Preamble
9
10
This license establishes the terms under which a given free software
11
Package may be copied, modified, distributed, and/or redistributed.
12
The intent is that the Copyright Holder maintains some artistic
13
control over the development of that Package while still keeping the
14
Package available as open source and free software.
15
16
You are always permitted to make arrangements wholly outside of this
17
license directly with the Copyright Holder of a given Package. If the
18
terms of this license do not permit the full use that you propose to
19
make of the Package, you should contact the Copyright Holder and seek
20
a different licensing arrangement.

accessible to anyone else, or in the case of a company or

organization, to others outside of your company or organization.
42
43
"Distributor Fee" means any fee that you charge for Distributing
44
this Package or providing support for this Package to another
45
party. It does not mean licensing fees.
46

48
modified, or has been modified only in ways explicitly requested
49
by the Copyright Holder.
50

52
such changes were not explicitly requested by the Copyright
53
Holder.

the Standard Version of the Package, in its current version or as
57
it may be modified by The Perl Foundation in the future.

60
configuration files for the Package.

Permission for Use and Modification Without Distribution
68
69
(1) You are permitted to use the Standard Version and create and use
70
Modified Versions for any purpose without restriction, provided that
71
you do not Distribute the Modified Version.
72
73
74
Permissions for Redistribution of the Standard Version
75
76
(2) You may Distribute verbatim copies of the Source form of the
77
Standard Version of this Package in any medium without restriction,
78
either gratis or for a Distributor Fee, provided that you duplicate
79
all of the original copyright notices and associated disclaimers. At
80
your discretion, such verbatim copies may or may not include a
81
Compiled form of the Package.
82
83
(3) You may apply any bug fixes, portability changes, and other
84
modifications made available from the Copyright Holder. The resulting
85
Package will still be considered the Standard Version, and as such
86
will be subject to the Original License.
87
88
89
Distribution of Modified Versions of the Package as Source
90
91
(4) You may Distribute your Modified Version as Source (either gratis
92
or for a Distributor Fee, and with or without a Compiled form of the
93
Modified Version) provided that you clearly document how it differs
94
from the Standard Version, including, but not limited to, documenting
95
any non-standard features, executables, or modules, and provided that
96
you do at least ONE of the following:
97
98
(a) make the Modified Version available to the Copyright Holder
99
of the Standard Version, under the Original License, so that the
100
Copyright Holder may include your modifications in the Standard
101
Version.
102
103
(b) ensure that installation of your Modified Version does not
104
prevent the user installing or running the Standard Version. In
105
addition, the Modified Version must bear a name that is different
106
from the name of the Standard Version.
107
108
(c) allow anyone who receives a copy of the Modified Version to
109
make the Source form of the Modified Version available to others
110
under
111
112
(i) the Original License or
113
114
(ii) a license that permits the licensee to freely copy,
115
modify and redistribute the Modified Version using the same
116
licensing terms that apply to the copy that the licensee
117
received, and requires that the Source form of the Modified
118
Version, and of any works derived from it, be made freely
119
available in that license fees are prohibited but Distributor
120
Fees are allowed.
121
122
123
Distribution of Compiled Forms of the Standard Version
124
or Modified Versions without the Source
125
126
(5) You may Distribute Compiled forms of the Standard Version without
127
the Source, provided that you include complete instructions on how to
128
get the Source of the Standard Version. Such instructions must be
129
valid at the time of your distribution. If these instructions, at any
130
time while you are carrying out such distribution, become invalid, you
131
must provide new instructions on demand or cease further distribution.
132
If you provide valid instructions or cease distribution within thirty
133
days after you become aware that the instructions are invalid, then
134
you do not forfeit any of your rights under this license.
135
136
(6) You may Distribute a Modified Version in Compiled form without
137
the Source, provided that you comply with Section 4 with respect to
138
the Source of the Modified Version.
139
140
141
Aggregating or Linking the Package
142
143
(7) You may aggregate the Package (either the Standard Version or
144
Modified Version) with other packages and Distribute the resulting
145
aggregation provided that you do not charge a licensing fee for the
146
Package. Distributor Fees are permitted, and licensing fees for other
147
components in the aggregation are permitted. The terms of this license
148
apply to the use and Distribution of the Standard or Modified Versions
149
as included in the aggregation.
150
151
(8) You are permitted to link Modified and Standard Versions with
152
other works, to embed the Package in a larger work of your own, or to
153
build stand-alone binary or bytecode versions of applications that
154
include the Package, and Distribute the result without restriction,
155
provided the result does not expose a direct interface to the Package.
156
157
158
Items That are Not Considered Part of a Modified Version
159
160
(9) Works (including, but not limited to, modules and scripts) that
161
merely extend or make use of the Package, do not, by themselves, cause
162
the Package to be a Modified Version. In addition, such works are not
163
considered parts of the Package itself, and are not subject to the
164
terms of this license.
165
166
167
General Provisions
168
169
(10) Any use, modification, and distribution of the Standard or
170
Modified Versions is governed by this Artistic License. By using,
171
modifying or distributing the Package, you accept this license. Do not
172
use, modify, or distribute the Package, if you do not accept this
173
license.
174
175
(11) If your Modified Version has been derived from a Modified
176
Version made by someone other than you, you are nevertheless required
177
to ensure that your Modified Version complies with the requirements of
178
this license.
179
180
(12) This license does not grant you the right to use any trademark,
181
service mark, tradename, or logo of the Copyright Holder.
182
183
(13) This license includes the non-exclusive, worldwide,
184
free-of-charge patent license to make, have made, use, offer to sell,
185
sell, import and otherwise transfer the Package with respect to any
186
patent claims licensable by the Copyright Holder that are necessarily
187
infringed by the Package. If you institute patent litigation
188
(including a cross-claim or counterclaim) against any party alleging
189
that the Package constitutes direct or contributory patent
190
infringement, then this Artistic License to you shall terminate on the
191
date that such litigation is filed.
