(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 will be provided to the Initial
Developer in Source Code form and are subject to the terms of
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
(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 file.
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 Contributor.
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.
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
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 the License.
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.)

indirectly infringes any 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 or license.
In the event of termination under Sections 8.1 or 8.2 above, all
