                    GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
                       Version 3, 29 June 2007

 Copyright (C) 2007 Free Software Foundation, Inc.  Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.

                            Preamble

  The GNU General Public License is a free, copyleft license for software and other kinds of works.

  The licenses for most software and other practical works are designed to take away your freedom 
  to share and change the works.  By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee
  your freedom to share and change all versions of a program--to make sure it remains free software 
  for all its users.  We, the Free Software Foundation, use the GNU General Public License for most
  of our software; it applies also to any other work released this way by its authors.  You can apply 
  it to your programs, too.

  When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price.  Our General Public 
  Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software
  (and charge for them if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it,
  that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs, and that you know you 
  can do these things.

  To protect your rights, we need to prevent others from denying you these rights or asking you to
  surrender the rights.  Therefore, you have certain responsibilities if you distribute copies of 
  the software, or if you modify it: responsibilities to respect the freedom of others.

  For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must pass
  on to the recipients the same freedoms that you received.  You must make sure that they, too, 
  receive or can get the source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their rights.

  Developers that use the GNU GPL protect your rights with two steps: (1) assert copyright on the
  software, and (2) offer you this License giving you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or 
  modify it.

  For the developers' and authors' protection, the GPL clearly explains that there is no warranty 
  for this free software.  For both users' and authors' sake, the GPL requires that modified versions 
  be marked as changed, so that their problems will not be attributed erroneously to authors of 
  previous versions.

  Some devices are designed to deny users access to install or run modified versions of the software
  inside them, although the manufacturer can do so.  This is fundamentally incompatible with the aim
  of protecting users' freedom to change the software.  The systematic pattern of such abuse occurs
  in the area of products for individuals to use, which is precisely where it is most unacceptable.
  Therefore, we have designed this version of the GPL to prohibit the practice for those products.
  If such problems arise substantially in other domains, we stand ready to extend this provision to
  those domains in future versions of the GPL, as needed to protect the freedom of users.

  Finally, every program is threatened constantly by software patents.  States should not allow
  patents to restrict development and use of software on general-purpose computers, but in those
  that do, we wish to avoid the special danger that patents applied to a free program could make it
  effectively proprietary.  To prevent this, the GPL assures that patents cannot be used to render
  the program non-free.
