Introduction

============

The FreeType Project is distributed in several archive packages;

some of them may contain, in addition to the FreeType font engine,

various tools and contributions which rely on, or relate to, the

FreeType Project.

This license applies to all files found in such packages, and

which do not fall under their own explicit license. The license

affects thus the FreeType font engine, the test programs,

documentation and makefiles, at the very least.

This license was inspired by the BSD, Artistic, and IJG

(Independent JPEG Group) licenses, which all encourage inclusion

and use of free software in commercial and freeware products

alike. As a consequence, its main points are that:

o We don't promise that this software works. However, we will be

interested in any kind of bug reports. (`as is' distribution)

o You can use this software for whatever you want, in parts or

full form, without having to pay us. (`royalty-free' usage)

o You may not pretend that you wrote this software. If you use

it, or only parts of it, in a program, you must acknowledge

somewhere in your documentation that you have used the

FreeType code. (`credits')

We specifically permit and encourage the inclusion of this

software, with or without modifications, in commercial products.

We disclaim all warranties covering The FreeType Project and

assume no liability related to The FreeType Project.

Finally, many people asked us for a preferred form for a

credit/disclaimer to use in compliance with this license. We thus

encourage you to use the following text:

"""

Portions of this software are copyright Š <year> The FreeType

Project (www.freetype.org). All rights reserved.

"""

Please replace <year> with the value from the FreeType version you

actually use.

Legal Terms

===========

0. Definitions

--------------

Throughout this license, the terms `package', `FreeType Project',

and `FreeType archive' refer to the set of files originally

distributed by the authors (David Turner, Robert Wilhelm, and

Werner Lemberg) as the `FreeType Project', be they named as alpha,

beta or final release.

`You' refers to the licensee, or person using the project, where

`using' is a generic term including compiling the project's source

code as well as linking it to form a `program' or `executable'.

This program is referred to as `a program using the FreeType

engine'.

This license applies to all files distributed in the original

FreeType Project, including all source code, binaries and

documentation, unless otherwise stated in the file in its

original, unmodified form as distributed in the original archive.

If you are unsure whether or not a particular file is covered by

this license, you must contact us to verify this.

The FreeType Project is copyright (C) 1996-2000 by David Turner,

Robert Wilhelm, and Werner Lemberg. All rights reserved except as

specified below.

1. No Warranty

--------------

THE FREETYPE PROJECT IS PROVIDED `AS IS' WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY

KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO,

WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR

PURPOSE. IN NO EVENT WILL ANY OF THE AUTHORS OR COPYRIGHT HOLDERS

BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES CAUSED BY THE USE OR THE INABILITY TO

USE, OF THE FREETYPE PROJECT.

2. Redistribution

-----------------

This license grants a worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual and

irrevocable right and license to use, execute, perform, compile,

display, copy, create derivative works of, distribute and

sublicense the FreeType Project (in both source and object code

forms) and derivative works thereof for any purpose; and to

authorize others to exercise some or all of the rights granted

herein, subject to the following conditions:

o Redistribution of source code must retain this license file

(`FTL.TXT') unaltered; any additions, deletions or changes to

the original files must be clearly indicated in accompanying

documentation. The copyright notices of the unaltered,

original files must be preserved in all copies of source

files.

o Redistribution in binary form must provide a disclaimer that

states that the software is based in part of the work of the

FreeType Team, in the distribution documentation. We also

encourage you to put an URL to the FreeType web page in your

documentation, though this isn't mandatory.

These conditions apply to any software derived from or based on

the FreeType Project, not just the unmodified files. If you use

our work, you must acknowledge us. However, no fee need be paid

to us.

3. Advertising

--------------

Neither the FreeType authors and contributors nor you shall use

the name of the other for commercial, advertising, or promotional

purposes without specific prior written permission.

We suggest, but do not require, that you use one or more of the

following phrases to refer to this software in your documentation

or advertising materials: `FreeType Project', `FreeType Engine',

`FreeType library', or `FreeType Distribution'.

As you have not signed this license, you are not required to

accept it. However, as the FreeType Project is copyrighted

material, only this license, or another one contracted with the

authors, grants you the right to use, distribute, and modify it.

Therefore, by using, distributing, or modifying the FreeType

Project, you indicate that you understand and accept all the terms

of this license.

4. Contacts
