     17                    GNU AFFERO GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
     18                       Version 3, 19 November 2007
     20 Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc. <>
     21 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
     22 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
     24                            Preamble
     26  The GNU Affero General Public License is a free, copyleft license for
     27software and other kinds of works, specifically designed to ensure
     28cooperation with the community in the case of network server software.
     30  The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed
     31to take away your freedom to share and change the works.  By contrast,
     32our General Public Licenses are intended to guarantee your freedom to
     33share and change all versions of a program--to make sure it remains free
     34software for all its users.
     36  When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
     37price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
     38have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
     39them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you
     40want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new
     41free programs, and that you know you can do these things.
     43  Developers that use our General Public Licenses protect your rights
     44with two steps: (1) assert copyright on the software, and (2) offer
     45you this License which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute
     46and/or modify the software.
     48  A secondary benefit of defending all users' freedom is that
     49improvements made in alternate versions of the program, if they
     50receive widespread use, become available for other developers to
     51incorporate.  Many developers of free software are heartened and
     52encouraged by the resulting cooperation.  However, in the case of
     53software used on network servers, this result may fail to come about.
     54The GNU General Public License permits making a modified version and
     55letting the public access it on a server without ever releasing its
     56source code to the public.
     58  The GNU Affero General Public License is designed specifically to
     59ensure that, in such cases, the modified source code becomes available
     60to the community.  It requires the operator of a network server to
     61provide the source code of the modified version running there to the
     62users of that server.  Therefore, public use of a modified version, on
     63a publicly accessible server, gives the public access to the source
     64code of the modified version.
     66  An older license, called the Affero General Public License and
     67published by Affero, was designed to accomplish similar goals.  This is
     68a different license, not a version of the Affero GPL, but Affero has
     69released a new version of the Affero GPL which permits relicensing under
     70this license.
     72  The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
     73modification follow.
     75                       TERMS AND CONDITIONS
     77  0. Definitions.
     79  "This License" refers to version 3 of the GNU Affero General Public License.
     81  "Copyright" also means copyright-like laws that apply to other kinds of
     82works, such as semiconductor masks.
     84  "The Program" refers to any copyrightable work licensed under this
     85License.  Each licensee is addressed as "you".  "Licensees" and
     86"recipients" may be individuals or organizations.
     88  To "modify" a work means to copy from or adapt all or part of the work
     89in a fashion requiring copyright permission, other than the making of an
     90exact copy.  The resulting work is called a "modified version" of the
     91earlier work or a work "based on" the earlier work.
     93  A "covered work" means either the unmodified Program or a work based
     94on the Program.
     96  To "propagate" a work means to do anything with it that, without
     97permission, would make you directly or secondarily liable for
     98infringement under applicable copyright law, except executing it on a
     99computer or modifying a private copy.  Propagation includes copying,
     100distribution (with or without modification), making available to the
     101public, and in some countries other activities as well.
     103  To "convey" a work means any kind of propagation that enables other
     104parties to make or receive copies.  Mere interaction with a user through
     105a computer network, with no transfer of a copy, is not conveying.
     107  An interactive user interface displays "Appropriate Legal Notices"
     108to the extent that it includes a convenient and prominently visible
     109feature that (1) displays an appropriate copyright notice, and (2)
     110tells the user that there is no warranty for the work (except to the
     111extent that warranties are provided), that licensees may convey the
     112work under this License, and how to view a copy of this License.  If
     113the interface presents a list of user commands or options, such as a
     114menu, a prominent item in the list meets this criterion.
     116  1. Source Code.
     118  The "source code" for a work means the preferred form of the work
     119for making modifications to it.  "Object code" means any non-source
     120form of a work.
     122  A "Standard Interface" means an interface that either is an official
     123standard defined by a recognized standards body, or, in the case of
     124interfaces specified for a particular programming language, one that
     125is widely used among developers working in that language.
     127  The "System Libraries" of an executable work include anything, other
     128than the work as a whole, that (a) is included in the normal form of
     129packaging a Major Component, but which is not part of that Major
     130Component, and (b) serves only to enable use of the work with that
     131Major Component, or to implement a Standard Interface for which an
     132implementation is available to the public in source code form.  A
     133"Major Component", in this context, means a major essential component
     134(kernel, window system, and so on) of the specific operating system
     135(if any) on which the executable work runs, or a compiler used to
     136produce the work, or an object code interpreter used to run it.
     138  The "Corresponding Source" for a work in object code form means all
     139the source code needed to generate, install, and (for an executable
     140work) run the object code and to modify the work, including scripts to
     141control those activities.  However, it does not include the work's
     142System Libraries, or general-purpose tools or generally available free
     143programs which are used unmodified in performing those activities but
     144which are not part of the work.  For example, Corresponding Source
     145includes interface definition files associated with source files for
     146the work, and the source code for shared libraries and dynamically
     147linked subprograms that the work is specifically designed to require,
     148such as by intimate data communication or control flow between those
     149subprograms and other parts of the work.
     151  The Corresponding Source need not include anything that users
     152can regenerate automatically from other parts of the Corresponding
     155  The Corresponding Source for a work in source code form is that
     156same work.
     158  2. Basic Permissions.
     160  All rights granted under this License are granted for the term of
     161copyright on the Program, and are irrevocable provided the stated
     162conditions are met.  This License explicitly affirms your unlimited
     163permission to run the unmodified Program.  The output from running a
     164covered work is covered by this License only if the output, given its
     165content, constitutes a covered work.  This License acknowledges your
     166rights of fair use or other equivalent, as provided by copyright law.
     168  You may make, run and propagate covered works that you do not
     169convey, without conditions so long as your license otherwise remains
     170in force.  You may convey covered works to others for the sole purpose
     171of having them make modifications exclusively for you, or provide you
     172with facilities for running those works, provided that you comply with
     173the terms of this License in conveying all material for which you do
     174not control copyright.  Those thus making or running the covered works
     175for you must do so exclusively on your behalf, under your direction
     176and control, on terms that prohibit them from making any copies of
     177your copyrighted material outside their relationship with you.
     179  Conveying under any other circumstances is permitted solely under
     180the conditions stated below.  Sublicensing is not allowed; section 10
     181makes it unnecessary.
     183  3. Protecting Users' Legal Rights From Anti-Circumvention Law.
     185  No covered work shall be deemed part of an effective technological
     186measure under any applicable law fulfilling obligations under article
     18711 of the WIPO copyright treaty adopted on 20 December 1996, or
     188similar laws prohibiting or restricting circumvention of such
     191  When you convey a covered work, you waive any legal power to forbid
     192circumvention of technological measures to the extent such circumvention
     193is effected by exercising rights under this License with respect to
     194the covered work, and you disclaim any intention to limit operation or
     195modification of the work as a means of enforcing, against the work's
     196users, your or third parties' legal rights to forbid circumvention of
     197technological measures.
     199  4. Conveying Verbatim Copies.
     201  You may convey verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you
     202receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
     203appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice;
     204keep intact all notices stating that this License and any
     205non-permissive terms added in accord with section 7 apply to the code;
     206keep intact all notices of the absence of any warranty; and give all
     207recipients a copy of this License along with the Program.
     209  You may charge any price or no price for each copy that you convey,
     210and you may offer support or warranty protection for a fee.
     212  5. Conveying Modified Source Versions.
     214  You may convey a work based on the Program, or the modifications to
     215produce it from the Program, in the form of source code under the
     216terms of section 4, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
     218    a) The work must carry prominent notices stating that you modified
     219    it, and giving a relevant date.
     221    b) The work must carry prominent notices stating that it is
     222    released under this License and any conditions added under section
     223    7.  This requirement modifies the requirement in section 4 to
     224    "keep intact all notices".
     226    c) You must license the entire work, as a whole, under this
     227    License to anyone who comes into possession of a copy.  This
     228    License will therefore apply, along with any applicable section 7
     229    additional terms, to the whole of the work, and all its parts,
     230    regardless of how they are packaged.  This License gives no
     231    permission to license the work in any other way, but it does not
     232    invalidate such permission if you have separately received it.
     234    d) If the work has interactive user interfaces, each must display
     235    Appropriate Legal Notices; however, if the Program has interactive
     236    interfaces that do not display Appropriate Legal Notices, your
     237    work need not make them do so.
     239  A compilation of a covered work with other separate and independent
     240works, which are not by their nature extensions of the covered work,
     241and which are not combined with it such as to form a larger program,
     242in or on a volume of a storage or distribution medium, is called an
     243"aggregate" if the compilation and its resulting copyright are not
     244used to limit the access or legal rights of the compilation's users
     245beyond what the individual works permit.  Inclusion of a covered work
     246in an aggregate does not cause this License to apply to the other
     247parts of the aggregate.
     249  6. Conveying Non-Source Forms.
     251  You may convey a covered work in object code form under the terms
     252of sections 4 and 5, provided that you also convey the
     253machine-readable Corresponding Source under the terms of this License,
     254in one of these ways:
     256    a) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
     257    (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by the
     258    Corresponding Source fixed on a durable physical medium
     259    customarily used for software interchange.
     261    b) Convey the object code in, or embodied in, a physical product
     262    (including a physical distribution medium), accompanied by a
     263    written offer, valid for at least three years and valid for as
     264    long as you offer spare parts or customer support for that product
     265    model, to give anyone who possesses the object code either (1) a
     266    copy of the Corresponding Source for all the software in the
     267    product that is covered by this License, on a durable physical
     268    medium customarily used for software interchange, for a price no
     269    more than your reasonable cost of physically performing this
     270    conveying of source, or (2) access to copy the
     271    Corresponding Source from a network server at no charge.
     273    c) Convey individual copies of the object code with a copy of the
     274    written offer to provide the Corresponding Source.  This
     275    alternative is allowed only occasionally and noncommercially, and
     276    only if you received the object code with such an offer, in accord
     277    with subsection 6b.
     279    d) Convey the object code by offering access from a designated
     280    place (gratis or for a charge), and offer equivalent access to the
     281    Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no
     282    further charge.  You need not require recipients to copy the
     283    Corresponding Source along with the object code.  If the place to
     284    copy the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source
     285    may be on a different server (operated by you or a third party)
     286    that supports equivalent copying facilities, provided you maintain
     287    clear directions next to the object code saying where to find the
     288    Corresponding Source.  Regardless of what server hosts the
     289    Corresponding Source, you remain obligated to ensure that it is
     290    available for as long as needed to satisfy these requirements.
     292    e) Convey the object code using peer-to-peer transmission, provided
     293    you inform other peers where the object code and Corresponding
     294    Source of the work are being offered to the general public at no
     295    charge under subsection 6d.
     297  A separable portion of the object code, whose source code is excluded
     298from the Corresponding Source as a System Library, need not be
     299included in conveying the object code work.
     301  A "User Product" is either (1) a "consumer product", which means any
     302tangible personal property which is normally used for personal, family,
     303or household purposes, or (2) anything designed or sold for incorporation
     304into a dwelling.  In determining whether a product is a consumer product,
     305doubtful cases shall be resolved in favor of coverage.  For a particular
     306product received by a particular user, "normally used" refers to a
     307typical or common use of that class of product, regardless of the status
     308of the particular user or of the way in which the particular user
     309actually uses, or expects or is expected to use, the product.  A product
     310is a consumer product regardless of whether the product has substantial
     311commercial, industrial or non-consumer uses, unless such uses represent
     312the only significant mode of use of the product.
     314  "Installation Information" for a User Product means any methods,
     315procedures, authorization keys, or other information required to install
     316and execute modified versions of a covered work in that User Product from
     317a modified version of its Corresponding Source.  The information must
     318suffice to ensure that the continued functioning of the modified object
     319code is in no case prevented or interfered with solely because
     320modification has been made.
     322  If you convey an object code work under this section in, or with, or
     323specifically for use in, a User Product, and the conveying occurs as
     324part of a transaction in which the right of possession and use of the
     325User Product is transferred to the recipient in perpetuity or for a
     326fixed term (regardless of how the transaction is characterized), the
     327Corresponding Source conveyed under this section must be accompanied
     328by the Installation Information.  But this requirement does not apply
     329if neither you nor any third party retains the ability to install
     330modified object code on the User Product (for example, the work has
     331been installed in ROM).
     333  The requirement to provide Installation Information does not include a
     334requirement to continue to provide support service, warranty, or updates
     335for a work that has been modified or installed by the recipient, or for
     336the User Product in which it has been modified or installed.  Access to a
     337network may be denied when the modification itself materially and
     338adversely affects the operation of the network or violates the rules and
     339protocols for communication across the network.
     341  Corresponding Source conveyed, and Installation Information provided,
     342in accord with this section must be in a format that is publicly
     343documented (and with an implementation available to the public in
     344source code form), and must require no special password or key for
     345unpacking, reading or copying.
     347  7. Additional Terms.
     349  "Additional permissions" are terms that supplement the terms of this
     350License by making exceptions from one or more of its conditions.
     351Additional permissions that are applicable to the entire Program shall
     352be treated as though they were included in this License, to the extent
     353that they are valid under applicable law.  If additional permissions
     354apply only to part of the Program, that part may be used separately
     355under those permissions, but the entire Program remains governed by
     356this License without regard to the additional permissions.
     358  When you convey a copy of a covered work, you may at your option
     359remove any additional permissions from that copy, or from any part of
     360it.  (Additional permissions may be written to require their own
     361removal in certain cases when you modify the work.)  You may place
     362additional permissions on material, added by you to a covered work,
     363for which you have or can give appropriate copyright permission.
     365  Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, for material you
     366add to a covered work, you may (if authorized by the copyright holders of
     367that material) supplement the terms of this License with terms:
     369    a) Disclaiming warranty or limiting liability differently from the
     370    terms of sections 15 and 16 of this License; or
     372    b) Requiring preservation of specified reasonable legal notices or
     373    author attributions in that material or in the Appropriate Legal
     374    Notices displayed by works containing it; or
     376    c) Prohibiting misrepresentation of the origin of that material, or
     377    requiring that modified versions of such material be marked in
     378    reasonable ways as different from the original version; or
     380    d) Limiting the use for publicity purposes of names of licensors or
     381    authors of the material; or
     383    e) Declining to grant rights under trademark law for use of some
     384    trade names, trademarks, or service marks; or
     386    f) Requiring indemnification of licensors and authors of that
     387    material by anyone who conveys the material (or modified versions of
     388    it) with contractual assumptions of liability to the recipient, for
     389    any liability that these contractual assumptions directly impose on
     390    those licensors and authors.
     392  All other non-permissive additional terms are considered "further
     393restrictions" within the meaning of section 10.  If the Program as you
     394received it, or any part of it, contains a notice stating that it is
     395governed by this License along with a term that is a further
     396restriction, you may remove that term.  If a license document contains
     397a further restriction but permits relicensing or conveying under this
     398License, you may add to a covered work material governed by the terms
     399of that license document, provided that the further restriction does
     400not survive such relicensing or conveying.
     402  If you add terms to a covered work in accord with this section, you
     403must place, in the relevant source files, a statement of the
     404additional terms that apply to those files, or a notice indicating
     405where to find the applicable terms.
     407  Additional terms, permissive or non-permissive, may be stated in the
     408form of a separately written license, or stated as exceptions;
     409the above requirements apply either way.
     411  8. Termination.
     413  You may not propagate or modify a covered work except as expressly
     414provided under this License.  Any attempt otherwise to propagate or
     415modify it is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under
     416this License (including any patent licenses granted under the third
     417paragraph of section 11).
     419  However, if you cease all violation of this License, then your
     420license from a particular copyright holder is reinstated (a)
     421provisionally, unless and until the copyright holder explicitly and
     422finally terminates your license, and (b) permanently, if the copyright
     423holder fails to notify you of the violation by some reasonable means
     424prior to 60 days after the cessation.
     426  Moreover, your license from a particular copyright holder is
     427reinstated permanently if the copyright holder notifies you of the
     428violation by some reasonable means, this is the first time you have
     429received notice of violation of this License (for any work) from that
     430copyright holder, and you cure the violation prior to 30 days after
     431your receipt of the notice.
     433  Termination of your rights under this section does not terminate the
     434licenses of parties who have received copies or rights from you under
     435this License.  If your rights have been terminated and not permanently
     436reinstated, you do not qualify to receive new licenses for the same
     437material under section 10.
     439  9. Acceptance Not Required for Having Copies.
     441  You are not required to accept this License in order to receive or
     442run a copy of the Program.  Ancillary propagation of a covered work
     443occurring solely as a consequence of using peer-to-peer transmission
     444to receive a copy likewise does not require acceptance.  However,
     445nothing other than this License grants you permission to propagate or
     446modify any covered work.  These actions infringe copyright if you do
     447not accept this License.  Therefore, by modifying or propagating a
     448covered work, you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so.
     450  10. Automatic Licensing of Downstream Recipients.
     452  Each time you convey a covered work, the recipient automatically
     453receives a license from the original licensors, to run, modify and
     454propagate that work, subject to this License.  You are not responsible
     455for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License.
     457  An "entity transaction" is a transaction transferring control of an
     458organization, or substantially all assets of one, or subdividing an
     459organization, or merging organizations.  If propagation of a covered
     460work results from an entity transaction, each party to that
     461transaction who receives a copy of the work also receives whatever
     462licenses to the work the party's predecessor in interest had or could
     463give under the previous paragraph, plus a right to possession of the
     464Corresponding Source of the work from the predecessor in interest, if
     465the predecessor has it or can get it with reasonable efforts.
     467  You may not impose any further restrictions on the exercise of the
     468rights granted or affirmed under this License.  For example, you may
     469not impose a license fee, royalty, or other charge for exercise of
     470rights granted under this License, and you may not initiate litigation
     471(including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that
     472any patent claim is infringed by making, using, selling, offering for
     473sale, or importing the Program or any portion of it.
     475  11. Patents.
     477  A "contributor" is a copyright holder who authorizes use under this
     478License of the Program or a work on which the Program is based.  The
     479work thus licensed is called the contributor's "contributor version".
     481  A contributor's "essential patent claims" are all patent claims
     482owned or controlled by the contributor, whether already acquired or
     483hereafter acquired, that would be infringed by some manner, permitted
     484by this License, of making, using, or selling its contributor version,
     485but do not include claims that would be infringed only as a
     486consequence of further modification of the contributor version.  For
     487purposes of this definition, "control" includes the right to grant
     488patent sublicenses in a manner consistent with the requirements of
     489this License.
     491  Each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free
     492patent license under the contributor's essential patent claims, to
     493make, use, sell, offer for sale, import and otherwise run, modify and
     494propagate the contents of its contributor version.
     496  In the following three paragraphs, a "patent license" is any express
     497agreement or commitment, however denominated, not to enforce a patent
     498(such as an express permission to practice a patent or covenant not to
     499sue for patent infringement).  To "grant" such a patent license to a
     500party means to make such an agreement or commitment not to enforce a
     501patent against the party.
     503  If you convey a covered work, knowingly relying on a patent license,
     504and the Corresponding Source of the work is not available for anyone
     505to copy, free of charge and under the terms of this License, through a
     506publicly available network server or other readily accessible means,
     507then you must either (1) cause the Corresponding Source to be so
     508available, or (2) arrange to deprive yourself of the benefit of the
     509patent license for this particular work, or (3) arrange, in a manner
     510consistent with the requirements of this License, to extend the patent
     511license to downstream recipients.  "Knowingly relying" means you have
     512actual knowledge that, but for the patent license, your conveying the
     513covered work in a country, or your recipient's use of the covered work
     514in a country, would infringe one or more identifiable patents in that
     515country that you have reason to believe are valid.
     517  If, pursuant to or in connection with a single transaction or
     518arrangement, you convey, or propagate by procuring conveyance of, a
     519covered work, and grant a patent license to some of the parties
     520receiving the covered work authorizing them to use, propagate, modify
     521or convey a specific copy of the covered work, then the patent license
     522you grant is automatically extended to all recipients of the covered
     523work and works based on it.
     525  A patent license is "discriminatory" if it does not include within
     526the scope of its coverage, prohibits the exercise of, or is
     527conditioned on the non-exercise of one or more of the rights that are
     528specifically granted under this License.  You may not convey a covered
     529work if you are a party to an arrangement with a third party that is
     530in the business of distributing software, under which you make payment
     531to the third party based on the extent of your activity of conveying
     532the work, and under which the third party grants, to any of the
     533parties who would receive the covered work from you, a discriminatory
     534patent license (a) in connection with copies of the covered work
     535conveyed by you (or copies made from those copies), or (b) primarily
     536for and in connection with specific products or compilations that
     537contain the covered work, unless you entered into that arrangement,
     538or that patent license was granted, prior to 28 March 2007.
     540  Nothing in this License shall be construed as excluding or limiting
     541any implied license or other defenses to infringement that may
     542otherwise be available to you under applicable patent law.
     544  12. No Surrender of Others' Freedom.
     546  If conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
     547otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
     548excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot convey a
     549covered work so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
     550License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may
     551not convey it at all.  For example, if you agree to terms that obligate you
     552to collect a royalty for further conveying from those to whom you convey
     553the Program, the only way you could satisfy both those terms and this
     554License would be to refrain entirely from conveying the Program.
     556  13. Remote Network Interaction; Use with the GNU General Public License.
     558  Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, if you modify the
     559Program, your modified version must prominently offer all users
     560interacting with it remotely through a computer network (if your version
     561supports such interaction) an opportunity to receive the Corresponding
     562Source of your version by providing access to the Corresponding Source
     563from a network server at no charge, through some standard or customary
     564means of facilitating copying of software.  This Corresponding Source
     565shall include the Corresponding Source for any work covered by version 3
     566of the GNU General Public License that is incorporated pursuant to the
     567following paragraph.
     569  Notwithstanding any other provision of this License, you have
     570permission to link or combine any covered work with a work licensed
     571under version 3 of the GNU General Public License into a single
     572combined work, and to convey the resulting work.  The terms of this
     573License will continue to apply to the part which is the covered work,
     574but the work with which it is combined will remain governed by version
     5753 of the GNU General Public License.
     577  14. Revised Versions of this License.
     579  The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of
     580the GNU Affero General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions
     581will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
     582address new problems or concerns.
     584  Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the
     585Program specifies that a certain numbered version of the GNU Affero General
     586Public License "or any later version" applies to it, you have the
     587option of following the terms and conditions either of that numbered
     588version or of any later version published by the Free Software
     589Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of the
     590GNU Affero General Public License, you may choose any version ever published
     591by the Free Software Foundation.
     593  If the Program specifies that a proxy can decide which future
     594versions of the GNU Affero General Public License can be used, that proxy's
     595public statement of acceptance of a version permanently authorizes you
     596to choose that version for the Program.
     598  Later license versions may give you additional or different
     599permissions.  However, no additional obligations are imposed on any
     600author or copyright holder as a result of your choosing to follow a
     601later version.
     603  15. Disclaimer of Warranty.
     614  16. Limitation of Liability.
     626  17. Interpretation of Sections 15 and 16.
     628  If the disclaimer of warranty and limitation of liability provided
     629above cannot be given local legal effect according to their terms,
     630reviewing courts shall apply local law that most closely approximates
     631an absolute waiver of all civil liability in connection with the
     632Program, unless a warranty or assumption of liability accompanies a
     633copy of the Program in return for a fee.
     635                     END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
     637            How to Apply These Terms to Your New Programs
     639  If you develop a new program, and you want it to be of the greatest
     640possible use to the public, the best way to achieve this is to make it
     641free software which everyone can redistribute and change under these terms.
     643  To do so, attach the following notices to the program.  It is safest
     644to attach them to the start of each source file to most effectively
     645state the exclusion of warranty; and each file should have at least
     646the "copyright" line and a pointer to where the full notice is found.
     648    <one line to give the program's name and a brief idea of what it does.>
     649    Copyright (C) <year>  <name of author>
     651    This program is free software: you can redistribute it and/or modify
     652    it under the terms of the GNU Affero General Public License as published by
     653    the Free Software Foundation, either version 3 of the License, or
     654    (at your option) any later version.
     656    This program is distributed in the hope that it will be useful,
     657    but WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY; without even the implied warranty of
     659    GNU Affero General Public License for more details.
     661    You should have received a copy of the GNU Affero General Public License
     662    along with this program.  If not, see <>.
     664Also add information on how to contact you by electronic and paper mail.
     666  If your software can interact with users remotely through a computer
     667network, you should also make sure that it provides a way for users to
     668get its source.  For example, if your program is a web application, its
     669interface could display a "Source" link that leads users to an archive
     670of the code.  There are many ways you could offer source, and different
     671solutions will be better for different programs; see section 13 for the
     672specific requirements.
     674  You should also get your employer (if you work as a programmer) or school,
     675if any, to sign a "copyright disclaimer" for the program, if necessary.
