SNNS License


  1. This License Agreement applies to the SNNS program and all accompanying programs and files that are distributed with a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of the SNNS License. ``SNNS'', below, refers to any such program or work, and a ``work based on SNNS'' means either SNNS or any work containing SNNS or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications. Each licensee is addressed as ``you''.

  2. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of SNNS'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 SNNS a copy of this license along with SNNS.

  3. You may modify your copy or copies of SNNS or any portion of it only for your own use. You may not distribute modified copies of SNNS. You may, however, distribute your modifications as separate files (e.g. patch files) along with the unmodified SNNS software. We also encourage users to send changes and improvements which would benefit many other users to us so that all users may receive these improvements in a later version. The restriction not to distribute modified copies is also useful to prevent bug reports from someone else's modifications.

  4. If you distribute copies of SNNS you may not charge anything except the cost for the media and a fair estimate of the costs of computer time or network time directly attributable to the copying.

  5. You may not copy, modify, sub-license, distribute or transfer SNNS except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sub-license, distribute or transfer SNNS is void, and will automatically terminate your rights to use SNNS under this License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights to use copies, from you under this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.

  6. By copying, distributing or modifying SNNS (or any work based on SNNS) you indicate your acceptance of this license to do so, and all its terms and conditions.

  7. Each time you redistribute SNNS (or any work based on SNNS), the recipient automatically receives a license from the original licensor to copy, distribute or modify SNNS subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.

  8. Incorporation of SNNS or parts of it in commercial programs requires a special agreement between the copyright holder and the Licensee in writing and usually involves the payment of license fees. If you want to incorporate SNNS or parts of it in commercial programs write to the author about further details.

  9. Because SNNS is licensed free of charge, there is no warranty for SNNS, to the extent permitted by applicable law. The copyright holders and/or other parties provide SNNS ``as is'' 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 SNNS is with you. Should the program prove defective, you assume the cost of all necessary servicing, repair or correction.

  10. In no event will any copyright holder, or any other party who may redistribute SNNS 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 SNNS (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 SNNS to operate with any other programs), even if such holder or other party has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
