1. DEFINITIONS
ivan@1738
     8
ivan@1738
     9
"Contribution" means:
ivan@1738
    10
ivan@1738
    11
a) in the case of the initial Contributor, the initial code and documentation
ivan@1738
    12
distributed under this Agreement, and
ivan@1738
    13
ivan@1738
    14
b) in the case of each subsequent Contributor:
ivan@1738
    15
ivan@1738
    16
i) changes to the Program, and
ivan@1738
    17
ivan@1738
    18
ii) additions to the Program;
ivan@1738
    19
ivan@1738
    20
where such changes and/or additions to the Program originate from and are
ivan@1738
    21
distributed by that particular Contributor. A Contribution 'originates'
ivan@1738
    22
from a Contributor if it was added to the Program by such Contributor
ivan@1738
    23
itself or anyone acting on such Contributor's behalf. Contributions do not
ivan@1738
    24
include additions to the Program which: (i) are separate modules of software
ivan@1738
    25
distributed in conjunction with the Program under their own license agreement,
ivan@1738
    26
and (ii) are not derivative works of the Program.
ivan@1738
    27
ivan@1738
    28
"Contributor" means any person or entity that distributes the Program.
ivan@1738
    29
ivan@1738
    30
"Licensed Patents" mean patent claims licensable by a Contributor which are
ivan@1738
    31
necessarily infringed by the use or sale of its Contribution alone or when
ivan@1738
    32
combined with the Program.
ivan@1738
    33
ivan@1738
    34
"Program" means the Contributions distributed in accordance with this
ivan@1738
    35
Agreement.
ivan@1738
    36
ivan@1738
    37
"Recipient" means anyone who receives the Program under this Agreement,
ivan@1738
    38
including all Contributors.

2. GRANT OF RIGHTS
ivan@1738
    41
ivan@1738
    42
a) Subject to the terms of this Agreement, each Contributor hereby grants
ivan@1738
    43
Recipient a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free copyright license to
ivan@1738
    44
reproduce, prepare derivative works of, publicly display, publicly perform,
ivan@1738
    45
distribute and sublicense the Contribution of such Contributor, if any,
ivan@1738
    46
and such derivative works, in source code and object code form.
ivan@1738
    47
ivan@1738
    48
b) Subject to the terms of this Agreement, each Contributor hereby grants
ivan@1738
    49
Recipient a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free patent license under
ivan@1738
    50
Licensed Patents to make, use, sell, offer to sell, import and otherwise
ivan@1738
    51
transfer the Contribution of such Contributor, if any, in source code and
ivan@1738
    52
object code form. This patent license shall apply to the combination of the
ivan@1738
    53
Contribution and the Program if, at the time the Contribution is added by
ivan@1738
    54
the Contributor, such addition of the Contribution causes such combination
ivan@1738
    55
to be covered by the Licensed Patents. The patent license shall not apply
ivan@1738
    56
to any other combinations which include the Contribution. No hardware per
ivan@1738
    57
se is licensed hereunder.
ivan@1738
    58
ivan@1738
    59
c) Recipient understands that although each Contributor grants the licenses
ivan@1738
    60
to its Contributions set forth herein, no assurances are provided by any
ivan@1738
    61
Contributor that the Program does not infringe the patent or other intellectual
ivan@1738
    62
property rights of any other entity. Each Contributor disclaims any liability
ivan@1738
    63
to Recipient for claims brought by any other entity based on infringement of
ivan@1738
    64
intellectual property rights or otherwise. As a condition to exercising the
ivan@1738
    65
rights and licenses granted hereunder, each Recipient hereby assumes sole
ivan@1738
    66
responsibility to secure any other intellectual property rights needed,
ivan@1738
    67
if any. For example, if a third party patent license is required to allow
ivan@1738
    68
Recipient to distribute the Program, it is Recipient's responsibility to
ivan@1738
    69
acquire that license before distributing the Program.
ivan@1738
    70
ivan@1738
    71
d) Each Contributor represents that to its knowledge it has sufficient
ivan@1738
    72
copyright rights in its Contribution, if any, to grant the copyright license
ivan@1738
    73
set forth in this Agreement.
ivan@1738

3. REQUIREMENTS
ivan@1738
    76
ivan@1738
    77
A Contributor may choose to distribute the Program in object code form under
ivan@1738
    78
its own license agreement, provided that:
ivan@1738
    79
ivan@1738
    80
a) it complies with the terms and conditions of this Agreement; and
ivan@1738
    81
ivan@1738
    82
b) its license agreement:
ivan@1738
    83
ivan@1738
    84
i) effectively disclaims on behalf of all Contributors all warranties and
ivan@1738
    85
conditions, express and implied, including warranties or conditions of title
ivan@1738
    86
and non-infringement, and implied warranties or conditions of merchantability
ivan@1738
    87
and fitness for a particular purpose;
ivan@1738
    88
ivan@1738
    89
ii) effectively excludes on behalf of all Contributors all liability for
ivan@1738
    90
damages, including direct, indirect, special, incidental and consequential
ivan@1738
    91
damages, such as lost profits;
ivan@1738
    92
ivan@1738
    93
iii) states that any provisions which differ from this Agreement are offered
ivan@1738
    94
by that Contributor alone and not by any other party; and
ivan@1738
    95
ivan@1738
    96
iv) states that source code for the Program is available from such Contributor,
ivan@1738
    97
and informs licensees how to obtain it in a reasonable manner on or through
ivan@1738
    98
a medium customarily used for software exchange.
ivan@1738
    99
ivan@1738
   100
When the Program is made available in source code form:
ivan@1738
   101
ivan@1738
   102
a) it must be made available under this Agreement; and
ivan@1738
   103
ivan@1738
   104
b) a copy of this Agreement must be included with each copy of the Program.
ivan@1738
   105
ivan@1738
   106
Contributors may not remove or alter any copyright notices contained within
ivan@1738
   107
the Program.
ivan@1738
   108
ivan@1738
   109
Each Contributor must identify itself as the originator of its Contribution,
ivan@1738
   110
if any, in a manner that reasonably allows subsequent Recipients to identify
ivan@1738
   111
the originator of the Contribution.
ivan@1738
   112
ivan@1738
   113
4. COMMERCIAL DISTRIBUTION
ivan@1738
   114
ivan@1738
   115
Commercial distributors of software may accept certain responsibilities
ivan@1738
   116
with respect to end users, business partners and the like. While this
ivan@1738
   117
license is intended to facilitate the commercial use of the Program,
ivan@1738
   118
the Contributor who includes the Program in a commercial product offering
ivan@1738
   119
should do so in a manner which does not create potential liability for other
ivan@1738
   120
Contributors. Therefore, if a Contributor includes the Program in a commercial
ivan@1738
   121
product offering, such Contributor ("Commercial Contributor") hereby agrees
ivan@1738
   122
to defend and indemnify every other Contributor ("Indemnified Contributor")
ivan@1738
   123
against any losses, damages and costs (collectively "Losses") arising from
ivan@1738
   124
claims, lawsuits and other legal actions brought by a third party against the
ivan@1738
   125
Indemnified Contributor to the extent caused by the acts or omissions of such
ivan@1738
   126
Commercial Contributor in connection with its distribution of the Program
ivan@1738
   127
in a commercial product offering. The obligations in this section do not
ivan@1738
   128
apply to any claims or Losses relating to any actual or alleged intellectual
ivan@1738
   129
property infringement. In order to qualify, an Indemnified Contributor must:
ivan@1738
   130
a) promptly notify the Commercial Contributor in writing of such claim, and b)
ivan@1738
   131
allow the Commercial Contributor to control, and cooperate with the Commercial
ivan@1738
   132
Contributor in, the defense and any related settlement negotiations. The
ivan@1738
   133
Indemnified Contributor may participate in any such claim at its own expense.
ivan@1738
   134
ivan@1738
   135
For example, a Contributor might include the Program in a commercial product
ivan@1738
   136
offering, Product X. That Contributor is then a Commercial Contributor. If
ivan@1738
   137
that Commercial Contributor then makes performance claims, or offers
ivan@1738
   138
warranties related to Product X, those performance claims and warranties
ivan@1738
   139
are such Commercial Contributor's responsibility alone. Under this section,
ivan@1738
   140
the Commercial Contributor would have to defend claims against the other
ivan@1738
   141
Contributors related to those performance claims and warranties, and if a
ivan@1738
   142
court requires any other Contributor to pay any damages as a result, the
ivan@1738
   143
Commercial Contributor must pay those damages.
ivan@1738
   144
ivan@1738
   145
5. NO WARRANTY
ivan@1738
   146
ivan@1738

ivan@1738
   148
"AS IS" BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR
ivan@1738
   149
IMPLIED INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF TITLE,
ivan@1738
   150
NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. Each
ivan@1738
   151
Recipient is solely responsible for determining the appropriateness of using
ivan@1738
   152
and distributing the Program and assumes all risks associated with its exercise
ivan@1738
   153
of rights under this Agreement , including but not limited to the risks and
ivan@1738
   154
costs of program errors, compliance with applicable laws, damage to or loss of
ivan@1738
   155
data, programs or equipment, and unavailability or interruption of operations.

   157
6. DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY
ivan@1738
   158
ivan@1738
   159
EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, NEITHER RECIPIENT NOR ANY
ivan@1738
   160
CONTRIBUTORS SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL,
ivan@1738
   161
SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION LOST
ivan@1738
   162
PROFITS), HOWEVER CAUSED AND ON ANY THEORY OF LIABILITY, WHETHER IN CONTRACT,
ivan@1738
   163
STRICT LIABILITY, OR TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE) ARISING IN
ivan@1738
   164
ANY WAY OUT OF THE USE OR DISTRIBUTION OF THE PROGRAM OR THE EXERCISE OF ANY
ivan@1738
   165
RIGHTS GRANTED HEREUNDER, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

7. GENERAL
ivan@1738
   168
ivan@1738
   169
If any provision of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable under applicable
ivan@1738
   170
law, it shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remainder
ivan@1738
   171
of the terms of this Agreement, and without further action by the parties
ivan@1738
   172
hereto, such provision shall be reformed to the minimum extent necessary to
ivan@1738
   173
make such provision valid and enforceable.
ivan@1738
   174
ivan@1738
   175
If Recipient institutes patent litigation against any entity (including a
ivan@1738
   176
cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that the Program itself
ivan@1738
   177
(excluding combinations of the Program with other software or hardware)
ivan@1738
   178
infringes such Recipient's patent(s), then such Recipient's rights granted
ivan@1738
   179
under Section 2(b) shall terminate as of the date such litigation is filed.
ivan@1738
   180
ivan@1738
   181
All Recipient's rights under this Agreement shall terminate if it fails to
ivan@1738
   182
comply with any of the material terms or conditions of this Agreement and
ivan@1738
   183
does not cure such failure in a reasonable period of time after becoming
ivan@1738
   184
aware of such noncompliance. If all Recipient's rights under this Agreement
ivan@1738
   185
terminate, Recipient agrees to cease use and distribution of the Program
ivan@1738
   186
as soon as reasonably practicable. However, Recipient's obligations under
ivan@1738
   187
this Agreement and any licenses granted by Recipient relating to the Program
ivan@1738
   188
shall continue and survive.
ivan@1738
   189
ivan@1738
   190
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute copies of this Agreement, but

ivan@1738
   197
a suitable separate entity. Each new version of the Agreement will be given
ivan@1738
   198
a distinguishing version number. The Program (including Contributions) may
ivan@1738
   199

ivan@1738
   200
was received. In addition, after a new version of the Agreement is published,
ivan@1738
   201
Contributor may elect to distribute the Program (including its Contributions)
ivan@1738
   202
under the new version. Except as expressly stated in Sections 2(a) and 2(b)
ivan@1738
   203
above, Recipient receives no rights or licenses to the intellectual property

   206
this Agreement are reserved.

ivan@1738
   212
trial in any resulting litigation.
