  23. Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this
  24. license document, but changing it is not allowed.
  25. ### Preamble
  26. The GNU Affero General Public License is a free, copyleft license for
  27. software and other kinds of works, specifically designed to ensure
  28. cooperation with the community in the case of network server software.
  29. The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed
  30. to take away your freedom to share and change the works. By contrast,
  31. our General Public Licenses are intended to guarantee your freedom to
  32. share and change all versions of a program--to make sure it remains
  33. free software for all its users.
  34. When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
  35. price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
  36. have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
  37. them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you
  38. want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new
  39. free programs, and that you know you can do these things.
  40. Developers that use our General Public Licenses protect your rights
  41. with two steps: (1) assert copyright on the software, and (2) offer
  42. you this License which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute
  43. and/or modify the software.
  44. A secondary benefit of defending all users' freedom is that
  45. improvements made in alternate versions of the program, if they
  46. receive widespread use, become available for other developers to
  47. incorporate. Many developers of free software are heartened and
  48. encouraged by the resulting cooperation. However, in the case of
  49. software used on network servers, this result may fail to come about.
  50. The GNU General Public License permits making a modified version and
  51. letting the public access it on a server without ever releasing its
  52. source code to the public.
  53. The GNU Affero General Public License is designed specifically to
  54. ensure that, in such cases, the modified source code becomes available
  55. to the community. It requires the operator of a network server to
  56. provide the source code of the modified version running there to the
  57. users of that server. Therefore, public use of a modified version, on
  58. a publicly accessible server, gives the public access to the source
  59. code of the modified version.
  60. An older license, called the Affero General Public License and
  61. published by Affero, was designed to accomplish similar goals. This is
  62. a different license, not a version of the Affero GPL, but Affero has
  63. released a new version of the Affero GPL which permits relicensing
  64. under this license.
  65. The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
  66. modification follow.
  68. #### 0. Definitions.
  69. "This License" refers to version 3 of the GNU Affero General Public
  70. License.
  71. "Copyright" also means copyright-like laws that apply to other kinds
  72. of works, such as semiconductor masks.
  73. "The Program" refers to any copyrightable work licensed under this
  74. License. Each licensee is addressed as "you". "Licensees" and
  75. "recipients" may be individuals or organizations.
  76. To "modify" a work means to copy from or adapt all or part of the work
  77. in a fashion requiring copyright permission, other than the making of
  78. an exact copy. The resulting work is called a "modified version" of
  79. the earlier work or a work "based on" the earlier work.
  80. A "covered work" means either the unmodified Program or a work based
  81. on the Program.
  82. To "propagate" a work means to do anything with it that, without
  83. permission, would make you directly or secondarily liable for
  84. infringement under applicable copyright law, except executing it on a
  85. computer or modifying a private copy. Propagation includes copying,
  86. distribution (with or without modification), making available to the
  87. public, and in some countries other activities as well.
  88. To "convey" a work means any kind of propagation that enables other
  89. parties to make or receive copies. Mere interaction with a user
  90. through a computer network, with no transfer of a copy, is not
  91. conveying.
  92. An interactive user interface displays "Appropriate Legal Notices" to
  93. the extent that it includes a convenient and prominently visible
  94. feature that (1) displays an appropriate copyright notice, and (2)
  95. tells the user that there is no warranty for the work (except to the
  96. extent that warranties are provided), that licensees may convey the
  97. work under this License, and how to view a copy of this License. If
  98. the interface presents a list of user commands or options, such as a
  99. menu, a prominent item in the list meets this criterion.
  100. #### 1. Source Code.
  101. The "source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work for
  102. making modifications to it. "Object code" means any non-source form of
  103. a work.
  104. A "Standard Interface" means an interface that either is an official
  105. standard defined by a recognized standards body, or, in the case of
  106. interfaces specified for a particular programming language, one that
  107. is widely used among developers working in that language.
  108. The "System Libraries" of an executable work include anything, other
  109. than the work as a whole, that (a) is included in the normal form of
  110. packaging a Major Component, but which is not part of that Major
  111. Component, and (b) serves only to enable use of the work with that
  112. Major Component, or to implement a Standard Interface for which an
  113. implementation is available to the public in source code form. A
  114. "Major Component", in this context, means a major essential component
  115. (kernel, window system, and so on) of the specific operating system
  116. (if any) on which the executable work runs, or a compiler used to
  117. produce the work, or an object code interpreter used to run it.
  118. The "Corresponding Source" for a work in object code form means all
  119. the source code needed to generate, install, and (for an executable
  120. work) run the object code and to modify the work, including scripts to
  121. control those activities. However, it does not include the work's
  122. System Libraries, or general-purpose tools or generally available free
  123. programs which are used unmodified in performing those activities but
  124. which are not part of the work. For example, Corresponding Source
  125. includes interface definition files associated with source files for
  126. the work, and the source code for shared libraries and dynamically
  127. linked subprograms that the work is specifically designed to require,
  128. such as by intimate data communication or control flow between those
  129. subprograms and other parts of the work.
  130. The Corresponding Source need not include anything that users can
  131. regenerate automatically from other parts of the Corresponding Source.
  132. The Corresponding Source for a work in source code form is that same
  133. work.
  134. #### 2. Basic Permissions.
  135. All rights granted under this License are granted for the term of
  136. copyright on the Program, and are irrevocable provided the stated
  137. conditions are met. This License explicitly affirms your unlimited
  138. permission to run the unmodified Program. The output from running a
  139. covered work is covered by this License only if the output, given its
  140. content, constitutes a covered work. This License acknowledges your
  141. rights of fair use or other equivalent, as provided by copyright law.
  142. You may make, run and propagate covered works that you do not convey,
  143. without conditions so long as your license otherwise remains in force.
  144. You may convey covered works to others for the sole purpose of having
  145. them make modifications exclusively for you, or provide you with
  146. facilities for running those works, provided that you comply with the
  147. terms of this License in conveying all material for which you do not
  148. control copyright. Those thus making or running the covered works for
  149. you must do so exclusively on your behalf, under your direction and
  150. control, on terms that prohibit them from making any copies of your
  151. copyrighted material outside their relationship with you.
  152. Conveying under any other circumstances is permitted solely under the
  153. conditions stated below. Sublicensing is not allowed; section 10 makes
  154. it unnecessary.
  155. #### 3. Protecting Users' Legal Rights From Anti-Circumvention Law.
  156. No covered work shall be deemed part of an effective technological
  157. measure under any applicable law fulfilling obligations under article
  158. 11 of the WIPO copyright treaty adopted on 20 December 1996, or
  159. similar laws prohibiting or restricting circumvention of such
  160. measures.
  161. When you convey a covered work, you waive any legal power to forbid
  162. circumvention of technological measures to the extent such
  163. circumvention is effected by exercising rights under this License with
  164. respect to the covered work, and you disclaim any intention to limit
  165. operation or modification of the work as a means of enforcing, against
  166. the work's users, your or third parties' legal rights to forbid
  167. circumvention of technological measures.
  168. #### 4. Conveying Verbatim Copies.
  169. You may convey verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you
  170. receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
  171. appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice;
  172. keep intact all notices stating that this License and any
  173. non-permissive terms added in accord with section 7 apply to the code;
  174. keep intact all notices of the absence of any warranty; and give all
  175. recipients a copy of this License along with the Program.
  176. You may charge any price or no price for each copy that you convey,
  177. and you may offer support or warranty protection for a fee.
  178. #### 5. Conveying Modified Source Versions.
  179. You may convey a work based on the Program, or the modifications to
  180. produce it from the Program, in the form of source code under the
  181. terms of section 4, provided that you also meet all of these
  182. conditions:
  183. - a) The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified
  184. it, and giving a relevant date.
  185. - b) The work must carry prominent notices stating that it is
  186. released under this License and any conditions added under
  187. section 7. This requirement modifies the requirement in section 4
  188. to "keep intact all notices".
  189. - c) You must license the entire work, as a whole, under this
  190. License to anyone who comes into possession of a copy. This
  191. License will therefore apply, along with any applicable section 7
  192. additional terms, to the whole of the work, and all its parts,
  193. regardless of how they are packaged. This License gives no
  194. permission to license the work in any other way, but it does not
  195. invalidate such permission if you have separately received it.
  196. - d) If the work has interactive user interfaces, each must display
  197. Appropriate Legal Notices; however, if the Program has interactive
  198. interfaces that do not display Appropriate Legal Notices, your
  199. work need not make them do so.
  200. A compilation of a covered work with other separate and independent
  201. works, which are not by their nature extensions of the covered work,
  202. and which are not combined with it such as to form a larger program,
  203. in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an
  204. "aggregate" if the compilation and its resulting copyright are not
  205. used to limit the access or legal rights of the compilation's users
  206. beyond what the individual works permit. Inclusion of a covered work
  207. in an aggregate does not cause this License to apply to the other
  208. parts of the aggregate.
  209. #### 6. Conveying Non-Source Forms.
  210. You may convey a covered work in object code form under the terms of
  211. sections 4 and 5, provided that you also convey the machine-readable
  212. Corresponding Source under the terms of this License, in one of these
  213. ways:
  214. - a) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
  215. (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by the
  216. Corresponding Source fixed on a durable physical medium
  217. customarily used for software interchange.
  218. - b) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
  219. (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by a
  220. written offer, valid for at least three years and valid for as
  221. long as you offer spare parts or customer support for that product
  222. model, to give anyone who possesses the object code either (1) a
  223. copy of the Corresponding Source for all the software in the
  224. product that is covered by this License, on a durable physical
  225. medium customarily used for software interchange, for a price no
  226. more than your reasonable cost of physically performing this
  227. conveying of source, or (2) access to copy the Corresponding
  228. Source from a network server at no charge.
  229. - c) Convey individual copies of the object code with a copy of the
  230. written offer to provide the Corresponding Source. This
  231. alternative is allowed only occasionally and noncommercially, and
  232. only if you received the object code with such an offer, in accord
  233. with subsection 6b.
  234. - d) Convey the object code by offering access from a designated
  235. place (gratis or for a charge), and offer equivalent access to the
  236. Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no
  237. further charge. You need not require recipients to copy the
  238. Corresponding Source along with the object code. If the place to
  239. copy the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source
  240. may be on a different server (operated by you or a third party)
  241. that supports equivalent copying facilities, provided you maintain
  242. clear directions next to the object code saying where to find the
  243. Corresponding Source. Regardless of what server hosts the
  244. Corresponding Source, you remain obligated to ensure that it is
  245. available for as long as needed to satisfy these requirements.
  246. - e) Convey the object code using peer-to-peer transmission,
  247. provided you inform other peers where the object code and
  248. Corresponding Source of the work are being offered to the general
  249. public at no charge under subsection 6d.
  250. A separable portion of the object code, whose source code is excluded
  251. from the Corresponding Source as a System Library, need not be
  252. included in conveying the object code work.
  253. A "User Product" is either (1) a "consumer product", which means any
  254. tangible personal property which is normally used for personal,
  255. family, or household purposes, or (2) anything designed or sold for
  256. incorporation into a dwelling. In determining whether a product is a
  257. consumer product, doubtful cases shall be resolved in favor of
  258. coverage. For a particular product received by a particular user,
  259. "normally used" refers to a typical or common use of that class of
  260. product, regardless of the status of the particular user or of the way
  261. in which the particular user actually uses, or expects or is expected
  262. to use, the product. A product is a consumer product regardless of
  263. whether the product has substantial commercial, industrial or
  264. non-consumer uses, unless such uses represent the only significant
  265. mode of use of the product.
  266. "Installation Information" for a User Product means any methods,
  267. procedures, authorization keys, or other information required to
  268. install and execute modified versions of a covered work in that User
  269. Product from a modified version of its Corresponding Source. The
  270. information must suffice to ensure that the continued functioning of
  271. the modified object code is in no case prevented or interfered with
  272. solely because modification has been made.
  273. If you convey an object code work under this section in, or with, or
  274. specifically for use in, a User Product, and the conveying occurs as
  275. part of a transaction in which the right of possession and use of the
  276. User Product is transferred to the recipient in perpetuity or for a
  277. fixed term (regardless of how the transaction is characterized), the
  278. Corresponding Source conveyed under this section must be accompanied
  279. by the Installation Information. But this requirement does not apply
  280. if neither you nor any third party retains the ability to install
  281. modified object code on the User Product (for example, the work has
  282. been installed in ROM).
  283. The requirement to provide Installation Information does not include a
  284. requirement to continue to provide support service, warranty, or
  285. updates for a work that has been modified or installed by the
  286. recipient, or for the User Product in which it has been modified or
  287. installed. Access to a network may be denied when the modification
  288. itself materially and adversely affects the operation of the network
  289. or violates the rules and protocols for communication across the
  290. network.
  291. Corresponding Source conveyed, and Installation Information provided,
  292. in accord with this section must be in a format that is publicly
  293. documented (and with an implementation available to the public in
  294. source code form), and must require no special password or key for
  295. unpacking, reading or copying.
  296. #### 7. Additional Terms.
  297. "Additional permissions" are terms that supplement the terms of this
  298. License by making exceptions from one or more of its conditions.
  299. Additional permissions that are applicable to the entire Program shall
  300. be treated as though they were included in this License, to the extent
  301. that they are valid under applicable law. If additional permissions
  302. apply only to part of the Program, that part may be used separately
  303. under those permissions, but the entire Program remains governed by
  304. this License without regard to the additional permissions.
  305. When you convey a copy of a covered work, you may at your option
  306. remove any additional permissions from that copy, or from any part of
  307. it. (Additional permissions may be written to require their own
  308. removal in certain cases when you modify the work.) You may place
  309. additional permissions on material, added by you to a covered work,
  310. for which you have or can give appropriate copyright permission.
  311. Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, for material you
  312. add to a covered work, you may (if authorized by the copyright holders
  313. of that material) supplement the terms of this License with terms:
  314. - a) Disclaiming warranty or limiting liability differently from the
  315. terms of sections 15 and 16 of this License; or
  316. - b) Requiring preservation of specified reasonable legal notices or
  317. author attributions in that material or in the Appropriate Legal
  318. Notices displayed by works containing it; or
  319. - c) Prohibiting misrepresentation of the origin of that material,
  320. or requiring that modified versions of such material be marked in
  321. reasonable ways as different from the original version; or
  322. - d) Limiting the use for publicity purposes of names of licensors
  323. or authors of the material; or
  324. - e) Declining to grant rights under trademark law for use of some
  325. trade names, trademarks, or service marks; or
  326. - f) Requiring indemnification of licensors and authors of that
  327. material by anyone who conveys the material (or modified versions
  328. of it) with contractual assumptions of liability to the recipient,
  329. for any liability that these contractual assumptions directly
  330. impose on those licensors and authors.
  331. All other non-permissive additional terms are considered "further
  332. restrictions" within the meaning of section 10. If the Program as you
  333. received it, or any part of it, contains a notice stating that it is
  334. governed by this License along with a term that is a further
  335. restriction, you may remove that term. If a license document contains
  336. a further restriction but permits relicensing or conveying under this
  337. License, you may add to a covered work material governed by the terms
  338. of that license document, provided that the further restriction does
  339. not survive such relicensing or conveying.
  340. If you add terms to a covered work in accord with this section, you
  341. must place, in the relevant source files, a statement of the
  342. additional terms that apply to those files, or a notice indicating
  343. where to find the applicable terms.
  344. Additional terms, permissive or non-permissive, may be stated in the
  345. form of a separately written license, or stated as exceptions; the
  346. above requirements apply either way.
  347. #### 8. Termination.
  348. You may not propagate or modify a covered work except as expressly
  349. provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to propagate or
  350. modify it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under
  351. this License (including any patent licenses granted under the third
  352. paragraph of section 11).
  353. However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your license
  354. from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a) provisionally,
  355. unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and finally
  356. terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright holder
  357. fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means prior to
  358. 60 days after the cessation.
  359. Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is
  360. reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the
  361. violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you have
  362. received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that
  363. copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after
  364. your receipt of the notice.
  365. Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the
  366. licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under
  367. this License. If your rights have been terminated and not permanently
  368. reinstated, you do not qualify to receive new licenses for the same
  369. material under section 10.
  370. #### 9. Acceptance Not Required for Having Copies.
  371. You are not required to accept this License in order to receive or run
  372. a copy of the Program. Ancillary propagation of a covered work
  373. occurring solely as a consequence of using peer-to-peer transmission
  374. to receive a copy likewise does not require acceptance. However,
  375. nothing other than this License grants you permission to propagate or
  376. modify any covered work. These actions infringe copyright if you do
  377. not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or propagating a
  378. covered work, you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so.
  379. #### 10. Automatic Licensing of Downstream Recipients.
  380. Each time you convey a covered work, the recipient automatically
  381. receives a license from the original licensors, to run, modify and
  382. propagate that work, subject to this License. You are not responsible
  383. for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License.
  384. An "entity transaction" is a transaction transferring control of an
  385. organization, or substantially all assets of one, or subdividing an
  386. organization, or merging organizations. If propagation of a covered
  387. work results from an entity transaction, each party to that
  388. transaction who receives a copy of the work also receives whatever
  389. licenses to the work the party's predecessor in interest had or could
  390. give under the previous paragraph, plus a right to possession of the
  391. Corresponding Source of the work from the predecessor in interest, if
  392. the predecessor has it or can get it with reasonable efforts.
  393. You may not impose any further restrictions on the exercise of the
  394. rights granted or affirmed under this License. For example, you may
  395. not impose a license fee, royalty, or other charge for exercise of
  396. rights granted under this License, and you may not initiate litigation
  397. (including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that
  398. any patent claim is infringed by making, using, selling, offering for
  399. sale, or importing the Program or any portion of it.
  400. #### 11. Patents.
  401. A "contributor" is a copyright holder who authorizes use under this
  402. License of the Program or a work on which the Program is based. The
  403. work thus licensed is called the contributor's "contributor version".
  404. A contributor's "essential patent claims" are all patent claims owned
  405. or controlled by the contributor, whether already acquired or
  406. hereafter acquired, that would be infringed by some manner, permitted
  407. by this License, of making, using, or selling its contributor version,
  408. but do not include claims that would be infringed only as a
  409. consequence of further modification of the contributor version. For
  410. purposes of this definition, "control" includes the right to grant
  411. patent sublicenses in a manner consistent with the requirements of
  412. this License.
  413. Each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free
  414. patent license under the contributor's essential patent claims, to
  415. make, use, sell, offer for sale, import and otherwise run, modify and
  416. propagate the contents of its contributor version.
  417. In the following three paragraphs, a "patent license" is any express
  418. agreement or commitment, however denominated, not to enforce a patent
  419. (such as an express permission to practice a patent or covenant not to
  420. sue for patent infringement). To "grant" such a patent license to a
  421. party means to make such an agreement or commitment not to enforce a
  422. patent against the party.
  423. If you convey a covered work, knowingly relying on a patent license,
  424. and the Corresponding Source of the work is not available for anyone
  425. to copy, free of charge and under the terms of this License, through a
  426. publicly available network server or other readily accessible means,
  427. then you must either (1) cause the Corresponding Source to be so
  428. available, or (2) arrange to deprive yourself of the benefit of the
  429. patent license for this particular work, or (3) arrange, in a manner
  430. consistent with the requirements of this License, to extend the patent
  431. license to downstream recipients. "Knowingly relying" means you have
  432. actual knowledge that, but for the patent license, your conveying the
  433. covered work in a country, or your recipient's use of the covered work
  434. in a country, would infringe one or more identifiable patents in that
  435. country that you have reason to believe are valid.
  436. If, pursuant to or in connection with a single transaction or
  437. arrangement, you convey, or propagate by procuring conveyance of, a
  438. covered work, and grant a patent license to some of the parties
  439. receiving the covered work authorizing them to use, propagate, modify
  440. or convey a specific copy of the covered work, then the patent license
  441. you grant is automatically extended to all recipients of the covered
  442. work and works based on it.
  443. A patent license is "discriminatory" if it does not include within the
  444. scope of its coverage, prohibits the exercise of, or is conditioned on
  445. the non-exercise of one or more of the rights that are specifically
  446. granted under this License. You may not convey a covered work if you
  447. are a party to an arrangement with a third party that is in the
  448. business of distributing software, under which you make payment to the
  449. third party based on the extent of your activity of conveying the
  450. work, and under which the third party grants, to any of the parties
  451. who would receive the covered work from you, a discriminatory patent
  452. license (a) in connection with copies of the covered work conveyed by
  453. you (or copies made from those copies), or (b) primarily for and in
  454. connection with specific products or compilations that contain the
  455. covered work, unless you entered into that arrangement, or that patent
  456. license was granted, prior to 28 March 2007.
  457. Nothing in this License shall be construed as excluding or limiting
  458. any implied license or other defenses to infringement that may
  459. otherwise be available to you under applicable patent law.
  460. #### 12. No Surrender of Others' Freedom.
  461. If conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
  462. otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
  463. excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot convey a
  464. covered work so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under
  465. this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a
  466. consequence you may not convey it at all. For example, if you agree to
  467. terms that obligate you to collect a royalty for further conveying
  468. from those to whom you convey the Program, the only way you could
  469. satisfy both those terms and this License would be to refrain entirely
  470. from conveying the Program.
  471. #### 13. Remote Network Interaction; Use with the GNU General Public License.
  472. Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, if you modify the
  473. Program, your modified version must prominently offer all users
  474. interacting with it remotely through a computer network (if your
  475. version supports such interaction) an opportunity to receive the
  476. Corresponding Source of your version by providing access to the
  477. Corresponding Source from a network server at no charge, through some
  478. standard or customary means of facilitating copying of software. This
  479. Corresponding Source shall include the Corresponding Source for any
  480. work covered by version 3 of the GNU General Public License that is
  481. incorporated pursuant to the following paragraph.
  482. Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, you have
  483. permission to link or combine any covered work with a work licensed
  484. under version 3 of the GNU General Public License into a single
  485. combined work, and to convey the resulting work. The terms of this
  486. License will continue to apply to the part which is the covered work,
  487. but the work with which it is combined will remain governed by version
  488. 3 of the GNU General Public License.
  489. #### 14. Revised Versions of this License.
  490. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
  491. of the GNU Affero General Public License from time to time. Such new
  492. versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may
  493. differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.
  494. Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
  495. specifies that a certain numbered version of the GNU Affero General
  496. Public License "or any later version" applies to it, you have the
  497. option of following the terms and conditions either of that numbered
  498. version or of any later version published by the Free Software
  499. Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of the
  500. GNU Affero General Public License, you may choose any version ever
  501. published by the Free Software Foundation.
  502. If the Program specifies that a proxy can decide which future versions
  503. of the GNU Affero General Public License can be used, that proxy's
  504. public statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you
  505. to choose that version for the Program.
  506. Later license versions may give you additional or different
  507. permissions. However, no additional obligations are imposed on any
  508. author or copyright holder as a result of your choosing to follow a
  509. later version.
  510. #### 15. Disclaimer of Warranty.
  520. #### 16. Limitation of Liability.
  530. #### 17. Interpretation of Sections 15 and 16.
  531. If the disclaimer of warranty and limitation of liability provided
  532. above cannot be given local legal effect according to their terms,
  533. reviewing courts shall apply local law that most closely approximates
  534. an absolute waiver of all civil liability in connection with the
  535. Program, unless a warranty or assumption of liability accompanies a
  536. copy of the Program in return for a fee.
  538. ### How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
  539. If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
  540. possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
  541. free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these
  542. terms.
  543. To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest to
  544. attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively state
  545. the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least the
  546. "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
  547. <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
  548. Copyright (C) <year> <name of author>
  549. This program is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify
  550. it under the terms of the GNU Affero General Public License as
  551. published by the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the
  552. License, or (at your option) any later version.
  553. This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
  554. but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
  556. GNU Affero General Public License for more details.
  557. You should have received a copy of the GNU Affero General Public License
  558. along with this program. If not, see <>.
  559. Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper
  560. mail.
  561. If your software can interact with users remotely through a computer
  562. network, you should also make sure that it provides a way for users to
  563. get its source. For example, if your program is a web application, its
  564. interface could display a "Source" link that leads users to an archive
  565. of the code. There are many ways you could offer source, and different
  566. solutions will be better for different programs; see section 13 for
  567. the specific requirements.
  568. You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or
  569. school, if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if
  570. necessary. For more information on this, and how to apply and follow
  571. the GNU AGPL, see <>.
