120            (b) under Patent Claims infringed by the making, using, or

140            infringed by Covered Code in the absence of Modifications made by
141            that Contributor.
142 
143  3. Distribution Obligations.
144 
145       3.1. Application of License.
146       The Modifications which You create or to which You contribute are
147       governed by the terms of this License, including without limitation
148       Section 2.2. The Source Code version of Covered Code may be
149       distributed only under the terms of this License or a future version
150       of this License released under Section 6.1, and You must include a
151       copy of this License with every copy of the Source Code You
152       distribute. You may not offer or impose any terms on any Source Code
153       version that alters or restricts the applicable version of this
154       License or the recipients' rights hereunder. However, You may include
155       an additional document offering the additional rights described in
156       Section 3.5.
157 
158       3.2. Availability of Source Code.
159       Any Modification which You create or to which You contribute must be
160       made available in Source Code form under the terms of this License
161       either on the same media as an Executable version or via an accepted
162       Electronic Distribution Mechanism to anyone to whom you made an
163       Executable version available; and if made available via Electronic
164       Distribution Mechanism, must remain available for at least twelve (12)
165       months after the date it initially became available, or at least six
166       (6) months after a subsequent version of that particular Modification
167       has been made available to such recipients. You are responsible for
168       ensuring that the Source Code version remains available even if the
169       Electronic Distribution Mechanism is maintained by a third party.
170 
171       3.3. Description of Modifications.
172       You must cause all Covered Code to which You contribute to contain a
173       file documenting the changes You made to create that Covered Code and
174       the date of any change. You must include a prominent statement that
175       the Modification is derived, directly or indirectly, from Original
176       Code provided by the Initial Developer and including the name of the
177       Initial Developer in (a) the Source Code, and (b) in any notice in an
178       Executable version or related documentation in which You describe the
179       origin or ownership of the Covered Code.
180 
181       3.4. Intellectual Property Matters
182            (a) Third Party Claims.
183            If Contributor has knowledge that a license under a third party's
184            intellectual property rights is required to exercise the rights
185            granted by such Contributor under Sections 2.1 or 2.2,
186            Contributor must include a text file with the Source Code
187            distribution titled "LEGAL" which describes the claim and the
188            party making the claim in sufficient detail that a recipient will
189            know whom to contact. If Contributor obtains such knowledge after
190            the Modification is made available as described in Section 3.2,
191            Contributor shall promptly modify the LEGAL file in all copies
192            Contributor makes available thereafter and shall take other steps
193            (such as notifying appropriate mailing lists or newsgroups)
194            reasonably calculated to inform those who received the Covered
195            Code that new knowledge has been obtained.
196 
197            (b) Contributor APIs.
198            If Contributor's Modifications include an application programming
199            interface and Contributor has knowledge of patent licenses which
200            are reasonably necessary to implement that API, Contributor must
201            also include this information in the LEGAL file.
202 
203                 (c) Representations.
204            Contributor represents that, except as disclosed pursuant to
205            Section 3.4(a) above, Contributor believes that Contributor's
206            Modifications are Contributor's original creation(s) and/or
207            Contributor has sufficient rights to grant the rights conveyed by
208            this License.
209 
210       3.5. Required Notices.
211       You must duplicate the notice in Exhibit A in each file of the Source
212       Code. If it is not possible to put such notice in a particular Source
213       Code file due to its structure, then You must include such notice in a
214       location (such as a relevant directory) where a user would be likely
215       to look for such a notice. If You created one or more Modification(s)
216       You may add your name as a Contributor to the notice described in
217       Exhibit A. You must also duplicate this License in any documentation
218       for the Source Code where You describe recipients' rights or ownership
219       rights relating to Covered Code. You may choose to offer, and to
220       charge a fee for, warranty, support, indemnity or liability
221       obligations to one or more recipients of Covered Code. However, You
222       may do so only on Your own behalf, and not on behalf of the Initial
223       Developer or any Contributor. You must make it absolutely clear than
224       any such warranty, support, indemnity or liability obligation is
225       offered by You alone, and You hereby agree to indemnify the Initial
226       Developer and every Contributor for any liability incurred by the
227       Initial Developer or such Contributor as a result of warranty,
228       support, indemnity or liability terms You offer.
229 
230       3.6. Distribution of Executable Versions.
231       You may distribute Covered Code in Executable form only if the
232       requirements of Section 3.1-3.5 have been met for that Covered Code,
233       and if You include a notice stating that the Source Code version of
234       the Covered Code is available under the terms of this License,
235       including a description of how and where You have fulfilled the
236       obligations of Section 3.2. The notice must be conspicuously included
237       in any notice in an Executable version, related documentation or
238       collateral in which You describe recipients' rights relating to the
239       Covered Code. You may distribute the Executable version of Covered
240       Code or ownership rights under a license of Your choice, which may
241       contain terms different from this License, provided that You are in
242       compliance with the terms of this License and that the license for the
243       Executable version does not attempt to limit or alter the recipient's
244       rights in the Source Code version from the rights set forth in this
245       License. If You distribute the Executable version under a different
246       license You must make it absolutely clear that any terms which differ
247       from this License are offered by You alone, not by the Initial
248       Developer or any Contributor. You hereby agree to indemnify the
249       Initial Developer and every Contributor for any liability incurred by
250       the Initial Developer or such Contributor as a result of any such
251       terms You offer.
252 
253       3.7. Larger Works.
254       You may create a Larger Work by combining Covered Code with other code
255       not governed by the terms of this License and distribute the Larger
256       Work as a single product. In such a case, You must make sure the
257       requirements of this License are fulfilled for the Covered Code.
258 
259  4. Inability to Comply Due to Statute or Regulation.
260 
261       If it is impossible for You to comply with any of the terms of this
262       License with respect to some or all of the Covered Code due to
263       statute, judicial order, or regulation then You must: (a) comply with
264       the terms of this License to the maximum extent possible; and (b)
265       describe the limitations and the code they affect. Such description
266       must be included in the LEGAL file described in Section 3.4 and must
267       be included with all distributions of the Source Code. Except to the
268       extent prohibited by statute or regulation, such description must be
269       sufficiently detailed for a recipient of ordinary skill to be able to
270       understand it.
271 
272  5. Application of this License.
273 
274       This License applies to code to which the Initial Developer has
275       attached the notice in Exhibit A and to related Covered Code.
276 
277  6. Versions of the License.
278 
279       6.1. New Versions.
280       Netscape Communications Corporation ("Netscape") may publish revised
281       and/or new versions of the License from time to time. Each version
282       will be given a distinguishing version number.
283 
284       6.2. Effect of New Versions.
285       Once Covered Code has been published under a particular version of the
286       License, You may always continue to use it under the terms of that
287       version. You may also choose to use such Covered Code under the terms
288       of any subsequent version of the License published by Netscape. No one
289       other than Netscape has the right to modify the terms applicable to
290       Covered Code created under this License.
291 
292       6.3. Derivative Works.
293       If You create or use a modified version of this License (which you may
294       only do in order to apply it to code which is not already Covered Code
295       governed by this License), You must (a) rename Your license so that
296       the phrases "Mozilla", "MOZILLAPL", "MOZPL", "Netscape",
297       "MPL", "NPL" or any confusingly similar phrase do not appear in your
298       license (except to note that your license differs from this License)
299       and (b) otherwise make it clear that Your version of the license
300       contains terms which differ from the Mozilla Public License and
301       Netscape Public License. (Filling in the name of the Initial
302       Developer, Original Code or Contributor in the notice described in
303       Exhibit A shall not of themselves be deemed to be modifications of
304       this License.)
305 
306  7. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY.
307 
308       COVERED CODE IS PROVIDED UNDER THIS LICENSE ON AN "AS IS" BASIS,
309       WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING,
310       WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES THAT THE COVERED CODE IS FREE OF
311       DEFECTS, MERCHANTABLE, FIT FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGING.
312       THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE COVERED CODE
313       IS WITH YOU. SHOULD ANY COVERED CODE PROVE DEFECTIVE IN ANY RESPECT,
314       YOU (NOT THE INITIAL DEVELOPER OR ANY OTHER CONTRIBUTOR) ASSUME THE
315       COST OF ANY NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION. THIS DISCLAIMER
316       OF WARRANTY CONSTITUTES AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THIS LICENSE. NO USE OF
317       ANY COVERED CODE IS AUTHORIZED HEREUNDER EXCEPT UNDER THIS DISCLAIMER.
318 
319  8. TERMINATION.
320 
321       8.1. This License and the rights granted hereunder will terminate
322       automatically if You fail to comply with terms herein and fail to cure
323       such breach within 30 days of becoming aware of the breach. All
324       sublicenses to the Covered Code which are properly granted shall
325       survive any termination of this License. Provisions which, by their
326       nature, must remain in effect beyond the termination of this License
327       shall survive.
328 
329       8.2. If You initiate litigation by asserting a patent infringement
330       claim (excluding declatory judgment actions) against Initial Developer
331       or a Contributor (the Initial Developer or Contributor against whom
332       You file such action is referred to as "Participant") alleging that:
333 
334       (a) such Participant's Contributor Version directly or indirectly
335       infringes any patent, then any and all rights granted by such
336       Participant to You under Sections 2.1 and/or 2.2 of this License
337       shall, upon 60 days notice from Participant terminate prospectively,
338       unless if within 60 days after receipt of notice You either: (i)
339       agree in writing to pay Participant a mutually agreeable reasonable
340       royalty for Your past and future use of Modifications made by such
341       Participant, or (ii) withdraw Your litigation claim with respect to
342       the Contributor Version against such Participant. If within 60 days
343       of notice, a reasonable royalty and payment arrangement are not
344       mutually agreed upon in writing by the parties or the litigation claim
345       is not withdrawn, the rights granted by Participant to You under
346       Sections 2.1 and/or 2.2 automatically terminate at the expiration of
347       the 60 day notice period specified above.
348 
349       (b) any software, hardware, or device, other than such Participant's
350       Contributor Version, directly or indirectly infringes any patent, then
351       any rights granted to You by such Participant under Sections 2.1(b)
352       and 2.2(b) are revoked effective as of the date You first made, used,
353       sold, distributed, or had made, Modifications made by that
354       Participant.
355 
356       8.3. If You assert a patent infringement claim against Participant
357       alleging that such Participant's Contributor Version directly or
358       indirectly infringes any patent where such claim is resolved (such as
359       by license or settlement) prior to the initiation of patent
360       infringement litigation, then the reasonable value of the licenses
361       granted by such Participant under Sections 2.1 or 2.2 shall be taken
362       into account in determining the amount or value of any payment or
363       license.
364 
365       8.4. In the event of termination under Sections 8.1 or 8.2 above,
366       all end user license agreements (excluding distributors and resellers)
367       which have been validly granted by You or any distributor hereunder
368       prior to termination shall survive termination.
369 
370  9. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.
371 
372       UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY, WHETHER TORT
373       (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), CONTRACT, OR OTHERWISE, SHALL YOU, THE INITIAL
374       DEVELOPER, ANY OTHER CONTRIBUTOR, OR ANY DISTRIBUTOR OF COVERED CODE,
375       OR ANY SUPPLIER OF ANY OF SUCH PARTIES, BE LIABLE TO ANY PERSON FOR
376       ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY
377       CHARACTER INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF GOODWILL,
378       WORK STOPPAGE, COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, OR ANY AND ALL OTHER
379       COMMERCIAL DAMAGES OR LOSSES, EVEN IF SUCH PARTY SHALL HAVE BEEN
380       INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THIS LIMITATION OF
381       LIABILITY SHALL NOT APPLY TO LIABILITY FOR DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY
382       RESULTING FROM SUCH PARTY'S NEGLIGENCE TO THE EXTENT APPLICABLE LAW
383       PROHIBITS SUCH LIMITATION. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE
384       EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO
385       THIS EXCLUSION AND LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
386 
387  10. U.S. GOVERNMENT END USERS.
388 
389       The Covered Code is a "commercial item," as that term is defined in
390       48 C.F.R. 2.101 (Oct. 1995), consisting of "commercial computer
391       software" and "commercial computer software documentation," as such
392       terms are used in 48 C.F.R. 12.212 (Sept. 1995). Consistent with 48
393       C.F.R. 12.212 and 48 C.F.R. 227.7202-1 through 227.7202-4 (June 1995),
394       all U.S. Government End Users acquire Covered Code with only those
395       rights set forth herein.
396 
397  11. MISCELLANEOUS.
398 
399       This License represents the complete agreement concerning subject
400       matter hereof. If any provision of this License is held to be
401       unenforceable, such provision shall be reformed only to the extent
402       necessary to make it enforceable. This License shall be governed by
403       California law provisions (except to the extent applicable law, if
404       any, provides otherwise), excluding its conflict-of-law provisions.
405       With respect to disputes in which at least one party is a citizen of,
406       or an entity chartered or registered to do business in the United
407       States of America, any litigation relating to this License shall be
