<h2>Eclipse Public License - v 1.0</h2>
31

    
32
<p>THE ACCOMPANYING PROGRAM IS PROVIDED UNDER THE TERMS OF THIS ECLIPSE
33
PUBLIC LICENSE (&quot;AGREEMENT&quot;). ANY USE, REPRODUCTION OR
34
DISTRIBUTION OF THE PROGRAM CONSTITUTES RECIPIENT'S ACCEPTANCE OF THIS
35
AGREEMENT.</p>
36

    
37
<p><b>1. DEFINITIONS</b></p>
38

    
39
<p>&quot;Contribution&quot; means:</p>
40

    
41
<p class="list">a) in the case of the initial Contributor, the initial
42
code and documentation distributed under this Agreement, and</p>
43
<p class="list">b) in the case of each subsequent Contributor:</p>
44
<p class="list">i) changes to the Program, and</p>
45
<p class="list">ii) additions to the Program;</p>
46
<p class="list">where such changes and/or additions to the Program
47
originate from and are distributed by that particular Contributor. A
48
Contribution 'originates' from a Contributor if it was added to the
49
Program by such Contributor itself or anyone acting on such
50
Contributor's behalf. Contributions do not include additions to the
51
Program which: (i) are separate modules of software distributed in
52
conjunction with the Program under their own license agreement, and (ii)
53
are not derivative works of the Program.</p>
54

    
55
<p>&quot;Contributor&quot; means any person or entity that distributes
56
the Program.</p>
57

    
58
<p>&quot;Licensed Patents&quot; mean patent claims licensable by a
59
Contributor which are necessarily infringed by the use or sale of its
60
Contribution alone or when combined with the Program.</p>
61

    
62
<p>&quot;Program&quot; means the Contributions distributed in accordance
63
with this Agreement.</p>
64

    
65
<p>&quot;Recipient&quot; means anyone who receives the Program under
66
this Agreement, including all Contributors.</p>
67

    
68
<p><b>2. GRANT OF RIGHTS</b></p>
69

    
70
<p class="list">a) Subject to the terms of this Agreement, each
71
Contributor hereby grants Recipient a non-exclusive, worldwide,
72
royalty-free copyright license to reproduce, prepare derivative works
73
of, publicly display, publicly perform, distribute and sublicense the
74
Contribution of such Contributor, if any, and such derivative works, in
75
source code and object code form.</p>
76

    
77
<p class="list">b) Subject to the terms of this Agreement, each
78
Contributor hereby grants Recipient a non-exclusive, worldwide,
79
royalty-free patent license under Licensed Patents to make, use, sell,
80
offer to sell, import and otherwise transfer the Contribution of such
81
Contributor, if any, in source code and object code form. This patent
82
license shall apply to the combination of the Contribution and the
83
Program if, at the time the Contribution is added by the Contributor,
84
such addition of the Contribution causes such combination to be covered
85
by the Licensed Patents. The patent license shall not apply to any other
86
combinations which include the Contribution. No hardware per se is
87
licensed hereunder.</p>
88

    
89
<p class="list">c) Recipient understands that although each Contributor
90
grants the licenses to its Contributions set forth herein, no assurances
91
are provided by any Contributor that the Program does not infringe the
92
patent or other intellectual property rights of any other entity. Each
93
Contributor disclaims any liability to Recipient for claims brought by
94
any other entity based on infringement of intellectual property rights
95
or otherwise. As a condition to exercising the rights and licenses
96
granted hereunder, each Recipient hereby assumes sole responsibility to
97
secure any other intellectual property rights needed, if any. For
98
example, if a third party patent license is required to allow Recipient
99
to distribute the Program, it is Recipient's responsibility to acquire
100
that license before distributing the Program.</p>
101

    
102
<p class="list">d) Each Contributor represents that to its knowledge it
103
has sufficient copyright rights in its Contribution, if any, to grant
104
the copyright license set forth in this Agreement.</p>
105

    
106
<p><b>3. REQUIREMENTS</b></p>
107

    
108
<p>A Contributor may choose to distribute the Program in object code
109
form under its own license agreement, provided that:</p>
110

    
111
<p class="list">a) it complies with the terms and conditions of this
112
Agreement; and</p>
113

    
114
<p class="list">b) its license agreement:</p>
115

    
116
<p class="list">i) effectively disclaims on behalf of all Contributors
117
all warranties and conditions, express and implied, including warranties
118
or conditions of title and non-infringement, and implied warranties or
119
conditions of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose;</p>
120

    
121
<p class="list">ii) effectively excludes on behalf of all Contributors
122
all liability for damages, including direct, indirect, special,
123
incidental and consequential damages, such as lost profits;</p>
124

    
125
<p class="list">iii) states that any provisions which differ from this
126
Agreement are offered by that Contributor alone and not by any other
127
party; and</p>
128

    
129
<p class="list">iv) states that source code for the Program is available
130
from such Contributor, and informs licensees how to obtain it in a
131
reasonable manner on or through a medium customarily used for software
132
exchange.</p>
133

    
134
<p>When the Program is made available in source code form:</p>
135

    
136
<p class="list">a) it must be made available under this Agreement; and</p>
137

    
138
<p class="list">b) a copy of this Agreement must be included with each
139
copy of the Program.</p>
140

    
141
<p>Contributors may not remove or alter any copyright notices contained
142
within the Program.</p>
143

    
144
<p>Each Contributor must identify itself as the originator of its
145
Contribution, if any, in a manner that reasonably allows subsequent
146
Recipients to identify the originator of the Contribution.</p>
147

    
148
<p><b>4. COMMERCIAL DISTRIBUTION</b></p>
149

    
150
<p>Commercial distributors of software may accept certain
151
responsibilities with respect to end users, business partners and the
152
like. While this license is intended to facilitate the commercial use of
153
the Program, the Contributor who includes the Program in a commercial
154
product offering should do so in a manner which does not create
155
potential liability for other Contributors. Therefore, if a Contributor
156
includes the Program in a commercial product offering, such Contributor
157
(&quot;Commercial Contributor&quot;) hereby agrees to defend and
158
indemnify every other Contributor (&quot;Indemnified Contributor&quot;)
159
against any losses, damages and costs (collectively &quot;Losses&quot;)
160
arising from claims, lawsuits and other legal actions brought by a third
161
party against the Indemnified Contributor to the extent caused by the
162
acts or omissions of such Commercial Contributor in connection with its
163
distribution of the Program in a commercial product offering. The
164
obligations in this section do not apply to any claims or Losses
165
relating to any actual or alleged intellectual property infringement. In
166
order to qualify, an Indemnified Contributor must: a) promptly notify
167
the Commercial Contributor in writing of such claim, and b) allow the
168
Commercial Contributor to control, and cooperate with the Commercial
169
Contributor in, the defense and any related settlement negotiations. The
170
Indemnified Contributor may participate in any such claim at its own
171
expense.</p>
172

    
173
<p>For example, a Contributor might include the Program in a commercial
174
product offering, Product X. That Contributor is then a Commercial
175
Contributor. If that Commercial Contributor then makes performance
176
claims, or offers warranties related to Product X, those performance
177
claims and warranties are such Commercial Contributor's responsibility
178
alone. Under this section, the Commercial Contributor would have to
179
defend claims against the other Contributors related to those
180
performance claims and warranties, and if a court requires any other
181
Contributor to pay any damages as a result, the Commercial Contributor
182
must pay those damages.</p>
183

    
184
<p><b>5. NO WARRANTY</b></p>
185

    
186
<p>EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, THE PROGRAM IS
187
PROVIDED ON AN &quot;AS IS&quot; BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS
188
OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION,
189
ANY WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY
190
OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. Each Recipient is solely
191
responsible for determining the appropriateness of using and
192
distributing the Program and assumes all risks associated with its
193
exercise of rights under this Agreement , including but not limited to
194
the risks and costs of program errors, compliance with applicable laws,
195
damage to or loss of data, programs or equipment, and unavailability or
196
interruption of operations.</p>
197

    
198
<p><b>6. DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY</b></p>
199

    
200
<p>EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, NEITHER RECIPIENT
201
NOR ANY CONTRIBUTORS SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT,
202
INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING
203
WITHOUT LIMITATION LOST PROFITS), HOWEVER CAUSED AND ON ANY THEORY OF
204
LIABILITY, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR TORT (INCLUDING
205
NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE) ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THE USE OR
206
DISTRIBUTION OF THE PROGRAM OR THE EXERCISE OF ANY RIGHTS GRANTED
207
HEREUNDER, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.</p>
208

    
209
<p><b>7. GENERAL</b></p>
210

    
211
<p>If any provision of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable under
212
applicable law, it shall not affect the validity or enforceability of
213
the remainder of the terms of this Agreement, and without further action
214
by the parties hereto, such provision shall be reformed to the minimum
215
extent necessary to make such provision valid and enforceable.</p>
216

    
217
<p>If Recipient institutes patent litigation against any entity
218
(including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that the
219
Program itself (excluding combinations of the Program with other
220
software or hardware) infringes such Recipient's patent(s), then such
221
Recipient's rights granted under Section 2(b) shall terminate as of the
222
date such litigation is filed.</p>
223

    
224
<p>All Recipient's rights under this Agreement shall terminate if it
225
fails to comply with any of the material terms or conditions of this
226
Agreement and does not cure such failure in a reasonable period of time
227
after becoming aware of such noncompliance. If all Recipient's rights
228
under this Agreement terminate, Recipient agrees to cease use and
229
distribution of the Program as soon as reasonably practicable. However,
230
Recipient's obligations under this Agreement and any licenses granted by
231
Recipient relating to the Program shall continue and survive.</p>
232

    
233
<p>Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute copies of this
234
Agreement, but in order to avoid inconsistency the Agreement is
235
copyrighted and may only be modified in the following manner. The
236
Agreement Steward reserves the right to publish new versions (including
237
revisions) of this Agreement from time to time. No one other than the
238
Agreement Steward has the right to modify this Agreement. The Eclipse
239
Foundation is the initial Agreement Steward. The Eclipse Foundation may
240
assign the responsibility to serve as the Agreement Steward to a
241
suitable separate entity. Each new version of the Agreement will be
242
given a distinguishing version number. The Program (including
243
Contributions) may always be distributed subject to the version of the
244
Agreement under which it was received. In addition, after a new version
245
of the Agreement is published, Contributor may elect to distribute the
246
Program (including its Contributions) under the new version. Except as
247
expressly stated in Sections 2(a) and 2(b) above, Recipient receives no
248
rights or licenses to the intellectual property of any Contributor under
249
this Agreement, whether expressly, by implication, estoppel or
250
otherwise. All rights in the Program not expressly granted under this
251
Agreement are reserved.</p>
252

    
253
<p>This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of New York and
254
the intellectual property laws of the United States of America. No party
255
to this Agreement will bring a legal action under this Agreement more
256
than one year after the cause of action arose. Each party waives its
257
rights to a jury trial in any resulting litigation.</p>
