+This is the Slackware COPYRIGHT file. This file provides documentation
+about many of the licenses used by components included in Slackware, as
+well as some acknowledgements (some required, some freely given).
+
+This is not meant to be a list of all copyrights and contributors.
+For complete information about all copyrights and licenses, refer to
+the package documentation installed under /usr/doc/ and to the
+included source code.
+
+----------------
+
+The Linux(R) kernel is licensed under the GPL version 2, which can
+be found in the file COPYING. Linus offers his interpretation of how
+the GPL applies to the kernel at the top of the COPYING file found in
+the kernel sources. Here's the quote:
+
+ "NOTE! This copyright does *not* cover user programs that use kernel
+ services by normal system calls - this is merely considered normal use
+ of the kernel, and does *not* fall under the heading of "derived work".
+ Also note that the GPL below is copyrighted by the Free Software
+ Foundation, but the instance of code that it refers to (the Linux
+ kernel) is copyrighted by me and others who actually wrote it.
+
+ Also note that the only valid version of the GPL as far as the kernel
+ is concerned is _this_ particular version of the license (ie v2, not
+ v2.2 or v3.x or whatever), unless explicitly otherwise stated.
+
+ Linus Torvalds"

+Slackware is a registered trademark of Patrick Volkerding and Slackware Linux, Inc.
+Permission to use the Slackware trademark to refer to the Slackware distribution
+of Linux is hereby granted if the following conditions are met:
+
+1. In order to be called "Slackware", the distribution may not be altered
+ from the way it appears on the central FTP site (ftp.slackware.com). This
+ is to protect the integrity, reliability, and reputation of the Slackware
+ distribution. (Note that moving entire directories like "source" or
+ "contrib" to a second CD-ROM is allowable, but leaving them out and
+ distributing a single source-free disc is *not*, as indicated below)
+ Anyone wishing to distribute an altered version must have the changes
+ approved by volkerdi@slackware.com (i.e. certified to be reasonably
+ bug-free). If the changed distribution meets the required standards for
+ quality, then written permission to use the Slackware trademark may be
+ provided.
+
+2. All related source code must be included. (This is also required by the
+ GNU General Public License, and other licenses)
+
+3. Except by written permission from Slackware Linux, Inc., the Slackware
+ trademark may not be used as (or as part of) a product name, company
+ name, or registered domain name.
+
+4. Any approved use of "Slackware" must be followed by a circle-R, and must
+ acknowledge our ownership of the mark.
+
+Note that you can still redistribute a distribution that doesn't meet these
+criteria, you just can't call it "Slackware". Personally, I hate restricting
+things in any way, but these restrictions are not designed to make life
+difficult for anyone. I just want to make sure that bugs are not added to
+commercial redistributions of Slackware. They have been in the past, and
+the resulting requests for help have flooded my mailbox! I'm just trying to
+make sure that I have some recourse when something like that happens.
+
+Any questions about this policy should be directed to:
+ Patrick Volkerding <volkerdi@slackware.com>

+Although every effort has been made to provide a complete source tree for this

+

+3 years, per this section of the GNU General Public License:
+
+ b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three

+ machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
+ distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium

+
+We are also required to do the above, or provide access to copy the source that

+which are licensed under the GPLv3 (see COPYING3 for the complete license).
+
+If you find something is missing online (even if you don't need a copy),
+please point it out to volkerdi@slackware.com so it can be fixed.
+
+If some source code falling under this or a similar license is missing from
+a commercial Slackware release obtained from or manufactured by us, and you
+want a copy, just ask volkerdi@slackware.com and we will be happy to arrange
+for you to get a copy in compliance with the terms of the specific license.
