Version 1.0 (December 20, 2005)
This Agreement covers contributions to and downloads from the 3D
Slicer project ("Slicer") maintained by The Brigham and Women's
Hospital, Inc. ("Brigham"). Part A of this Agreement applies to

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, 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").

Sublicense ("Software License").
