-
-<p>The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and
-change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your
-freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the software is free for all its
-users. This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's
-software and to any other program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free
-Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU Library General Public License
-instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too.</p>
-
-<p>When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General
-Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies
-of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source code
-or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new
-free programs; and that you know you can do these things.</p>
-
-<p>To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you
-these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These restrictions translate to
-certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you
-modify it.</p>
-
-<p>For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee,
-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 show them these terms so they know
-their rights.</p>
-
-<p>We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you
-this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the
-software.</p>
-
-<p>Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone
-understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If the software is modified
-by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is not
-the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
-authors' reputations.</p>
-
-<p>Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to
-avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will individually obtain patent
-licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it
-clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at
-all.</p>
-
-<p>The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification
-follow.</p>

-
-<p><span class="emphasis"><i class="EMPHASIS">TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING,
-DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION</i></span></p>
-
-<ol type="1">
-<li>
-<p>This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by
-the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of this General Public
-License. The &#8220;Program&#8221;, below, refers to any such program or work, and a
-&#8220;work based on the Program&#8221; means either the Program or any derivative work
-under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
-either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language.
-(Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term
-&#8220;modification&#8221;.) Each licensee is addressed as &#8220;you&#8221;.</p>
-
-<p>Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this
-License; they are outside its scope. The act of running the Program is not restricted,
-and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based
-on the Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is
-true depends on what the Program does.</p>
-</li>
-
-<li>
-<p>You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you
-receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on
-each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
-notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other
-recipients of the Program a copy of this License along with the Program.</p>
-
-<p>You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your
-option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.</p>
-</li>
-
-<li>
-<p>You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it, thus forming a
-work based on the Program, and copy and distribute such modifications or work under the
-terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:</p>
-
-<ol type="a">
-<li>
-<p>You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed
-the files and the date of any change.</p>
-</li>
-
-<li>
-<p>You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part
-contains or is derived from the Program or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at
-no charge to all third parties under the terms of this License.</p>
-</li>
-
-<li>
-<p>If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run, you must cause
-it, when started running for such interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or
-display an announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there
-is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide a warranty) and that users may
-redistribute the program under these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy
-of this License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but does not normally
-print such an announcement, your work based on the Program is not required to print an
-announcement.)</p>
-</li>
-</ol>
-
-<p>These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of
-that work are not derived from the Program, and can be reasonably considered independent
-and separate works in themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
-sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same
-sections as part of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of the
-whole must be on the terms of this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend
-to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.</p>
-
-<p>Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to
-work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to exercise the right to control the
-distribution of derivative or collective works based on the Program.</p>
-
-<p>In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program with the
-Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of a storage or distribution
-medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this License.</p>
-</li>
-
-<li>
-<p>You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under Section 2) in
-object code or executable form under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that
-you also do one of the following:</p>
-
-<ol type="a">
-<li>
-<p>Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must
-be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for
-software interchange; or,</p>
-</li>
-
-<li>
-<p>Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give any third
-party, for a charge no more than your cost of physically performing source distribution,
-a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be distributed
-under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software
-interchange; or,</p>
-</li>
-
-<li>
-<p>Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to distribute
-corresponding source code. (This alternative is allowed only for noncommercial
-distribution and only if you received the program in object code or executable form with
-such an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)</p>
-</li>
-</ol>
-
-<p>The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making
-modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source code means all the source
-code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface definition files, plus
-the scripts used to control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a
-special exception, the source code distributed need not include anything that is normally
-distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major components (compiler,
-kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that
-component itself accompanies the executable.</p>
-
-<p>If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to copy from a
-designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the source code from the same
-place counts as distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
-compelled to copy the source along with the object code.</p>
-</li>
-
-<li>
-<p>You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as expressly
-provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or
-distribute the Program is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this
-License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this
-License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full
-compliance.</p>
-</li>
-
-<li>
-<p>You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However,
-nothing else grants you permission to modify or distribute the Program or its derivative
-works. These actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore,
-by modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate
-your acceptance of this License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying,
-distributing or modifying the Program or works based on it.</p>
-</li>
-
-<li>
-<p>Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program), the
-recipient automatically receives a license from the original licensor to copy, distribute
-or modify the Program subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose any
-further restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein. You are
-not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to this License.</p>
-</li>
-
-<li>
-<p>If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for
-any other reason (not limited to patent issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether
-by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License,
-they do not excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so
-as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other pertinent
-obligations, then as a consequence you may not distribute the Program at all. For
-example, if a patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program
-by all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you
-could satisfy both it and this License would be to refrain entirely from distribution of
-the Program.</p>
-
-<p>If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular
-circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply and the section as a whole
-is intended to apply in other circumstances.</p>
-
-<p>It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other
-property right claims or to contest validity of any such claims; this section has the
-sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free software distribution system, which
-is implemented by public license practices. Many people have made generous contributions
-to the wide range of software distributed through that system in reliance on consistent
-application of that system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is
-willing to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot impose that
-choice.</p>
-
-<p>This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a consequence
-of the rest of this License.</p>
-</li>
-
-<li>
-<p>If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain countries
-either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the original copyright holder who places
-the Program under this License may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation
-excluding those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries
-not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written
-in the body of this License.</p>
-</li>
-
-<li>
-<p>The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the General
-Public License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the
-present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.</p>
-
-<p>Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program specifies a
-version number of this License which applies to it and &#8220;any later version&#8221;,
-you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that version or of
-any later version published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not
-specify a version number of this License, you may choose any version ever published by
-the Free Software Foundation.</p>
-</li>
-
-<li>
-<p>If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs whose
-distribution conditions are different, write to the author to ask for permission. For
-software which is copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free Software
-Foundation; we sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two
-goals of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and of
-promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.</p>
-</li>
-
-<li>
-<p>NO WARRANTY</p>
-
-<p>BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM,
-TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE
-COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM &#8220;AS IS&#8221; WITHOUT
-WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE
-IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE
-RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM
-PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR
-CORRECTION.</p>
-</li>
-
-<li>
-<p>IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING WILL ANY
-COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS
-PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL
-OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM
-(INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES
-SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
-PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH
-DAMAGES.</p>

-Your New Programs</a></h4>
-
-<p>If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest possible use to
-the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it free software which everyone can
-redistribute and change under these terms.</p>
-
-<p>To do so, attach the following notices to the program. It is safest to attach them to
-the start of each source file to most effectively convey the exclusion of warranty; and
-each file should have at least the &#8220;copyright&#8221; line and a pointer to where
-the full notice is found.</p>
-
-<table border="0" bgcolor="#E0E0E0" width="100%">

- Copyright (C) &lt;year&gt; &lt;name of author&gt;

- This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify
- it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by

- This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
- but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of

- GNU General Public License for more details.

-
-<p>Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.</p>
-
-<p>If the program is interactive, make it output a short notice like this when it starts
-in an interactive mode:</p>

-This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it

-</pre>
-</td>

-
-<p>The hypothetical commands `show w' and `show c' should show the appropriate parts of
-the General Public License. Of course, the commands you use may be called something other
-than `show w' and `show c'; they could even be mouse-clicks or menu items--whatever suits
-your program.</p>
-
-<p>You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or your school, if
-any, to sign a &#8220;copyright disclaimer&#8221; for the program, if necessary. Here is
-a sample; alter the names:</p>

-
-<p>This General Public License does not permit incorporating your program into
