GNU Emacs copying permission notice Copyright (C) 1985 Richard M. Stallman
Verbatim copies of this document, including its copyright notice,
may be distributed by anyone in any manner.
Distribution with modifications is not permitted.
GNU Emacs is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
but without any warranty. No author or distributor
accepts responsibility to anyone for the consequences of using it
or for whether it serves any particular purpose or works at all,
unless he says so in writing.
Everyone is granted permission to copy, modify and redistribute
GNU Emacs under the following conditions:
Permission is granted to anyone to make or distribute verbatim copies
of GNU Emacs source code as received, in any medium, provided that all
copyright notices and permission and nonwarranty notices are preserved,
and that the distributor grants the recipient permission
for further redistribution as permitted by this document,
and gives him and points out to him an exact copy of this document
to inform him of his rights.
Permission is granted to distribute modified versions
of GNU Emacs source code, or of portions of it,
under the above conditions, provided also that all
changed files carry prominent notices stating who last changed them
and that all the GNU-Emacs-derived material, including everything
packaged together with it and not independently usable, is
distributed under the conditions stated in this document.
Permission is granted to distribute GNU Emacs in
compiled or executable form under the same conditions applying
for source code, provided that either
A. it is accompanied by the corresponding machine-readable
source code, or
B. it is accompanied by a written offer, with no time limit,
to give anyone a machine-readable copy of the corresponding
source code in return for reimbursement of the cost of distribution.
This written offer must permit verbatim duplication by anyone.
C. it is distributed by someone who received only the
executable form, and is accompanied by a copy of the
written offer of source code which he received along with it.
In other words, you are welcome to use, share and improve GNU Emacs
You are forbidden to forbid anyone else to use, share and improve
what you give them. Help stamp out software-hoarding!
