-The TAPR Open Hardware License
-Version 1.0 (May 25, 2007)
-Copyright 2007 TAPR - http://www.tapr.org/OHL
-
-PREAMBLE
-
-Open Hardware is a thing - a physical artifact, either electrical or
-mechanical - whose design information is available to, and usable by,
-the public in a way that allows anyone to make, modify, distribute, and
-use that thing.  In this preface, design information is called
-"documentation" and things created from it are called "products."
-
-The TAPR Open Hardware License ("OHL") agreement provides a legal
-framework for Open Hardware projects.  It may be used for any kind of
-product, be it a hammer or a computer motherboard, and is TAPR's
-contribution to the community; anyone may use the OHL for their Open
-Hardware project.
-
-Like the GNU General Public License, the OHL is designed to guarantee
-your freedom to share and to create.  It forbids anyone who receives
-rights under the OHL to deny any other licensee those same rights to
-copy, modify, and distribute documentation, and to make, use and
-distribute products based on that documentation.
-
-Unlike the GPL, the OHL is not primarily a copyright license.  While
-copyright protects documentation from unauthorized copying, modification, 
-and distribution, it has little to do with your right to make, distribute, 
-or use a product based on that documentation.  For better or worse, patents 
-play a significant role in those activities.  Although it does not prohibit 
-anyone from patenting inventions embodied in an Open Hardware design, and 
-of course cannot prevent a third party from enforcing their patent rights, 
-those who benefit from an OHL design may not bring lawsuits claiming that
-design infringes their patents or other intellectual property.
-
-The OHL addresses unique issues involved in the creation of tangible,
-physical things, but does not cover software, firmware, or code loaded
-into programmable devices.  A copyright-oriented license such as the GPL
-better suits these creations.
-
-How can you use the OHL, or a design based upon it?  While the terms and
-conditions below take precedence over this preamble, here is a summary:
-
-*  You may modify the documentation and make products based upon it.
-
-*  You may use products for any legal purpose without limitation.
-
-*  You may distribute unmodified documentation, but you must include the
-complete package as you received it.
-
-*  You may distribute products you make to third parties, if you either
-include the documentation on which the product is based, or make it
-available without charge for at least three years to anyone who requests
-it.
-
-*  You may distribute modified documentation or products based on it, if
-you:
-    *  License your modifications under the OHL.
-    *  Include those modifications, following the requirements stated
-       below.
-    *  Attempt to send the modified documentation by email to any of the
-       developers who have provided their email address.  This is a good
-       faith obligation - if the email fails, you need do nothing more
-       and may go on with your distribution.
-
-*  If you create a design that you want to license under the OHL, you
-should:
-    *  Include this document in a file named LICENSE (with the appropriate
-       extension) that is included in the documentation package.
-    *  If the file format allows, include a notice like "Licensed under
-       the TAPR Open Hardware License (www.tapr.org/OHL)" in each
-       documentation file.  While not required, you should also include
-       this notice on printed circuit board artwork and the product
-       itself; if space is limited the notice can be shortened or
-       abbreviated.
-    *  Include a copyright notice in each file and on printed circuit
-       board artwork.
-    *  If you wish to be notified of modifications that others may make,
-       include your email address in a file named "CONTRIB.TXT" or
-       something similar.
-
-*  Any time the OHL requires you to make documentation available to
-others, you must include all the materials you received from the
-upstream licensors.  In addition, if you have modified the
-documentation:
-    *  You must identify the modifications in a text file (preferably
-       named "CHANGES.TXT") that you include with the documentation. 
-       That file must also include a statement like "These modifications
-       are licensed under the TAPR Open Hardware License."
-    *  You must include any new files you created, including any
-       manufacturing files (such as Gerber files) you create in the
-       course of making products.
-    *  You must include both "before" and "after" versions of all files
-       you modified.
-    *  You may include files in proprietary formats, but you must also
-       include open format versions (such as Gerber, ASCII, Postscript,
-       or PDF) if your tools can create them.

-TERMS AND CONDITIONS
-
-1.   Introduction
-1.1  This Agreement governs how you may use, copy, modify, and
-distribute Documentation, and how you may make, have made, and
-distribute Products based on that Documentation.  As used in this
-Agreement, to "distribute" Documentation means to directly or indirectly
-make copies available to a third party, and to "distribute" Products
-means to directly or indirectly give, loan, sell or otherwise transfer
-them to a third party.
-
-1.2  "Documentation" includes:
-     (a) schematic diagrams;
-     (b) circuit or circuit board layouts, including Gerber and other
-         data files used for manufacture;
-     (c) mechanical drawings, including CAD, CAM, and other data files
-         used for manufacture;
-     (d) flow charts and descriptive text; and
-     (e) other explanatory material.
-Documentation may be in any tangible or intangible form of expression,
-including but not limited to computer files in open or proprietary
-formats and representations on paper, film, or other media.
-
-1.3  "Products" include:
-     (a) circuit boards, mechanical assemblies, and other physical parts
-         and components;
-     (b) assembled or partially assembled units (including components
-         and subassemblies); and
-     (c) parts and components combined into kits intended for assembly
-         by others;
-which are based in whole or in part on the Documentation.
-
-1.4  This Agreement applies to any Documentation which contains a
-notice stating it is subject to the TAPR Open Hardware License, and to
-all Products based in whole or in part on that Documentation.  If
-Documentation is distributed in an archive (such as a "zip" file) which
-includes this document, all files in that archive are subject to this
-Agreement unless they are specifically excluded.  Each person who
-contributes content to the Documentation is referred to in this
-Agreement as a "Licensor."
-
-1.5  By (a) using, copying, modifying, or distributing the
-Documentation, or (b) making or having Products made or distributing
-them, you accept this Agreement, agree to comply with its terms, and
-become a "Licensee."  Any activity inconsistent with this Agreement will
-automatically terminate your rights under it (including the immunities
-from suit granted in Section 2), but the rights of others who have
-received Documentation, or have obtained Products, directly or
-indirectly from you will not be affected so long as they fully comply
-with it themselves.
-
-1.6  This Agreement does not apply to software, firmware, or code
-loaded into programmable devices which may be used in conjunction with
-Documentation or Products.  Such software is subject to the license
-terms established by its copyright holder(s).
-
-2.   Patents
-2.1  Each Licensor grants you, every other Licensee, and every
-possessor or user of Products a perpetual, worldwide, and royalty-free
-immunity from suit under any patent, patent application, or other
-intellectual property right which he or she controls, to the extent
-necessary to make, have made, possess, use, and distribute Products.
-This immunity does not extend to infringement arising from modifications
-subsequently made by others.
-
-2.2  If you make or have Products made, or distribute Documentation
-that you have modified, you grant every Licensor, every other Licensee,
-and every possessor or user of Products a perpetual, worldwide, and
-royalty-free immunity from suit under any patent, patent application, or
-other intellectual property right which you control, to the extent
-necessary to make, have made, possess, use, and distribute Products.
-This immunity does not extend to infringement arising from modifications
-subsequently made by others.
-
-2.3  To avoid doubt, providing Documentation to a third party for the
-sole purpose of having that party make Products on your behalf is not
-considered "distribution,"\" and a third party's act of making Products
-solely on your behalf does not cause that party to grant the immunity
-described in the preceding paragraph.
-
-2.4  These grants of immunity are a material part of this Agreement,
-and form a portion of the consideration given by each party to the
-other.  If any court judgment or legal agreement prevents you from
-granting the immunity required by this Section, your rights under this
-Agreement will terminate and you may no longer use, copy, modify or
-distribute the Documentation, or make, have made, or distribute
-Products.
-
-3.   Modifications
-You may modify the Documentation, and those modifications will become
-part of the Documentation.  They are subject to this Agreement, as are
-Products based in whole or in part on them.  If you distribute the
-modified Documentation, or Products based in whole or in part upon it,
-you must email the modified Documentation in a form compliant with
-Section 4 to each Licensor who has provided an email address with the
-Documentation.  Attempting to send the email completes your obligations
-under this Section and you need take no further action if any address
-fails.
-
-4.   Distributing Documentation
-4.1  You may distribute unmodified copies of the Documentation in its
-entirety in any medium, provided that you retain all copyright and other
-notices (including references to this Agreement) included by each
-Licensor, and include an unaltered copy of this Agreement.
-4.2  You may distribute modified copies of the Documentation if you
-comply with all the requirements of the preceding paragraph and:
-     (a) include a prominent notice in an ASCII or other open format
-         file identifying those elements of the Documentation that you
-         changed, and stating that the modifications are licensed under
-         the terms of this Agreement;
-     (b) include all new documentation files that you create, as well as
-         both the original and modified versions of each file you change
-         (files may be in your development tool's native file format,
-         but if reasonably possible, you must also include open format,
-         such as Gerber, ASCII, Postscript, or PDF, versions);
-     (c) do not change the terms of this Agreement with respect to
-         subsequent licensees; and
-     (d) if you make or have Products made, include in the Documentation
-         all elements reasonably required to permit others to make
-         Products, including Gerber, CAD/CAM and other files used for
-         manufacture.
-
-5.   Making Products
-5.1  You may use the Documentation to make or have Products made,
-provided that each Product retains any notices included by the Licensor
-(including, but not limited to, copyright notices on circuit boards).
-5.2  You may distribute Products you make or have made, provided that
-you include with each unit a copy of the Documentation in a form
-consistent with Section 4.  Alternatively, you may include either (i) an
-offer valid for at least three years to provide that Documentation, at
-no charge other than the reasonable cost of media and postage, to any
-person who requests it; or (ii) a URL where that Documentation may be
-downloaded, available for at least three years after you last distribute
-the Product.
-
-6.   NEW LICENSE VERSIONS
-TAPR may publish updated versions of the OHL which retain the same
-general provisions as the present version, but differ in detail to
-address new problems or concerns, and carry a distinguishing version
-number.  If the Documentation specifies a version number which applies
-to it and "any later version", you may choose either that version or any
-later version published by TAPR.  If the Documentation does not specify
-a version number, you may choose any version ever published by TAPR. 
-TAPR owns the copyright to the OHL, but grants permission to any person
-to copy, distribute, and use it in unmodified form.
-
-7.   WARRANTY AND LIABILITY LIMITATIONS
-7.1  THE DOCUMENTATION IS PROVIDED ON AN"AS-IS" BASIS WITHOUT
-WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  ALL
-WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY
-WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND
-TITLE, ARE HEREBY EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED.
-7.2  IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW WILL ANY LICENSOR
-BE LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT,
-INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF
-THE USE OF, OR INABILITY TO USE, THE DOCUMENTATION OR PRODUCTS,
-INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO CLAIMS OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
-INFRINGEMENT OR LOSS OF DATA, EVEN IF THAT PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
-POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
-7.3  You agree that the foregoing limitations are reasonable due to
-the non-financial nature of the transaction represented by this
-Agreement, and acknowledge that were it not for these limitations, the
-Licensor(s) would not be willing to make the Documentation available to
-you.
-7.4  You agree to defend, indemnify, and hold each Licensor harmless
-from any claim brought by a third party alleging any defect in the
-design, manufacture, or operation of any Product which you make, have
-made, or distribute pursuant to this Agreement.
