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