- SNNS License Agreement Readme File for SNNS version 4.2
-SNNS is (Copyright) 1990-95 University of Stuttgart, Institute for
-Parallel and Distributed High Performance Systems (IPVR),
-Breitwiesenstr. 20-22, D-70565 Stuttgart, Fed. Rep. of Germany and
-(Copyright) 1996-98 University of Tuebingen, Wilhelm-Schickard
-Institute for Computer Science, Koestlinstr. 6, D-72074 Tuebingen.
-SNNS is distributed by the University of Tuebingen as `Free Software'
-in a licensing agreement similar in some aspects to the GNU General
-Public License. There are a number of important differences, however,
-regarding modifications and distribution of SNNS to third parties.
-Note also that SNNS is not part of the GNU software nor is any of its
-authors connected with the Free Software Foundation. We only share
-some common beliefs about software distribution. Note further that
-The SNNS License is designed to make sure that you have the freedom to
-give away verbatim copies of SNNS, that you receive source code or can
-get it if you want it and that you can change the software for your
-personal use; and that you know you can do these things.
-We protect your and our rights with two steps: (1) copyright the
-software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal
-permission to copy and distribute the unmodified software or modify it
-for your own purpose.
-In contrast to the GNU license we do not allow modified copies of our
-software to be distributed. You may, however, distribute your
-modifications as separate files (e.g. patch files) along with our
-unmodified SNNS software. We encourage users to send changes and
-improvements which would benefit many other users to us so that all
-users may receive these improvements in a later version. The
-restriction not to distribute modified copies is also useful to
-prevent bug reports from someone else's modifications.
-Also, for our protection, we want to make certain that everyone
-understands that there is NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND for the SNNS
-If you have any questions regarding this license agreement, please
-contact Andreas Zell at
- SNNS License Agreement
-1. This License Agreement applies to the SNNS program and all
-accompanying programs and files that are distributed with a notice
-placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the
-terms of the SNNS License. ``SNNS'', below, refers to any such
-program or work, and a ``work based on SNNS'' means either SNNS or any
-work containing SNNS or a portion of it, either verbatim or with
-modifications. Each licensee is addressed as ``you''.
-2. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of SNNS's source code
-as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and
-appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and
-disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to this
-License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other
-recipients of SNNS a copy of this license along with SNNS.
-3. You may modify your copy or copies of SNNS or any portion of it
-only for your own use. You may not distribute modified copies of SNNS
-You may, however, distribute your modifications as separate files (e.
-patch files) along with the unmodified SNNS software. We also
-encourage users to send changes and improvements which would benefit
-many other users to us so that all users may receive these
-improvements in a later version. The restriction not to distribute
-modified copies is also useful to prevent bug reports from someone
-else's modifications.
-4. If you distribute copies of SNNS you may not charge anything except
-the cost for the media and a fair estimate of the costs of computer
-time or network time directly attributable to the copying.
-5. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, distribute or transfer SNNS
-except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt
-otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense, distribute or transfer SNNS is
-void, and will automatically terminate your rights to use SNNS under
-this License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights to
-use copies, from you under this License will not have their licenses
-terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
-6. By copying, distributing or modifying SNNS (or any work based on
-SNNS) you indicate your acceptance of this license to do so, and all
-its terms and conditions.
-7. Each time you redistribute SNNS (or any work based on SNNS), the
-recipient automatically receives a license from the original licensor
-to copy, distribute or modify SNNS subject to these terms and
-conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions on the
-recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
-8. Incorporation of SNNS or parts of it in commercial programs
-requires a special agreement between the copyright holder and the
-Licensee in writing and ususally involves the payment of license fees.
-If you want to incorporate SNNS or parts of it in commercial programs
-write to the author about further details.
-9. Because SNNS is licensed free of charge, there is no warranty for
-SNNS, to the extent permitted by applicable law. The copyright holders
-and/or other parties provide SNNS ``as is'' without warranty of any
-kind, either expressed or implied, including, but not limited to, the
-implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular
-purpose. The entire risk as to the quality and performance of SNNS is
-with you. Should the program prove defective, you assume the cost of
-all necessary servicing, repair or correction.
-10. In no event will any copyright holder, or any other party who may
-redistribute SNNS 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 SNNS (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 SNNS to operate with
-any other programs), even if such holder or other party has been
-advised of the possibility of such damages.
