Version 3, 29 June 2007
Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc. <>
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
The GNU General Public License is a free, copyleft license for software and other kinds of works.
The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed to take away your freedom to share and change the
works. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change all versions
of a program--to make sure it remains free software for all its users. We, the Free Software Foundation, use the GNU General
Public License for most of our software; it applies also to any other work released this way by its authors. You can apply it to your
programs, too.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure
that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for them if you wish), that you receive source code or
can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs, and that you know you can do
these things.
To protect your rights, we need to prevent others from denying you these rights or asking you to surrender the rights. Therefore,
you have certain responsibilities if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it: responsibilities to respect the freedom of
For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must pass on to the recipients the same
freedoms that you received. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them
these terms so they know their rights.
Developers that use the GNU GPL protect your rights with two steps: (1) assert copyright on the software, and (2) offer you this
License giving you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify it.
For the developers' and authors' protection, the GPL clearly explains that there is no warranty for this free software. For both users'
and authors' sake, the GPL requires that modi¿ed versions be marked as changed, so that their problems will not be attributed
erroneously to authors of previous versions.
Some devices are designed to deny users access to install or run modi¿ed versions of the software inside them, although the
manufacturer can do so. This is fundamentally incompatible with the aim of protecting users' freedom to change the software.
The systematic pattern of such abuse occurs in the area of products for individuals to use, which is precisely where it is most
unacceptable. Therefore, we have designed this version of the GPL to prohibit the practice for those products. If such problems
arise substantially in other domains, we stand ready to extend this provision to those domains in future versions of the GPL, as
needed to protect the freedom of users.
Finally, every program is threatened constantly by software patents. States should not allow patents to restrict development and
use of software on general-purpose computers, but in those that do, we wish to avoid the special danger that patents applied to
a free program could make it effectively proprietary. To prevent this, the GPL assures that patents cannot be used to render the
program non-free.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modi¿cation follow.

"This License" refers to version 3 of the GNU General Public License.
"Copyright" also means copyright-like laws that apply to other kinds of works, such as semiconductor masks.
"The Program" refers to any copyrightable work licensed under this License. Each licensee is addressed as "you". "Licensees"
and "recipients" may be individuals or organizations.
To "modify" a work means to copy from or adapt all or part of the work in a fashion requiring copyright permission, other than
the making of an exact copy. The resulting work is called a "modi¿ed version" of the earlier work or a work "based on" the
earlier work.
A "covered work" means either the unmodi¿ed Program or a work based on the Program.
To "propagate" a work means to do anything with it that, without permission, would make you directly or secondarily liable
for infringement under applicable copyright law, except executing it on a computer or modifying a private copy. Propagation
includes copying, distribution (with or without modi¿cation), making available to the public, and in some countries other
activities as well.
