19 Preamble
20
21 The GNU General Public License is a free, copyleft license for
22 software and other kinds of works.

24 The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed
25 to take away your freedom to share and change the works. By contrast,
26 the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to
27 share and change all versions of a program--to make sure it remains free
28 software for all its users. We, the Free Software Foundation, use the
29 GNU General Public License for most of our software; it applies also to
30 any other work released this way by its authors. You can apply it to
b21a55b @OpenCFD initial commit for version 1.6.x patch release
authored
31 your programs, too.
32
33 When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
34 price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
35 have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
fefc665 STYLE: Updated License to GPL v3
andy authored
36 them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you
37 want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new
38 free programs, and that you know you can do these things.

40 To protect your rights, we need to prevent others from denying you
41 these rights or asking you to surrender the rights. Therefore, you have
42 certain responsibilities if you distribute copies of the software, or if
43 you modify it: responsibilities to respect the freedom of others.

45 For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
fefc665 STYLE: Updated License to GPL v3

46 gratis or for a fee, you must pass on to the recipients the same
47 freedoms that you received. You must make sure that they, too, receive
48 or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they
49 know their rights.
50
51 Developers that use the GNU GPL protect your rights with two steps:
52 (1) assert copyright on the software, and (2) offer you this License
53 giving you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify it.
54
55 For the developers' and authors' protection, the GPL clearly explains
56 that there is no warranty for this free software. For both users' and
57 authors' sake, the GPL requires that modified versions be marked as
58 changed, so that their problems will not be attributed erroneously to
59 authors of previous versions.
60
61 Some devices are designed to deny users access to install or run
62 modified versions of the software inside them, although the manufacturer
63 can do so. This is fundamentally incompatible with the aim of
64 protecting users' freedom to change the software. The systematic
65 pattern of such abuse occurs in the area of products for individuals to
66 use, which is precisely where it is most unacceptable. Therefore, we
67 have designed this version of the GPL to prohibit the practice for those
68 products. If such problems arise substantially in other domains, we
69 stand ready to extend this provision to those domains in future versions
70 of the GPL, as needed to protect the freedom of users.
71
72 Finally, every program is threatened constantly by software patents.
73 States should not allow patents to restrict development and use of
74 software on general-purpose computers, but in those that do, we wish to
75 avoid the special danger that patents applied to a free program could
76 make it effectively proprietary. To prevent this, the GPL assures that
77 patents cannot be used to render the program non-free.

81
82 TERMS AND CONDITIONS
83
84 0. Definitions.
85
86 "This License" refers to version 3 of the GNU General Public License.
87
88 "Copyright" also means copyright-like laws that apply to other kinds of
89 works, such as semiconductor masks.
90
91 "The Program" refers to any copyrightable work licensed under this
92 License. Each licensee is addressed as "you". "Licensees" and
93 "recipients" may be individuals or organizations.
94
95 To "modify" a work means to copy from or adapt all or part of the work
96 in a fashion requiring copyright permission, other than the making of an
97 exact copy. The resulting work is called a "modified version" of the
98 earlier work or a work "based on" the earlier work.
99
100 A "covered work" means either the unmodified Program or a work based
101 on the Program.
102
103 To "propagate" a work means to do anything with it that, without
104 permission, would make you directly or secondarily liable for
105 infringement under applicable copyright law, except executing it on a
106 computer or modifying a private copy. Propagation includes copying,
107 distribution (with or without modification), making available to the
108 public, and in some countries other activities as well.
109
110 To "convey" a work means any kind of propagation that enables other
111 parties to make or receive copies. Mere interaction with a user through
112 a computer network, with no transfer of a copy, is not conveying.
113
114 An interactive user interface displays "Appropriate Legal Notices"
115 to the extent that it includes a convenient and prominently visible
116 feature that (1) displays an appropriate copyright notice, and (2)
117 tells the user that there is no warranty for the work (except to the
118 extent that warranties are provided), that licensees may convey the
119 work under this License, and how to view a copy of this License. If
120 the interface presents a list of user commands or options, such as a
121 menu, a prominent item in the list meets this criterion.
122
123 1. Source Code.
124
125 The "source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work
126 for making modifications to it. "Object code" means any non-source
127 form of a work.
128
129 A "Standard Interface" means an interface that either is an official
130 standard defined by a recognized standards body, or, in the case of
131 interfaces specified for a particular programming language, one that
132 is widely used among developers working in that language.
133
134 The "System Libraries" of an executable work include anything, other
135 than the work as a whole, that (a) is included in the normal form of
136 packaging a Major Component, but which is not part of that Major
137 Component, and (b) serves only to enable use of the work with that
138 Major Component, or to implement a Standard Interface for which an
139 implementation is available to the public in source code form. A
140 "Major Component", in this context, means a major essential component
141 (kernel, window system, and so on) of the specific operating system
142 (if any) on which the executable work runs, or a compiler used to
143 produce the work, or an object code interpreter used to run it.
144
145 The "Corresponding Source" for a work in object code form means all
146 the source code needed to generate, install, and (for an executable
147 work) run the object code and to modify the work, including scripts to
148 control those activities. However, it does not include the work's
149 System Libraries, or general-purpose tools or generally available free
150 programs which are used unmodified in performing those activities but
151 which are not part of the work. For example, Corresponding Source
152 includes interface definition files associated with source files for
153 the work, and the source code for shared libraries and dynamically
154 linked subprograms that the work is specifically designed to require,
155 such as by intimate data communication or control flow between those
156 subprograms and other parts of the work.
157
158 The Corresponding Source need not include anything that users
159 can regenerate automatically from other parts of the Corresponding
160 Source.
161
162 The Corresponding Source for a work in source code form is that
163 same work.
164
165 2. Basic Permissions.
166
167 All rights granted under this License are granted for the term of
168 copyright on the Program, and are irrevocable provided the stated
169 conditions are met. This License explicitly affirms your unlimited
170 permission to run the unmodified Program. The output from running a
171 covered work is covered by this License only if the output, given its
172 content, constitutes a covered work. This License acknowledges your
173 rights of fair use or other equivalent, as provided by copyright law.
174
175 You may make, run and propagate covered works that you do not
176 convey, without conditions so long as your license otherwise remains
177 in force. You may convey covered works to others for the sole purpose
178 of having them make modifications exclusively for you, or provide you
179 with facilities for running those works, provided that you comply with
180 the terms of this License in conveying all material for which you do
181 not control copyright. Those thus making or running the covered works
182 for you must do so exclusively on your behalf, under your direction
183 and control, on terms that prohibit them from making any copies of
184 your copyrighted material outside their relationship with you.
185
186 Conveying under any other circumstances is permitted solely under
187 the conditions stated below. Sublicensing is not allowed; section 10
188 makes it unnecessary.
189
190 3. Protecting Users' Legal Rights From Anti-Circumvention Law.
191
192 No covered work shall be deemed part of an effective technological
193 measure under any applicable law fulfilling obligations under article
194 11 of the WIPO copyright treaty adopted on 20 December 1996, or
195 similar laws prohibiting or restricting circumvention of such
196 measures.
197
198 When you convey a covered work, you waive any legal power to forbid
199 circumvention of technological measures to the extent such circumvention
200 is effected by exercising rights under this License with respect to
201 the covered work, and you disclaim any intention to limit operation or
202 modification of the work as a means of enforcing, against the work's
203 users, your or third parties' legal rights to forbid circumvention of
204 technological measures.
205
206 4. Conveying Verbatim Copies.
207
208 You may convey verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you
209 receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
210 appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice;
211 keep intact all notices stating that this License and any
212 non-permissive terms added in accord with section 7 apply to the code;
213 keep intact all notices of the absence of any warranty; and give all
214 recipients a copy of this License along with the Program.
215
216 You may charge any price or no price for each copy that you convey,
217 and you may offer support or warranty protection for a fee.
218
219 5. Conveying Modified Source Versions.
220
221 You may convey a work based on the Program, or the modifications to
222 produce it from the Program, in the form of source code under the
223 terms of section 4, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
224
225 a) The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified
226 it, and giving a relevant date.
227
228 b) The work must carry prominent notices stating that it is
229 released under this License and any conditions added under section
230 7. This requirement modifies the requirement in section 4 to
231 "keep intact all notices".
232
233 c) You must license the entire work, as a whole, under this
234 License to anyone who comes into possession of a copy. This
235 License will therefore apply, along with any applicable section 7
236 additional terms, to the whole of the work, and all its parts,
237 regardless of how they are packaged. This License gives no
238 permission to license the work in any other way, but it does not
239 invalidate such permission if you have separately received it.
240
241 d) If the work has interactive user interfaces, each must display
242 Appropriate Legal Notices; however, if the Program has interactive
243 interfaces that do not display Appropriate Legal Notices, your
244 work need not make them do so.
245
246 A compilation of a covered work with other separate and independent
247 works, which are not by their nature extensions of the covered work,
248 and which are not combined with it such as to form a larger program,
249 in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an
250 "aggregate" if the compilation and its resulting copyright are not
251 used to limit the access or legal rights of the compilation's users
252 beyond what the individual works permit. Inclusion of a covered work
253 in an aggregate does not cause this License to apply to the other
254 parts of the aggregate.
255
256 6. Conveying Non-Source Forms.
257
258 You may convey a covered work in object code form under the terms
259 of sections 4 and 5, provided that you also convey the
260 machine-readable Corresponding Source under the terms of this License,
261 in one of these ways:
262
263 a) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
264 (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by the
265 Corresponding Source fixed on a durable physical medium
266 customarily used for software interchange.
267
268 b) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
269 (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by a
270 written offer, valid for at least three years and valid for as
271 long as you offer spare parts or customer support for that product
272 model, to give anyone who possesses the object code either (1) a
273 copy of the Corresponding Source for all the software in the
274 product that is covered by this License, on a durable physical
275 medium customarily used for software interchange, for a price no
276 more than your reasonable cost of physically performing this
277 conveying of source, or (2) access to copy the
278 Corresponding Source from a network server at no charge.
279
280 c) Convey individual copies of the object code with a copy of the
281 written offer to provide the Corresponding Source. This
282 alternative is allowed only occasionally and noncommercially, and
283 only if you received the object code with such an offer, in accord
284 with subsection 6b.
285
286 d) Convey the object code by offering access from a designated
287 place (gratis or for a charge), and offer equivalent access to the
288 Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no
289 further charge. You need not require recipients to copy the
290 Corresponding Source along with the object code. If the place to
291 copy the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source
292 may be on a different server (operated by you or a third party)
293 that supports equivalent copying facilities, provided you maintain
294 clear directions next to the object code saying where to find the
295 Corresponding Source. Regardless of what server hosts the
296 Corresponding Source, you remain obligated to ensure that it is
297 available for as long as needed to satisfy these requirements.
298
299 e) Convey the object code using peer-to-peer transmission, provided
300 you inform other peers where the object code and Corresponding
301 Source of the work are being offered to the general public at no
302 charge under subsection 6d.
303
304 A separable portion of the object code, whose source code is excluded
305 from the Corresponding Source as a System Library, need not be
306 included in conveying the object code work.
307
308 A "User Product" is either (1) a "consumer product", which means any
309 tangible personal property which is normally used for personal, family,
310 or household purposes, or (2) anything designed or sold for incorporation
311 into a dwelling. In determining whether a product is a consumer product,
312 doubtful cases shall be resolved in favor of coverage. For a particular
313 product received by a particular user, "normally used" refers to a
314 typical or common use of that class of product, regardless of the status
315 of the particular user or of the way in which the particular user
316 actually uses, or expects or is expected to use, the product. A product
317 is a consumer product regardless of whether the product has substantial
318 commercial, industrial or non-consumer uses, unless such uses represent
319 the only significant mode of use of the product.
320
321 "Installation Information" for a User Product means any methods,
322 procedures, authorization keys, or other information required to install
323 and execute modified versions of a covered work in that User Product from
324 a modified version of its Corresponding Source. The information must
325 suffice to ensure that the continued functioning of the modified object
326 code is in no case prevented or interfered with solely because
327 modification has been made.
328
329 If you convey an object code work under this section in, or with, or
330 specifically for use in, a User Product, and the conveying occurs as
331 part of a transaction in which the right of possession and use of the
332 User Product is transferred to the recipient in perpetuity or for a
333 fixed term (regardless of how the transaction is characterized), the
334 Corresponding Source conveyed under this section must be accompanied
335 by the Installation Information. But this requirement does not apply
336 if neither you nor any third party retains the ability to install
337 modified object code on the User Product (for example, the work has
338 been installed in ROM).
339
340 The requirement to provide Installation Information does not include a
341 requirement to continue to provide support service, warranty, or updates
342 for a work that has been modified or installed by the recipient, or for
343 the User Product in which it has been modified or installed. Access to a
344 network may be denied when the modification itself materially and
345 adversely affects the operation of the network or violates the rules and
346 protocols for communication across the network.
347
348 Corresponding Source conveyed, and Installation Information provided,
349 in accord with this section must be in a format that is publicly
350 documented (and with an implementation available to the public in
351 source code form), and must require no special password or key for
352 unpacking, reading or copying.
353
354 7. Additional Terms.
355
356 "Additional permissions" are terms that supplement the terms of this
357 License by making exceptions from one or more of its conditions.
358 Additional permissions that are applicable to the entire Program shall
359 be treated as though they were included in this License, to the extent
360 that they are valid under applicable law. If additional permissions
361 apply only to part of the Program, that part may be used separately
362 under those permissions, but the entire Program remains governed by
363 this License without regard to the additional permissions.
364
365 When you convey a copy of a covered work, you may at your option
366 remove any additional permissions from that copy, or from any part of
367 it. (Additional permissions may be written to require their own
368 removal in certain cases when you modify the work.) You may place
369 additional permissions on material, added by you to a covered work,
370 for which you have or can give appropriate copyright permission.
371
372 Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, for material you
373 add to a covered work, you may (if authorized by the copyright holders of
374 that material) supplement the terms of this License with terms:
375
376 a) Disclaiming warranty or limiting liability differently from the
377 terms of sections 15 and 16 of this License; or
378
379 b) Requiring preservation of specified reasonable legal notices or
380 author attributions in that material or in the Appropriate Legal
381 Notices displayed by works containing it; or
382
383 c) Prohibiting misrepresentation of the origin of that material, or
384 requiring that modified versions of such material be marked in
385 reasonable ways as different from the original version; or
386
387 d) Limiting the use for publicity purposes of names of licensors or
388 authors of the material; or
389
390 e) Declining to grant rights under trademark law for use of some
391 trade names, trademarks, or service marks; or
392
393 f) Requiring indemnification of licensors and authors of that
394 material by anyone who conveys the material (or modified versions of
395 it) with contractual assumptions of liability to the recipient, for
396 any liability that these contractual assumptions directly impose on
397 those licensors and authors.
398
399 All other non-permissive additional terms are considered "further
400 restrictions" within the meaning of section 10. If the Program as you
401 received it, or any part of it, contains a notice stating that it is
402 governed by this License along with a term that is a further
403 restriction, you may remove that term. If a license document contains
404 a further restriction but permits relicensing or conveying under this
405 License, you may add to a covered work material governed by the terms
406 of that license document, provided that the further restriction does
407 not survive such relicensing or conveying.
408
409 If you add terms to a covered work in accord with this section, you
410 must place, in the relevant source files, a statement of the
411 additional terms that apply to those files, or a notice indicating
412 where to find the applicable terms.
413
414 Additional terms, permissive or non-permissive, may be stated in the
415 form of a separately written license, or stated as exceptions;
416 the above requirements apply either way.
417
418 8. Termination.
419
420 You may not propagate or modify a covered work except as expressly
421 provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to propagate or
422 modify it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under
423 this License (including any patent licenses granted under the third
424 paragraph of section 11).
425
426 However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your
427 license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a)
428 provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and
429 finally terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright
430 holder fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means
431 prior to 60 days after the cessation.
432
433 Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is
434 reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the
435 violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you have
436 received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that
437 copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after
438 your receipt of the notice.
439
440 Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the
441 licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under
442 this License. If your rights have been terminated and not permanently
443 reinstated, you do not qualify to receive new licenses for the same
444 material under section 10.
445
446 9. Acceptance Not Required for Having Copies.
447
448 You are not required to accept this License in order to receive or
449 run a copy of the Program. Ancillary propagation of a covered work
450 occurring solely as a consequence of using peer-to-peer transmission
451 to receive a copy likewise does not require acceptance. However,
452 nothing other than this License grants you permission to propagate or
453 modify any covered work. These actions infringe copyright if you do
454 not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or propagating a
455 covered work, you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so.
456
457 10. Automatic Licensing of Downstream Recipients.
458
459 Each time you convey a covered work, the recipient automatically
460 receives a license from the original licensors, to run, modify and
461 propagate that work, subject to this License. You are not responsible
462 for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License.
463
464 An "entity transaction" is a transaction transferring control of an
465 organization, or substantially all assets of one, or subdividing an
466 organization, or merging organizations. If propagation of a covered
467 work results from an entity transaction, each party to that
468 transaction who receives a copy of the work also receives whatever
469 licenses to the work the party's predecessor in interest had or could
470 give under the previous paragraph, plus a right to possession of the
471 Corresponding Source of the work from the predecessor in interest, if
472 the predecessor has it or can get it with reasonable efforts.
473
474 You may not impose any further restrictions on the exercise of the
475 rights granted or affirmed under this License. For example, you may
476 not impose a license fee, royalty, or other charge for exercise of
477 rights granted under this License, and you may not initiate litigation
478 (including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that
479 any patent claim is infringed by making, using, selling, offering for
480 sale, or importing the Program or any portion of it.
481
482 11. Patents.
483
484 A "contributor" is a copyright holder who authorizes use under this
485 License of the Program or a work on which the Program is based. The
486 work thus licensed is called the contributor's "contributor version".
487
488 A contributor's "essential patent claims" are all patent claims
489 owned or controlled by the contributor, whether already acquired or
490 hereafter acquired, that would be infringed by some manner, permitted
491 by this License, of making, using, or selling its contributor version,
492 but do not include claims that would be infringed only as a
493 consequence of further modification of the contributor version. For
494 purposes of this definition, "control" includes the right to grant
495 patent sublicenses in a manner consistent with the requirements of

498 Each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free
499 patent license under the contributor's essential patent claims, to
500 make, use, sell, offer for sale, import and otherwise run, modify and
501 propagate the contents of its contributor version.
502
503 In the following three paragraphs, a "patent license" is any express
504 agreement or commitment, however denominated, not to enforce a patent
505 (such as an express permission to practice a patent or covenant not to
506 sue for patent infringement). To "grant" such a patent license to a
507 party means to make such an agreement or commitment not to enforce a
508 patent against the party.
509
510 If you convey a covered work, knowingly relying on a patent license,
511 and the Corresponding Source of the work is not available for anyone
512 to copy, free of charge and under the terms of this License, through a
513 publicly available network server or other readily accessible means,
514 then you must either (1) cause the Corresponding Source to be so
515 available, or (2) arrange to deprive yourself of the benefit of the
516 patent license for this particular work, or (3) arrange, in a manner
517 consistent with the requirements of this License, to extend the patent
518 license to downstream recipients. "Knowingly relying" means you have
519 actual knowledge that, but for the patent license, your conveying the
520 covered work in a country, or your recipient's use of the covered work
521 in a country, would infringe one or more identifiable patents in that
522 country that you have reason to believe are valid.
523
524 If, pursuant to or in connection with a single transaction or
525 arrangement, you convey, or propagate by procuring conveyance of, a
526 covered work, and grant a patent license to some of the parties
527 receiving the covered work authorizing them to use, propagate, modify
528 or convey a specific copy of the covered work, then the patent license
529 you grant is automatically extended to all recipients of the covered
530 work and works based on it.
531
532 A patent license is "discriminatory" if it does not include within
533 the scope of its coverage, prohibits the exercise of, or is
534 conditioned on the non-exercise of one or more of the rights that are
535 specifically granted under this License. You may not convey a covered
536 work if you are a party to an arrangement with a third party that is
537 in the business of distributing software, under which you make payment
538 to the third party based on the extent of your activity of conveying
539 the work, and under which the third party grants, to any of the
540 parties who would receive the covered work from you, a discriminatory
541 patent license (a) in connection with copies of the covered work
542 conveyed by you (or copies made from those copies), or (b) primarily
543 for and in connection with specific products or compilations that
544 contain the covered work, unless you entered into that arrangement,
545 or that patent license was granted, prior to 28 March 2007.
546
547 Nothing in this License shall be construed as excluding or limiting
548 any implied license or other defenses to infringement that may
549 otherwise be available to you under applicable patent law.
550
551 12. No Surrender of Others' Freedom.
552
553 If conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
b21a55b @OpenCFD initial commit for version 1.6.x patch release
authored
554 otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
fefc665 STYLE: Updated License to GPL v3
andy authored
555 excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot convey a
556 covered work so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
557 License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may
558 not convey it at all. For example, if you agree to terms that obligate you
559 to collect a royalty for further conveying from those to whom you convey
560 the Program, the only way you could satisfy both those terms and this
561 License would be to refrain entirely from conveying the Program.
562
563 13. Use with the GNU Affero General Public License.
564
565 Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, you have
566 permission to link or combine any covered work with a work licensed
567 under version 3 of the GNU Affero General Public License into a single
568 combined work, and to convey the resulting work. The terms of this
569 License will continue to apply to the part which is the covered work,
570 but the special requirements of the GNU Affero General Public License,
571 section 13, concerning interaction through a network will apply to the
572 combination as such.
573
574 14. Revised Versions of this License.
575
576 The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of
577 the GNU General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will
b21a55b @OpenCFD initial commit for version 1.6.x patch release
authored
578 be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
579 address new problems or concerns.
580
fefc665 STYLE: Updated License to GPL v3
andy authored
581 Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the
582 Program specifies that a certain numbered version of the GNU General
583 Public License "or any later version" applies to it, you have the
584 option of following the terms and conditions either of that numbered
585 version or of any later version published by the Free Software
586 Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of the
587 GNU General Public License, you may choose any version ever published
588 by the Free Software Foundation.
589
590 If the Program specifies that a proxy can decide which future
591 versions of the GNU General Public License can be used, that proxy's
592 public statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you
593 to choose that version for the Program.
594
595 Later license versions may give you additional or different
596 permissions. However, no additional obligations are imposed on any
597 author or copyright holder as a result of your choosing to follow a
598 later version.
599
600 15. Disclaimer of Warranty.
601
602 THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY
603 APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT
604 HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY
605 OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO,
606 THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
607 PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM
608 IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF
609 ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
610
611 16. Limitation of Liability.
612
613 IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
614 WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MODIFIES AND/OR CONVEYS
615 THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY
616 GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE
617 USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF
618 DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD
619 PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS),
620 EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF
621 SUCH DAMAGES.
622
623 17. Interpretation of Sections 15 and 16.
624
625 If the disclaimer of warranty and limitation of liability provided
626 above cannot be given local legal effect according to their terms,
627 reviewing courts shall apply local law that most closely approximates
628 an absolute waiver of all civil liability in connection with the
629 Program, unless a warranty or assumption of liability accompanies a
630 copy of the Program in return for a fee.

636 If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
637 possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
638 free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
639
640 To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest
641 to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively

672 parts of the General Public License. Of course, your program's commands
673 might be different; for a GUI interface, you would use an "about box".
674
675 You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or school,
676 if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if necessary.
677 For more information on this, and how to apply and follow the GNU GPL, see
678 <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>.
679
680 The GNU General Public License does not permit incorporating your program
681 into proprietary programs. If your program is a subroutine library, you
682 may consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with
683 the library. If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General
684 Public License instead of this License. But first, please read
