License text

Lucent Public License Version 1.02

THE ACCOMPANYING PROGRAM IS PROVIDED UNDER THE TERMS OF THIS PUBLIC
LICENSE ("AGREEMENT"). ANY USE, REPRODUCTION OR DISTRIBUTION OF THE
PROGRAM CONSTITUTES RECIPIENT'S ACCEPTANCE OF THIS AGREEMENT.

1. DEFINITIONS

"Contribution" means:

 a. in the case of Lucent Technologies Inc. ("LUCENT"), the Original
    Program, and 

 b. in the case of each Contributor, 
   
    i. changes to the Program,

   ii. and additions to the Program; 

    where such changes and/or additions to the Program were added to
    the Program by such Contributor itself or anyone acting on such
    Contributor's behalf, and the Contributor explicitly consents, in
    accordance with Section 3C, to characterization of the changes
    and/or additions as Contributions.

"Contributor" means LUCENT and any other entity that has Contributed a
Contribution to the Program.

"Distributor" means a Recipient that distributes the Program,
modifications to the Program, or any part thereof.

"Licensed Patents" mean patent claims licensable by a Contributor
which are necessarily infringed by the use or sale of its Contribution
alone or when combined with the Program.

"Original Program" means the original version of the software
accompanying this Agreement as released by LUCENT, including source
code, object code and documentation, if any.

"Program" means the Original Program and Contributions or any part
thereof

"Recipient" means anyone who receives the Program under this
Agreement, including all Contributors.

2. GRANT OF RIGHTS

 a. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, each Contributor hereby
    grants Recipient a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free
    copyright license to reproduce, prepare derivative works of,
    publicly display, publicly perform, distribute and sublicense the
    Contribution of such Contributor, if any, and such derivative
    works, in source code and object code form.

 b. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, each Contributor hereby
    grants Recipient a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free patent
    license under Licensed Patents to make, use, sell, offer to sell,
    import and otherwise transfer the Contribution of such
    Contributor, if any, in source code and object code form. The
    patent license granted by a Contributor shall also apply to the
    combination of the Contribution of that Contributor and the
    Program if, at the time the Contribution is added by the
    Contributor, such addition of the Contribution causes such
    combination to be covered by the Licensed Patents. The patent
    license granted by a Contributor shall not apply to (i) any other
    combinations which include the Contribution, nor to (ii)
    Contributions of other Contributors. No hardware per se is
    licensed hereunder.

 c. Recipient understands that although each Contributor grants the
    licenses to its Contributions set forth herein, no assurances are
    provided by any Contributor that the Program does not infringe the
    patent or other intellectual property rights of any other
    entity. Each Contributor disclaims any liability to Recipient for
    claims brought by any other entity based on infringement of
    intellectual property rights or otherwise. As a condition to
    exercising the rights and licenses granted hereunder, each
    Recipient hereby assumes sole responsibility to secure any other
    intellectual property rights needed, if any. For example, if a
    third party patent license is required to allow Recipient to
    distribute the Program, it is Recipient's responsibility to
    acquire that license before distributing the Program.  Each
    Contributor represents that to its knowledge it has sufficient
    copyright rights in its Contribution, if any, to grant the
    copyright license set forth in this Agreement.

3. REQUIREMENTS

A. Distributor may choose to distribute the Program in any form under
   this Agreement or under its own license agreement, provided that:

 a. it complies with the terms and conditions of this Agreement;
 
 b. if the Program is distributed in source code or other tangible
    form, a copy of this Agreement or Distributor's own license
    agreement is included with each copy of the Program; and

 c. if distributed under Distributor's own license agreement, such
    license agreement:

     i. effectively disclaims on behalf of all Contributors all
        warranties and conditions, express and implied, including
        warranties or conditions of title and non-infringement, and
        implied warranties or conditions of merchantability and
        fitness for a particular purpose;

    ii. effectively excludes on behalf of all Contributors all
        liability for damages, including direct, indirect, special,
        incidental and consequential damages, such as lost profits;
        and

   iii. states that any provisions which differ from this Agreement
        are offered by that Contributor alone and not by any other
        party.

B. Each Distributor must include the following in a conspicuous
location in the Program:

    Copyright (C) 2003, Lucent Technologies Inc. and others. All
    Rights Reserved.

C. In addition, each Contributor must identify itself as the
originator of its Contribution in a manner that reasonably allows
subsequent Recipients to identify the originator of the
Contribution. Also, each Contributor must agree that the additions
and/or changes are intended to be a Contribution. Once a Contribution
is contributed, it may not thereafter be revoked.  

4. COMMERCIAL DISTRIBUTION

Commercial distributors of software may accept certain
responsibilities with respect to end users, business partners and the
like. While this license is intended to facilitate the commercial use
of the Program, the Distributor who includes the Program in a
commercial product offering should do so in a manner which does not
create potential liability for Contributors. Therefore, if a
Distributor includes the Program in a commercial product offering,
such Distributor ("Commercial Distributor") hereby agrees to defend
and indemnify every Contributor ("Indemnified Contributor") against
any losses, damages and costs (collectively "Losses") arising from
claims, lawsuits and other legal actions brought by a third party
against the Indemnified Contributor to the extent caused by the acts
or omissions of such Commercial Distributor in connection with its
distribution of the Program in a commercial product offering. The
obligations in this section do not apply to any claims or Losses
relating to any actual or alleged intellectual property
infringement. In order to qualify, an Indemnified Contributor must: a)
promptly notify the Commercial Distributor in writing of such claim,
and b) allow the Commercial Distributor to control, and cooperate with
the Commercial Distributor in, the defense and any related settlement
negotiations. The Indemnified Contributor may participate in any such
claim at its own expense.

For example, a Distributor might include the Program in a commercial
product offering, Product X. That Distributor is then a Commercial
Distributor. If that Commercial Distributor then makes performance
claims, or offers warranties related to Product X, those performance
claims and warranties are such Commercial Distributor's responsibility
alone. Under this section, the Commercial Distributor would have to
defend claims against the Contributors related to those performance
claims and warranties, and if a court requires any Contributor to pay
any damages as a result, the Commercial Distributor must pay those
damages.

5. NO WARRANTY

EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, THE PROGRAM IS
PROVIDED ON AN "AS IS" BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY
KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY
WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY
OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. Each Recipient is solely
responsible for determining the appropriateness of using and
distributing the Program and assumes all risks associated with its
exercise of rights under this Agreement, including but not limited to
the risks and costs of program errors, compliance with applicable
laws, damage to or loss of data, programs or equipment, and
unavailability or interruption of operations.

6. DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY

EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, NEITHER RECIPIENT NOR
ANY CONTRIBUTORS SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT,
INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING
WITHOUT LIMITATION LOST PROFITS), HOWEVER CAUSED AND ON ANY THEORY OF
LIABILITY, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR TORT (INCLUDING
NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE) ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THE USE OR
DISTRIBUTION OF THE PROGRAM OR THE EXERCISE OF ANY RIGHTS GRANTED
HEREUNDER, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

7. EXPORT CONTROL

Recipient agrees that Recipient alone is responsible for compliance
with the United States export administration regulations (and the
export control laws and regulation of any other countries).

8. GENERAL

If any provision of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable under
applicable law, it shall not affect the validity or enforceability of
the remainder of the terms of this Agreement, and without further
action by the parties hereto, such provision shall be reformed to the
minimum extent necessary to make such provision valid and enforceable.

If Recipient institutes patent litigation against a Contributor with
respect to a patent applicable to software (including a cross-claim or
counterclaim in a lawsuit), then any patent licenses granted by that
Contributor to such Recipient under this Agreement shall terminate as
of the date such litigation is filed. In addition, if Recipient
institutes patent litigation against any entity (including a
cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that the Program
itself (excluding combinations of the Program with other software or
hardware) infringes such Recipient's patent(s), then such Recipient's
rights granted under Section 2(b) shall terminate as of the date such
litigation is filed.

All Recipient's rights under this Agreement shall terminate if it
fails to comply with any of the material terms or conditions of this
Agreement and does not cure such failure in a reasonable period of
time after becoming aware of such noncompliance. If all Recipient's
rights under this Agreement terminate, Recipient agrees to cease use
and distribution of the Program as soon as reasonably
practicable. However, Recipient's obligations under this Agreement and
any licenses granted by Recipient relating to the Program shall
continue and survive.

LUCENT may publish new versions (including revisions) of this
Agreement from time to time. Each new version of the Agreement will be
given a distinguishing version number. The Program (including
Contributions) may always be distributed subject to the version of the
Agreement under which it was received. In addition, after a new
version of the Agreement is published, Contributor may elect to
distribute the Program (including its Contributions) under the new
version. No one other than LUCENT has the right to modify this
Agreement. Except as expressly stated in Sections 2(a) and 2(b) above,
Recipient receives no rights or licenses to the intellectual property
of any Contributor under this Agreement, whether expressly, by
implication, estoppel or otherwise. All rights in the Program not
expressly granted under this Agreement are reserved.

This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of New York and
the intellectual property laws of the United States of America. No
party to this Agreement will bring a legal action under this Agreement
more than one year after the cause of action arose. Each party waives
its rights to a jury trial in any resulting litigation.
