License text

Version 1.1 - 26 February 2007
 PREAMBLE
 
 The goals of the Open Font License (OFL) are to stimulate worldwide
 development of collaborative font projects, to support the font creation
 efforts of academic and linguistic communities, and to provide a free and
 open framework in which fonts may be shared and improved in partnership
 with others.
 
 The OFL allows the licensed fonts to be used, studied, modified and
 redistributed freely as long as they are not sold by themselves. The
 fonts, including any derivative works, can be bundled, embedded,
 redistributed and/or sold with any software provided that any reserved
 names are not used by derivative works. The fonts and derivatives,
 however, cannot be released under any other type of license. The
 requirement for fonts to remain under this license does not apply
 to any document created using the fonts or their derivatives.
 DEFINITIONS
 
 "Font Software" refers to the set of files released by the Copyright
 Holder(s) under this license and clearly marked as such. This may
 include source files, build scripts and documentation.
 
 "Reserved Font Name" refers to any names specified as such after the
 copyright statement(s).
 
 "Original Version" refers to the collection of Font Software components as
 distributed by the Copyright Holder(s).
 
 "Modified Version" refers to any derivative made by adding to, deleting,

 writer or other person who contributed to the Font Software.
