+The Open Publication works may be reproduced and distributed in whole or in par
+t, in any medium physical or electronic, provided that the terms of this licens
+e are adhered to, and that this license or an incorporation of it by reference
+(with any options elected by the author(s) and/or publisher) is displayed in th
+e reproduction.
+Proper form for an incorporation by reference is as follows:
+Copyright (c) <year> by <author's name or designee>. This material may be dist
+ributed only subject to the terms and conditions set forth in the Open Publicat
+ion License, vX.Y or later (the latest version is presently available at http:/
+The reference must be immediately followed with any options elected by the auth
+or(s) and/or publisher of the document (see section VI).
+Commercial redistribution of Open Publication-licensed material is permitted.
+Any publication in standard (paper) book form shall require the citation of the
+ original publisher and author. The publisher and author's names shall appear o
+n all outer surfaces of the book. On all outer surfaces of the book the origina
+l publisher's name shall be as large as the title of the work and cited as poss
+essive with respect to the title.
+The copyright to each Open Publication is owned by its author(s) or designee.
+The following license terms apply to all Open Publication works, unless otherwi
+se explicitly stated in the document.
+Mere aggregation of Open Publication works or a portion of an Open Publication
+work with other works or programs on the same media shall not cause this licens
+e to apply to those other works. The aggregate work shall contain a notice spec
+ifying the inclusion of the Open Publication material and appropriate copyright
+ notice.
+SEVERABILITY. If any part of this license is found to be unenforceable in any j
+urisdiction, the remaining portions of the license remain in force.
+NO WARRANTY. Open Publication works are licensed and provided "as is" without w
+arranty of any kind, express or implied, including, but not limited to, the imp
+lied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose or a wa
+rranty of non-infringement.
+All modified versions of documents covered by this license, including translati
+ons, anthologies, compilations and partial documents, must meet the following r
+1) The modified version must be labeled as such.
+2) The person making the modifications must be identified and the modifications
+ dated.
+3) Acknowledgement of the original author and publisher if applicable must be r
+etained according to normal academic citation practices.
+4) The location of the original unmodified document must be identified.
+5) The original author's (or authors') name(s) may not be used to assert or imp
+ly endorsement of the resulting document without the original author's (or auth
+ors') permission.
+In addition to the requirements of this license, it is requested from and stron
+gly recommended of redistributors that:
+1) If you are distributing Open Publication works on hardcopy or CD-ROM, you pr
+ovide email notification to the authors of your intent to redistribute at least
+ thirty days before your manuscript or media freeze, to give the authors time t
+o provide updated documents. This notification should describe modifications, i
+f any, made to the document.
+2) All substantive modifications (including deletions) be either clearly marked
+ up in the document or else described in an attachment to the document.
+Finally, while it is not mandatory under this license, it is considered good fo
+rm to offer a free copy of any hardcopy and CD-ROM expression of an Open Public
+ation-licensed work to its author(s).
+The author(s) and/or publisher of an Open Publication-licensed document may ele
+ct certain options by appending language to the reference to or copy of the lic
+ense. These options are considered part of the license instance and must be inc
+luded with the license (or its incorporation by reference) in derived works.
+A. To prohibit distribution of substantively modified versions without the expl
+icit permission of the author(s). "Substantive modification" is defined as a ch
+ange to the semantic content of the document, and excludes mere changes in form
+at or typographical corrections.
+To accomplish this, add the phrase `Distribution of substantively modified vers
+ions of this document is prohibited without the explicit permission of the copy
+right holder.' to the license reference or copy.
+B. To prohibit any publication of this work or derivative works in whole or in
+part in standard (paper) book form for commercial purposes is prohibited unless
+ prior permission is obtained from the copyright holder.
+To accomplish this, add the phrase 'Distribution of the work or derivative of t
+he work in any standard (paper) book form is prohibited unless prior permission
+ is obtained from the copyright holder.' to the license reference or copy.
+(This is not considered part of the license.)
+Open Publication works are available in source format via the Open Publication
+home page at
+Open Publication authors who want to include their own license on Open Publicat
+ion works may do so, as long as their terms are not more restrictive than the O
+pen Publication license.
