 2. FAIR DEALING RIGHTS

Nothing in this License is intended to reduce, limit, or restrict any

exceptions that are provided for in connection with the copyright
protection under copyright law or other applicable laws.

 3. LICENSE GRANT

Subject to the terms and conditions of this License, Licensor hereby
grants You a worldwide, royaltyfree, nonexclusive, perpetual (for the
duration of the applicable copyright) license to exercise the rights in
the Work as stated below:

    a. to Reproduce the Work, to incorporate the Work into one or more
Collections, and to Reproduce the Work as incorporated in the Collections;

    b. to create and Reproduce Adaptations provided that any such
Adaptation, including any translation in any medium, takes reasonable
steps to clearly label, demarcate or otherwise identify that changes
were made to the original Work. For example, a transla tion could be
marked The original work was translated from English to Spanish, or a
modification could indicate The original work has been modified.;

    c. to Distribute and Publicly Perform the Work including as
incorporated in Collections; and,

    d. to Distribute and Publicly Perform Adaptations. The above rights
may be exercised in all media and formats whether now known or hereafter
devised. The above rights include the right to make such modifications
as are technically necessary to exercise the rights in other media and
formats. Subject to Section 8(f), all rights not expressly granted by
Licensor are hereby reserved, including but not limited to the rights
set forth in Section 4(f).

 4. RESTRICTIONS

The license granted in Section 3 above is expressly made subject to and
limited by the following restrictions:

    a. You may Distribute or Publicly Perform the Work only under the
terms of this License. You must include a copy of, or the Uniform
Resource Identifier (URI) for, this License with every copy of the Work
You Distribute or Publicly Perform. You may not offer or impose any
terms on the Work that restrict the terms of this License or the ability
of the recipient of the Work to exercise the rights granted to that
recipient under the terms of the License. You may not sublicense the
Work. You must keep intact all notices that refer to this License and to
the disclaimer of warranties with every copy of the Work You Distribute
or Publicly Perform. When You Distribute or Publicly Perform the Work,
You may not impose any effective technological measures on the Work that
restrict the ability of a recipient of the Work from You to exercise the
rights granted to that recipient under the terms of the License. This
Section 4(a) applies to the Work as incorporated in a Collection, but
this does not require the Collection apart from the Work itself to be
made subject to the terms of this License. If You create a Collection,
upon notice from any Licensor You must, to the extent practicable,
remove from the Collection any credit as required by Section 4(d), as
requested. If You create an Adaptation, upon notice from any Licensor
You must, to the extent practicable, remove from the Adaptation any
credit as required by Section 4(d), as requested.

    b. Subject to the exception in Section 4(c), you may not exercise
any of the rights granted to You in Section 3 above in any manner that
is primarily intended for or directed to ward commercial advantage or
private monetary compensation. The exchange of the Work for other
copyrighted works by means of digital filesharing or otherwise shall not
be considered to be intended for or directed toward commercial advantage
or private monetary compensation, provided there is no payment of any
monetary compensation in connection with the exchange of copyrighted works.

c. *You may exercise the rights granted in Section 3 for commercial
purposes only if:*

    i. *You are a workerowned business or workerowned collective; and*
    ii. *all financial gain, surplus, profits and benefits produced by
the business or collective are distributed among the workerowners*

      d. Any use by a business that is privately owned and managed, and
that seeks to generate profit from the labor of employees paid by salary
or other wages, is not permitted under this license.

    e. If You Distribute, or Publicly Perform the Work or any
Adaptations or Collections, You must, unless a request has been made
pursuant to Section 4(a), keep intact all copy right notices for the
Work and provide, reasonable to the medium or means You are utilizing:
(i) the name of the Original Author (or pseudonym, if applicable) if
supplied, and/or if the Original Author and/or Licensor designate
another party or parties (e.g., a sponsor institute, publishing entity,
journal) for attribution (Attribution Parties) in Licensors copyright
notice, terms of service or by other reasonable means, the name of such
party or parties; (ii) the title of the Work if supplied; (iii) to the
extent reason ably practicable, the URI, if any, that Licensor specifies
to be associated with the Work, unless such URI does not refer to the
copyright notice or licensing information for the Work; and, (iv)
consistent with Section 3(b), in the case of an Adaptation, a credit
identifying the use of the Work in the Adaptation (e.g., French
translation of the Work by Original Author, or Screenplay based on
original Work by Original Author). The credit required by this Section
4(d) may be implemented in any reasonable manner; provided, however,
that in the case of a Adaptation or Collection, at a minimum such credit
will appear, if a credit for all contributing authors of the Adaptation
or Collection appears, then as part of these credits and in a manner at
least as prominent as the credits for the other contributing authors.
For the avoidance of doubt, You may only use the credit required by this
Section for the purpose of attribution in the manner set out above and,
by exercising Your rights under this License, You may not implicitly or
explicitly assert or imply any connection with, sponsorship or
endorsement by the Original Author, Licensor and/or Attribution Parties,
as appropriate, of You or Your use of the Work, without the separate,
express prior written permission of the Original Author, Licensor and/or
Attribution Parties.

    f. For the avoidance of doubt:

        i. Nonwaivable Compulsory License Schemes. In those
jurisdictions in which the right to collect royalties through any
statutory or compulsory licensing scheme can not be waived, the Licensor
reserves the exclusive right to collect such royalties for any exercise
by You of the rights granted under this License;

        ii. Waivable Compulsory License Schemes. In those jurisdictions
in which the right to collect royalties through any statutory or
compulsory licensing scheme can be waived, the Licensor reserves the
exclusive right to collect such royalties for any exercise by You of the
rights granted under this License if Your exercise of such rights is for
a purpose or use which is otherwise than noncommercial as permitted
under Section 4(b) and otherwise waives the right to collect royalties
through any statutory or compulsory licensing scheme; and,
        iii.Voluntary License Schemes. The Licensor reserves the right
to collect royalties, whether individually or, in the event that the
Licensor is a member of a collecting society that administers voluntary
licensing schemes, via that society, from any exercise by You of the
rights granted under this License that is for a purpose or use which is
otherwise than noncommercial as permitted under Section 4(b).

    g. Except as otherwise agreed in writing by the Licensor or as may
be otherwise permitted by applicable law, if You Reproduce, Distribute
or Publicly Perform the Work either by itself or as part of any
Adaptations or Collections, You must not distort, mutilate, modify or
take other derogatory action in relation to the Work which would be
prejudicial to the Original Authors honor or reputation. Licensor
agrees that in those jurisdictions (e.g. Japan), in which any exercise
of the right granted in Section 3(b) of this License (the right to make
Adaptations) would be deemed to be a distortion, mutilation,
modification or other derogatory action prejudicial to the Original
Authors honor and reputation, the Licensor will waive or not assert, as
appropriate, this Section, to the fullest extent permitted by the
applicable national law, to enable You to reasonably exercise Your right
under Section 3(b) of this License (right to make Adaptations) but not
otherwise.

 5. REPRESENTATIONS, WARRANTIES AND DISCLAIMER

UNLESS OTHERWISE MUTUALLY AGREED TO BY THE PARTIES IN WRITING, LICENSOR
OFFERS THE WORK ASIS AND MAKES NO REP RESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY
KIND CONCERNING THE WORK, EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY OR OTHERWISE,
INCLUD ING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES OF TITLE, MERCHANTI BILITY,
FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NONINFRINGEMENT, OR THE ABSENCE OF
LATENT OR OTHER DEFECTS, ACCURACY, OR THE PRESENCE OF ABSENCE OF ERRORS,
WHETHER OR NOT DIS COVERABLE. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE
EXCLUSION OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES, SO SUCH EXCLUSION MAY NOT AP PLY TO YOU.

 6. LIMITATION ON LIABILITY

EXCEPT TO THE EXTENT REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT WILL
LICENSOR BE LIABLE TO YOU ON ANY LEGAL THEORY FOR ANY SPECIAL,
INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF
THIS LICENSE OR THE USE OF THE WORK, EVEN IF LICENSOR HAS BEEN ADVISED
OF THE POS SIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
7. TERMINATION

    a. This License and the rights granted hereunder will terminate
automatically upon any breach by You of the terms of this License.
Individuals or entities who have received Adaptations or Collections
from You under this License, however, will not have their licenses
terminated provided such individuals or entities remain in full
compliance with those licenses. Sections 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, and 8 will
survive any termination of this License.

    b. Subject to the above terms and conditions, the license granted
here is perpetual (for the duration of the applicable copyright in the
Work). Notwithstanding the above, Li censor reserves the right to
release the Work under different license terms or to stop distributing
the Work at any time; provided, however that any such election will not
serve to withdraw this License (or any other license that has been, or
is required to be, granted under the terms of this License), and this
License will continue in full force and effect unless terminated as
stated above.

 8. MISCELLANEOUS

    a. Each time You Distribute or Publicly Perform the Work or a
Collection, the Licensor offers to the recipient a license to the Work
on the same terms and conditions as the license granted to You under
this License.

    b. Each time You Distribute or Publicly Perform an Adaptation,
Licensor offers to the recipient a license to the original Work on the
same terms and conditions as the license granted to You under this License.

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

    d. No term or provision of this License shall be deemed waived and
no breach consented to unless such waiver or consent shall be in writing
and signed by the party to be charged with such waiver or consent.

    e. This License constitutes the entire agreement between the parties
with respect to the Work licensed here. There are no understandings,
agreements or representations with respect to the Work not specified
here. Licensor shall not be bound by any additional provisions that may
appear in any communication from You. This License may not be modified
without the mutual written agreement of the Licensor and You.

    f. The rights granted under, and the subject matter referenced, in
this License were draft ed utilizing the terminology of the Berne
Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works (as amended
on September 28, 1979), the Rome Convention of 1961, the WIPO Copyright
Treaty of 1996, the WIPO Performances and Phonograms Treaty of 1996 and
the Universal Copyright Convention (as revised on July 24, 1971). These
rights and subject matter take effect in the relevant jurisdiction in
which the License terms are sought to be enforced according to the
corresponding provisions of the implemen tation of those treaty
provisions in the applicable national law. If the standard suite of
rights granted under applicable copyright law includes additional rights
not granted under this License, such additional rights are deemed to be
included in the License; this License is not intended to restrict the
license of any rights under applicable law.
