        The Initial Developer hereby grants You a world-wide, royalty-free,
        non-exclusive license, subject to third party intellectual property
        claims:
        (a) under intellectual property rights (other than patent or trademark)
            Licensable by Initial Developer to use, reproduce, modify, display,
            perform, sublicense and distribute the Original Code (or portions
            thereof) with or without Modifications, and/or as part of a Larger
            Work; and
        (b) under Patents Claims infringed by the making, using or selling of
            Original Code, to make, have made, use, practice, sell, and offer
            for sale, and/or otherwise dispose of the Original Code (or
            portions thereof).
        (c) the licenses granted in this Section 2.1(a) and (b) are effective
            on the date Initial Developer first distributes Original Code
            under the terms of this License.
        (d) Notwithstanding Section 2.1(b) above, no patent license is
            granted: 1) for code that You delete from the Original Code;
            2) separate from the Original Code or 3) for infringements caused
            by: i) the modification of the Original Code or ii) the combination
            of the Original Code with other software or devices.
   2.2. Contributor Grant.
        Subject to third party intellectual property claims, each Contributor
        hereby grants You a world-wide, royalty-free, non-exclusive license
        (a) under intellectual property rights (other than patent or trademark)
            Licensable by Contributor, to use, reproduce, modify, display,

            basis, with other Modifications, as Covered Code and/or as part of
            a Larger Work; and
        (b) under Patent Claims infringed by the making, using, or selling of
            Modifications made by that Contributor either alone and/or in
            combination with its Contributor Version (or portions of such
            combination), to make, use, sell, offer for sale, have made,
            and/or otherwise dispose of: 1) Modifications made by that
            Contributor (or portions thereof); and 2) the combination of
            Modifications made by that Contributor with its Contributor

        (c) the licenses granted in Sections 2.2(a) and 2.2(b) are effective
            on the date Contributor first makes Commercial Use of the Covered
            Code.
        (d) Notwithstanding Section 2.2(b) above, no patent license is

            3) for infringements caused by: i) third party modifications of
            Contributor Version or ii) the combination of Modifications made

            Contributor Version) or other devices; or 4) under Patent Claims
            infringed by Covered Code in the absence of Modifications made by
            that Contributor.

3. Distribution Obligations.[edit]

   3.1. Application of License.
        The Modifications which You create or to which You contribute are
        governed by the terms of this License, including without limitation
        Section 2.2.
        The Source Code version of Covered Code may be distributed only under
        the terms of this License or a future version of this License released
        under Section 6.1, and You must include a copy of this License with
        every copy of the Source Code You distribute. You may not offer or
        impose any terms on any Source Code version that alters or restricts
        the applicable version of this License or the recipients' rights
        hereunder. However, You may include an additional document offering
        the additional rights described in Section 3.5.
   3.2. Availability of Source Code.
        Any Modification which You create or to which You contribute must be
        made available in Source Code form under the terms of this License
        either on the same media as an Executable version or via an accepted
        Electronic Distribution Mechanism to anyone to whom you made an
        Executable version available; and if made available via Electronic
        Distribution Mechanism, must remain available for at least twelve (12)
        months after the date it initially became available, or at least six
        (6) months after a subsequent version of that particular Modification
        has been made available to such recipients. You are responsible for
        ensuring that the Source Code version remains available even if the
        Electronic Distribution Mechanism is maintained by a third party.
   3.3. Description of Modifications.
        You must cause all Covered Code to which You contribute to contain a
        file documenting the changes You made to create that Covered Code and
        the date of any change. You must include a prominent statement that
        the Modification is derived, directly or indirectly, from Original
        Code provided by the Initial Developer and including the name of the
        Initial Developer in (a) the Source Code, and (b) in any notice in an
        Executable version or related documentation in which You describe the
        origin or ownership of the Covered Code.
   3.4. Intellectual Property Matters.
        (a) Third Party Claims.
            If Contributor has knowledge that a license under a third party's
            intellectual property rights is required to exercise the rights
            granted by such Contributor under Sections 2.1 or 2.2, Contributor
            must include a text file with the Source Code distribution titled
            "LEGAL" which describes the claim and the party making the claim
            in sufficient detail that a recipient will know whom to contact.
            If Contributor obtains such knowledge after the Modification is
            made available as described in Section 3.2, Contributor shall
            promptly modify the LEGAL file in all copies Contributor makes
            available thereafter and shall take other steps (such as notifying
            appropriate mailing lists or newsgroups) reasonably calculated to
            inform those who received the Covered Code that new knowledge has
            been obtained.
        (b) Contributor APIs.
            If Contributor's Modifications include an application programming
            interface and Contributor has knowledge of patent licenses which
            are reasonably necessary to implement that API, Contributor must
            also include this information in the LEGAL file.
        (c) Representations.
            Contributor represents that, except as disclosed pursuant to
            Section 3.4(a) above, Contributor believes that Contributor's
            Modifications are Contributor's original creation(s) and/or
            Contributor has sufficient rights to grant the rights conveyed by
            this License.
   3.5. Required Notices.
        You must duplicate the notice in Exhibit A in each file of the Source
        Code. If it is not possible to put such notice in a particular Source
        Code file due to its structure, then You must include such notice in
        a location (such as a relevant directory) where a user would be likely
        to look for such a notice. If You created one or more Modification(s)
        You may add your name as a Contributor to the notice described in
        Exhibit A. You must also duplicate this License in any documentation
        for the Source Code where You describe recipients' rights or ownership
        rights relating to Covered Code. You may choose to offer, and to
        charge a fee for, warranty, support, indemnity or liability
        obligations to one or more recipients of Covered Code. However, You
        may do so only on Your own behalf, and not on behalf of the Initial
        Developer or any Contributor. You must make it absolutely clear than
        any such warranty, support, indemnity or liability obligation is
        offered by You alone, and You hereby agree to indemnify the Initial
        Developer and every Contributor for any liability incurred by the
        Initial Developer or such Contributor as a result of warranty,
        support, indemnity or liability terms You offer.
   3.6. Distribution of Executable Versions.
        You may distribute Covered Code in Executable form only if the
        requirements of Section 3.1-3.5 have been met for that Covered Code,
        and if You include a notice stating that the Source Code version of
        the Covered Code is available under the terms of this License,
        including a description of how and where You have fulfilled the
        obligations of Section 3.2. The notice must be conspicuously included
        in any notice in an Executable version, related documentation or
        collateral in which You describe recipients' rights relating to the
        Covered Code. You may distribute the Executable version of Covered
        Code or ownership rights under a license of Your choice, which may
        contain terms different from this License, provided that You are in
        compliance with the terms of this License and that the license for the
        Executable version does not attempt to limit or alter the recipient's
        rights in the Source Code version from the rights set forth in this
        License. If You distribute the Executable version under a different
        license You must make it absolutely clear that any terms which differ
        from this License are offered by You alone, not by the Initial
        Developer or any Contributor. You hereby agree to indemnify the
        Initial Developer and every Contributor for any liability incurred by
        the Initial Developer or such Contributor as a result of any such
        terms You offer.
   3.7. Larger Works.
        You may create a Larger Work by combining Covered Code with other code
        not governed by the terms of this License and distribute the Larger
        Work as a single product. In such a case, You must make sure the
        requirements of this License are fulfilled for the Covered Code.

4. Inability to Comply Due to Statute or Regulation.[edit]

   If it is impossible for You to comply with any of the terms of this License
   with respect to some or all of the Covered Code due to statute, judicial
   order, or regulation then You must: (a) comply with the terms of this
   License to the maximum extent possible; and (b) describe the limitations and
   the code they affect. Such description must be included in the LEGAL file
   described in Section 3.4 and must be included with all distributions of the
   Source Code. Except to the extent prohibited by statute or regulation, such
   description must be sufficiently detailed for a recipient of ordinary skill
   to be able to understand it.

5. Application of this License.[edit]

   5.1. Attached license.
        This License applies to code to which the Initial Developer has
        attached the notice in Exhibit A and to related Covered Code.
   5.2. Detached license.
        This License applies to code which is part of a Source Tree
        containing this license in a file named LICENSE or license.html
        at the top of its hierarchy and which is not explicitly covered by a
        different license.

6. Versions of the License.[edit]

   6.1. New Versions.
        The AROS development team may publish revised and/or new versions of
        the License from time to time.  Each version will be given a
        distinguishing version number.
   6.2. Effect of New Versions.
        Once Covered Code has been published under a particular version of
        the License, You may always continue to use it under the terms of that
        version. You may also choose to use such Covered Code under the terms
        of any subsequent version of the License. No one other than the AROS
        development team has the right to modify the terms applicable to
        Covered Code created under this License.

7. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY.[edit]

   COVERED CODE IS PROVIDED UNDER THIS LICENSE ON AN "AS IS" BASIS, WITHOUT
   WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT
   LIMITATION, WARRANTIES THAT THE COVERED CODE IS FREE OF DEFECTS,
   MERCHANTABLE, FIT FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGING. THE ENTIRE
   RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE COVERED CODE IS WITH YOU.
   SHOULD ANY COVERED CODE PROVE DEFECTIVE IN ANY RESPECT, YOU (NOT THE
   INITIAL DEVELOPER OR ANY OTHER CONTRIBUTOR) ASSUME THE COST OF ANY
   NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION. THIS DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY
   CONSTITUTES AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THIS LICENSE. NO USE OF ANY COVERED CODE
   IS AUTHORIZED HEREUNDER EXCEPT UNDER THIS DISCLAIMER.

8. TERMINATION.[edit]

   8.1. This License and the rights granted hereunder will terminate
        automatically if You fail to comply with terms herein and fail to cure
        such breach within 30 days of becoming aware of the breach. All
        sublicenses to the Covered Code which are properly granted shall
        survive any termination of this License. Provisions which, by their
        nature, must remain in effect beyond the termination of this License
        shall survive.
   8.2. If You initiate litigation by asserting a patent infringement claim
        (excluding declatory judgment actions) against Initial Developer or a
        Contributor (the Initial Developer or Contributor against whom You
        file such action is referred to as "Participant") alleging that:
        (a) such Participant's Contributor Version directly or indirectly
            infringes any patent, then any and all rights granted by such
            Participant to You under Sections 2.1 and/or 2.2 of this License
            shall, upon 60 days notice from Participant terminate
            prospectively, unless if within 60 days after receipt of notice
            You either: (i) agree in writing to pay Participant a mutually
            agreeable reasonable royalty for Your past and future use of
            Modifications made by such Participant, or (ii) withdraw Your
            litigation claim with respect to the Contributor Version against
            such Participant. If within 60 days of notice, a reasonable
            royalty and payment arrangement are not mutually agreed upon in
            writing by the parties or the litigation claim is not withdrawn,
            the rights granted by Participant to You under Sections 2.1 and/or
            2.2 automatically terminate at the expiration of the 60 day notice
            period specified above.
        (b) any software, hardware, or device, other than such Participant's
            Contributor Version, directly or indirectly infringes any patent,
            then any rights granted to You by such Participant under Sections
            2.1(b) and 2.2(b) are revoked effective as of the date You first
            made, used, sold, distributed, or had made, Modifications made by
            that Participant.
   8.3. If You assert a patent infringement claim against Participant alleging
        that such Participant's Contributor Version directly or indirectly
        infringes any patent where such claim is resolved (such as by license
        or settlement) prior to the initiation of patent infringement
        litigation, then the reasonable value of the licenses granted by such
        Participant under Sections 2.1 or 2.2 shall be taken into account in
        determining the amount or value of any payment or license.
   8.4. In the event of termination under Sections 8.1 or 8.2 above, all end
        user license agreements (excluding distributors and resellers) which
        have been validly granted by You or any distributor hereunder prior to
        termination shall survive termination.

9. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.[edit]

   UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY, WHETHER TORT (INCLUDING
   NEGLIGENCE), CONTRACT, OR OTHERWISE, SHALL YOU, THE INITIAL DEVELOPER, ANY
   OTHER CONTRIBUTOR, OR ANY DISTRIBUTOR OF COVERED CODE, OR ANY SUPPLIER OF
   ANY OF SUCH PARTIES, BE LIABLE TO ANY PERSON FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL,
   INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY CHARACTER INCLUDING, WITHOUT
   LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, COMPUTER FAILURE
   OR MALFUNCTION, OR ANY AND ALL OTHER COMMERCIAL DAMAGES OR LOSSES, EVEN IF
   SUCH PARTY SHALL HAVE BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
   THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SHALL NOT APPLY TO LIABILITY FOR DEATH OR
   PERSONAL INJURY RESULTING FROM SUCH PARTY'S NEGLIGENCE TO THE EXTENT
   APPLICABLE LAW PROHIBITS SUCH LIMITATION. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW
   THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THIS
   EXCLUSION AND LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

10. U.S. GOVERNMENT END USERS.[edit]

   The Covered Code is a "commercial item", as that term is defined in 48
   C.F.R. 2.101 (Oct. 1995), consisting of "commercial computer software"
   and "commercial computer software documentation", as such terms are used
   in 48 C.F.R. 12.212 (Sept. 1995). Consistent with 48 C.F.R. 12.212 and
   48 C.F.R. 227.7202-1 through 227.7202-4 (June 1995), all U.S. Government
   End Users acquire Covered Code with only those rights set forth herein.

11. MISCELLANEOUS.[edit]

   This License represents the complete agreement concerning subject matter
   hereof. If any provision of this License is held to be unenforceable, such
   provision shall be reformed only to the extent necessary to make it
   enforceable.

12. RESPONSIBILITY FOR CLAIMS.[edit]

   As between Initial Developer and the Contributors, each party is
   responsible for claims and damages arising, directly or indirectly, out of
   its utilization of rights under this License and You agree to work with
   Initial Developer and Contributors to distribute such responsibility on an
   equitable basis. Nothing herein is intended or shall be deemed to
   constitute any admission of liability.

13. MULTIPLE-LICENSED CODE.[edit]

   Initial Developer may designate portions of the Covered Code as
   "Multiple-Licensed". "Multiple-Licensed" means that the Initial Developer
   permits you to utilize portions of the Covered Code under alternative
   licenses specified by the Initial Developer in the file described in
   Exhibit A.
