PROGRAM LICENSE AGREEMENT
Version 2.0
March 16, 1994
RSA LABORATORIES, A DIVISION OF RSA DATA SECURITY, INC. ("RSA")
GRANTS YOU A LICENSE AS FOLLOWS TO THE "RSAREF" PROGRAM:
1. LICENSE. RSA grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable,
perpetual (subject to the conditions of Section 8) license for
the "RSAREF" program (the "Program") and its associated
documentation, subject to all of the following terms and
conditions:
a. to use the Program on any computer;
b. to make copies of the Program for back-up purposes;
c. to modify the Program in any manner for porting or
performance improvement purposes (subject to Section 2)
or to incorporate the Program into other computer programs
for your own personal or internal use, provided that you
provide RSA with a copy of any such modification or
Application Program by electronic mail, and grant RSA a
perpetual, royalty-free license to use and distribute such
modifications and Application Programs on the terms set
forth in this Agreement.
d. to copy and distribute the Program and Application Programs
in accordance with the limitations set forth in Section 2.
"Application Programs" are programs which incorporate all or any
portion of the Program in any form. The restrictions imposed on
Application Programs in this Agreement shall not apply to any
software which, through the mere aggregation on distribution media,
is co-located or stored with the Program.
2. LIMITATIONS ON LICENSE.
a. RSA owns the Program and its associated documentation and
all copyrights therein. You may only use, copy, modify and
distribute the Program as expressly provided for in this
Agreement. You must reproduce and include this Agreement,
RSA's copyright notices and disclaimer of warranty on any
copy and its associated documentation. The Program and any
Application programs must be distributed with their source code.
b. The Program may not be used directly for revenue-generating
purposes. You may not:
(i) use the Program to provide services to others for which
you are compensated in any manner;
(ii) license or otherwise distribute any Application Program
in any manner that generates income to you, including
without limitation any income on account of license
fees, royalties, maintenance fees and upgrade fees; and
(iii) license or otherwise distribute any Application
Program without the express written acknowledgment of
the end user that the Program will not be used in
connection with any revenue-generating activity of the
end user.
Nothing in this paragraph prohibits you from using the
Program or any Application Program solely for internal
purposes on the premises of a business which is engaged in
revenue-generating activities.
c. The Program, if modified, must carry prominent notices
stating that changes have been made, and the dates of any
such changes.
d. Prior permission from RSA in writing is required for any
modifications that access the Program through ways other
than the published Program interface or for modifications
to the Program interface. RSA will grant all reasonable
requests for permission to make such modifications.
3. NO RSA OBLIGATION. You are solely responsible for all of your
costs and expenses incurred in connection with the distribution
of the Program or any Application Program hereunder, and RSA
shall have no liability, obligation or responsibility therefor.
RSA shall have no obligation to provide maintenance, support,
upgrades or new releases to you or to any distributee of the
Program or any Application Program.
4. NO WARRANTY OF PERFORMANCE. THE PROGRAM AND ITS ASSOCIATED
DOCUMENTATION ARE LICENSED "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY AS TO THEIR
PERFORMANCE, MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR
PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE RESULTS AND PERFORMANCE OF
THE PROGRAM IS ASSUMED BY YOU AND YOUR DISTRIBUTEES. SHOULD THE
PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU AND YOUR DISTRIBUTEES (AND NOT RSA)
ASSUME THE ENTIRE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR
CORRECTION.
5. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY PROVIDED FOR IN
SECTION 6 HEREINUNDER, NEITHER RSA NOR ANY OTHER PERSON WHO HAS
BEEN INVOLVED IN THE CREATION, PRODUCTION, OR DELIVERY OF THE
PROGRAM SHALL BE LIABLE TO YOU OR TO ANY OTHER PERSON FOR ANY
DIRECT, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, EVEN IF RSA HAS BEEN
ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
6. PATENT INFRINGEMENT OBLIGATION. Subject to the limitations set
forth below, RSA, at its own expense, shall: (i) defend, or at
its option settle, any claim, suit or proceeding against you on
the basis of infringement of any United States patent in the
field of cryptography by the unmodified Program; and (ii) pay any
final judgment or settlement entered against you on such issue in
any such suit or proceeding defended by RSA. The obligations of
RSA under this Section 6 are subject to: (i) RSA's having sole
control of the defense of any such claim, suit or proceeding;
(ii) your notifying RSA promptly in writing of each such claim,
suit or proceeding and giving RSA authority to proceed as stated
in this Section 6; and (iii) your giving RSA all information
known to you relating to such claim, suit or proceeding and
cooperating with RSA to defend any such claim, suit or
proceeding. RSA shall have no obligation under this Section 6
with respect to any claim to the extent it is based upon (a) use
of the Program as modified by any person other than RSA or use of
any Application Program, where use of the unmodified Program
would not constitute an infringement, or (b) use of the Program
in a manner other than that permitted by this Agreement. THIS
SECTION 6 SETS FORTH RSA'S ENTIRE OBLIGATION AND YOUR EXCLUSIVE
REMEDIES CONCERNING CLAIMS FOR PROPRIETARY RIGHTS INFRINGEMENT.
NOTE: Portions of the Program practice methods described in and
subject to U.S. Patents Nos. 4,200,770, 4,218,582 and 4,405,829,
and all foreign counterparts and equivalents, issued to Leland
Stanford Jr. University and to Massachusetts Institute of
Technology. Such patents are licensed to RSA by Public Key
Partners of Sunnyvale, California, the holder of exclusive
licensing rights. This Agreement does not grant or convey any
interest whatsoever in such patents.
7. RSAREF is a non-commercial publication of cryptographic
techniques. Portions of RSAREF have been published in the
International Security Handbook and the August 1992 issue of Dr.
Dobb's Journal. Privacy applications developed with RSAREF may be
subject to export controls. If you are located in the United States
and develop such applications, you are advised to consult with the
State Department's Office of Defense Trade Controls.
8. TERM. The license granted hereunder is effective until
terminated. You may terminate it at any time by destroying the
Program and its associated documentation. The termination of your
license will not result in the termination of the licenses of any
distributees who have received rights to the Program through you
so long as they are in compliance with the provisions of this
license.
9. GENERAL
a. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of
California.
b. Address all correspondence regarding this license to RSA's
