- 2.1. The Initial Developer Grant.

under intellectual property rights (other than patent or trademark) Licensable
by Initial Developer to use, reproduce, modify, display, perform, sublicense
and distribute the Original Code (or portions thereof) with or without

other software, the Contributor Version (or portions thereof).
3 DISTRIBUTION OBLIGATIONS.
- 3.1. Application of License.
The Modifications which You create or to which You contribute are governed by
the terms of this License, including without limitation Section 2.2. The
Source Code version of Covered Code may be distributed only under the terms of
this License or a future version of this License released under Section 6.1, and You must include a copy of this License with every copy of the Source
Code You distribute. You may not offer or impose any terms on any Source Code
version that alters or restricts the applicable version of this License or the
recipients' rights hereunder. However, You may include an additional document
offering the additional rights described in Section 3.5.
- 3.2. Availability of Source Code.
Any Modification created by You shall be provided to the Initial Developer in
Source Code form and are subject to the terms of the License.
- 3.3. Description of Modifications.
You must cause all Covered Code to which You contribute to contain a file
documenting the changes You made to create that Covered Code and the date of
any change. You must include a prominent statement that the Modification is
derived, directly or indirectly, from Original Code provided by the Initial
Developer and including the name of the Initial Developer in (a) the Source
Code, and (b) in any notice in an Executable version or related documentation
in which You describe the origin or ownership of the Covered Code.
- 3.4. Intellectual Property Matters.
- (a) Third Party Claims.
If Contributor has knowledge that a license under a third party's intellectual
property rights is required to exercise the rights granted by such Contributor
under Sections 2.1 or 2.2, Contributor must include a text file with the Source
Code distribution titled "LEGAL" which describes the claim and the party
making the claim in sufficient detail that a recipient will know whom to
contact. If Contributor obtains such knowledge after the Modification is made
available as described in Section 3.2, Contributor shall promptly modify the
LEGAL file in all copies Contributor makes available thereafter and shall take
other steps (such as notifying appropriate mailing lists or newsgroups)
reasonably calculated to inform those who received the Covered Code that new
knowledge has been obtained.
- (b) Contributor APIs.
If Contributor's Modifications include an application programming interface and
Contributor has knowledge of patent licenses which are reasonably necessary to
implement that API, Contributor must also include this information in the LEGAL
- (c) Representations.
Contributor represents that, except as disclosed pursuant to Section
3.4(a) above, Contributor believes that Contributor's Modifications are
Contributor's original creation(s) and/or Contributor has sufficient rights to
grant the rights conveyed by this License.
- 3.5. Required Notices.
You must duplicate the notice in Exhibit A in each file of the Source
Code. If it is not possible to put such notice in a particular Source Code file
due to its structure, then You must include such notice in a location (such as
a relevant directory) where a user would be likely to look for such a notice.
If You created one or more Modification(s) You may add your name as a
Contributor to the notice described in Exhibit A. You must also duplicate
this License in any documentation for the Source Code where You describe
recipients' rights or ownership rights relating to Covered Code. You may choose
to offer, and to charge a fee for, warranty, support, indemnity or liability
obligations to one or more recipients of Covered Code. However, You may do so
only on Your own behalf, and not on behalf of the Initial Developer or any
- 3.6. Distribution of Executable Versions.
You may distribute Covered Code in Executable form only if the requirements
of Section 3.1-3.5 have been met for that Covered Code. You may distribute the
Executable version of Covered Code or ownership rights under a license of Your
choice, which may contain terms different from this License, provided that You
are in compliance with the terms of this License and that the license for the
Executable version does not attempt to limit or alter the recipient's rights in
the Source Code version from the rights set forth in this License. If You
distribute the Executable version under a different license You must make it
absolutely clear that any terms which differ from this License are offered by
You alone, not by the Initial Developer or any Contributor. If you
distribute executable versions containing Covered Code as part of a product,
you must reproduce the notice in Exhibit B in the documentation and/or
other materials provided with the product.
- 3.7. Larger Works.
You may create a Larger Work by combining Covered Code with other code not
governed by the terms of this License and distribute the Larger Work as a
single product. In such a case, You must make sure the requirements of this
License are fulfilled for the Covered Code.
- 3.8. Restrictions.
You may not remove any product identification, copyright, proprietary notices or labels from gSOAP.
4 INABILITY TO COMPLY DUE TO STATUTE OR REGULATION.
If it is impossible for You to comply with any of the terms of this License
with respect to some or all of the Covered Code due to statute, judicial order,
or regulation then You must: (a) comply with the terms of this License to the
maximum extent possible; and (b) describe the limitations and the code they
affect. Such description must be included in the LEGAL file described in
Section 3.4 and must be included with all distributions of the Source
Code. Except to the extent prohibited by statute or regulation, such
description must be sufficiently detailed for a recipient of ordinary skill to
be able to understand it.
5 APPLICATION OF THIS LICENSE.
This License applies to code to which the Initial Developer has attached the
notice in Exhibit A and to related Covered Code.
6 VERSIONS OF THE LICENSE.
- 6.1. New Versions.
Grantor may publish revised and/or new versions of the License from time to
time. Each version will be given a distinguishing version number.
- 6.2. Effect of New Versions.
Once Covered Code has been published under a particular version of the License,
You may always continue to use it under the terms of that version. You may also
choose to use such Covered Code under the terms of any subsequent version of
- 6.3. Derivative Works.
If You create or use a modified version of this License (which you may only do
in order to apply it to code which is not already Covered Code governed by this
License), You must (a) rename Your license so that the phrase "gSOAP" or
any confusingly similar phrase do not appear in your license (except to note
that your license differs from this License) and (b) otherwise make it clear
that Your version of the license contains terms which differ from the gSOAP
Public License. (Filling in the name of the Initial Developer, Original Code or
Contributor in the notice described in Exhibit A shall not of themselves
be deemed to be modifications of this License.)

patent where such claim is resolved (such as by license or settlement) prior to
the initiation of patent infringement litigation, then the reasonable value of
the licenses granted by such Participant under Sections 2.1 or 2.2
shall be taken into account in determining the amount or value of any payment
- In the event of termination under Sections 8.1 or
8.2 above, all end user license agreements (excluding distributors
