SITEC LICENCE

Copyright (C) 1997 Frank Bergmann. Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this licence, but changing it is not allowed. You can also use this wording to make the terms for other programs. This licence is a based on (but not equal to) the General Public Licence of the Free Software Foundation.

This licence agreement is intended to give anyone the right to share SiteC for non-commercial use. To make sure that you get the rights we want you to have, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. Hence this licence agreement.

Specifically, we want to make sure that you have the right to give away copies of SiteC, that you receive source code or else can get it if you want it, that you can change SiteC or use pieces of it in new free programs, and that you know you can do these things.

To make sure that everyone has such rights, we have to forbid you to deprive anyone else of these rights. For example, if you distribute copies of SiteC, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must give them a verbatim copy of this licence to tell them their rights.

Also, for our own protection, we must make certain that everyone finds out that there is no warranty for SiteC. If SiteC is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is not what we distributed, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on our reputation.

Therefore I (Frank Bergmann) make the following terms which say what you must do to be allowed to distribute or change SiteC.

COPYING POLICIES

  1. You may use SiteC without licence fee for both, commercial and non-commercial purposes, provided that you include the reference <A HREF="http://flp.cs.tu-berlin.de/~fraber/sitec"> SiteC </A> on a prominent location of your HTML pages. A good place might be the trailer of your first page, together with your copyright remark and the creation date.
  2. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the SiteC source code as you receive it, on any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy a valid copyright notice "Copyright (C) 1998 Frank Bergmann" and the author's address; keep intact the notices on all files that refer to this Licence Agreement and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the SiteC program a copy of this Licence Agreement along with the program. You may charge a distribution fee for the physical act of transferring a copy.
  3. You may modify your copy or copies of SiteC source code or any portion of it, and copy and distribute such modifications under the terms of Paragraph 2 above, provided that you also do the following:
    a) cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any change; and
    b) cause the whole of any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is a derivative of SiteC or any part thereof, to be licensed at no charge to all third parties on terms identical to those contained in this Licence Agreement.
    c) you may charge a distribution fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
    Mere aggregation of another unrelated program with this program (or its derivative) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other program under the scope of these terms.
  4. You may copy and distribute SiteC (or a portion or derivative of it, under Paragraph 3) in object code or executable form under the terms of Paragraphs 2 and 3 above provided that you also do one of the following:
    a) accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Paragraphs 2 and 3 above; or,
    b) accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give any third party free (except for a nominal shipping charge) a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be distributed under the terms of Paragraphs 2 and 3 above; or,
    c) accompany it with the information you received as to where the corresponding source code may be obtained. (This alternative is allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in object code or executable form alone.)
    For an executable file, complete source code means all the source code for all modules it contains.
  5. You may not copy, sublicense, distribute or transfer SiteC except as expressly provided under this Licence Agreement. Any attempt otherwise to copy, sublicense, distribute or transfer SiteC is void and your rights to use SiteC under this Licence Agreement shall be automatically terminated. However, parties who have received computer software programs from you with this Licence Agreement will not have their licences terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
  6. If you wish to incorporate parts of SiteC into other programs or distribute Prolog programs running on SiteC whose distribution conditions are different, contact the author.
