31 you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:

32 for this service if you wish); that you receive source code or can get

parents:

33 it if you want it; that you can change the software and use pieces of

Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:

34 it in new free programs; and that you are informed that you can do

3b1985cbc908 Initial revision

parents:

37 To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
38 distributors to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender these
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
39 rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
40 you if you distribute copies of the library or if you modify it.

parents:

41
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
42 For example, if you distribute copies of the library, whether gratis
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
43 or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that we gave
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
44 you. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
45 code. If you link other code with the library, you must provide
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
46 complete object files to the recipients, so that they can relink them
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
47 with the library after making changes to the library and recompiling
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:

48 it. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights.

50 We protect your rights with a two-step method: (1) we copyright the
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
51 library, and (2) we offer you this license, which gives you legal
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
52 permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the library.
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision

parents:
diff changeset
53
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:

54 To protect each distributor, we want to make it very clear that
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
55 there is no warranty for the free library. Also, if the library is
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
56 modified by someone else and passed on, the recipients should know
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:

57 that what they have is not the original version, so that the original

61 Finally, software patents pose a constant threat to the existence of
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
62 any free program. We wish to make sure that a company cannot
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision

63 effectively restrict the users of a free program by obtaining a
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
64 restrictive license from a patent holder. Therefore, we insist that
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
65 any patent license obtained for a version of the library must be
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision

68 Most GNU software, including some libraries, is covered by the
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
69 ordinary GNU General Public License. This license, the GNU Lesser
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
70 General Public License, applies to certain designated libraries, and
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
71 is quite different from the ordinary General Public License. We use
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
72 this license for certain libraries in order to permit linking those
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
73 libraries into non-free programs.

75 When a program is linked with a library, whether statically or using
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
76 a shared library, the combination of the two is legally speaking a
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
77 combined work, a derivative of the original library. The ordinary
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
78 General Public License therefore permits such linking only if the
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
79 entire combination fits its criteria of freedom. The Lesser General
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
80 Public License permits more lax criteria for linking other code with
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>

81 the library.

83 We call this license the "Lesser" General Public License because it
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
84 does Less to protect the user's freedom than the ordinary General
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
85 Public License. It also provides other free software developers Less
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
86 of an advantage over competing non-free programs. These disadvantages
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
87 are the reason we use the ordinary General Public License for many
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
88 libraries. However, the Lesser license provides advantages in certain
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
89 special circumstances.
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision

parents:
diff changeset
90
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
91 For example, on rare occasions, there may be a special need to
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
92 encourage the widest possible use of a certain library, so that it
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
93 becomes a de-facto standard. To achieve this, non-free programs must
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
94 be allowed to use the library. A more frequent case is that a free
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
95 library does the same job as widely used non-free libraries. In this
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
96 case, there is little to gain by limiting the free library to free
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
97 software only, so we use the Lesser General Public License.

3b1985cbc908 Initial revision

99 In other cases, permission to use a particular library in non-free
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
100 programs enables a greater number of people to use a large body of
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
101 free software. For example, permission to use the GNU C Library in
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
102 non-free programs enables many more people to use the whole GNU

106 Although the Lesser General Public License is Less protective of the

107 users' freedom, it does ensure that the user of a program that is

108 linked with the Library has the freedom and the wherewithal to run

179 the facility, other than as an argument passed when the facility
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:

3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
181 in the event an application does not supply such function or

183 its purpose remains meaningful.

3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:

185 (For example, a function in a library to compute square roots has
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
186 a purpose that is entirely well-defined independent of the
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
187 application. Therefore, Subsection 2d requires that any
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
188 application-supplied function or table used by this function must
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
189 be optional: if the application does not supply it, the square
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:

190 root function must still compute square roots.)

parents:
diff changeset
191
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
192 These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
193 identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Library,
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
194 and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
195 themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
196 sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
197 distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:

3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
245 work, in isolation, is not a derivative work of the Library, and
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>

248 However, linking a "work that uses the Library" with the Library
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:

249 creates an executable that is a derivative of the Library (because it
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision
Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>
parents:
diff changeset
250 contains portions of the Library), rather than a "work that uses the
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision

parents:

251 library". The executable is therefore covered by this License.
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision

255 that is part of the Library, the object code for the work may be a

Timo Sirainen <tss@iki.fi>

256 derivative work of the Library even though the source code is not.

257 Whether this is true is especially significant if the work can be
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision

258 linked without the Library, or if the work is itself a library. The
3b1985cbc908 Initial revision

265 work. (Executables containing this object code plus portions of the
