+Hospital, Inc. ("Brigham"). Part A of this Agreement applies to
+contributions of software and/or data to Slicer (including making
+revisions of or additions to code and/or data already in Slicer). Part
+B of this Agreement applies to downloads of software and/or data from
+Slicer. Part C of this Agreement applies to all transactions with
+Slicer. If you distribute Software (as defined below) downloaded from
+Slicer, all of the paragraphs of Part B of this Agreement must be
+included with and apply to such Software.
+
+Your contribution of software and/or data to Slicer (including prior
+to the date of the first publication of this Agreement, each a
+"Contribution") and/or downloading, copying, modifying, displaying,
+distributing or use of any software and/or data from Slicer
+(collectively, the "Software") constitutes acceptance of all of the
+terms and conditions of this Agreement. If you do not agree to such
+terms and conditions, you have no right to contribute your
+Contribution, or to download, copy, modify, display, distribute or use
+the Software.
+
+PART A. CONTRIBUTION AGREEMENT - License to Brigham with Right to
+Sublicense ("Contribution Agreement").
+
+1. As used in this Contribution Agreement, "you" means the individual
+ contributing the Contribution to Slicer and the institution or
+ entity which employs or is otherwise affiliated with such
+ individual in connection with such Contribution.
+
+2. This Contribution Agreement applies to all Contributions made to
+ Slicer, including without limitation Contributions made prior to
+ the date of first publication of this Agreement. If at any time you
+ make a Contribution to Slicer, you represent that (i) you are
+ legally authorized and entitled to make such Contribution and to
+ grant all licenses granted in this Contribution Agreement with
+ respect to such Contribution; (ii) if your Contribution includes
+ any patient data, all such data is de-identified in accordance with
+ U.S. confidentiality and security laws and requirements, including
+ but not limited to the Health Insurance Portability and
+ Accountability Act (HIPAA) and its regulations, and your disclosure
+ of such data for the purposes contemplated by this Agreement is
+ properly authorized and in compliance with all applicable laws and
+ regulations; and (iii) you have preserved in the Contribution all
+ applicable attributions, copyright notices and licenses for any
+ third party software or data included in the Contribution.
+
+3. Except for the licenses granted in this Agreement, you reserve all
+ right, title and interest in your Contribution.
+
+4. You hereby grant to Brigham, with the right to sublicense, a
+ perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, no charge, royalty-free,
+ irrevocable license to use, reproduce, make derivative works of,
+ display and distribute the Contribution. If your Contribution is
+ protected by patent, you hereby grant to Brigham, with the right to
+ sublicense, a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, no-charge,
+ royalty-free, irrevocable license under your interest in patent
+ rights covering the Contribution, to make, have made, use, sell and
+ otherwise transfer your Contribution, alone or in combination with
+ any other code.
+
+5. You acknowledge and agree that Brigham may incorporate your
+ Contribution into Slicer and may make Slicer available to members
+ of the public on an open source basis under terms substantially in
+ accordance with the Software License set forth in Part B of this
+ Agreement. You further acknowledge and agree that Brigham shall
+ have no liability arising in connection with claims resulting from
+ your breach of any of the terms of this Agreement.
+
+6. YOU WARRANT THAT TO THE BEST OF YOUR KNOWLEDGE YOUR CONTRIBUTION
+ DOES NOT CONTAIN ANY CODE THAT REQURES OR PRESCRIBES AN "OPEN
+ SOURCE LICENSE" FOR DERIVATIVE WORKS (by way of non-limiting
+ example, the GNU General Public License or other so-called
+ "reciprocal" license that requires any derived work to be licensed
+ under the GNU General Public License or other "open source
+ license").
+
+PART B. DOWNLOADING AGREEMENT - License from Brigham with Right to
+Sublicense ("Software License").
+
+1. As used in this Software License, "you" means the individual
+ downloading and/or using, reproducing, modifying, displaying and/or

+ Inc. ("Brigham") hereby grants you, with right to sublicense, with
+ respect to Brigham's rights in the software, and data, if any,

+ AGAINST ANY AND ALL CLAIMS, SUITS, ACTIONS, DEMANDS AND JUDGMENTS
+ ARISING THEREFROM.
+
+6. None of the names, logos or trademarks of Brigham or any of
+ Brigham's affiliates or any of the Contributors, or any funding
+ agency, may be used to endorse or promote products produced in
+ whole or in part by operation of the Software or derived from or
