+
+In the spirit of contributing to the Public Domain, to the full extent possible
+under law, the Rusty Authors ("The Authors") have waived all copyright, patent
+and related or neighboring rights to their Contributions to Rusty ("The Work").
+
+This does not apply to works authored by third parties ("Third Party Works")
+which come with their own copyright and licensing terms. These terms may be
+defined in explicit files within the `third_party` directories or specified as
+part of the contents of licensed files. We recommend you read them as their
+terms may differ from the terms below.
+
+All trademarks and registered trademarks mentioned in The Work are the property
+of their respective owners.
+
+
+Usage
+-----
+
+To affirm that a Contribution to The Work is covered by this Unlicense, add an
+informative header like::
+
+ # Public Domain (-) 2012 The Rusty Authors.
+ # See the Rusty UNLICENSE file for details.
+
+If the Contribution is to an existing Third Party Work, then it can be affirmed
+with an informative header like::

+Statement of Purpose
+--------------------
+
+The laws of most jurisdictions throughout the world automatically confer
+exclusive Copyright and Related Rights (defined below) upon the creator and
+subsequent owner(s) (each and all, an "owner") of an original work of authorship
+and/or a database (each, a "Work").
+
+Certain owners wish to permanently relinquish those rights to a Work for the
+purpose of contributing to a commons of creative, cultural and scientific works
+("Commons") that the public can reliably and without fear of later claims of
+infringement build upon, modify, incorporate in other works, reuse and
+redistribute as freely as possible in any form whatsoever and for any purposes,
+including without limitation commercial purposes.
+
+These owners may contribute to the Commons to promote the ideal of a free
+culture and the further production of creative, cultural and scientific works,
+or to gain reputation or greater distribution for their Work in part through the
+use and efforts of others.
+
+For these and/or other purposes and motivations, and without any expectation of
+additional consideration or compensation, the person associating the Unlicense
+with a Work (the "Affirmer"), to the extent that he or she is an owner of
+Copyright and Related Rights in the Work, voluntarily elects to apply the
+Unlicense to the Work and publicly distribute the Work under its terms, with
+knowledge of his or her Copyright and Related Rights in the Work and the meaning
+and intended legal effect of the Unlicense on those rights.
+
+
+Definitions
+-----------
+
+The term "distribute" has the same meaning here as under U.S. copyright law. A
+"Contribution" is the original Work, or any additions or changes to it.
+
+A Work made available under the Unlicense may be protected by copyright and
+related or neighboring rights ("Copyright and Related Rights"). Copyright and
+Related Rights include, but are not limited to, the following:
+
+1. the right to reproduce, adapt, distribute, perform, display, communicate, and
+ translate a Work;
+
+2. moral rights retained by the original author(s) and/or performer(s);
+
+3. publicity and privacy rights pertaining to a person's image or likeness
+ depicted in a Work;
+
+4. rights protecting against unfair competition in regards to a Work, subject to
+ the Limitations and Disclaimers, below;
+
+5. rights protecting the extraction, dissemination, use and reuse of data in a
+ Work;
+
+6. database rights (such as those arising under Directive 96/9/EC of the
+ European Parliament and of the Council of 11 March 1996 on the legal
+ protection of databases, and under any national implementation thereof,
+ including any amended or successor version of such directive); and
+
+7. other similar, equivalent or corresponding rights throughout the world based
+ on applicable law or treaty, and any national implementations thereof.
+
+
+Waiver
+------
+
+To the greatest extent permitted by, but not in contravention of, applicable
+law, Affirmer hereby overtly, fully, permanently, irrevocably and
+unconditionally waives, abandons, and surrenders all of Affirmer's Copyright and
+Related Rights and associated claims and causes of action, whether now known or
+unknown (including existing as well as future claims and causes of action), in
+the Work (i) in all territories worldwide, (ii) for the maximum duration
+provided by applicable law or treaty (including future time extensions), (iii)
+in any current or future medium and for any number of copies, and (iv) for any
+purpose whatsoever, including without limitation commercial, advertising or
+promotional purposes (the "Waiver").
+
+Affirmer makes the Waiver for the benefit of each member of the public at large
+and to the detriment of Affirmer's heirs and successors, fully intending that
+such Waiver shall not be subject to revocation, rescission, cancellation,
+termination, or any other legal or equitable action to disrupt the quiet
+enjoyment of the Work by the public as contemplated by Affirmer's express
+Statement of Purpose.
+
+
+Public License Fallback
+-----------------------
+
+Should any part of the Waiver for any reason be judged legally invalid or
+ineffective under applicable law, then the Waiver shall be preserved to the
+maximum extent permitted taking into account Affirmer's express Statement of
+Purpose. In addition, to the extent the Waiver is so judged Affirmer hereby
+grants to each affected person a royalty-free, non transferable, non
+sublicensable, non exclusive, irrevocable and unconditional license to exercise
+Affirmer's Copyright and Related Rights in the Work (i) in all territories
+worldwide, (ii) for the maximum duration provided by applicable law or treaty
+(including future time extensions), (iii) in any current or future medium and
+for any number of copies, and (iv) for any purpose whatsoever, including without
+limitation commercial, advertising or promotional purposes (the "Public
+License").
+
+The Public License shall be deemed effective as of the date the Unlicense was
+applied by Affirmer to the Work. Should any part of the Public License for any
+reason be judged legally invalid or ineffective under applicable law, such
+partial invalidity or ineffectiveness shall not invalidate the remainder of the
+Public License, and in such case Affirmer hereby affirms that he or she will not
+(i) exercise any of his or her remaining Copyright and Related Rights in the
+Work or (ii) assert any associated claims and causes of action with respect to
+the Work, in either case contrary to Affirmer's express Statement of Purpose.
+
+
+Grant of Patent Rights
+----------------------
+
+Affirmer hereby grants to You a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, no-charge,
+royalty-free, irrevocable (except as stated in this section) patent license to
+make, have made, use, offer to sell, sell, import, transfer and otherwise run,
+modify and propagate the contents of this Work, where such license applies only
+to those patent claims, both currently owned or controlled by Affirmer and
+acquired in the future, licensable by Affirmer that are necessarily infringed by
+this Work. This grant does not include claims that would be infringed only as a
+consequence of further modification of this implementation. If you or your agent
+or exclusive licensee institute or order or agree to the institution of patent
+litigation against any entity (including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a
+lawsuit) alleging that this Work or any Contribution incorporated within this
+Work constitutes direct or contributory patent infringement, or inducement of
+patent infringement, then any patent rights granted to you under this Grant of
+Patent Rights for the Work shall terminate as of the date such litigation is
+filed.
+
+
+Limitations and Disclaimers
+---------------------------
+
+1. No trademark rights held by Affirmer are waived, abandoned, surrendered,
+ licensed or otherwise affected by this document.
+
+2. Affirmer offers the Work as-is and makes no representations or warranties of
+ any kind concerning the Work, express, implied, statutory or otherwise,
+ including without limitation warranties of title, merchantability, fitness
+ for a particular purpose, non infringement, or the absence of latent or other
+ defects, accuracy, or the present or absence of errors, whether or not
+ discoverable, all to the greatest extent permissible under applicable law.
+
+ In no event shall the Affirmer be liable for any direct, indirect,
+ incidental, special, exemplary, or consequential damages (including, but not
+ limited to, procurement of substitute goods or services; loss of use, data,
+ or profits; or business interruption) however caused and on any theory of
+ liability, whether in contract, strict liability, or tort (including
+ negligence or otherwise) arising in any way out of the use of the Work, even
+ if advised of the possibility of such damage.
+
+3. Affirmer disclaims responsibility for clearing rights of other persons that
+ may apply to the Work or any use thereof, including without limitation any
+ person's Copyright and Related Rights in the Work. Further, Affirmer
+ disclaims responsibility for obtaining any necessary consents, permissions or
+ other rights required for any use of the Work.
