libraries and dynamically
151 linked subprograms that the work is specifically designed to require,
152 such as by intimate data communication or control flow between those
153 subprograms and other parts of the work.
154
155 The Corresponding Source need not include anything that users
156 can regenerate automatically from other parts of the Corresponding
157 Source.
158
159 The Corresponding Source for a work in source code form is that
160 same work.
161
162 2. Basic Permissions.
163
164 All rights granted under this License are granted for the term of
165 copyright on the Program, and are irrevocable provided the stated
166 conditions are met. This License explicitly affirms your unlimited
167 permission to run the unmodified Program. The output from running a
168 covered work is covered by this License only if the output, given its
169 content, constitutes a covered work. This License acknowledges your
170 rights of fair use or other equivalent, as provided by copyright law.
171
172 You may make, run and propagate covered works that you do not
173 convey, without conditions so long as your license otherwise remains
174 in force. You may convey covered works to others for the sole purpose
175 of having them make modifications exclusively for you, or provide you
176 with facilities for running those works, provided that you comply with
177 the terms of this License in conveying all material for which you do
178 not control copyright. Those thus making or running the covered works
179 for you must do so exclusively on your behalf, under your direction
180 and control, on terms that prohibit them from making any copies of
181 your copyrighted material outside their relationship with you.
182
183 Conveying under any other circumstances is permitted solely under
184 the conditions stated below. Sublicensing is not allowed; section 10
185 makes it unnecessary.
186
187 3. Protecting Users' Legal Rights From Anti-Circumvention Law.
188
189 No covered work shall be deemed part of an effective technological
190 measure under any applicable law fulfilling obligations under article
191 11 of the WIPO copyright treaty adopted on 20 December 1996, or
192 similar laws prohibiting or restricting circumvention of such
193 measures.
194
195 When you convey a covered work, you waive any legal power to forbid
196 circumvention of technological measures to the extent such circumvention
197 is effected by exercising rights under this License with respect to
198 the covered work, and you disclaim any intention to limit operation or
199 modification of the work as a means of enforcing, against the work's
200 users, your or third parties' legal rights to forbid circumvention of
201 technological measures.
202
203 4. Conveying Verbatim Copies.
204
205 You may convey verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you
206 receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
207 appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice;
208 keep intact all notices stating that this License and any
209 non-permissive terms added in accord with section 7 apply to the code;
210 keep intact all notices of the absence of any warranty; and give all
211 recipients a copy of this License along with the Program.
212
213 You may charge any price or no price for each copy that you convey,
214 and you may offer support or warranty protection for a fee.
215
216 5. Conveying Modified Source Versions.
217
218 You may convey a work based on the Program, or the modifications to
219 produce it from the Program, in the form of source code under the
220 terms of section 4, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
221
222 a) The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified
223 it, and giving a relevant date.
224
225 b) The work must carry prominent notices stating that it is
226 released under this License and any conditions added under section
227 7. This requirement modifies the requirement in section 4 to
228 "keep intact all notices".
229
230 c) You must license the entire work, as a whole, under this
231 License to anyone who comes into possession of a copy. This
232 License will therefore apply, along with any applicable section 7
233 additional terms, to the whole of the work, and all its parts,
234 regardless of how they are packaged. This License gives no
235 permission to license the work in any other way, but it does not
236 invalidate such permission if you have separately received it.
237
238 d) If the work has interactive user interfaces, each must display
239 Appropriate Legal Notices; however, if the Program has interactive
240 interfaces that do not display Appropriate Legal Notices, your
241 work need not make them do so.
242
243 A compilation of a covered work with other separate and independent
244 works, which are not by their nature extensions of the covered work,
245 and which are not combined with it such as to form a larger program,
246 in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an
247 "aggregate" if the compilation and its resulting copyright are not
248 used to limit the access or legal rights of the compilation's users
249 beyond what the individual works permit. Inclusion of a covered work
250 in an aggregate does not cause this License to apply to the other
251 parts of the aggregate.
252
253 6. Conveying Non-Source Forms.
254
255 You may convey a covered work in object code form under the terms
256 of sections 4 and 5, provided that you also convey the
257 machine-readable Corresponding Source under the terms of this License,
258 in one of these ways:
259
260 a) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
261 (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by the
262 Corresponding Source fixed on a durable physical medium
263 customarily used for software interchange.
264
265 b) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
266 (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by a
267 written offer, valid for at least three years and valid for as
268 long as you offer spare parts or customer support for that product
269 model, to give anyone who possesses the object code either (1) a
270 copy of the Corresponding Source for all the software in the
271 product that is covered by this License, on a durable physical
272 medium customarily used for software interchange, for a price no
273 more than your reasonable cost of physically performing this
274 conveying of source, or (2) access to copy the
275 Corresponding Source from a network server at no charge.
276
277 c) Convey individual copies of the object code with a copy of the
278 written offer to provide the Corresponding Source. This
279 alternative is allowed only occasionally and noncommercially, and
280 only if you received the object code with such an offer, in accord
281 with subsection 6b.
282
283 d) Convey the object code by offering access from a designated
284 place (gratis or for a charge), and offer equivalent access to the
285 Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no
286 further charge. You need not require recipients to copy the
287 Corresponding Source along with the object code. If the place to
288 copy the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source
289 may be on a different server (operated by you or a third party)
290 that supports equivalent copying facilities, provided you maintain
291 clear directions next to the object code saying where to find the
292 Corresponding Source. Regardless of what server hosts the
293 Corresponding Source, you remain obligated to ensure that it is
294 available for as long as needed to satisfy these requirements.
295
296 e) Convey the object code using peer-to-peer transmission, provided
297 you inform other peers where the object code and Corresponding
298 Source of the work are being offered to the general public at no
299 charge under subsection 6d.
300
301 A separable portion of the object code, whose source code is excluded
302 from the Corresponding Source as a System Library, need not be
303 included in conveying the object code work.
304
305 A "User Product" is either (1) a "consumer product", which means any
306 tangible personal property which is normally used for personal, family,
307 or household purposes, or (2) anything designed or sold for incorporation
308 into a dwelling. In determining whether a product is a consumer product,
309 doubtful cases shall be resolved in favor of coverage. For a particular
310 product received by a particular user, "normally used" refers to a
311 typical or common use of that class of product, regardless of the status
312 of the particular user or of the way in which the particular user
313 actually uses, or expects or is expected to use, the product. A product
314 is a consumer product regardless of whether the product has substantial
315 commercial, industrial or non-consumer uses, unless such uses represent
316 the only significant mode of use of the product.
317
318 "Installation Information" for a User Product means any methods,
319 procedures, authorization keys, or other information required to install
320 and execute modified versions of a covered work in that User Product from
321 a modified version of its Corresponding Source. The information must
322 suffice to ensure that the continued functioning of the modified object
323 code is in no case prevented or interfered with solely because
324 modification has been made.
325
326 If you convey an object code work under this section in, or with, or
327 specifically for use in, a User Product, and the conveying occurs as
328 part of a transaction in which the right of possession and use of the
329 User Product is transferred to the recipient in perpetuity or for a
330 fixed term (regardless of how the transaction is characterized), the
331 Corresponding Source conveyed under this section must be accompanied
332 by the Installation Information. But this requirement does not apply
333 if neither you nor any third party retains the ability to install
334 modified object code on the User Product (for example, the work has
335 been installed in ROM).
336
337 The requirement to provide Installation Information does not include a
338 requirement to continue to provide support service, warranty, or updates
339 for a work that has been modified or installed by the recipient, or for
340 the User Product in which it has been modified or installed. Access to a
341 network may be denied when the modification itself materially and
342 adversely affects the operation of the network or violates the rules and
343 protocols for communication across the network.
344
345 Corresponding Source conveyed, and Installation Information provided,
346 in accord with this section must be in a format that is publicly
347 documented (and with an implementation available to the public in
348 source code form), and must require no special password or key for
349 unpacking, reading or copying.
350
351 7. Additional Terms.
352
353 "Additional permissions" are terms that supplement the terms of this
354 License by making exceptions from one or more of its conditions.
355 Additional permissions that are applicable to the entire Program shall
356 be treated as though they were included in this License, to the extent
357 that they are valid under applicable law. If additional permissions
358 apply only to part of the Program, that part may be used separately
359 under those permissions, but the entire Program remains governed by
360 this License without regard to the additional permissions.
361
362 When you convey a copy of a covered work, you may at your option
363 remove any additional permissions from that copy, or from any part of
364 it. (Additional permissions may be written to require their own
365 removal in certain cases when you modify the work.) You may place
366 additional permissions on material, added by you to a covered work,
367 for which you have or can give appropriate copyright permission.
368
369 Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, for material you
370 add to a covered work, you may (if authorized by the copyright holders of
371 that material) supplement the terms of this License with terms:
372
373 a) Disclaiming warranty or limiting liability differently from the
374 terms of sections 15 and 16 of this License; or
375
376 b) Requiring preservation of specified reasonable legal notices or
377 author attributions in that material or in the Appropriate Legal
378 Notices displayed by works containing it; or
379
380 c) Prohibiting misrepresentation of the origin of that material, or
381 requiring that modified versions of such material be marked in
382 reasonable ways as different from the original version; or
383
384 d) Limiting the use for publicity purposes of names of licensors or
385 authors of the material; or
386
387 e) Declining to grant rights under trademark law for use of some
388 trade names, trademarks, or service marks; or
389
390 f) Requiring indemnification of licensors and authors of that
391 material by anyone who conveys the material (or modified versions of
392 it) with contractual assumptions of liability to the recipient, for
393 any liability that these contractual assumptions directly impose on
394 those licensors and authors.
395
396 All other non-permissive additional terms are considered "further
397 restrictions" within the meaning of section 10. If the Program as you
398 received it, or any part of it, contains a notice stating that it is
399 governed by this License along with a term that is a further
400 restriction, you may remove that term. If a license document contains
401 a further restriction but permits relicensing or conveying under this
402 License, you may add to a covered work material governed by the terms
403 of that license document, provided that the further restriction does
404 not survive such relicensing or conveying.
405
406 If you add terms to a covered work in accord with this section, you
407 must place, in the relevant source files, a statement of the
408 additional terms that apply to those files, or a notice indicating
409 where to find the applicable terms.
410
411 Additional terms, permissive or non-permissive, may be stated in the
412 form of a separately written license, or stated as exceptions;
413 the above requirements apply either way.
414
415 8. Termination.
416
417 You may not propagate or modify a covered work except as expressly
418 provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to propagate or
419 modify it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under
420 this License (including any patent licenses granted under the third
421 paragraph of section 11).
422
423 However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your
424 license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a)
425 provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and
426 finally terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright
427 holder fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means
428 prior to 60 days after the cessation.
429
430 Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is
431 reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the
432 violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you have
433 received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that
434 copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after
435 your receipt of the notice.
436
437 Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the
438 licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under
439 this License. If your rights have been terminated and not permanently
440 reinstated, you do not qualify to receive new licenses for the same
441 material under section 10.
442
443 9. Acceptance Not Required for Having Copies.
444
445 You are not required to accept this License in order to receive or
446 run a copy of the Program. Ancillary propagation of a covered work
447 occurring solely as a consequence of using peer-to-peer transmission
448 to receive a copy likewise does not require acceptance. However,
449 nothing other than this License grants you permission to propagate or
450 modify any covered work. These actions infringe copyright if you do
451 not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or propagating a
452 covered work, you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so.
453
454 10. Automatic Licensing of Downstream Recipients.
455
456 Each time you convey a covered work, the recipient automatically
457 receives a license from the original licensors, to run, modify and
458 propagate that work, subject to this License. You are not responsible
459 for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License.
460
461 An "entity transaction" is a transaction transferring control of an
462 organization, or substantially all assets of one, or subdividing an
463 organization, or merging organizations. If propagation of a covered
464 work results from an entity transaction, each party to that
465 transaction who receives a copy of the work also receives whatever
466 licenses to the work the party's predecessor in interest had or could
467 give under the previous paragraph, plus a right to possession of the
468 Corresponding Source of the work from the predecessor in interest, if
469 the predecessor has it or can get it with reasonable efforts.
470
471 You may not impose any further restrictions on the exercise of the
472 rights granted or affirmed under this License. For example, you may
473 not impose a license fee, royalty, or other charge for exercise of
474 rights granted under this License, and you may not initiate litigation
475 (including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that
476 any patent claim is infringed by making, using, selling, offering for
477 sale, or importing the Program or any portion of it.
478
479 11. Patents.
480
481 A "contributor" is a copyright holder who authorizes use under this
482 License of the Program or a work on which the Program is based. The
483 work thus licensed is called the contributor's "contributor version".
484
485 A contributor's "essential patent claims" are all patent claims
486 owned or controlled by the contributor, whether already acquired or
487 hereafter acquired, that would be infringed by some manner, permitted
488 by this License, of making, using, or selling its contributor version,
489 but do not include claims that would be infringed only as a
490 consequence of further modification of the contributor version. For
491 purposes of this definition, "control" includes the right to grant
492 patent sublicenses in a manner consistent with the requirements of
493 this License.
494
495 Each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free
496 patent license under the contributor's essential patent claims, to
497 make, use, sell, offer for sale, import and otherwise run, modify and
498 propagate the contents of its contributor version.
499
500 In the following three paragraphs, a "patent license" is any express
501 agreement or commitment, however denominated, not to enforce a patent
502 (such as an express permission to practice a patent or covenant not to
503 sue for patent infringement). To "grant" such a patent license to a
504 party means to make such an agreement or commitment not to enforce a
505 patent against the party.
506
507 If you convey a covered work, knowingly relying on a patent license,
508 and the Corresponding Source of the work is not available for anyone
509 to copy, free of charge and under the terms of this License, through a
510 publicly available network server or other readily accessible means,
511 then you must either (1) cause the Corresponding Source to be so
512 available, or (2) arrange to deprive yourself of the benefit of the
513 patent license for this particular work, or (3) arrange, in a manner
514 consistent with the requirements of this License, to extend the patent
515 license to downstream recipients. "Knowingly relying" means you have
516 actual knowledge that, but for the patent license, your conveying the
517 covered work in a country, or your recipient's use of the covered work
518 in a country, would infringe one or more identifiable patents in that
519 country that you have reason to believe are valid.
520
521 If, pursuant to or in connection with a single transaction or
522 arrangement, you convey, or propagate by procuring conveyance of, a
523 covered work, and grant a patent license to some of the parties
524 receiving the covered work authorizing them to use, propagate, modify
525 or convey a specific copy of the covered work, then the patent license
526 you grant is automatically extended to all recipients of the covered
527 work and works based on it.
528
529 A patent license is "discriminatory" if it does not include within
530 the scope of its coverage, prohibits the exercise of, or is
531 conditioned on the non-exercise of one or more of the rights that are
532 specifically granted under this License. You may not convey a covered
533 work if you are a party to an arrangement with a third party that is
534 in the business of distributing software, under which you make payment
535 to the third party based on the extent of your activity of conveying
536 the work, and under which the third party grants, to any of the
537 parties who would receive the covered work from you, a discriminatory
538 patent license (a) in connection with copies of the covered work
539 conveyed by you (or copies made from those copies), or (b) primarily
540 for and in connection with specific products or compilations that
541 contain the covered work, unless you entered into that arrangement,
542 or that patent license was granted, prior to 28 March 2007.
543
544 Nothing in this License shall be construed as excluding or limiting
545 any implied license or other defenses to infringement that may
546 otherwise be available to you under applicable patent law.
547
548 12. No Surrender of Others' Freedom.
549
550 If conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
551 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
552 excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot convey a
553 covered work so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
554 License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may
555 not convey it at all. For example, if you agree to terms that obligate you
556 to collect a royalty for further conveying from those to whom you convey
557 the Program, the only way you could satisfy both those terms and this
558 License would be to refrain entirely from conveying the Program.
559
560 13. Remote Network Interaction; Use with the GNU General Public License.
561
562 Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, if you modify the
563 Program, your modified version must prominently offer all users
564 interacting with it remotely through a computer network (if your version
565 supports such interaction) an opportunity to receive the Corresponding
566 Source of your version by providing access to the Corresponding Source
567 from a network server at no charge, through some standard or customary
568 means of facilitating copying of software. This Corresponding Source
569 shall include the Corresponding Source for any work covered by version 3
570 of the GNU General Public License that is incorporated pursuant to the
571 following paragraph.
572
573 Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, you have
574 permission to link or combine any covered work with a work licensed
575 under version 3 of the GNU General Public License into a single
576 combined work, and to convey the resulting work. The terms of this
577 License will continue to apply to the part which is the covered work,
578 but the work with which it is combined will remain governed by version
579 3 of the GNU General Public License.
580
581 14. Revised Versions of this License.
582
583 The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of
584 the GNU Affero General Public License from time to time. Such new versions
585 will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
586 address new problems or concerns.
587
588 Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the
589 Program specifies that a certain numbered version of the GNU Affero General
590 Public License "or any later version" applies to it, you have the
591 option of following the terms and conditions either of that numbered
592 version or of any later version published by the Free Software
593 Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of the
594 GNU Affero General Public License, you may choose any version ever published
595 by the Free Software Foundation.
596
597 If the Program specifies that a proxy can decide which future
598 versions of the GNU Affero General Public License can be used, that proxy's
599 public statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you
600 to choose that version for the Program.
601
602 Later license versions may give you additional or different
603 permissions. However, no additional obligations are imposed on any
604 author or copyright holder as a result of your choosing to follow a
605 later version.
606
607 15. Disclaimer of Warranty.
608
609 THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY
610 APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT
611 HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY
612 OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO,
613 THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
614 PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM
615 IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF
616 ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
617
618 16. Limitation of Liability.
619
620 IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
621 WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MODIFIES AND/OR CONVEYS
622 THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY
623 GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE
624 USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF
625 DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD
626 PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS),
627 EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF
628 SUCH DAMAGES.
629
630 17. Interpretation of Sections 15 and 16.
631
632 If the disclaimer of warranty and limitation of liability provided
633 above cannot be given local legal effect according to their terms,
634 reviewing courts shall apply local law that most closely approximates
635 an absolute waiver of all civil liability in connection with the
636 Program, unless a warranty or assumption of liability accompanies a
637 copy of the Program in return for a fee.
638
639 END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
640
641 How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
642
643 If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
644 possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
645 free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
646
647 To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest
648 to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
649 state the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
650 the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
651
652 <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
653 Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>
654
655 This program is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify
656 it under the terms of the GNU Affero General Public License as published by
657 the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or
658 (at your option) any later version.
659
660 This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
661 but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
662 MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. See the
663 GNU Affero General Public License for more details.
664
665 You should have received a copy of the GNU Affero General Public License
666 along with this program. If not, see <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>.
667
668 Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
669
670 If your software can interact with users remotely through a computer
671 network, you should also make sure that it provides a way for users to
672 get its source. For example, if your program is a web application, its
673 interface could display a "Source" link that leads users to an archive
674 of the code. There are many ways you could offer source, and different
675 solutions will be better for different programs; see section 13 for the
676 specific requirements.
677
678 You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or school,
679 if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if necessary.
