## Preamble

The GNU Affero General Public License is a free, copyleft license for
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
13 14 15
software and other kinds of works, specifically designed to ensure
cooperation with the community in the case of network server software.

16
The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
17 18 19 20 21
to take away your freedom to share and change the works.  By contrast,
our General Public Licenses are intended to guarantee your freedom to
share and change all versions of a program--to make sure it remains free
software for all its users.

22
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
23 24 25 26 27 28
price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you
want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new
free programs, and that you know you can do these things.

29 30
Developers that use our General Public Licenses protect your rights
with two steps: **(1)** assert copyright on the software, and **(2)** offer
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
31 32 33
you this License which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute
and/or modify the software.

34
A secondary benefit of defending all users' freedom is that
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43
improvements made in alternate versions of the program, if they
receive widespread use, become available for other developers to
incorporate.  Many developers of free software are heartened and
encouraged by the resulting cooperation.  However, in the case of
software used on network servers, this result may fail to come about.
The GNU General Public License permits making a modified version and
letting the public access it on a server without ever releasing its
source code to the public.

44
The GNU Affero General Public License is designed specifically to
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
45 46 47 48 49 50 51
ensure that, in such cases, the modified source code becomes available
to the community.  It requires the operator of a network server to
provide the source code of the modified version running there to the
users of that server.  Therefore, public use of a modified version, on
a publicly accessible server, gives the public access to the source
code of the modified version.

52
An older license, called the Affero General Public License and
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
53 54 55 56 57
published by Affero, was designed to accomplish similar goals.  This is
a different license, not a version of the Affero GPL, but Affero has
released a new version of the Affero GPL which permits relicensing under
this license.

58
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
David Thomas's avatar

59 60
modification follow.

## TERMS AND CONDITIONS
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
62

63
### 0. Definitions
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
64

65
“This License” refers to version 3 of the GNU Affero General Public License.
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
66

67
“Copyright” also means copyright-like laws that apply to other kinds of
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
68 69
works, such as semiconductor masks.

70 71 72
“The Program” refers to any copyrightable work licensed under this
License.  Each licensee is addressed as “you”.  “Licensees” and
“recipients” may be individuals or organizations.
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
73

74
To “modify” a work means to copy from or adapt all or part of the work
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
75
in a fashion requiring copyright permission, other than the making of an
76 77
exact copy.  The resulting work is called a “modified version” of the
earlier work or a work “based on” the earlier work.
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
78

79
A “covered work” means either the unmodified Program or a work based
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
80 81
on the Program.

82
To “propagate” a work means to do anything with it that, without
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
83 84 85 86 87 88
permission, would make you directly or secondarily liable for
infringement under applicable copyright law, except executing it on a
computer or modifying a private copy.  Propagation includes copying,
distribution (with or without modification), making available to the
public, and in some countries other activities as well.

89
To “convey” a work means any kind of propagation that enables other
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
90 91 92
parties to make or receive copies.  Mere interaction with a user through
a computer network, with no transfer of a copy, is not conveying.

93
An interactive user interface displays “Appropriate Legal Notices”
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
94
to the extent that it includes a convenient and prominently visible
95
feature that **(1)** displays an appropriate copyright notice, and **(2)**
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
96 97 98 99 100 101
tells the user that there is no warranty for the work (except to the
extent that warranties are provided), that licensees may convey the
work under this License, and how to view a copy of this License.  If
the interface presents a list of user commands or options, such as a
menu, a prominent item in the list meets this criterion.

102
### 1. Source Code
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
103

104 105
The “source code” for a work means the preferred form of the work
for making modifications to it.  “Object code” means any non-source
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
106 107
form of a work.

108
A “Standard Interface” means an interface that either is an official
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
109 110 111 112
standard defined by a recognized standards body, or, in the case of
interfaces specified for a particular programming language, one that
is widely used among developers working in that language.

113 114
The “System Libraries” of an executable work include anything, other
than the work as a whole, that **(a)** is included in the normal form of
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
115
packaging a Major Component, but which is not part of that Major
116
Component, and **(b)** serves only to enable use of the work with that
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
117 118
Major Component, or to implement a Standard Interface for which an
implementation is available to the public in source code form.  A
119
“Major Component”, in this context, means a major essential component
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
120 121 122 123
(kernel, window system, and so on) of the specific operating system
(if any) on which the executable work runs, or a compiler used to
produce the work, or an object code interpreter used to run it.

124
The “Corresponding Source” for a work in object code form means all
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
125 126 127 128 129 130 131 132 133 134 135 136
the source code needed to generate, install, and (for an executable
work) run the object code and to modify the work, including scripts to
control those activities.  However, it does not include the work's
System Libraries, or general-purpose tools or generally available free
programs which are used unmodified in performing those activities but
which are not part of the work.  For example, Corresponding Source
includes interface definition files associated with source files for
the work, and the source code for shared libraries and dynamically
linked subprograms that the work is specifically designed to require,
such as by intimate data communication or control flow between those
subprograms and other parts of the work.

137
The Corresponding Source need not include anything that users
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
138 139 140
can regenerate automatically from other parts of the Corresponding
Source.

141
The Corresponding Source for a work in source code form is that
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
142 143
same work.

144
### 2. Basic Permissions
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
145

146
All rights granted under this License are granted for the term of
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
147 148 149 150 151 152 153
copyright on the Program, and are irrevocable provided the stated
conditions are met.  This License explicitly affirms your unlimited
permission to run the unmodified Program.  The output from running a
covered work is covered by this License only if the output, given its
content, constitutes a covered work.  This License acknowledges your
rights of fair use or other equivalent, as provided by copyright law.

154
You may make, run and propagate covered works that you do not
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
155 156 157 158 159 160 161 162 163 164
convey, without conditions so long as your license otherwise remains
in force.  You may convey covered works to others for the sole purpose
of having them make modifications exclusively for you, or provide you
with facilities for running those works, provided that you comply with
the terms of this License in conveying all material for which you do
not control copyright.  Those thus making or running the covered works
for you must do so exclusively on your behalf, under your direction
and control, on terms that prohibit them from making any copies of
your copyrighted material outside their relationship with you.

165
Conveying under any other circumstances is permitted solely under
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
166 167 168
the conditions stated below.  Sublicensing is not allowed; section 10
makes it unnecessary.

169
### 3. Protecting Users' Legal Rights From Anti-Circumvention Law
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
170

171
No covered work shall be deemed part of an effective technological
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
172 173 174 175 176
measure under any applicable law fulfilling obligations under article
11 of the WIPO copyright treaty adopted on 20 December 1996, or
similar laws prohibiting or restricting circumvention of such
measures.

177
When you convey a covered work, you waive any legal power to forbid
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
178 179 180 181 182 183 184
circumvention of technological measures to the extent such circumvention
is effected by exercising rights under this License with respect to
the covered work, and you disclaim any intention to limit operation or
modification of the work as a means of enforcing, against the work's
users, your or third parties' legal rights to forbid circumvention of
technological measures.

185
### 4. Conveying Verbatim Copies
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
186

187
You may convey verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
188 189 190 191 192 193 194
receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice;
keep intact all notices stating that this License and any
non-permissive terms added in accord with section 7 apply to the code;
keep intact all notices of the absence of any warranty; and give all
recipients a copy of this License along with the Program.

195
You may charge any price or no price for each copy that you convey,
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
196 197
and you may offer support or warranty protection for a fee.

198
### 5. Conveying Modified Source Versions
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
199

200
You may convey a work based on the Program, or the modifications to
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
201 202 203
produce it from the Program, in the form of source code under the
terms of section 4, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:

204 205 206 207 208 209 210 211 212 213 214 215 216 217 218 219 220 221 222
* **a)** The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified
it, and giving a relevant date.
* **b)** The work must carry prominent notices stating that it is
released under this License and any conditions added under section 7.
This requirement modifies the requirement in section 4 to
“keep intact all notices”.
* **c)** You must license the entire work, as a whole, under this
License to anyone who comes into possession of a copy.  This
License will therefore apply, along with any applicable section 7
additional terms, to the whole of the work, and all its parts,
regardless of how they are packaged.  This License gives no
permission to license the work in any other way, but it does not
invalidate such permission if you have separately received it.
* **d)** If the work has interactive user interfaces, each must display
Appropriate Legal Notices; however, if the Program has interactive
interfaces that do not display Appropriate Legal Notices, your
work need not make them do so.

A compilation of a covered work with other separate and independent
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
223 224 225
works, which are not by their nature extensions of the covered work,
and which are not combined with it such as to form a larger program,
in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an
226
“aggregate” if the compilation and its resulting copyright are not
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
227 228 229 230 231
used to limit the access or legal rights of the compilation's users
beyond what the individual works permit.  Inclusion of a covered work
in an aggregate does not cause this License to apply to the other
parts of the aggregate.

232
### 6. Conveying Non-Source Forms
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
233

234
You may convey a covered work in object code form under the terms
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
235 236 237 238
of sections 4 and 5, provided that you also convey the
machine-readable Corresponding Source under the terms of this License,
in one of these ways:

239 240 241 242 243 244 245 246 247 248 249 250 251 252 253 254 255 256 257 258 259 260 261 262 263 264 265 266 267 268 269 270 271 272 273 274 275 276
* **a)** Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
(including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by the
Corresponding Source fixed on a durable physical medium
customarily used for software interchange.
* **b)** Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
(including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by a
written offer, valid for at least three years and valid for as
long as you offer spare parts or customer support for that product
model, to give anyone who possesses the object code either **(1)** a
copy of the Corresponding Source for all the software in the
product that is covered by this License, on a durable physical
medium customarily used for software interchange, for a price no
more than your reasonable cost of physically performing this
conveying of source, or **(2)** access to copy the
Corresponding Source from a network server at no charge.
* **c)** Convey individual copies of the object code with a copy of the
written offer to provide the Corresponding Source.  This
alternative is allowed only occasionally and noncommercially, and
only if you received the object code with such an offer, in accord
with subsection 6b.
* **d)** Convey the object code by offering access from a designated
place (gratis or for a charge), and offer equivalent access to the
Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no
further charge.  You need not require recipients to copy the
Corresponding Source along with the object code.  If the place to
copy the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source
may be on a different server (operated by you or a third party)
that supports equivalent copying facilities, provided you maintain
clear directions next to the object code saying where to find the
Corresponding Source.  Regardless of what server hosts the
Corresponding Source, you remain obligated to ensure that it is
available for as long as needed to satisfy these requirements.
* **e)** Convey the object code using peer-to-peer transmission, provided
you inform other peers where the object code and Corresponding
Source of the work are being offered to the general public at no
charge under subsection 6d.

A separable portion of the object code, whose source code is excluded
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
277 278 279
from the Corresponding Source as a System Library, need not be
included in conveying the object code work.

280
A “User Product” is either **(1)** a “consumer product”, which means any
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
281
tangible personal property which is normally used for personal, family,
282
or household purposes, or **(2)** anything designed or sold for incorporation
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
283 284
into a dwelling.  In determining whether a product is a consumer product,
doubtful cases shall be resolved in favor of coverage.  For a particular
285
product received by a particular user, “normally used” refers to a
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
286 287 288 289 290 291 292
typical or common use of that class of product, regardless of the status
of the particular user or of the way in which the particular user
actually uses, or expects or is expected to use, the product.  A product
is a consumer product regardless of whether the product has substantial
commercial, industrial or non-consumer uses, unless such uses represent
the only significant mode of use of the product.

293
“Installation Information” for a User Product means any methods,
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
294 295 296 297 298 299 300
procedures, authorization keys, or other information required to install
and execute modified versions of a covered work in that User Product from
a modified version of its Corresponding Source.  The information must
suffice to ensure that the continued functioning of the modified object
code is in no case prevented or interfered with solely because
modification has been made.

301
If you convey an object code work under this section in, or with, or
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
302 303 304 305 306 307 308 309 310 311
specifically for use in, a User Product, and the conveying occurs as
part of a transaction in which the right of possession and use of the
User Product is transferred to the recipient in perpetuity or for a
fixed term (regardless of how the transaction is characterized), the
Corresponding Source conveyed under this section must be accompanied
by the Installation Information.  But this requirement does not apply
if neither you nor any third party retains the ability to install
modified object code on the User Product (for example, the work has
been installed in ROM).

312
The requirement to provide Installation Information does not include a
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
313 314 315 316 317 318 319
requirement to continue to provide support service, warranty, or updates
for a work that has been modified or installed by the recipient, or for
the User Product in which it has been modified or installed.  Access to a
network may be denied when the modification itself materially and
adversely affects the operation of the network or violates the rules and
protocols for communication across the network.

320
Corresponding Source conveyed, and Installation Information provided,
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
321 322 323 324 325
in accord with this section must be in a format that is publicly
documented (and with an implementation available to the public in
source code form), and must require no special password or key for
unpacking, reading or copying.

326
### 7. Additional Terms
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
327

328
“Additional permissions” are terms that supplement the terms of this
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
329 330 331 332 333 334 335 336
License by making exceptions from one or more of its conditions.
Additional permissions that are applicable to the entire Program shall
be treated as though they were included in this License, to the extent
that they are valid under applicable law.  If additional permissions
apply only to part of the Program, that part may be used separately
under those permissions, but the entire Program remains governed by
this License without regard to the additional permissions.

337
When you convey a copy of a covered work, you may at your option
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
338 339 340 341 342 343
remove any additional permissions from that copy, or from any part of
it.  (Additional permissions may be written to require their own
removal in certain cases when you modify the work.)  You may place
additional permissions on material, added by you to a covered work,
for which you have or can give appropriate copyright permission.

344
Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, for material you
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
345 346 347
add to a covered work, you may (if authorized by the copyright holders of
that material) supplement the terms of this License with terms:

348 349 350 351 352 353 354 355 356 357 358 359 360 361 362 363 364 365 366 367
* **a)** Disclaiming warranty or limiting liability differently from the
terms of sections 15 and 16 of this License; or
* **b)** Requiring preservation of specified reasonable legal notices or
author attributions in that material or in the Appropriate Legal
Notices displayed by works containing it; or
* **c)** Prohibiting misrepresentation of the origin of that material, or
requiring that modified versions of such material be marked in
reasonable ways as different from the original version; or
* **d)** Limiting the use for publicity purposes of names of licensors or
authors of the material; or
* **e)** Declining to grant rights under trademark law for use of some
trade names, trademarks, or service marks; or
* **f)** Requiring indemnification of licensors and authors of that
material by anyone who conveys the material (or modified versions of
it) with contractual assumptions of liability to the recipient, for
any liability that these contractual assumptions directly impose on
those licensors and authors.

All other non-permissive additional terms are considered “further
restrictions” within the meaning of section 10.  If the Program as you
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
368 369 370 371 372 373 374 375
received it, or any part of it, contains a notice stating that it is
governed by this License along with a term that is a further
restriction, you may remove that term.  If a license document contains
a further restriction but permits relicensing or conveying under this
License, you may add to a covered work material governed by the terms
of that license document, provided that the further restriction does
not survive such relicensing or conveying.

376
If you add terms to a covered work in accord with this section, you
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
377 378 379 380
must place, in the relevant source files, a statement of the
additional terms that apply to those files, or a notice indicating
where to find the applicable terms.

381
Additional terms, permissive or non-permissive, may be stated in the
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
382 383 384
form of a separately written license, or stated as exceptions;
the above requirements apply either way.

385
### 8. Termination
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
386

387
You may not propagate or modify a covered work except as expressly
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
388 389 390 391 392
provided under this License.  Any attempt otherwise to propagate or
modify it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under
this License (including any patent licenses granted under the third
paragraph of section 11).

393 394
However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your
license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated **(a)**
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
395
provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and
396
finally terminates your license, and **(b)** permanently, if the copyright
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
397 398 399
holder fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means
prior to 60 days after the cessation.

400
Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
401 402 403 404 405 406
reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the
violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you have
received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that
copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after
your receipt of the notice.

407
Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
408 409 410 411 412
licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under
this License.  If your rights have been terminated and not permanently
reinstated, you do not qualify to receive new licenses for the same
material under section 10.

413
### 9. Acceptance Not Required for Having Copies
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
414

415
You are not required to accept this License in order to receive or
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
416 417 418 419 420 421 422 423
run a copy of the Program.  Ancillary propagation of a covered work
occurring solely as a consequence of using peer-to-peer transmission
to receive a copy likewise does not require acceptance.  However,
nothing other than this License grants you permission to propagate or
modify any covered work.  These actions infringe copyright if you do
not accept this License.  Therefore, by modifying or propagating a
covered work, you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so.

424
### 10. Automatic Licensing of Downstream Recipients
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
425

426
Each time you convey a covered work, the recipient automatically
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
427 428 429 430
receives a license from the original licensors, to run, modify and
propagate that work, subject to this License.  You are not responsible
for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License.

431
An “entity transaction” is a transaction transferring control of an
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
432 433 434 435 436 437 438 439 440
organization, or substantially all assets of one, or subdividing an
organization, or merging organizations.  If propagation of a covered
work results from an entity transaction, each party to that
transaction who receives a copy of the work also receives whatever
licenses to the work the party's predecessor in interest had or could
give under the previous paragraph, plus a right to possession of the
Corresponding Source of the work from the predecessor in interest, if
the predecessor has it or can get it with reasonable efforts.

441
You may not impose any further restrictions on the exercise of the
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
442 443 444 445 446 447 448
rights granted or affirmed under this License.  For example, you may
not impose a license fee, royalty, or other charge for exercise of
rights granted under this License, and you may not initiate litigation
(including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that
any patent claim is infringed by making, using, selling, offering for
sale, or importing the Program or any portion of it.

451
A “contributor” is a copyright holder who authorizes use under this
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
452
License of the Program or a work on which the Program is based.  The
453
work thus licensed is called the contributor's “contributor version”.
David Thomas's avatar

454

455
A contributor's “essential patent claims” are all patent claims
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
456 457 458 459 460
owned or controlled by the contributor, whether already acquired or
hereafter acquired, that would be infringed by some manner, permitted
by this License, of making, using, or selling its contributor version,
but do not include claims that would be infringed only as a
consequence of further modification of the contributor version.  For
461
purposes of this definition, “control” includes the right to grant
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
462 463 464
patent sublicenses in a manner consistent with the requirements of
this License.

465
Each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
466 467 468 469
patent license under the contributor's essential patent claims, to
make, use, sell, offer for sale, import and otherwise run, modify and
propagate the contents of its contributor version.

470
In the following three paragraphs, a “patent license” is any express
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
471 472
agreement or commitment, however denominated, not to enforce a patent
(such as an express permission to practice a patent or covenant not to
473
sue for patent infringement).  To “grant” such a patent license to a
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
474 475 476
party means to make such an agreement or commitment not to enforce a
patent against the party.

477
If you convey a covered work, knowingly relying on a patent license,
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
478 479 480
and the Corresponding Source of the work is not available for anyone
to copy, free of charge and under the terms of this License, through a
publicly available network server or other readily accessible means,
481 482 483
then you must either **(1)** cause the Corresponding Source to be so
available, or **(2)** arrange to deprive yourself of the benefit of the
patent license for this particular work, or **(3)** arrange, in a manner
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
484
consistent with the requirements of this License, to extend the patent
485
license to downstream recipients.  “Knowingly relying” means you have
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
486 487 488 489 490
actual knowledge that, but for the patent license, your conveying the
covered work in a country, or your recipient's use of the covered work
in a country, would infringe one or more identifiable patents in that
country that you have reason to believe are valid.

491
If, pursuant to or in connection with a single transaction or
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
492 493 494 495 496 497 498
arrangement, you convey, or propagate by procuring conveyance of, a
covered work, and grant a patent license to some of the parties
receiving the covered work authorizing them to use, propagate, modify
or convey a specific copy of the covered work, then the patent license
you grant is automatically extended to all recipients of the covered
work and works based on it.

499
A patent license is “discriminatory” if it does not include within
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
500 501 502 503 504 505 506 507
the scope of its coverage, prohibits the exercise of, or is
conditioned on the non-exercise of one or more of the rights that are
specifically granted under this License.  You may not convey a covered
work if you are a party to an arrangement with a third party that is
in the business of distributing software, under which you make payment
to the third party based on the extent of your activity of conveying
the work, and under which the third party grants, to any of the
parties who would receive the covered work from you, a discriminatory
508 509
patent license **(a)** in connection with copies of the covered work
conveyed by you (or copies made from those copies), or **(b)** primarily
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
510 511 512 513
for and in connection with specific products or compilations that
contain the covered work, unless you entered into that arrangement,
or that patent license was granted, prior to 28 March 2007.

514
Nothing in this License shall be construed as excluding or limiting
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
515 516 517
any implied license or other defenses to infringement that may
otherwise be available to you under applicable patent law.

518
### 12. No Surrender of Others' Freedom
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
519

520
If conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
521 522 523 524 525 526 527 528 529
otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot convey a
covered work so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may
not convey it at all.  For example, if you agree to terms that obligate you
to collect a royalty for further conveying from those to whom you convey
the Program, the only way you could satisfy both those terms and this
License would be to refrain entirely from conveying the Program.

### 13. Remote Network Interaction; Use with the GNU General Public License
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
531

532
Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, if you modify the
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
533 534 535 536 537 538 539 540 541 542
Program, your modified version must prominently offer all users
interacting with it remotely through a computer network (if your version
supports such interaction) an opportunity to receive the Corresponding
Source of your version by providing access to the Corresponding Source
from a network server at no charge, through some standard or customary
means of facilitating copying of software.  This Corresponding Source
shall include the Corresponding Source for any work covered by version 3
of the GNU General Public License that is incorporated pursuant to the
following paragraph.

543
Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, you have
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
544 545 546 547 548 549 550
permission to link or combine any covered work with a work licensed
under version 3 of the GNU General Public License into a single
combined work, and to convey the resulting work.  The terms of this
License will continue to apply to the part which is the covered work,
but the work with which it is combined will remain governed by version
3 of the GNU General Public License.

551
### 14. Revised Versions of this License
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
552

553
The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
554 555 556 557
the GNU Affero General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions
will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
address new problems or concerns.

558
Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
559
Program specifies that a certain numbered version of the GNU Affero General
560
Public License “or any later version” applies to it, you have the
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
561 562 563 564 565 566
option of following the terms and conditions either of that numbered
version or of any later version published by the Free Software
Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of the
GNU Affero General Public License, you may choose any version ever published
by the Free Software Foundation.

567
If the Program specifies that a proxy can decide which future
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
568 569 570 571
versions of the GNU Affero General Public License can be used, that proxy's
public statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you
to choose that version for the Program.

572
Later license versions may give you additional or different
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
573 574 575 576
permissions.  However, no additional obligations are imposed on any
author or copyright holder as a result of your choosing to follow a
later version.

577
### 15. Disclaimer of Warranty
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
578

579
THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
580
APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT
581
HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
582 583 584 585 586 587
OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO,
THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM
IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF
ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.

588
### 16. Limitation of Liability
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
589

590
IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
591 592 593 594 595 596 597 598 599
WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MODIFIES AND/OR CONVEYS
THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY
GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE
USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF
DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD
PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS),
EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF
SUCH DAMAGES.

### 17. Interpretation of Sections 15 and 16
David Thomas's avatar

601

602
If the disclaimer of warranty and limitation of liability provided
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
603 604 605 606 607 608
above cannot be given local legal effect according to their terms,
reviewing courts shall apply local law that most closely approximates
an absolute waiver of all civil liability in connection with the
Program, unless a warranty or assumption of liability accompanies a
copy of the Program in return for a fee.

## How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
612

613
If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
614 615 616
possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.

617
To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
618 619
to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
state the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
620
the “copyright” line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.

    <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
    Copyright (C) <year>  <name of author>

    This program is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify
    it under the terms of the GNU Affero General Public License as published by
    the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or
    (at your option) any later version.

    This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
    but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of

    You should have received a copy of the GNU Affero General Public License
    along with this program.  If not, see <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/>.

Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.

640
If your software can interact with users remotely through a computer
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
641 642
network, you should also make sure that it provides a way for users to
get its source.  For example, if your program is a web application, its
643
interface could display a “Source” link that leads users to an archive
David Thomas's avatar
David Thomas committed
644 645 646 647
of the code.  There are many ways you could offer source, and different
solutions will be better for different programs; see section 13 for the
specific requirements.

648 649
You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or school,
if any, to sign a “copyright disclaimer” for the program, if necessary.
