<h2>Eclipse Public License - v 1.0</h2>
31 82 sjacqu01
32 82 sjacqu01
<p>THE ACCOMPANYING PROGRAM IS PROVIDED UNDER THE TERMS OF THIS ECLIPSE
33 82 sjacqu01
PUBLIC LICENSE (&quot;AGREEMENT&quot;). ANY USE, REPRODUCTION OR
34 82 sjacqu01
DISTRIBUTION OF THE PROGRAM CONSTITUTES RECIPIENT'S ACCEPTANCE OF THIS
35 82 sjacqu01
AGREEMENT.</p>
36 82 sjacqu01
37 82 sjacqu01
<p><b>1. DEFINITIONS</b></p>
38 82 sjacqu01
39 82 sjacqu01
<p>&quot;Contribution&quot; means:</p>
40 82 sjacqu01
41 82 sjacqu01
<p class="list">a) in the case of the initial Contributor, the initial
42 82 sjacqu01
code and documentation distributed under this Agreement, and</p>
43 82 sjacqu01
<p class="list">b) in the case of each subsequent Contributor:</p>
44 82 sjacqu01
<p class="list">i) changes to the Program, and</p>
45 82 sjacqu01
<p class="list">ii) additions to the Program;</p>
46 82 sjacqu01
<p class="list">where such changes and/or additions to the Program
47 82 sjacqu01
originate from and are distributed by that particular Contributor. A
48 82 sjacqu01
Contribution 'originates' from a Contributor if it was added to the
49 82 sjacqu01
Program by such Contributor itself or anyone acting on such
50 82 sjacqu01
Contributor's behalf. Contributions do not include additions to the
51 82 sjacqu01
Program which: (i) are separate modules of software distributed in
52 82 sjacqu01
conjunction with the Program under their own license agreement, and (ii)
53 82 sjacqu01
are not derivative works of the Program.</p>
54 82 sjacqu01
55 82 sjacqu01
<p>&quot;Contributor&quot; means any person or entity that distributes
56 82 sjacqu01
the Program.</p>
57 82 sjacqu01
58 82 sjacqu01
<p>&quot;Licensed Patents&quot; mean patent claims licensable by a
59 82 sjacqu01
Contributor which are necessarily infringed by the use or sale of its
60 82 sjacqu01
Contribution alone or when combined with the Program.</p>
61 82 sjacqu01
62 82 sjacqu01
<p>&quot;Program&quot; means the Contributions distributed in accordance
63 82 sjacqu01
with this Agreement.</p>
64 82 sjacqu01
65 82 sjacqu01
<p>&quot;Recipient&quot; means anyone who receives the Program under
66 82 sjacqu01
this Agreement, including all Contributors.</p>
67 82 sjacqu01
68 82 sjacqu01
<p><b>2. GRANT OF RIGHTS</b></p>
69 82 sjacqu01
70 82 sjacqu01
<p class="list">a) Subject to the terms of this Agreement, each
71 82 sjacqu01
Contributor hereby grants Recipient a non-exclusive, worldwide,
72 82 sjacqu01
royalty-free copyright license to reproduce, prepare derivative works
73 82 sjacqu01
of, publicly display, publicly perform, distribute and sublicense the
74 82 sjacqu01
Contribution of such Contributor, if any, and such derivative works, in
75 82 sjacqu01
source code and object code form.</p>
76 82 sjacqu01
77 82 sjacqu01
<p class="list">b) Subject to the terms of this Agreement, each
78 82 sjacqu01
Contributor hereby grants Recipient a non-exclusive, worldwide,
79 82 sjacqu01
royalty-free patent license under Licensed Patents to make, use, sell,
80 82 sjacqu01
offer to sell, import and otherwise transfer the Contribution of such
81 82 sjacqu01
Contributor, if any, in source code and object code form. This patent
82 82 sjacqu01
license shall apply to the combination of the Contribution and the
83 82 sjacqu01
Program if, at the time the Contribution is added by the Contributor,
84 82 sjacqu01
such addition of the Contribution causes such combination to be covered
85 82 sjacqu01
by the Licensed Patents. The patent license shall not apply to any other
86 82 sjacqu01
combinations which include the Contribution. No hardware per se is
87 82 sjacqu01
licensed hereunder.</p>
88 82 sjacqu01
89 82 sjacqu01
<p class="list">c) Recipient understands that although each Contributor
90 82 sjacqu01
grants the licenses to its Contributions set forth herein, no assurances
91 82 sjacqu01
are provided by any Contributor that the Program does not infringe the
92 82 sjacqu01
patent or other intellectual property rights of any other entity. Each
93 82 sjacqu01
Contributor disclaims any liability to Recipient for claims brought by
94 82 sjacqu01
any other entity based on infringement of intellectual property rights
95 82 sjacqu01
or otherwise. As a condition to exercising the rights and licenses
96 82 sjacqu01
granted hereunder, each Recipient hereby assumes sole responsibility to
97 82 sjacqu01
secure any other intellectual property rights needed, if any. For
98 82 sjacqu01
example, if a third party patent license is required to allow Recipient
99 82 sjacqu01
to distribute the Program, it is Recipient's responsibility to acquire
100 82 sjacqu01
that license before distributing the Program.</p>
101 82 sjacqu01
102 82 sjacqu01
<p class="list">d) Each Contributor represents that to its knowledge it
103 82 sjacqu01
has sufficient copyright rights in its Contribution, if any, to grant
104 82 sjacqu01
the copyright license set forth in this Agreement.</p>
105 82 sjacqu01
106 82 sjacqu01
<p><b>3. REQUIREMENTS</b></p>
107 82 sjacqu01
108 82 sjacqu01
<p>A Contributor may choose to distribute the Program in object code
109 82 sjacqu01
form under its own license agreement, provided that:</p>
110 82 sjacqu01
111 82 sjacqu01
<p class="list">a) it complies with the terms and conditions of this
112 82 sjacqu01
Agreement; and</p>
113 82 sjacqu01
114 82 sjacqu01
<p class="list">b) its license agreement:</p>
115 82 sjacqu01
116 82 sjacqu01
<p class="list">i) effectively disclaims on behalf of all Contributors
117 82 sjacqu01
all warranties and conditions, express and implied, including warranties
118 82 sjacqu01
or conditions of title and non-infringement, and implied warranties or
119 82 sjacqu01
conditions of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose;</p>
120 82 sjacqu01
121 82 sjacqu01
<p class="list">ii) effectively excludes on behalf of all Contributors
122 82 sjacqu01
all liability for damages, including direct, indirect, special,
123 82 sjacqu01
incidental and consequential damages, such as lost profits;</p>
124 82 sjacqu01
125 82 sjacqu01
<p class="list">iii) states that any provisions which differ from this
126 82 sjacqu01
Agreement are offered by that Contributor alone and not by any other
127 82 sjacqu01
party; and</p>
128 82 sjacqu01
129 82 sjacqu01
<p class="list">iv) states that source code for the Program is available
130 82 sjacqu01
from such Contributor, and informs licensees how to obtain it in a
131 82 sjacqu01
reasonable manner on or through a medium customarily used for software
132 82 sjacqu01
exchange.</p>
133 82 sjacqu01
134 82 sjacqu01
<p>When the Program is made available in source code form:</p>
135 82 sjacqu01
136 82 sjacqu01
<p class="list">a) it must be made available under this Agreement; and</p>
137 82 sjacqu01
138 82 sjacqu01
<p class="list">b) a copy of this Agreement must be included with each
139 82 sjacqu01
copy of the Program.</p>
140 82 sjacqu01
141 82 sjacqu01
<p>Contributors may not remove or alter any copyright notices contained
142 82 sjacqu01
within the Program.</p>
143 82 sjacqu01
144 82 sjacqu01
<p>Each Contributor must identify itself as the originator of its
145 82 sjacqu01
Contribution, if any, in a manner that reasonably allows subsequent
146 82 sjacqu01
Recipients to identify the originator of the Contribution.</p>
147 82 sjacqu01
148 82 sjacqu01
<p><b>4. COMMERCIAL DISTRIBUTION</b></p>
149 82 sjacqu01
150 82 sjacqu01
<p>Commercial distributors of software may accept certain
151 82 sjacqu01
responsibilities with respect to end users, business partners and the
152 82 sjacqu01
like. While this license is intended to facilitate the commercial use of
153 82 sjacqu01
the Program, the Contributor who includes the Program in a commercial
154 82 sjacqu01
product offering should do so in a manner which does not create
155 82 sjacqu01
potential liability for other Contributors. Therefore, if a Contributor
156 82 sjacqu01
includes the Program in a commercial product offering, such Contributor
157 82 sjacqu01
(&quot;Commercial Contributor&quot;) hereby agrees to defend and
158 82 sjacqu01
indemnify every other Contributor (&quot;Indemnified Contributor&quot;)
159 82 sjacqu01
against any losses, damages and costs (collectively &quot;Losses&quot;)
160 82 sjacqu01
arising from claims, lawsuits and other legal actions brought by a third
161 82 sjacqu01
party against the Indemnified Contributor to the extent caused by the
162 82 sjacqu01
acts or omissions of such Commercial Contributor in connection with its
163 82 sjacqu01
distribution of the Program in a commercial product offering. The
164 82 sjacqu01
obligations in this section do not apply to any claims or Losses
165 82 sjacqu01
relating to any actual or alleged intellectual property infringement. In
166 82 sjacqu01
order to qualify, an Indemnified Contributor must: a) promptly notify
167 82 sjacqu01
the Commercial Contributor in writing of such claim, and b) allow the
168 82 sjacqu01
Commercial Contributor to control, and cooperate with the Commercial
169 82 sjacqu01
Contributor in, the defense and any related settlement negotiations. The
170 82 sjacqu01
Indemnified Contributor may participate in any such claim at its own
171 82 sjacqu01
expense.</p>
172 82 sjacqu01
173 82 sjacqu01
<p>For example, a Contributor might include the Program in a commercial
174 82 sjacqu01
product offering, Product X. That Contributor is then a Commercial
175 82 sjacqu01
Contributor. If that Commercial Contributor then makes performance
176 82 sjacqu01
claims, or offers warranties related to Product X, those performance
177 82 sjacqu01
claims and warranties are such Commercial Contributor's responsibility
178 82 sjacqu01
alone. Under this section, the Commercial Contributor would have to
179 82 sjacqu01
defend claims against the other Contributors related to those
180 82 sjacqu01
performance claims and warranties, and if a court requires any other
181 82 sjacqu01
Contributor to pay any damages as a result, the Commercial Contributor
182 82 sjacqu01
must pay those damages.</p>
183 82 sjacqu01
184 82 sjacqu01
<p><b>5. NO WARRANTY</b></p>
185 82 sjacqu01
186 82 sjacqu01
<p>EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, THE PROGRAM IS
187 82 sjacqu01
PROVIDED ON AN &quot;AS IS&quot; BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS
188 82 sjacqu01
OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION,
189 82 sjacqu01
ANY WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY
190 82 sjacqu01
OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. Each Recipient is solely
191 82 sjacqu01
responsible for determining the appropriateness of using and
192 82 sjacqu01
distributing the Program and assumes all risks associated with its
193 82 sjacqu01
exercise of rights under this Agreement , including but not limited to
194 82 sjacqu01
the risks and costs of program errors, compliance with applicable laws,
195 82 sjacqu01
damage to or loss of data, programs or equipment, and unavailability or
196 82 sjacqu01
interruption of operations.</p>
197 82 sjacqu01
198 82 sjacqu01
<p><b>6. DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY</b></p>
199 82 sjacqu01
200 82 sjacqu01
<p>EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, NEITHER RECIPIENT
201 82 sjacqu01
NOR ANY CONTRIBUTORS SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT,
202 82 sjacqu01
INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING
203 82 sjacqu01
WITHOUT LIMITATION LOST PROFITS), HOWEVER CAUSED AND ON ANY THEORY OF
204 82 sjacqu01
LIABILITY, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR TORT (INCLUDING
205 82 sjacqu01
NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE) ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THE USE OR
206 82 sjacqu01
DISTRIBUTION OF THE PROGRAM OR THE EXERCISE OF ANY RIGHTS GRANTED
207 82 sjacqu01
HEREUNDER, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.</p>
208 82 sjacqu01
209 82 sjacqu01
<p><b>7. GENERAL</b></p>
210 82 sjacqu01
211 82 sjacqu01
<p>If any provision of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable under
212 82 sjacqu01
applicable law, it shall not affect the validity or enforceability of
213 82 sjacqu01
the remainder of the terms of this Agreement, and without further action
214 82 sjacqu01
by the parties hereto, such provision shall be reformed to the minimum
215 82 sjacqu01
extent necessary to make such provision valid and enforceable.</p>
216 82 sjacqu01
217 82 sjacqu01
<p>If Recipient institutes patent litigation against any entity
218 82 sjacqu01
(including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that the
219 82 sjacqu01
Program itself (excluding combinations of the Program with other
220 82 sjacqu01
software or hardware) infringes such Recipient's patent(s), then such
221 82 sjacqu01
Recipient's rights granted under Section 2(b) shall terminate as of the
222 82 sjacqu01
date such litigation is filed.</p>
223 82 sjacqu01
224 82 sjacqu01
<p>All Recipient's rights under this Agreement shall terminate if it
225 82 sjacqu01
fails to comply with any of the material terms or conditions of this
226 82 sjacqu01
Agreement and does not cure such failure in a reasonable period of time
227 82 sjacqu01
after becoming aware of such noncompliance. If all Recipient's rights
228 82 sjacqu01
under this Agreement terminate, Recipient agrees to cease use and
229 82 sjacqu01
distribution of the Program as soon as reasonably practicable. However,
230 82 sjacqu01
Recipient's obligations under this Agreement and any licenses granted by
231 82 sjacqu01
Recipient relating to the Program shall continue and survive.</p>
232 82 sjacqu01
233 82 sjacqu01
<p>Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute copies of this
234 82 sjacqu01
Agreement, but in order to avoid inconsistency the Agreement is
235 82 sjacqu01
copyrighted and may only be modified in the following manner. The
236 82 sjacqu01
Agreement Steward reserves the right to publish new versions (including
237 82 sjacqu01
revisions) of this Agreement from time to time. No one other than the
238 82 sjacqu01
Agreement Steward has the right to modify this Agreement. The Eclipse
239 82 sjacqu01
Foundation is the initial Agreement Steward. The Eclipse Foundation may
240 82 sjacqu01
assign the responsibility to serve as the Agreement Steward to a
241 82 sjacqu01
suitable separate entity. Each new version of the Agreement will be
242 82 sjacqu01
given a distinguishing version number. The Program (including
243 82 sjacqu01
Contributions) may always be distributed subject to the version of the
244 82 sjacqu01
Agreement under which it was received. In addition, after a new version
245 82 sjacqu01
of the Agreement is published, Contributor may elect to distribute the
246 82 sjacqu01
Program (including its Contributions) under the new version. Except as
247 82 sjacqu01
expressly stated in Sections 2(a) and 2(b) above, Recipient receives no
248 82 sjacqu01
rights or licenses to the intellectual property of any Contributor under
249 82 sjacqu01
this Agreement, whether expressly, by implication, estoppel or
250 82 sjacqu01
otherwise. All rights in the Program not expressly granted under this
251 82 sjacqu01
Agreement are reserved.</p>
252 82 sjacqu01
253 82 sjacqu01
<p>This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of New York and
254 82 sjacqu01
the intellectual property laws of the United States of America. No party
255 82 sjacqu01
to this Agreement will bring a legal action under this Agreement more
256 82 sjacqu01
than one year after the cause of action arose. Each party waives its
257 82 sjacqu01
rights to a jury trial in any resulting litigation.</p>
