By "the Software" this licence refers to the complete contents of the eezUPnP archive, excluding this licence document itself. The software called "eezUPnP" is specifically included under this licence.
The Software is freely redistributable; anyone may copy the Software, or parts of the Software, and give away as many copies as they like to anyone, as long as this licence document is kept with the Software. Charging a fee for the Software is prohibited, although a fee may be charged for the act of transferring a copy, and you can offer warranty protection and charge a fee for that.
The Software, or parts thereof, may be incorporated into other freely redistributable software (by which we mean software that may be obtained free of charge) without requiring permission from the authors, as long as due credit is given to the authors of the Software in the resulting work, as long as the authors are informed of this action if possible, and as long as those parts of the Software that are used remain under this licence.
Modified forms of the Software may be created and distributed as long as the authors are informed of this action if possible, as long as the resulting work remains under this licence, as long as the modified form of the Software is distributed with documentation which still gives credit to the original authors of the Software, and as long as the modified form of the Software is distributed with a clear statement that it is not the original form of the Software in the form that it was distributed by the authors.
The Software, or parts thereof, may be incorporated into other software which is not freely redistributable (i.e. software for which a fee is charged), as long as permission is granted from the authors of the Software. The authors reserve the right to grant this permission only for a fee, which may at our option take the form of royalty payments. The authors also reserve the right to refuse to grant permission if they deem it necessary. For further information about who exactly the authors are, see clause 'Authors' below.
The Software may be incorporated, in its original archive form, into software collections or archives which are not freely redistributable, as long as it is clearly stated that the Software itself remains freely redistributable and remains under this licence and no other. Such collections are deemed not to fall under article IV of this licence.
Object files or programs generated by the Software as output do not fall under this licence at all, and may be placed under any licence the author wishes. The authors explicitly lay no claim to, and assert no rights over, any programs written by other people and assembled into object form by the Software.
You may not copy, modify or distribute the Software except under the terms given in this licence document. You may not sublicense the Software or in any way place it under any other licence than this one. Since you have not signed this licence, you are not of course required to accept it; however, no other licence applies to the Software, and nothing else grants you any permission to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Software in any way. These actions are therefore prohibited if you do not accept this licence.
There is no warranty for the Software, to the extent permitted by applicable law. The authors provide the Software "as is" without warranty 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 Software is with you. Should the Software prove defective, you assume the cost of all necessary servicing, repair or correction.
In no event, unless required by applicable law or agreed to in writing, will any of the authors be liable to you for damages, including any general, special, incidental or consequential damages, arising out of the use or the inability to use the Software, including but not limited to loss of data or data being rendered inaccurate or a failure of the Software to operate with any other programs, even if you have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
In addition to what this Licence otherwise provides, the Software may be distributed in such a way as to be compliant with the GNU General Public Licence, as published by the Free Software Foundation, Cambridge, MA, USA; version 2, or, at your option, any later version; incorporated herein by reference. You must include a copy of this Licence with such distribution. Furthermore, patches sent to the authors for the purpose of inclusion in the official release version are considered cleared for release under the full terms of this Licence.
Should any part of this agreement be deemed unenforcable, it is intended that the remainder of the agreement be held in force.
Currently authors of eezUPnP are:
