149             Claims infringed by Covered Software in the absence of
150             Modifications made by that Contributor.
151
152 3. Distribution Obligations.
153
154     3.1. Availability of Source Code.
155
156     Any Covered Software that You distribute or otherwise make
157     available in Executable form must also be made available in Source
158     Code form and that Source Code form must be distributed only under
159     the terms of this License.  You must include a copy of this
160     License with every copy of the Source Code form of the Covered
161     Software You distribute or otherwise make available.  You must
162     inform recipients of any such Covered Software in Executable form
163     as to how they can obtain such Covered Software in Source Code
164     form in a reasonable manner on or through a medium customarily
165     used for software exchange.
166
167     3.2. Modifications.
168
169     The Modifications that You create or to which You contribute are
170     governed by the terms of this License.  You represent that You
171     believe Your Modifications are Your original creation(s) and/or
172     You have sufficient rights to grant the rights conveyed by this
173     License.
174
175     3.3. Required Notices.
176
177     You must include a notice in each of Your Modifications that
178     identifies You as the Contributor of the Modification.  You may
179     not remove or alter any copyright, patent or trademark notices
180     contained within the Covered Software, or any notices of licensing
181     or any descriptive text giving attribution to any Contributor or
182     the Initial Developer.
183
184     3.4. Application of Additional Terms.
185
186     You may not offer or impose any terms on any Covered Software in
187     Source Code form that alters or restricts the applicable version
188     of this License or the recipients' rights hereunder.  You may
189     choose to offer, and to charge a fee for, warranty, support,
190     indemnity or liability obligations to one or more recipients of
191     Covered Software.  However, you may do so only on Your own behalf,
192     and not on behalf of the Initial Developer or any Contributor.
193     You must make it absolutely clear that any such warranty, support,
194     indemnity or liability obligation is offered by You alone, and You
195     hereby agree to indemnify the Initial Developer and every
196     Contributor for any liability incurred by the Initial Developer or
197     such Contributor as a result of warranty, support, indemnity or
198     liability terms You offer.
199
200     3.5. Distribution of Executable Versions.
201
202     You may distribute the Executable form of the Covered Software
203     under the terms of this License or under the terms of a license of
204     Your choice, which may contain terms different from this License,
205     provided that You are in compliance with the terms of this License
206     and that the license for the Executable form does not attempt to
207     limit or alter the recipient's rights in the Source Code form from
208     the rights set forth in this License.  If You distribute the
209     Covered Software in Executable form under a different license, You
210     must make it absolutely clear that any terms which differ from
211     this License are offered by You alone, not by the Initial
212     Developer or Contributor.  You hereby agree to indemnify the
213     Initial Developer and every Contributor for any liability incurred
214     by the Initial Developer or such Contributor as a result of any
215     such terms You offer.
216
217     3.6. Larger Works.
218
219     You may create a Larger Work by combining Covered Software with
220     other code not governed by the terms of this License and
221     distribute the Larger Work as a single product.  In such a case,
222     You must make sure the requirements of this License are fulfilled
223     for the Covered Software.
224
225 4. Versions of the License.
226
227     4.1. New Versions.
228
229     Sun Microsystems, Inc. is the initial license steward and may
230     publish revised and/or new versions of this License from time to
231     time.  Each version will be given a distinguishing version number.
232     Except as provided in Section 4.3, no one other than the license
233     steward has the right to modify this License.
234
235     4.2. Effect of New Versions.
236
237     You may always continue to use, distribute or otherwise make the
238     Covered Software available under the terms of the version of the
239     License under which You originally received the Covered Software.
240     If the Initial Developer includes a notice in the Original
241     Software prohibiting it from being distributed or otherwise made
242     available under any subsequent version of the License, You must
243     distribute and make the Covered Software available under the terms
244     of the version of the License under which You originally received
245     the Covered Software.  Otherwise, You may also choose to use,
246     distribute or otherwise make the Covered Software available under
247     the terms of any subsequent version of the License published by
248     the license steward.
249
250     4.3. Modified Versions.
251
252     When You are an Initial Developer and You want to create a new
253     license for Your Original Software, You may create and use a
254     modified version of this License if You: (a) rename the license
255     and remove any references to the name of the license steward
256     (except to note that the license differs from this License); and
257     (b) otherwise make it clear that the license contains terms which
258     differ from this License.
259
260 5. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY.
261
262     COVERED SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED UNDER THIS LICENSE ON AN "AS IS"
263     BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED,
264     INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES THAT THE COVERED
265     SOFTWARE IS FREE OF DEFECTS, MERCHANTABLE, FIT FOR A PARTICULAR
266     PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGING.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND
267     PERFORMANCE OF THE COVERED SOFTWARE IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD ANY
268     COVERED SOFTWARE PROVE DEFECTIVE IN ANY RESPECT, YOU (NOT THE
269     INITIAL DEVELOPER OR ANY OTHER CONTRIBUTOR) ASSUME THE COST OF ANY
270     NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.  THIS DISCLAIMER OF
271     WARRANTY CONSTITUTES AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THIS LICENSE.  NO USE OF
272     ANY COVERED SOFTWARE IS AUTHORIZED HEREUNDER EXCEPT UNDER THIS
273     DISCLAIMER.
274
275 6. TERMINATION.
276
277     6.1. This License and the rights granted hereunder will terminate
278     automatically if You fail to comply with terms herein and fail to
279     cure such breach within 30 days of becoming aware of the breach.
280     Provisions which, by their nature, must remain in effect beyond
281     the termination of this License shall survive.
282
283     6.2. If You assert a patent infringement claim (excluding
284     declaratory judgment actions) against Initial Developer or a
285     Contributor (the Initial Developer or Contributor against whom You
286     assert such claim is referred to as "Participant") alleging that
287     the Participant Software (meaning the Contributor Version where
288     the Participant is a Contributor or the Original Software where
289     the Participant is the Initial Developer) directly or indirectly
290     infringes any patent, then any and all rights granted directly or
291     indirectly to You by such Participant, the Initial Developer (if
292     the Initial Developer is not the Participant) and all Contributors
293     under Sections 2.1 and/or 2.2 of this License shall, upon 60 days
294     notice from Participant terminate prospectively and automatically
295     at the expiration of such 60 day notice period, unless if within
296     such 60 day period You withdraw Your claim with respect to the
297     Participant Software against such Participant either unilaterally
298     or pursuant to a written agreement with Participant.
299
300     6.3. In the event of termination under Sections 6.1 or 6.2 above,
301     all end user licenses that have been validly granted by You or any
302     distributor hereunder prior to termination (excluding licenses
303     granted to You by any distributor) shall survive termination.
304
305 7. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.
306
307     UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY, WHETHER TORT
308     (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), CONTRACT, OR OTHERWISE, SHALL YOU, THE
309     INITIAL DEVELOPER, ANY OTHER CONTRIBUTOR, OR ANY DISTRIBUTOR OF
310     COVERED SOFTWARE, OR ANY SUPPLIER OF ANY OF SUCH PARTIES, BE
311     LIABLE TO ANY PERSON FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR
312     CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY CHARACTER INCLUDING, WITHOUT
313     LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOST PROFITS, LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK
314     STOPPAGE, COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, OR ANY AND ALL OTHER
315     COMMERCIAL DAMAGES OR LOSSES, EVEN IF SUCH PARTY SHALL HAVE BEEN
316     INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.  THIS LIMITATION OF
317     LIABILITY SHALL NOT APPLY TO LIABILITY FOR DEATH OR PERSONAL
318     INJURY RESULTING FROM SUCH PARTY'S NEGLIGENCE TO THE EXTENT
319     APPLICABLE LAW PROHIBITS SUCH LIMITATION.  SOME JURISDICTIONS DO
320     NOT ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR
321     CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THIS EXCLUSION AND LIMITATION MAY NOT
322     APPLY TO YOU.
323
324 8. U.S. GOVERNMENT END USERS.
325
326     The Covered Software is a "commercial item," as that term is
327     defined in 48 C.F.R. 2.101 (Oct. 1995), consisting of "commercial
328     computer software" (as that term is defined at 48
329     C.F.R. 252.227-7014(a)(1)) and "commercial computer software
330     documentation" as such terms are used in 48 C.F.R. 12.212
331     (Sept. 1995).  Consistent with 48 C.F.R. 12.212 and 48
332     C.F.R. 227.7202-1 through 227.7202-4 (June 1995), all
333     U.S. Government End Users acquire Covered Software with only those
334     rights set forth herein.  This U.S. Government Rights clause is in
335     lieu of, and supersedes, any other FAR, DFAR, or other clause or
336     provision that addresses Government rights in computer software
337     under this License.
338
339 9. MISCELLANEOUS.
340
341     This License represents the complete agreement concerning subject
342     matter hereof.  If any provision of this License is held to be
343     unenforceable, such provision shall be reformed only to the extent
344     necessary to make it enforceable.  This License shall be governed
345     by the law of the jurisdiction specified in a notice contained
346     within the Original Software (except to the extent applicable law,
347     if any, provides otherwise), excluding such jurisdiction's
348     conflict-of-law provisions.  Any litigation relating to this
349     License shall be subject to the jurisdiction of the courts located
350     in the jurisdiction and venue specified in a notice contained
351     within the Original Software, with the losing party responsible
352     for costs, including, without limitation, court costs and
353     reasonable attorneys' fees and expenses.  The application of the
354     United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale
355     of Goods is expressly excluded.  Any law or regulation which
356     provides that the language of a contract shall be construed
357     against the drafter shall not apply to this License.  You agree
358     that You alone are responsible for compliance with the United
359     States export administration regulations (and the export control
360     laws and regulation of any other countries) when You use,
361     distribute or otherwise make available any Covered Software.
362
363 10. RESPONSIBILITY FOR CLAIMS.
364
365     As between Initial Developer and the Contributors, each party is
366     responsible for claims and damages arising, directly or
367     indirectly, out of its utilization of rights under this License
368     and You agree to work with Initial Developer and Contributors to
369     distribute such responsibility on an equitable basis.  Nothing
370     herein is intended or shall be deemed to constitute any admission
371     of liability.
372
