35                    GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
36                       Version 3, 29 June 2007
37
38 Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc. <http://fsf.org/>
39 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
40 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
41
42                            Preamble
43
44  The GNU General Public License is a free, copyleft license for
45software and other kinds of works.
46
47  The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed
48to take away your freedom to share and change the works.  By contrast,
49the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to
50share and change all versions of a program--to make sure it remains free
51software for all its users.  We, the Free Software Foundation, use the
52GNU General Public License for most of our software; it applies also to
53any other work released this way by its authors.  You can apply it to
54your programs, too.
55
56  When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
57price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
58have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
59them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you
60want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new
61free programs, and that you know you can do these things.
62
63  To protect your rights, we need to prevent others from denying you
64these rights or asking you to surrender the rights.  Therefore, you have
65certain responsibilities if you distribute copies of the software, or if
66you modify it: responsibilities to respect the freedom of others.
67
68  For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
69gratis or for a fee, you must pass on to the recipients the same
70freedoms that you received.  You must make sure that they, too, receive
71or can get the source code.  And you must show them these terms so they
72know their rights.
73
74  Developers that use the GNU GPL protect your rights with two steps:
75(1) assert copyright on the software, and (2) offer you this License
76giving you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify it.
77
78  For the developers' and authors' protection, the GPL clearly explains
79that there is no warranty for this free software.  For both users' and
80authors' sake, the GPL requires that modified versions be marked as
81changed, so that their problems will not be attributed erroneously to
82authors of previous versions.
83
84  Some devices are designed to deny users access to install or run
85modified versions of the software inside them, although the manufacturer
86can do so.  This is fundamentally incompatible with the aim of
87protecting users' freedom to change the software.  The systematic
88pattern of such abuse occurs in the area of products for individuals to
89use, which is precisely where it is most unacceptable.  Therefore, we
90have designed this version of the GPL to prohibit the practice for those
91products.  If such problems arise substantially in other domains, we
92stand ready to extend this provision to those domains in future versions
93of the GPL, as needed to protect the freedom of users.
94
95  Finally, every program is threatened constantly by software patents.
96States should not allow patents to restrict development and use of
97software on general-purpose computers, but in those that do, we wish to
98avoid the special danger that patents applied to a free program could
99make it effectively proprietary.  To prevent this, the GPL assures that
100patents cannot be used to render the program non-free.
101
102  The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
103modification follow.
104
105                       TERMS AND CONDITIONS
106
107  0. Definitions.
108
109  "This License" refers to version 3 of the GNU General Public License.
110
111  "Copyright" also means copyright-like laws that apply to other kinds of
112works, such as semiconductor masks.
113
114  "The Program" refers to any copyrightable work licensed under this
115License.  Each licensee is addressed as "you".  "Licensees" and
116"recipients" may be individuals or organizations.
117
118  To "modify" a work means to copy from or adapt all or part of the work
119in a fashion requiring copyright permission, other than the making of an
120exact copy.  The resulting work is called a "modified version" of the
121earlier work or a work "based on" the earlier work.
122
123  A "covered work" means either the unmodified Program or a work based
124on the Program.
125
126  To "propagate" a work means to do anything with it that, without
127permission, would make you directly or secondarily liable for
128infringement under applicable copyright law, except executing it on a
129computer or modifying a private copy.  Propagation includes copying,
130distribution (with or without modification), making available to the
131public, and in some countries other activities as well.
132
133  To "convey" a work means any kind of propagation that enables other
134parties to make or receive copies.  Mere interaction with a user through
135a computer network, with no transfer of a copy, is not conveying.
136
137  An interactive user interface displays "Appropriate Legal Notices"
138to the extent that it includes a convenient and prominently visible
139feature that (1) displays an appropriate copyright notice, and (2)
140tells the user that there is no warranty for the work (except to the
141extent that warranties are provided), that licensees may convey the
142work under this License, and how to view a copy of this License.  If
143the interface presents a list of user commands or options, such as a
144menu, a prominent item in the list meets this criterion.
145
146  1. Source Code.
147
148  The "source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work
149for making modifications to it.  "Object code" means any non-source
150form of a work.
151
152  A "Standard Interface" means an interface that either is an official
153standard defined by a recognized standards body, or, in the case of
154interfaces specified for a particular programming language, one that
155is widely used among developers working in that language.
156
157  The "System Libraries" of an executable work include anything, other
158than the work as a whole, that (a) is included in the normal form of
159packaging a Major Component, but which is not part of that Major
160Component, and (b) serves only to enable use of the work with that
161Major Component, or to implement a Standard Interface for which an
162implementation is available to the public in source code form.  A
163"Major Component", in this context, means a major essential component
164(kernel, window system, and so on) of the specific operating system
165(if any) on which the executable work runs, or a compiler used to
166produce the work, or an object code interpreter used to run it.
167
168  The "Corresponding Source" for a work in object code form means all
169the source code needed to generate, install, and (for an executable
170work) run the object code and to modify the work, including scripts to
171control those activities.  However, it does not include the work's
172System Libraries, or general-purpose tools or generally available free
173programs which are used unmodified in performing those activities but
174which are not part of the work.  For example, Corresponding Source
175includes interface definition files associated with source files for
176the work, and the source code for shared libraries and dynamically
177linked subprograms that the work is specifically designed to require,
178such as by intimate data communication or control flow between those
179subprograms and other parts of the work.
180
181  The Corresponding Source need not include anything that users
182can regenerate automatically from other parts of the Corresponding
183Source.
184
185  The Corresponding Source for a work in source code form is that
186same work.
187
188  2. Basic Permissions.
189
190  All rights granted under this License are granted for the term of
191copyright on the Program, and are irrevocable provided the stated
192conditions are met.  This License explicitly affirms your unlimited
193permission to run the unmodified Program.  The output from running a
194covered work is covered by this License only if the output, given its
195content, constitutes a covered work.  This License acknowledges your
196rights of fair use or other equivalent, as provided by copyright law.
197
198  You may make, run and propagate covered works that you do not
199convey, without conditions so long as your license otherwise remains
200in force.  You may convey covered works to others for the sole purpose
201of having them make modifications exclusively for you, or provide you
202with facilities for running those works, provided that you comply with
203the terms of this License in conveying all material for which you do
204not control copyright.  Those thus making or running the covered works
205for you must do so exclusively on your behalf, under your direction
206and control, on terms that prohibit them from making any copies of
207your copyrighted material outside their relationship with you.
208
209  Conveying under any other circumstances is permitted solely under
210the conditions stated below.  Sublicensing is not allowed; section 10
211makes it unnecessary.
212
213  3. Protecting Users' Legal Rights From Anti-Circumvention Law.
214
215  No covered work shall be deemed part of an effective technological
216measure under any applicable law fulfilling obligations under article
21711 of the WIPO copyright treaty adopted on 20 December 1996, or
218similar laws prohibiting or restricting circumvention of such
219measures.
220
221  When you convey a covered work, you waive any legal power to forbid
222circumvention of technological measures to the extent such circumvention
223is effected by exercising rights under this License with respect to
224the covered work, and you disclaim any intention to limit operation or
225modification of the work as a means of enforcing, against the work's
226users, your or third parties' legal rights to forbid circumvention of
227technological measures.
228
229  4. Conveying Verbatim Copies.
230
231  You may convey verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you
232receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
233appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice;
234keep intact all notices stating that this License and any
235non-permissive terms added in accord with section 7 apply to the code;
236keep intact all notices of the absence of any warranty; and give all
237recipients a copy of this License along with the Program.
238
239  You may charge any price or no price for each copy that you convey,
240and you may offer support or warranty protection for a fee.
241
242  5. Conveying Modified Source Versions.
243
244  You may convey a work based on the Program, or the modifications to
245produce it from the Program, in the form of source code under the
246terms of section 4, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
247
248    a) The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified
249    it, and giving a relevant date.
250
251    b) The work must carry prominent notices stating that it is
252    released under this License and any conditions added under section
253    7.  This requirement modifies the requirement in section 4 to
254    "keep intact all notices".
255
256    c) You must license the entire work, as a whole, under this
257    License to anyone who comes into possession of a copy.  This
258    License will therefore apply, along with any applicable section 7
259    additional terms, to the whole of the work, and all its parts,
260    regardless of how they are packaged.  This License gives no
261    permission to license the work in any other way, but it does not
262    invalidate such permission if you have separately received it.
263
264    d) If the work has interactive user interfaces, each must display
265    Appropriate Legal Notices; however, if the Program has interactive
266    interfaces that do not display Appropriate Legal Notices, your
267    work need not make them do so.
268
269  A compilation of a covered work with other separate and independent
270works, which are not by their nature extensions of the covered work,
271and which are not combined with it such as to form a larger program,
272in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an
273"aggregate" if the compilation and its resulting copyright are not
274used to limit the access or legal rights of the compilation's users
275beyond what the individual works permit.  Inclusion of a covered work
276in an aggregate does not cause this License to apply to the other
277parts of the aggregate.
278
279  6. Conveying Non-Source Forms.
280
281  You may convey a covered work in object code form under the terms
282of sections 4 and 5, provided that you also convey the
283machine-readable Corresponding Source under the terms of this License,
284in one of these ways:
285
286    a) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
287    (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by the
288    Corresponding Source fixed on a durable physical medium
289    customarily used for software interchange.
290
291    b) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
292    (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by a
293    written offer, valid for at least three years and valid for as
294    long as you offer spare parts or customer support for that product
295    model, to give anyone who possesses the object code either (1) a
296    copy of the Corresponding Source for all the software in the
297    product that is covered by this License, on a durable physical
298    medium customarily used for software interchange, for a price no
299    more than your reasonable cost of physically performing this
300    conveying of source, or (2) access to copy the
301    Corresponding Source from a network server at no charge.
302
303    c) Convey individual copies of the object code with a copy of the
304    written offer to provide the Corresponding Source.  This
305    alternative is allowed only occasionally and noncommercially, and
306    only if you received the object code with such an offer, in accord
307    with subsection 6b.
308
309    d) Convey the object code by offering access from a designated
310    place (gratis or for a charge), and offer equivalent access to the
311    Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no
312    further charge.  You need not require recipients to copy the
313    Corresponding Source along with the object code.  If the place to
314    copy the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source
315    may be on a different server (operated by you or a third party)
316    that supports equivalent copying facilities, provided you maintain
317    clear directions next to the object code saying where to find the
318    Corresponding Source.  Regardless of what server hosts the
319    Corresponding Source, you remain obligated to ensure that it is
320    available for as long as needed to satisfy these requirements.
321
322    e) Convey the object code using peer-to-peer transmission, provided
323    you inform other peers where the object code and Corresponding
324    Source of the work are being offered to the general public at no
325    charge under subsection 6d.
326
327  A separable portion of the object code, whose source code is excluded
328from the Corresponding Source as a System Library, need not be
329included in conveying the object code work.
330
331  A "User Product" is either (1) a "consumer product", which means any
332tangible personal property which is normally used for personal, family,
333or household purposes, or (2) anything designed or sold for incorporation
334into a dwelling.  In determining whether a product is a consumer product,
335doubtful cases shall be resolved in favor of coverage.  For a particular
336product received by a particular user, "normally used" refers to a
337typical or common use of that class of product, regardless of the status
338of the particular user or of the way in which the particular user
339actually uses, or expects or is expected to use, the product.  A product
340is a consumer product regardless of whether the product has substantial
341commercial, industrial or non-consumer uses, unless such uses represent
342the only significant mode of use of the product.
343
344  "Installation Information" for a User Product means any methods,
345procedures, authorization keys, or other information required to install
346and execute modified versions of a covered work in that User Product from
347a modified version of its Corresponding Source.  The information must
348suffice to ensure that the continued functioning of the modified object
349code is in no case prevented or interfered with solely because
350modification has been made.
351
352  If you convey an object code work under this section in, or with, or
353specifically for use in, a User Product, and the conveying occurs as
354part of a transaction in which the right of possession and use of the
355User Product is transferred to the recipient in perpetuity or for a
356fixed term (regardless of how the transaction is characterized), the
357Corresponding Source conveyed under this section must be accompanied
358by the Installation Information.  But this requirement does not apply
359if neither you nor any third party retains the ability to install
360modified object code on the User Product (for example, the work has
361been installed in ROM).
362
363  The requirement to provide Installation Information does not include a
364requirement to continue to provide support service, warranty, or updates
365for a work that has been modified or installed by the recipient, or for
366the User Product in which it has been modified or installed.  Access to a
367network may be denied when the modification itself materially and
368adversely affects the operation of the network or violates the rules and
369protocols for communication across the network.
370
371  Corresponding Source conveyed, and Installation Information provided,
372in accord with this section must be in a format that is publicly
373documented (and with an implementation available to the public in
374source code form), and must require no special password or key for
375unpacking, reading or copying.
376
377  7. Additional Terms.
378
379  "Additional permissions" are terms that supplement the terms of this
380License by making exceptions from one or more of its conditions.
381Additional permissions that are applicable to the entire Program shall
382be treated as though they were included in this License, to the extent
383that they are valid under applicable law.  If additional permissions
384apply only to part of the Program, that part may be used separately
385under those permissions, but the entire Program remains governed by
386this License without regard to the additional permissions.
387
388  When you convey a copy of a covered work, you may at your option
389remove any additional permissions from that copy, or from any part of
390it.  (Additional permissions may be written to require their own
391removal in certain cases when you modify the work.)  You may place
392additional permissions on material, added by you to a covered work,
393for which you have or can give appropriate copyright permission.
394
395  Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, for material you
396add to a covered work, you may (if authorized by the copyright holders of
397that material) supplement the terms of this License with terms:
398
399    a) Disclaiming warranty or limiting liability differently from the
400    terms of sections 15 and 16 of this License; or
401
402    b) Requiring preservation of specified reasonable legal notices or
403    author attributions in that material or in the Appropriate Legal
404    Notices displayed by works containing it; or
405
406    c) Prohibiting misrepresentation of the origin of that material, or
407    requiring that modified versions of such material be marked in
408    reasonable ways as different from the original version; or
409
410    d) Limiting the use for publicity purposes of names of licensors or
411    authors of the material; or
412
413    e) Declining to grant rights under trademark law for use of some
414    trade names, trademarks, or service marks; or
415
416    f) Requiring indemnification of licensors and authors of that
417    material by anyone who conveys the material (or modified versions of
418    it) with contractual assumptions of liability to the recipient, for
419    any liability that these contractual assumptions directly impose on
420    those licensors and authors.
421
422  All other non-permissive additional terms are considered "further
423restrictions" within the meaning of section 10.  If the Program as you
424received it, or any part of it, contains a notice stating that it is
425governed by this License along with a term that is a further
426restriction, you may remove that term.  If a license document contains
427a further restriction but permits relicensing or conveying under this
428License, you may add to a covered work material governed by the terms
429of that license document, provided that the further restriction does
430not survive such relicensing or conveying.
431
432  If you add terms to a covered work in accord with this section, you
433must place, in the relevant source files, a statement of the
434additional terms that apply to those files, or a notice indicating
435where to find the applicable terms.
436
437  Additional terms, permissive or non-permissive, may be stated in the
438form of a separately written license, or stated as exceptions;
439the above requirements apply either way.
440
441  8. Termination.
442
443  You may not propagate or modify a covered work except as expressly
444provided under this License.  Any attempt otherwise to propagate or
445modify it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under
446this License (including any patent licenses granted under the third
447paragraph of section 11).
448
449  However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your
450license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a)
451provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and
452finally terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright
453holder fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means
454prior to 60 days after the cessation.
455
456  Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is
457reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the
458violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you have
459received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that
460copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after
461your receipt of the notice.
462
463  Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the
464licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under
465this License.  If your rights have been terminated and not permanently
466reinstated, you do not qualify to receive new licenses for the same
467material under section 10.
468
469  9. Acceptance Not Required for Having Copies.
470
471  You are not required to accept this License in order to receive or
472run a copy of the Program.  Ancillary propagation of a covered work
473occurring solely as a consequence of using peer-to-peer transmission
474to receive a copy likewise does not require acceptance.  However,
475nothing other than this License grants you permission to propagate or
476modify any covered work.  These actions infringe copyright if you do
477not accept this License.  Therefore, by modifying or propagating a
478covered work, you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so.
479
480  10. Automatic Licensing of Downstream Recipients.
481
482  Each time you convey a covered work, the recipient automatically
483receives a license from the original licensors, to run, modify and
484propagate that work, subject to this License.  You are not responsible
485for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License.
486
487  An "entity transaction" is a transaction transferring control of an
488organization, or substantially all assets of one, or subdividing an
489organization, or merging organizations.  If propagation of a covered
490work results from an entity transaction, each party to that
491transaction who receives a copy of the work also receives whatever
492licenses to the work the party's predecessor in interest had or could
493give under the previous paragraph, plus a right to possession of the
494Corresponding Source of the work from the predecessor in interest, if
495the predecessor has it or can get it with reasonable efforts.
496
497  You may not impose any further restrictions on the exercise of the
498rights granted or affirmed under this License.  For example, you may
499not impose a license fee, royalty, or other charge for exercise of
500rights granted under this License, and you may not initiate litigation
501(including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that
502any patent claim is infringed by making, using, selling, offering for
503sale, or importing the Program or any portion of it.
504
505  11. Patents.
506
507  A "contributor" is a copyright holder who authorizes use under this
508License of the Program or a work on which the Program is based.  The
509work thus licensed is called the contributor's "contributor version".
510
511  A contributor's "essential patent claims" are all patent claims
512owned or controlled by the contributor, whether already acquired or
513hereafter acquired, that would be infringed by some manner, permitted
514by this License, of making, using, or selling its contributor version,
515but do not include claims that would be infringed only as a
516consequence of further modification of the contributor version.  For
517purposes of this definition, "control" includes the right to grant
518patent sublicenses in a manner consistent with the requirements of
519this License.
520
521  Each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free
522patent license under the contributor's essential patent claims, to
523make, use, sell, offer for sale, import and otherwise run, modify and
524propagate the contents of its contributor version.
525
526  In the following three paragraphs, a "patent license" is any express
527agreement or commitment, however denominated, not to enforce a patent
528(such as an express permission to practice a patent or covenant not to
529sue for patent infringement).  To "grant" such a patent license to a
530party means to make such an agreement or commitment not to enforce a
531patent against the party.
532
533  If you convey a covered work, knowingly relying on a patent license,
534and the Corresponding Source of the work is not available for anyone
535to copy, free of charge and under the terms of this License, through a
536publicly available network server or other readily accessible means,
537then you must either (1) cause the Corresponding Source to be so
538available, or (2) arrange to deprive yourself of the benefit of the
539patent license for this particular work, or (3) arrange, in a manner
540consistent with the requirements of this License, to extend the patent
541license to downstream recipients.  "Knowingly relying" means you have
542actual knowledge that, but for the patent license, your conveying the
543covered work in a country, or your recipient's use of the covered work
544in a country, would infringe one or more identifiable patents in that
545country that you have reason to believe are valid.
546
547  If, pursuant to or in connection with a single transaction or
548arrangement, you convey, or propagate by procuring conveyance of, a
549covered work, and grant a patent license to some of the parties
550receiving the covered work authorizing them to use, propagate, modify
551or convey a specific copy of the covered work, then the patent license
552you grant is automatically extended to all recipients of the covered
553work and works based on it.
554
555  A patent license is "discriminatory" if it does not include within
556the scope of its coverage, prohibits the exercise of, or is
557conditioned on the non-exercise of one or more of the rights that are
558specifically granted under this License.  You may not convey a covered
559work if you are a party to an arrangement with a third party that is
560in the business of distributing software, under which you make payment
561to the third party based on the extent of your activity of conveying
562the work, and under which the third party grants, to any of the
563parties who would receive the covered work from you, a discriminatory
564patent license (a) in connection with copies of the covered work
565conveyed by you (or copies made from those copies), or (b) primarily
566for and in connection with specific products or compilations that
567contain the covered work, unless you entered into that arrangement,
568or that patent license was granted, prior to 28 March 2007.
569
570  Nothing in this License shall be construed as excluding or limiting
571any implied license or other defenses to infringement that may
572otherwise be available to you under applicable patent law.
573
574  12. No Surrender of Others' Freedom.
575
576  If conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
577otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
578excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot convey a
579covered work so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
580License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may
581not convey it at all.  For example, if you agree to terms that obligate you
582to collect a royalty for further conveying from those to whom you convey
583the Program, the only way you could satisfy both those terms and this
584License would be to refrain entirely from conveying the Program.
585
586  13. Use with the GNU Affero General Public License.
587
588  Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, you have
589permission to link or combine any covered work with a work licensed
590under version 3 of the GNU Affero General Public License into a single
591combined work, and to convey the resulting work.  The terms of this
592License will continue to apply to the part which is the covered work,
593but the special requirements of the GNU Affero General Public License,
594section 13, concerning interaction through a network will apply to the
595combination as such.
596
597  14. Revised Versions of this License.
598
599  The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of
600the GNU General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
601be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
602address new problems or concerns.
603
604  Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the
605Program specifies that a certain numbered version of the GNU General
606Public License "or any later version" applies to it, you have the
607option of following the terms and conditions either of that numbered
608version or of any later version published by the Free Software
609Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of the
610GNU General Public License, you may choose any version ever published
611by the Free Software Foundation.
612
613  If the Program specifies that a proxy can decide which future
614versions of the GNU General Public License can be used, that proxy's
615public statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you
616to choose that version for the Program.
617
618  Later license versions may give you additional or different
619permissions.  However, no additional obligations are imposed on any
620author or copyright holder as a result of your choosing to follow a
621later version.
622
623  15. Disclaimer of Warranty.
624
625  THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY
626APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT
627HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY
628OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO,
629THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
630PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM
631IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF
632ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
633
634  16. Limitation of Liability.
635
636  IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
637WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MODIFIES AND/OR CONVEYS
638THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY
639GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE
640USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF
641DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD
642PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS),
643EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF
644SUCH DAMAGES.
645
646  17. Interpretation of Sections 15 and 16.
647
648  If the disclaimer of warranty and limitation of liability provided
649above cannot be given local legal effect according to their terms,
650reviewing courts shall apply local law that most closely approximates
651an absolute waiver of all civil liability in connection with the
652Program, unless a warranty or assumption of liability accompanies a
653copy of the Program in return for a fee.
654
655                     END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
656
657            How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
658
659  If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
660possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
661free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
662
663  To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest
664to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
665state the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
666the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
667
668    <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
669    Copyright (C) <year>  <name of author>
670
671    This program is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify
672    it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
673    the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or
674    (at your option) any later version.
675
676    This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
677    but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
678    MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  See the
679    GNU General Public License for more details.
680
681    You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
682    along with this program.  If not, see <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>.
683
684Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
685
686  If the program does terminal interaction, make it output a short
687notice like this when it starts in an interactive mode:
688
689    <program>  Copyright (C) <year>  <name of author>
690    This program comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
691    This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
692    under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
693
694The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
695parts of the General Public License.  Of course, your program's commands
696might be different; for a GUI interface, you would use an "about box".
697
698  You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or school,
699if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if necessary.
700For more information on this, and how to apply and follow the GNU GPL, see
701<http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>.
702
703  The GNU General Public License does not permit incorporating your program
704into proprietary programs.  If your program is a subroutine library, you
705may consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with
706the library.  If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General
707Public License instead of this License.  But first, please read
708<http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/why-not-lgpl.html>.
