Name Aladdin Free Public License
URL
Comment Despite its name, this is not a free software license because it does

not allow charging for distribution, and largely prohibits simply packaging software licensed under it with anything for which a charge is made.

We have provided links to these licenses when we can do so without violating our general policy: that we do not make links to sites that promote, encourage or facilitate the use of nonfree software packages.

Aladdin Free Public License
(Version 9, September 18, 2000)

Copyright (C) 1994, 1995, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000 Aladdin Enterprises,
Menlo Park, California, U.S.A. All rights reserved.

    NOTE: This License is not the same as any of the GNU Licenses
    published by the Free Software Foundation. Its terms are
    substantially different from those of the GNU Licenses. If you are
    familiar with the GNU Licenses, please read this license with
    extra care.

Aladdin Enterprises hereby grants to anyone the permission to apply
this License to their own work, as long as the entire License
(including the above notices and this paragraph) is copied with no
changes, additions, or deletions except for changing the first
paragraph of Section 0 to include a suitable description of the work
to which the license is being applied and of the person or entity that
holds the copyright in the work, and, if the License is being applied
to a work created in a country other than the United States, replacing
the first paragraph of Section 6 with an appropriate reference to the
laws of the appropriate country.

This License is not an Open Source license: among other things, it
places restrictions on distribution of the Program, specifically
including sale of the Program. While Aladdin Enterprises respects and
supports the philosophy of the Open Source Definition, and shares the
desire of the GNU project to keep licensed software freely
redistributable in both source and object form, we feel that Open
Source licenses unfairly prevent developers of useful software from
being compensated proportionately when others profit financially from
their work. This License attempts to ensure that those who receive,
redistribute, and contribute to the licensed Program according to the
Open Source and Free Software philosophies have the right to do so,
while retaining for the developer(s) of the Program the power to make
those who use the Program to enhance the value of commercial products
pay for the privilege of doing so.  0. Subject Matter This License
applies to the computer programs known as "AFPL Ghostscript", "AFPL
Ghostscript PCL5e", "AFPL Ghostscript PCL5c", and "AFPL Ghostscript
PXL".  The "Program", below, refers to such program. The Program is a
copyrighted work whose copyright is held by Artifex Software Inc.,
located in San Rafael California and artofcode LLC, located in
Benicia, California (the "Licensor"). Please note that AFPL
Ghostscript is neither the program known as "GNU Ghostscript" nor the
version of Ghostscript available for commercial licensing from Artifex
Software Inc.

A "work based on the Program" means either the Program or any
derivative work of the Program, as defined in the United States
Copyright Act of 1976, such as a translation or a modification.

BY MODIFYING OR DISTRIBUTING THE PROGRAM (OR ANY WORK BASED ON THE
PROGRAM), YOU INDICATE YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THIS LICENSE TO DO SO, AND
ALL ITS TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTING OR MODIFYING
THE PROGRAM OR WORKS BASED ON IT. NOTHING OTHER THAN THIS LICENSE
GRANTS YOU PERMISSION TO MODIFY OR DISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM OR ITS
DERIVATIVE WORKS. THESE ACTIONS ARE PROHIBITED BY LAW. IF YOU DO NOT
ACCEPT THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, DO NOT MODIFY OR DISTRIBUTE THE
PROGRAM.

1. Licenses.

Licensor hereby grants you the following rights, provided that you
comply with all of the restrictions set forth in this License and
provided, further, that you distribute an unmodified copy of this
License with the Program:

(a) You may copy and distribute literal (i.e., verbatim) copies of the
    Program's source code as you receive it throughout the world, in
    any medium.

(b) You may modify the Program, create works based on the Program and
    distribute copies of such throughout the world, in any medium.

2. Restrictions.

This license is subject to the following restrictions:

(a) Distribution of the Program or any work based on the Program by a
    commercial organization to any third party is prohibited if any
    payment is made in connection with such distribution, whether
    directly (as in payment for a copy of the Program) or indirectly
    (as in payment for some service related to the Program, or payment
    for some product or service that includes a copy of the Program
    "without charge"; these are only examples, and not an exhaustive
    enumeration of prohibited activities). The following methods of
    distribution involving payment shall not in and of themselves be a
    violation of this restriction:

    (i) Posting the Program on a public access information storage and
        retrieval service for which a fee is received for retrieving
        information (such as an on-line service), provided that the
        fee is not content-dependent (i.e., the fee would be the same
        for retrieving the same volume of information consisting of
        random data) and that access to the service and to the Program
        is available independent of any other product or service. An
        example of a service that does not fall under this section is
        an on-line service that is operated by a company and that is
        only available to customers of that company. (This is not an
        exhaustive enumeration.)

   (ii) Distributing the Program on removable computer-readable media,
        provided that the files containing the Program are reproduced
        entirely and verbatim on such media, that all information on
        such media be redistributable for non-commercial purposes
        without charge, and that such media are distributed by
        themselves (except for accompanying documentation) independent
        of any other product or service. Examples of such media
        include CD-ROM, magnetic tape, and optical storage
        media. (This is not intended to be an exhaustive list.) An
        example of a distribution that does not fall under this
        section is a CD-ROM included in a book or magazine. (This is
        not an exhaustive enumeration.)

(b) Activities other than copying, distribution and modification of
    the Program are not subject to this License and they are outside
    its scope. Functional use (running) of the Program is not
    restricted, and any output produced through the use of the Program
    is subject to this license only if its contents constitute a work
    based on the Program (independent of having been made by running
    the Program).

(c) You must meet all of the following conditions with respect to any
    work that you distribute or publish that in whole or in part
    contains or is derived from the Program or any part thereof ("the
    Work"):

    (i) If you have modified the Program, you must cause the Work to
        carry prominent notices stating that you have modified the
        Program's files and the date of any change. In each source
        file that you have modified, you must include a prominent
        notice that you have modified the file, including your name,
        your e-mail address (if any), and the date and purpose of the
        change;

   (ii) You must cause the Work to be licensed as a whole and at no
        charge to all third parties under the terms of this License;

  (iii) If the Work normally reads commands interactively when run,
        you must cause it, at each time the Work commences operation,
        to print or display an announcement including an appropriate
        copyright notice and a notice that there is no warranty (or
        else, saying that you provide a warranty). Such notice must
        also state that users may redistribute the Work only under the
        conditions of this License and tell the user how to view the
        copy of this License included with the Work. (Exceptions: if
        the Program is interactive but normally prints or displays
        such an announcement only at the request of a user, such as in
        an "About box", the Work is required to print or display the
        notice only under the same circumstances; if the Program
        itself is interactive but does not normally print such an
        announcement, the Work is not required to print an
        announcement.);

   (iv) You must accompany the Work with the complete corresponding
        machine-readable source code, delivered on a medium
        customarily used for software interchange. The source code for
        a work means the preferred form of the work for making
        modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source
        code means all the source code for all modules it contains,
        plus any associated interface definition files, plus the
        scripts used to control compilation and installation of the
        executable code. If you distribute with the Work any component
        that is normally distributed (in either source or binary form)
        with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
        operating system on which the executable runs, you must also
        distribute the source code of that component if you have it
        and are allowed to do so;

    (v) If you distribute any written or printed material at all with
        the Work, such material must include either a written copy of
        this License, or a prominent written indication that the Work
        is covered by this License and written instructions for
        printing and/or displaying the copy of the License on the
        distribution medium;

   (vi) You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipient's
        exercise of the rights granted herein.

If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering the
equivalent ability to copy from a designated place, then offering
equivalent ability to copy the source code from the same place counts
as distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
compelled to copy the source code along with the object code.

3. Reservation of Rights.

No rights are granted to the Program except as expressly set forth
herein. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the
Program except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt
otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this
License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from
you under this License will not have their licenses terminated so long
as such parties remain in full compliance.

4. Other Restrictions.

If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain
countries for any reason, Licensor may add an explicit geographical
distribution limitation excluding those countries, so that
distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus
excluded. In such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if
written in the body of this License.

5. Limitations.

THE PROGRAM IS PROVIDED TO YOU "AS IS," WITHOUT WARRANTY. THERE IS NO
WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT
NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS
FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NONINFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY
RIGHTS. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE
PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME
THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.

IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
WILL LICENSOR, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE
THE PROGRAM 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 THE PROGRAM (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 THE PROGRAM
TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER
PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.

6. General.

This License is governed by the laws of the State of California,
U.S.A., excluding choice of law rules.

If any part of this License is found to be in conflict with the law,
that part shall be interpreted in its broadest meaning consistent with
the law, and no other parts of the License shall be affected.

For United States Government users, the Program is provided with
RESTRICTED RIGHTS. If you are a unit or agency of the United States
Government or are acquiring the Program for any such unit or agency,
the following apply:

    If the unit or agency is the Department of Defense ("DOD"), the
    Program and its documentation are classified as "commercial
    computer software" and "commercial computer software
    documentation" respectively and, pursuant to DFAR Section
    227.7202, the Government is acquiring the Program and its
    documentation in accordance with the terms of this License. If the
    unit or agency is other than DOD, the Program and its
    documentation are classified as "commercial computer software" and
    "commercial computer software documentation" respectively and,
    pursuant to FAR Section 12.212, the Government is acquiring the
    Program and its documentation in accordance with the terms of this
    License.
