Artis­tic Li­cense 2.0

Copy­right (c) 2000-2006, The Perl Foun­da­tion.

Every­one is per­mit­ted to copy and dis­tribute ver­ba­tim copies of this li­cense doc­u­ment, but chang­ing it is not al­lowed.

Pream­ble

This li­cense es­tab­lishes the terms un­der which a given free soft­ware Pack­age may be copied, mod­i­fied, dis­tributed, and/or re­dis­tributed. The in­tent is that the Copy­right Holder main­tains some artis­tic con­trol over the de­vel­op­ment of that Pack­age while still keep­ing the Pack­age avail­able as open source and free soft­ware.

You are al­ways per­mit­ted to make ar­range­ments wholly out­side of this li­cense di­rectly with the Copy­right Holder of a given Pack­age. If the terms of this li­cense do not per­mit the full use that you pro­pose to make of the Pack­age, you should con­tact the Copy­right Holder and seek a dif­fer­ent li­cens­ing ar­range­ment.

Def­i­ni­tions

“Copy­right Holder” means the in­di­vid­ual(s) or or­ga­ni­za­tion(s) named in the copy­right no­tice for the en­tire Pack­age.

“Con­trib­u­tor” means any party that has con­tributed code or other ma­te­rial to the Pack­age, in ac­cor­dance with the Copy­right Holder's pro­ce­dures.

“You” and “your” means any per­son who would like to copy, dis­tribute, or mod­ify the Pack­age.

“Pack­age” means the col­lec­tion of files dis­tributed by the Copy­right Holder, and deriva­tives of that col­lec­tion and/or of those files. A given Pack­age may con­sist of ei­ther the Stan­dard Ver­sion, or a Mod­i­fied Ver­sion.

“Distribute” means pro­vid­ing a copy of the Pack­age or mak­ing it ac­ces­si­ble to any­one else, or in the case of a com­pany or or­ga­ni­za­tion, to oth­ers out­side of your com­pany or or­ga­ni­za­tion.

“Distrib­u­tor Fee” means any fee that you charge for Distribut­ing this Pack­age or pro­vid­ing sup­port for this Pack­age to an­other party. It does not mean li­cens­ing fees.

“Stan­dard Ver­sion” refers to the Pack­age if it has not been mod­i­fied, or has been mod­i­fied only in ways ex­plic­itly re­quested by the Copy­right Holder.

“Mod­i­fied Ver­sion” means the Pack­age, if it has been changed, and such changes were not ex­plic­itly re­quested by the Copy­right Holder.

“Orig­i­nal Li­cense” means this Artis­tic Li­cense as Distributed with the Stan­dard Ver­sion of the Pack­age, in its cur­rent ver­sion or as it may be mod­i­fied by The Perl Foun­da­tion in the fu­ture.

“Source” form means the source code, doc­u­men­ta­tion source, and con­fig­u­ra­tion files for the Pack­age.

“Com­piled” form means the com­piled byte­code, ob­ject code, bi­nary, or any other form re­sult­ing from me­chan­i­cal trans­for­ma­tion or trans­la­tion of the Source form.

Per­mis­sion for Use and Mod­i­fi­ca­tion Without Distri­bu­tion

(1) You are per­mit­ted to use the Stan­dard Ver­sion and cre­ate and use Mod­i­fied Ver­sions for any pur­pose with­out re­stric­tion, pro­vided that you do not Distribute the Mod­i­fied Ver­sion.

Per­mis­sions for Redis­tri­bu­tion of the Stan­dard Ver­sion

(2) You may Distribute ver­ba­tim copies of the Source form of the Stan­dard Ver­sion of this Pack­age in any medium with­out re­stric­tion, ei­ther gratis or for a Distrib­u­tor Fee, pro­vided that you du­pli­cate all of the orig­i­nal copy­right no­tices and as­so­ci­ated dis­claimers. At your dis­cre­tion, such ver­ba­tim copies may or may not in­clude a Com­piled form of the Pack­age.

(3) You may ap­ply any bug fixes, porta­bil­ity changes, and other mod­i­fi­ca­tions made avail­able from the Copy­right Holder. The re­sult­ing Pack­age will still be con­sid­ered the Stan­dard Ver­sion, and as such will be sub­ject to the Orig­i­nal Li­cense.

Distri­bu­tion of Mod­i­fied Ver­sions of the Pack­age as Source

(4) You may Distribute your Mod­i­fied Ver­sion as Source (ei­ther gratis or for a Distrib­u­tor Fee, and with or with­out a Com­piled form of the Mod­i­fied Ver­sion) pro­vided that you clearly doc­u­ment how it dif­fers from the Stan­dard Ver­sion, in­clud­ing, but not lim­ited to, doc­u­ment­ing any non-stan­dard fea­tures, ex­e­cuta­bles, or mod­ules, and pro­vided that you do at least ONE of the fol­low­ing:

(a) make the Mod­i­fied Ver­sion avail­able to the Copy­right Holder of the Stan­dard Ver­sion, un­der the Orig­i­nal Li­cense, so that the Copy­right Holder may in­clude your mod­i­fi­ca­tions in the Stan­dard Ver­sion.

(b) en­sure that in­stal­la­tion of your Mod­i­fied Ver­sion does not pre­vent the user in­stalling or run­ning the Stan­dard Ver­sion. In ad­di­tion, the Mod­i­fied Ver­sion must bear a name that is dif­fer­ent from the name of the Stan­dard Ver­sion.

(c) al­low any­one who re­ceives a copy of the Mod­i­fied Ver­sion to make the Source form of the Mod­i­fied Ver­sion avail­able to oth­ers un­der

(i) the Orig­i­nal Li­cense or

(ii) a li­cense that per­mits the li­censee to freely copy, mod­ify and re­dis­tribute the Mod­i­fied Ver­sion us­ing the same li­cens­ing terms that ap­ply to the copy that the li­censee re­ceived, and re­quires that the Source form of the Mod­i­fied Ver­sion, and of any works de­rived from it, be made freely avail­able in that li­cense fees are pro­hib­ited but Distrib­u­tor Fees are al­lowed.

Distri­bu­tion of Com­piled Forms of the Stan­dard Ver­sion or Mod­i­fied Ver­sions with­out the Source

(5) You may Distribute Com­piled forms of the Stan­dard Ver­sion with­out the Source, pro­vided that you in­clude com­plete in­struc­tions on how to get the Source of the Stan­dard Ver­sion. Such in­struc­tions must be valid at the time of your dis­tri­bu­tion. If these in­struc­tions, at any time while you are car­ry­ing out such dis­tri­bu­tion, be­come in­valid, you must pro­vide new in­struc­tions on de­mand or cease fur­ther dis­tri­bu­tion. If you pro­vide valid in­struc­tions or cease dis­tri­bu­tion within thirty days af­ter you be­come aware that the in­struc­tions are in­valid, then you do not for­feit any of your rights un­der this li­cense.

(6) You may Distribute a Mod­i­fied Ver­sion in Com­piled form with­out the Source, pro­vided that you com­ply with Sec­tion 4 with re­spect to the Source of the Mod­i­fied Ver­sion.

Ag­gre­gat­ing or Link­ing the Pack­age

(7) You may ag­gre­gate the Pack­age (ei­ther the Stan­dard Ver­sion or Mod­i­fied Ver­sion) with other pack­ages and Distribute the re­sult­ing ag­gre­ga­tion pro­vided that you do not charge a li­cens­ing fee for the Pack­age. Distrib­u­tor Fees are per­mit­ted, and li­cens­ing fees for other com­po­nents in the ag­gre­ga­tion are per­mit­ted. The terms of this li­cense ap­ply to the use and Distri­bu­tion of the Stan­dard or Mod­i­fied Ver­sions as in­cluded in the ag­gre­ga­tion.

(8) You are per­mit­ted to link Mod­i­fied and Stan­dard Ver­sions with other works, to em­bed the Pack­age in a larger work of your own, or to build stand-alone bi­nary or byte­code ver­sions of ap­pli­ca­tions that in­clude the Pack­age, and Distribute the re­sult with­out re­stric­tion, pro­vided the re­sult does not ex­pose a di­rect in­ter­face to the Pack­age.

Items That are Not Con­sid­ered Part of a Mod­i­fied Ver­sion

(9) Works (in­clud­ing, but not lim­ited to, mod­ules and scripts) that merely ex­tend or make use of the Pack­age, do not, by them­selves, cause the Pack­age to be a Mod­i­fied Ver­sion. In ad­di­tion, such works are not con­sid­ered parts of the Pack­age it­self, and are not sub­ject to the terms of this li­cense.

Gen­eral Pro­vi­sions

(10) Any use, mod­i­fi­ca­tion, and dis­tri­bu­tion of the Stan­dard or Mod­i­fied Ver­sions is gov­erned by this Artis­tic Li­cense. By us­ing, mod­i­fy­ing or dis­tribut­ing the Pack­age, you ac­cept this li­cense. Do not use, mod­ify, or dis­tribute the Pack­age, if you do not ac­cept this li­cense.

(11) If your Mod­i­fied Ver­sion has been de­rived from a Mod­i­fied Ver­sion made by some­one other than you, you are nev­er­the­less re­quired to en­sure that your Mod­i­fied Ver­sion com­plies with the re­quire­ments of this li­cense.

(12) This li­cense does not grant you the right to use any trade­mark, ser­vice mark, trade­name, or logo of the Copy­right Holder.

(13) This li­cense in­cludes the non-ex­clu­sive, world­wide, free-of-charge patent li­cense to make, have made, use, of­fer to sell, sell, im­port and oth­er­wise trans­fer the Pack­age with re­spect to any patent claims li­cens­able by the Copy­right Holder that are nec­es­sar­ily in­fringed by the Pack­age. If you in­sti­tute patent lit­i­ga­tion (in­clud­ing a cross-claim or coun­ter­claim) against any party al­leg­ing that the Pack­age con­sti­tutes di­rect or con­trib­u­tory patent in­fringe­ment, then this Artis­tic Li­cense to you shall ter­mi­nate on the date that such lit­i­ga­tion is filed.
