5                    GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
6                       Version 3, 29 June 2007
7
8 Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc. <http://fsf.org/>
9 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
10 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
11
12                            Preamble
13
14  The GNU General Public License is a free, copyleft license for
15software and other kinds of works.
16
17  The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed
18to take away your freedom to share and change the works.  By contrast,
19the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to
20share and change all versions of a program--to make sure it remains free
21software for all its users.  We, the Free Software Foundation, use the
22GNU General Public License for most of our software; it applies also to
23any other work released this way by its authors.  You can apply it to
24your programs, too.
25
26  When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
27price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
28have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
29them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you
30want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new
31free programs, and that you know you can do these things.
32
33  To protect your rights, we need to prevent others from denying you
34these rights or asking you to surrender the rights.  Therefore, you have
35certain responsibilities if you distribute copies of the software, or if
36you modify it: responsibilities to respect the freedom of others.
37
38  For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
39gratis or for a fee, you must pass on to the recipients the same
40freedoms that you received.  You must make sure that they, too, receive
41or can get the source code.  And you must show them these terms so they
42know their rights.
43
44  Developers that use the GNU GPL protect your rights with two steps:
45(1) assert copyright on the software, and (2) offer you this License
46giving you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify it.
47
48  For the developers' and authors' protection, the GPL clearly explains
49that there is no warranty for this free software.  For both users' and
50authors' sake, the GPL requires that modified versions be marked as
51changed, so that their problems will not be attributed erroneously to
52authors of previous versions.
53
54  Some devices are designed to deny users access to install or run
55modified versions of the software inside them, although the manufacturer
56can do so.  This is fundamentally incompatible with the aim of
57protecting users' freedom to change the software.  The systematic
58pattern of such abuse occurs in the area of products for individuals to
59use, which is precisely where it is most unacceptable.  Therefore, we
60have designed this version of the GPL to prohibit the practice for those
61products.  If such problems arise substantially in other domains, we
62stand ready to extend this provision to those domains in future versions
63of the GPL, as needed to protect the freedom of users.
64
65  Finally, every program is threatened constantly by software patents.
66States should not allow patents to restrict development and use of
67software on general-purpose computers, but in those that do, we wish to
68avoid the special danger that patents applied to a free program could
69make it effectively proprietary.  To prevent this, the GPL assures that
70patents cannot be used to render the program non-free.
71
72  The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
73modification follow.
74
75                       TERMS AND CONDITIONS
76
77  0. Definitions.
78
79  "This License" refers to version 3 of the GNU General Public License.
80
81  "Copyright" also means copyright-like laws that apply to other kinds of
82works, such as semiconductor masks.
83
84  "The Program" refers to any copyrightable work licensed under this
85License.  Each licensee is addressed as "you".  "Licensees" and
86"recipients" may be individuals or organizations.
87
88  To "modify" a work means to copy from or adapt all or part of the work
89in a fashion requiring copyright permission, other than the making of an
90exact copy.  The resulting work is called a "modified version" of the
91earlier work or a work "based on" the earlier work.
92
93  A "covered work" means either the unmodified Program or a work based
94on the Program.
95
96  To "propagate" a work means to do anything with it that, without
97permission, would make you directly or secondarily liable for
98infringement under applicable copyright law, except executing it on a
99computer or modifying a private copy.  Propagation includes copying,
100distribution (with or without modification), making available to the
101public, and in some countries other activities as well.
102
103  To "convey" a work means any kind of propagation that enables other
104parties to make or receive copies.  Mere interaction with a user through
105a computer network, with no transfer of a copy, is not conveying.
106
107  An interactive user interface displays "Appropriate Legal Notices"
108to the extent that it includes a convenient and prominently visible
109feature that (1) displays an appropriate copyright notice, and (2)
110tells the user that there is no warranty for the work (except to the
111extent that warranties are provided), that licensees may convey the
112work under this License, and how to view a copy of this License.  If
113the interface presents a list of user commands or options, such as a
114menu, a prominent item in the list meets this criterion.
115
116  1. Source Code.
117
118  The "source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work
119for making modifications to it.  "Object code" means any non-source
120form of a work.
121
122  A "Standard Interface" means an interface that either is an official
123standard defined by a recognized standards body, or, in the case of
124interfaces specified for a particular programming language, one that
125is widely used among developers working in that language.
126
127  The "System Libraries" of an executable work include anything, other
128than the work as a whole, that (a) is included in the normal form of
129packaging a Major Component, but which is not part of that Major
130Component, and (b) serves only to enable use of the work with that
131Major Component, or to implement a Standard Interface for which an
132implementation is available to the public in source code form.  A
133"Major Component", in this context, means a major essential component
134(kernel, window system, and so on) of the specific operating system
135(if any) on which the executable work runs, or a compiler used to
136produce the work, or an object code interpreter used to run it.
137
138  The "Corresponding Source" for a work in object code form means all
139the source code needed to generate, install, and (for an executable
140work) run the object code and to modify the work, including scripts to
141control those activities.  However, it does not include the work's
142System Libraries, or general-purpose tools or generally available free
143programs which are used unmodified in performing those activities but
144which are not part of the work.  For example, Corresponding Source
145includes interface definition files associated with source files for
146the work, and the source code for shared libraries and dynamically
147linked subprograms that the work is specifically designed to require,
148such as by intimate data communication or control flow between those
149subprograms and other parts of the work.
150
151  The Corresponding Source need not include anything that users
152can regenerate automatically from other parts of the Corresponding
153Source.
154
155  The Corresponding Source for a work in source code form is that
156same work.
157
158  2. Basic Permissions.
159
160  All rights granted under this License are granted for the term of
161copyright on the Program, and are irrevocable provided the stated
162conditions are met.  This License explicitly affirms your unlimited
163permission to run the unmodified Program.  The output from running a
164covered work is covered by this License only if the output, given its
165content, constitutes a covered work.  This License acknowledges your
166rights of fair use or other equivalent, as provided by copyright law.
167
168  You may make, run and propagate covered works that you do not
169convey, without conditions so long as your license otherwise remains
170in force.  You may convey covered works to others for the sole purpose
171of having them make modifications exclusively for you, or provide you
172with facilities for running those works, provided that you comply with
173the terms of this License in conveying all material for which you do
174not control copyright.  Those thus making or running the covered works
175for you must do so exclusively on your behalf, under your direction
176and control, on terms that prohibit them from making any copies of
177your copyrighted material outside their relationship with you.
178
179  Conveying under any other circumstances is permitted solely under
180the conditions stated below.  Sublicensing is not allowed; section 10
181makes it unnecessary.
182
183  3. Protecting Users' Legal Rights From Anti-Circumvention Law.
184
185  No covered work shall be deemed part of an effective technological
186measure under any applicable law fulfilling obligations under article
18711 of the WIPO copyright treaty adopted on 20 December 1996, or
188similar laws prohibiting or restricting circumvention of such
189measures.
190
191  When you convey a covered work, you waive any legal power to forbid
192circumvention of technological measures to the extent such circumvention
193is effected by exercising rights under this License with respect to
194the covered work, and you disclaim any intention to limit operation or
195modification of the work as a means of enforcing, against the work's
196users, your or third parties' legal rights to forbid circumvention of
197technological measures.
198
199  4. Conveying Verbatim Copies.
200
201  You may convey verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you
202receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
203appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice;
204keep intact all notices stating that this License and any
205non-permissive terms added in accord with section 7 apply to the code;
206keep intact all notices of the absence of any warranty; and give all
207recipients a copy of this License along with the Program.
208
209  You may charge any price or no price for each copy that you convey,
210and you may offer support or warranty protection for a fee.
211
212  5. Conveying Modified Source Versions.
213
214  You may convey a work based on the Program, or the modifications to
215produce it from the Program, in the form of source code under the
216terms of section 4, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
217
218    a) The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified
219    it, and giving a relevant date.
220
221    b) The work must carry prominent notices stating that it is
222    released under this License and any conditions added under section
223    7.  This requirement modifies the requirement in section 4 to
224    "keep intact all notices".
225
226    c) You must license the entire work, as a whole, under this
227    License to anyone who comes into possession of a copy.  This
228    License will therefore apply, along with any applicable section 7
229    additional terms, to the whole of the work, and all its parts,
230    regardless of how they are packaged.  This License gives no
231    permission to license the work in any other way, but it does not
232    invalidate such permission if you have separately received it.
233
234    d) If the work has interactive user interfaces, each must display
235    Appropriate Legal Notices; however, if the Program has interactive
236    interfaces that do not display Appropriate Legal Notices, your
237    work need not make them do so.
238
239  A compilation of a covered work with other separate and independent
240works, which are not by their nature extensions of the covered work,
241and which are not combined with it such as to form a larger program,
242in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an
243"aggregate" if the compilation and its resulting copyright are not
244used to limit the access or legal rights of the compilation's users
245beyond what the individual works permit.  Inclusion of a covered work
246in an aggregate does not cause this License to apply to the other
247parts of the aggregate.
248
249  6. Conveying Non-Source Forms.
250
251  You may convey a covered work in object code form under the terms
252of sections 4 and 5, provided that you also convey the
253machine-readable Corresponding Source under the terms of this License,
254in one of these ways:
255
256    a) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
257    (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by the
258    Corresponding Source fixed on a durable physical medium
259    customarily used for software interchange.
260
261    b) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
262    (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by a
263    written offer, valid for at least three years and valid for as
264    long as you offer spare parts or customer support for that product
265    model, to give anyone who possesses the object code either (1) a
266    copy of the Corresponding Source for all the software in the
267    product that is covered by this License, on a durable physical
268    medium customarily used for software interchange, for a price no
269    more than your reasonable cost of physically performing this
270    conveying of source, or (2) access to copy the
271    Corresponding Source from a network server at no charge.
272
273    c) Convey individual copies of the object code with a copy of the
274    written offer to provide the Corresponding Source.  This
275    alternative is allowed only occasionally and noncommercially, and
276    only if you received the object code with such an offer, in accord
277    with subsection 6b.
278
279    d) Convey the object code by offering access from a designated
280    place (gratis or for a charge), and offer equivalent access to the
281    Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no
282    further charge.  You need not require recipients to copy the
283    Corresponding Source along with the object code.  If the place to
284    copy the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source
285    may be on a different server (operated by you or a third party)
286    that supports equivalent copying facilities, provided you maintain
287    clear directions next to the object code saying where to find the
288    Corresponding Source.  Regardless of what server hosts the
289    Corresponding Source, you remain obligated to ensure that it is
290    available for as long as needed to satisfy these requirements.
291
292    e) Convey the object code using peer-to-peer transmission, provided
293    you inform other peers where the object code and Corresponding
294    Source of the work are being offered to the general public at no
295    charge under subsection 6d.
296
297  A separable portion of the object code, whose source code is excluded
298from the Corresponding Source as a System Library, need not be
299included in conveying the object code work.
300
301  A "User Product" is either (1) a "consumer product", which means any
302tangible personal property which is normally used for personal, family,
303or household purposes, or (2) anything designed or sold for incorporation
304into a dwelling.  In determining whether a product is a consumer product,
305doubtful cases shall be resolved in favor of coverage.  For a particular
306product received by a particular user, "normally used" refers to a
307typical or common use of that class of product, regardless of the status
308of the particular user or of the way in which the particular user
309actually uses, or expects or is expected to use, the product.  A product
310is a consumer product regardless of whether the product has substantial
311commercial, industrial or non-consumer uses, unless such uses represent
312the only significant mode of use of the product.
313
314  "Installation Information" for a User Product means any methods,
315procedures, authorization keys, or other information required to install
316and execute modified versions of a covered work in that User Product from
317a modified version of its Corresponding Source.  The information must
318suffice to ensure that the continued functioning of the modified object
319code is in no case prevented or interfered with solely because
320modification has been made.
321
322  If you convey an object code work under this section in, or with, or
323specifically for use in, a User Product, and the conveying occurs as
324part of a transaction in which the right of possession and use of the
325User Product is transferred to the recipient in perpetuity or for a
326fixed term (regardless of how the transaction is characterized), the
327Corresponding Source conveyed under this section must be accompanied
328by the Installation Information.  But this requirement does not apply
329if neither you nor any third party retains the ability to install
330modified object code on the User Product (for example, the work has
331been installed in ROM).
332
333  The requirement to provide Installation Information does not include a
334requirement to continue to provide support service, warranty, or updates
335for a work that has been modified or installed by the recipient, or for
336the User Product in which it has been modified or installed.  Access to a
337network may be denied when the modification itself materially and
338adversely affects the operation of the network or violates the rules and
339protocols for communication across the network.
340
341  Corresponding Source conveyed, and Installation Information provided,
342in accord with this section must be in a format that is publicly
343documented (and with an implementation available to the public in
344source code form), and must require no special password or key for
345unpacking, reading or copying.
346
347  7. Additional Terms.
348
349  "Additional permissions" are terms that supplement the terms of this
350License by making exceptions from one or more of its conditions.
351Additional permissions that are applicable to the entire Program shall
352be treated as though they were included in this License, to the extent
353that they are valid under applicable law.  If additional permissions
354apply only to part of the Program, that part may be used separately
355under those permissions, but the entire Program remains governed by
356this License without regard to the additional permissions.
357
358  When you convey a copy of a covered work, you may at your option
359remove any additional permissions from that copy, or from any part of
360it.  (Additional permissions may be written to require their own
361removal in certain cases when you modify the work.)  You may place
362additional permissions on material, added by you to a covered work,
363for which you have or can give appropriate copyright permission.
364
365  Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, for material you
366add to a covered work, you may (if authorized by the copyright holders of
367that material) supplement the terms of this License with terms:
368
369    a) Disclaiming warranty or limiting liability differently from the
370    terms of sections 15 and 16 of this License; or
371
372    b) Requiring preservation of specified reasonable legal notices or
373    author attributions in that material or in the Appropriate Legal
374    Notices displayed by works containing it; or
375
376    c) Prohibiting misrepresentation of the origin of that material, or
377    requiring that modified versions of such material be marked in
378    reasonable ways as different from the original version; or
379
380    d) Limiting the use for publicity purposes of names of licensors or
381    authors of the material; or
382
383    e) Declining to grant rights under trademark law for use of some
384    trade names, trademarks, or service marks; or
385
386    f) Requiring indemnification of licensors and authors of that
387    material by anyone who conveys the material (or modified versions of
388    it) with contractual assumptions of liability to the recipient, for
389    any liability that these contractual assumptions directly impose on
390    those licensors and authors.
391
392  All other non-permissive additional terms are considered "further
393restrictions" within the meaning of section 10.  If the Program as you
394received it, or any part of it, contains a notice stating that it is
395governed by this License along with a term that is a further
396restriction, you may remove that term.  If a license document contains
397a further restriction but permits relicensing or conveying under this
398License, you may add to a covered work material governed by the terms
399of that license document, provided that the further restriction does
400not survive such relicensing or conveying.
401
402  If you add terms to a covered work in accord with this section, you
403must place, in the relevant source files, a statement of the
404additional terms that apply to those files, or a notice indicating
405where to find the applicable terms.
406
407  Additional terms, permissive or non-permissive, may be stated in the
408form of a separately written license, or stated as exceptions;
409the above requirements apply either way.
410
411  8. Termination.
412
413  You may not propagate or modify a covered work except as expressly
414provided under this License.  Any attempt otherwise to propagate or
415modify it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under
416this License (including any patent licenses granted under the third
417paragraph of section 11).
418
419  However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your
420license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a)
421provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and
422finally terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright
423holder fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means
424prior to 60 days after the cessation.
425
426  Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is
427reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the
428violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you have
429received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that
430copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after
431your receipt of the notice.
432
433  Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the
434licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under
435this License.  If your rights have been terminated and not permanently
436reinstated, you do not qualify to receive new licenses for the same
437material under section 10.
438
439  9. Acceptance Not Required for Having Copies.
440
441  You are not required to accept this License in order to receive or
442run a copy of the Program.  Ancillary propagation of a covered work
443occurring solely as a consequence of using peer-to-peer transmission
444to receive a copy likewise does not require acceptance.  However,
445nothing other than this License grants you permission to propagate or
446modify any covered work.  These actions infringe copyright if you do
447not accept this License.  Therefore, by modifying or propagating a
448covered work, you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so.
449
450  10. Automatic Licensing of Downstream Recipients.
451
452  Each time you convey a covered work, the recipient automatically
453receives a license from the original licensors, to run, modify and
454propagate that work, subject to this License.  You are not responsible
455for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License.
456
457  An "entity transaction" is a transaction transferring control of an
458organization, or substantially all assets of one, or subdividing an
459organization, or merging organizations.  If propagation of a covered
460work results from an entity transaction, each party to that
461transaction who receives a copy of the work also receives whatever
462licenses to the work the party's predecessor in interest had or could
463give under the previous paragraph, plus a right to possession of the
464Corresponding Source of the work from the predecessor in interest, if
465the predecessor has it or can get it with reasonable efforts.
466
467  You may not impose any further restrictions on the exercise of the
468rights granted or affirmed under this License.  For example, you may
469not impose a license fee, royalty, or other charge for exercise of
470rights granted under this License, and you may not initiate litigation
471(including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that
472any patent claim is infringed by making, using, selling, offering for
473sale, or importing the Program or any portion of it.
474
475  11. Patents.
476
477  A "contributor" is a copyright holder who authorizes use under this
478License of the Program or a work on which the Program is based.  The
479work thus licensed is called the contributor's "contributor version".
480
481  A contributor's "essential patent claims" are all patent claims
482owned or controlled by the contributor, whether already acquired or
483hereafter acquired, that would be infringed by some manner, permitted
484by this License, of making, using, or selling its contributor version,
485but do not include claims that would be infringed only as a
486consequence of further modification of the contributor version.  For
487purposes of this definition, "control" includes the right to grant
488patent sublicenses in a manner consistent with the requirements of
489this License.
490
491  Each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free
492patent license under the contributor's essential patent claims, to
493make, use, sell, offer for sale, import and otherwise run, modify and
494propagate the contents of its contributor version.
495
496  In the following three paragraphs, a "patent license" is any express
497agreement or commitment, however denominated, not to enforce a patent
498(such as an express permission to practice a patent or covenant not to
499sue for patent infringement).  To "grant" such a patent license to a
500party means to make such an agreement or commitment not to enforce a
501patent against the party.
502
503  If you convey a covered work, knowingly relying on a patent license,
504and the Corresponding Source of the work is not available for anyone
505to copy, free of charge and under the terms of this License, through a
506publicly available network server or other readily accessible means,
507then you must either (1) cause the Corresponding Source to be so
508available, or (2) arrange to deprive yourself of the benefit of the
509patent license for this particular work, or (3) arrange, in a manner
510consistent with the requirements of this License, to extend the patent
511license to downstream recipients.  "Knowingly relying" means you have
512actual knowledge that, but for the patent license, your conveying the
513covered work in a country, or your recipient's use of the covered work
514in a country, would infringe one or more identifiable patents in that
515country that you have reason to believe are valid.
516
517  If, pursuant to or in connection with a single transaction or
518arrangement, you convey, or propagate by procuring conveyance of, a
519covered work, and grant a patent license to some of the parties
520receiving the covered work authorizing them to use, propagate, modify
521or convey a specific copy of the covered work, then the patent license
522you grant is automatically extended to all recipients of the covered
523work and works based on it.
524
525  A patent license is "discriminatory" if it does not include within
526the scope of its coverage, prohibits the exercise of, or is
527conditioned on the non-exercise of one or more of the rights that are
528specifically granted under this License.  You may not convey a covered
529work if you are a party to an arrangement with a third party that is
530in the business of distributing software, under which you make payment
531to the third party based on the extent of your activity of conveying
532the work, and under which the third party grants, to any of the
533parties who would receive the covered work from you, a discriminatory
534patent license (a) in connection with copies of the covered work
535conveyed by you (or copies made from those copies), or (b) primarily
536for and in connection with specific products or compilations that
537contain the covered work, unless you entered into that arrangement,
538or that patent license was granted, prior to 28 March 2007.
539
540  Nothing in this License shall be construed as excluding or limiting
541any implied license or other defenses to infringement that may
542otherwise be available to you under applicable patent law.
543
544  12. No Surrender of Others' Freedom.
545
546  If conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
547otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
548excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot convey a
549covered work so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
550License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may
551not convey it at all.  For example, if you agree to terms that obligate you
552to collect a royalty for further conveying from those to whom you convey
553the Program, the only way you could satisfy both those terms and this
554License would be to refrain entirely from conveying the Program.
555
556  13. Use with the GNU Affero General Public License.
557
558  Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, you have
559permission to link or combine any covered work with a work licensed
560under version 3 of the GNU Affero General Public License into a single
561combined work, and to convey the resulting work.  The terms of this
562License will continue to apply to the part which is the covered work,
563but the special requirements of the GNU Affero General Public License,
564section 13, concerning interaction through a network will apply to the
565combination as such.
566
567  14. Revised Versions of this License.
568
569  The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of
570the GNU General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
571be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
572address new problems or concerns.
573
574  Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the
575Program specifies that a certain numbered version of the GNU General
576Public License "or any later version" applies to it, you have the
577option of following the terms and conditions either of that numbered
578version or of any later version published by the Free Software
579Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of the
580GNU General Public License, you may choose any version ever published
581by the Free Software Foundation.
582
583  If the Program specifies that a proxy can decide which future
584versions of the GNU General Public License can be used, that proxy's
585public statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you
586to choose that version for the Program.
587
588  Later license versions may give you additional or different
589permissions.  However, no additional obligations are imposed on any
590author or copyright holder as a result of your choosing to follow a
591later version.
592
593  15. Disclaimer of Warranty.
594
595  THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY
596APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT
597HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY
598OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO,
599THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
600PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM
601IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF
602ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
603
604  16. Limitation of Liability.
605
606  IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
607WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MODIFIES AND/OR CONVEYS
608THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY
609GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE
610USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF
611DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD
612PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS),
613EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF
614SUCH DAMAGES.
615
616  17. Interpretation of Sections 15 and 16.
617
618  If the disclaimer of warranty and limitation of liability provided
619above cannot be given local legal effect according to their terms,
620reviewing courts shall apply local law that most closely approximates
621an absolute waiver of all civil liability in connection with the
622Program, unless a warranty or assumption of liability accompanies a
623copy of the Program in return for a fee.

627            How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
628
629  If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
630possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
631free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
632
633  To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest
634to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
635state the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
636the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
637
638    <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
639    Copyright (C) <year>  <name of author>
640
641    This program is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify
642    it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by
643    the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or
644    (at your option) any later version.
645
646    This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
647    but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
648    MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  See the
649    GNU General Public License for more details.
650
651    You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License
652    along with this program.  If not, see <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>.
653
654Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
655
656  If the program does terminal interaction, make it output a short
657notice like this when it starts in an interactive mode:
658
659    <program>  Copyright (C) <year>  <name of author>
660    This program comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY; for details type `show w'.
661    This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it
662    under certain conditions; type `show c' for details.
663
664The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate
665parts of the General Public License.  Of course, your program's commands
666might be different; for a GUI interface, you would use an "about box".
667
668  You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or school,
669if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if necessary.
670For more information on this, and how to apply and follow the GNU GPL, see
671<http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>.
672
673  The GNU General Public License does not permit incorporating your program
674into proprietary programs.  If your program is a subroutine library, you
675may consider it more useful to permit linking proprietary applications with
676the library.  If this is what you want to do, use the GNU Lesser General
677Public License instead of this License.  But first, please read
678<http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/why-not-lgpl.html>.
