  4. The "Artistic License"
  5. Preamble
  6. The intent of this document is to state the conditions under which a
  7. Package may be copied, such that the Copyright Holder maintains some
  8. semblance of artistic control over the development of the package,
  9. while giving the users of the package the right to use and
  10. distribute the Package in a more-or-less customary fashion, plus the
  11. right to make reasonable modifications.
  12. Definitions:
  13. * "Package" refers to the collection of files distributed by the
  14. Copyright Holder, and derivatives of that collection of files
  15. created through textual modification.
  16. * "Standard Version" refers to such a Package if it has not been
  17. modified, or has been modified in accordance with the wishes of
  18. the Copyright Holder.
  19. * "Copyright Holder" is whoever is named in the copyright or
  20. copyrights for the package.
  21. * "You" is you, if you're thinking about copying or distributing
  22. this Package.
  23. * "Reasonable copying fee" is whatever you can justify on the
  24. basis of media cost, duplication charges, time of people
  25. involved, and so on. (You will not be required to justify it to
  26. the Copyright Holder, but only to the computing community at
  27. large as a market that must bear the fee.)
  28. * "Freely Available" means that no fee is charged for the item
  29. itself, though there may be fees involved in handling the item.
  30. It also means that recipients of the item may redistribute it
  31. under the same conditions they received it.
  32. 1. You may make and give away verbatim copies of the source form of
  33. the Standard Version of this Package without restriction, provided
  34. that you duplicate all of the original copyright notices and
  35. associated disclaimers.
  36. 2. You may apply bug fixes, portability fixes and other
  37. modifications derived from the Public Domain or from the Copyright
  38. Holder. A Package modified in such a way shall still be considered
  39. the Standard Version.
  40. 3. You may otherwise modify your copy of this Package in any way,
  41. provided that you insert a prominent notice in each changed file
  42. stating how and when you changed that file, and provided that you do
  43. at least ONE of the following:
  44. a) place your modifications in the Public Domain or
  45. otherwise make them Freely Available, such as by posting
  46. said modifications to Usenet or an equivalent medium, or
  47. placing the modifications on a major archive site such as
  48., or by allowing the Copyright Holder to include
  49. your modifications in the Standard Version of the Package.
  50. b) use the modified Package only within your corporation
  51. or organization.
  52. c) rename any non-standard executables so the names do not
  53. conflict with standard executables, which must also be
  54. provided, and provide a separate manual page for each
  55. non-standard executable that clearly documents how it
  56. differs from the Standard Version.
  57. d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright
  58. Holder.
  59. 4. You may distribute the programs of this Package in object code or
  60. executable form, provided that you do at least ONE of the following:
  61. a) distribute a Standard Version of the executables and
  62. library files, together with instructions (in the manual
  63. page or equivalent) on where to get the Standard Version.
  64. b) accompany the distribution with the machine-readable
  65. source of the Package with your modifications.
  66. c) accompany any non-standard executables with their
  67. corresponding Standard Version executables, giving the
  68. non-standard executables non-standard names, and clearly
  69. documenting the differences in manual pages (or
  70. equivalent), together with instructions on where to get
  71. the Standard Version.
  72. d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright
  73. Holder.
  74. 5. You may charge a reasonable copying fee for any distribution of
  75. this Package. You may charge any fee you choose for support of this
  76. Package. You may not charge a fee for this Package itself. However,
  77. you may distribute this Package in aggregate with other (possibly
  78. commercial) programs as part of a larger (possibly commercial)
  79. software distribution provided that you do not advertise this
  80. Package as a product of your own.
  81. 6. The scripts and library files supplied as input to or produced as
  82. output from the programs of this Package do not automatically fall
  83. under the copyright of this Package, but belong to whomever
  84. generated them, and may be sold commercially, and may be aggregated
  85. with this Package.
  86. 7. C or perl subroutines supplied by you and linked into this
  87. Package shall not be considered part of this Package.
  88. 8. The name of the Copyright Holder may not be used to endorse or
  89. promote products derived from this software without specific prior
  90. written permission.
  94. The End
