15Using Creative Commons Public Licenses
16
17Creative Commons public licenses provide a standard set of terms and
18conditions that creators and other rights holders may use to share
19original works of authorship and other material subject to copyright
20and certain other rights specified in the public license below. The
21following considerations are for informational purposes only, are not
22exhaustive, and do not form part of our licenses.
23
24     Considerations for licensors: Our public licenses are
25     intended for use by those authorized to give the public
26     permission to use material in ways otherwise restricted by
27     copyright and certain other rights. Our licenses are
28     irrevocable. Licensors should read and understand the terms
29     and conditions of the license they choose before applying it.
30     Licensors should also secure all rights necessary before
31     applying our licenses so that the public can reuse the
32     material as expected. Licensors should clearly mark any
33     material not subject to the license. This includes other CC-
34     licensed material, or material used under an exception or
35     limitation to copyright. More considerations for licensors:
36        wiki.creativecommons.org/Considerations_for_licensors
37
38     Considerations for the public: By using one of our public
39     licenses, a licensor grants the public permission to use the
40     licensed material under specified terms and conditions. If
41     the licensor's permission is not necessary for any reason--for
42     example, because of any applicable exception or limitation to
43     copyright--then that use is not regulated by the license. Our
44     licenses grant only permissions under copyright and certain
45     other rights that a licensor has authority to grant. Use of
46     the licensed material may still be restricted for other
47     reasons, including because others have copyright or other
48     rights in the material. A licensor may make special requests,
49     such as asking that all changes be marked or described.
50     Although not required by our licenses, you are encouraged to
51     respect those requests where reasonable. More considerations
52     for the public:

150
151Section 2 -- Scope.
152
153  a. License grant.
154
155       1. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Public License,
156          the Licensor hereby grants You a worldwide, royalty-free,
157          non-sublicensable, non-exclusive, irrevocable license to
158          exercise the Licensed Rights in the Licensed Material to:
159
160            a. reproduce and Share the Licensed Material, in whole or
161               in part, for NonCommercial purposes only; and
162
163            b. produce, reproduce, and Share Adapted Material for
164               NonCommercial purposes only.
165
166       2. Exceptions and Limitations. For the avoidance of doubt, where
167          Exceptions and Limitations apply to Your use, this Public
168          License does not apply, and You do not need to comply with
169          its terms and conditions.
170
171       3. Term. The term of this Public License is specified in Section
172          6(a).
173
174       4. Media and formats; technical modifications allowed. The
175          Licensor authorizes You to exercise the Licensed Rights in
176          all media and formats whether now known or hereafter created,
177          and to make technical modifications necessary to do so. The
178          Licensor waives and/or agrees not to assert any right or
179          authority to forbid You from making technical modifications
180          necessary to exercise the Licensed Rights, including
181          technical modifications necessary to circumvent Effective
182          Technological Measures. For purposes of this Public License,
183          simply making modifications authorized by this Section 2(a)
184          (4) never produces Adapted Material.
185
186       5. Downstream recipients.
187
188            a. Offer from the Licensor -- Licensed Material. Every
189               recipient of the Licensed Material automatically
190               receives an offer from the Licensor to exercise the
191               Licensed Rights under the terms and conditions of this
192               Public License.
193
194            b. Additional offer from the Licensor -- Adapted Material.
195               Every recipient of Adapted Material from You
196               automatically receives an offer from the Licensor to
197               exercise the Licensed Rights in the Adapted Material
198               under the conditions of the Adapter's License You apply.
199
200            c. No downstream restrictions. You may not offer or impose
201               any additional or different terms or conditions on, or
202               apply any Effective Technological Measures to, the
203               Licensed Material if doing so restricts exercise of the
204               Licensed Rights by any recipient of the Licensed
205               Material.
206
207       6. No endorsement. Nothing in this Public License constitutes or
208          may be construed as permission to assert or imply that You
209          are, or that Your use of the Licensed Material is, connected
210          with, or sponsored, endorsed, or granted official status by,
211          the Licensor or others designated to receive attribution as
212          provided in Section 3(a)(1)(A)(i).
213
214  b. Other rights.
215
216       1. Moral rights, such as the right of integrity, are not
217          licensed under this Public License, nor are publicity,
218          privacy, and/or other similar personality rights; however, to
219          the extent possible, the Licensor waives and/or agrees not to
220          assert any such rights held by the Licensor to the limited
221          extent necessary to allow You to exercise the Licensed
222          Rights, but not otherwise.
223
224       2. Patent and trademark rights are not licensed under this
225          Public License.
226
227       3. To the extent possible, the Licensor waives any right to
228          collect royalties from You for the exercise of the Licensed
229          Rights, whether directly or through a collecting society
230          under any voluntary or waivable statutory or compulsory
231          licensing scheme. In all other cases the Licensor expressly
232          reserves any right to collect such royalties, including when
233          the Licensed Material is used other than for NonCommercial
234          purposes.
235
236
237Section 3 -- License Conditions.
238
239Your exercise of the Licensed Rights is expressly made subject to the
240following conditions.
241
242  a. Attribution.
243
244       1. If You Share the Licensed Material (including in modified
245          form), You must:
246
247            a. retain the following if it is supplied by the Licensor
248               with the Licensed Material:
249
250                 i. identification of the creator(s) of the Licensed
251                    Material and any others designated to receive
252                    attribution, in any reasonable manner requested by
253                    the Licensor (including by pseudonym if
254                    designated);
255
256                ii. a copyright notice;
257
258               iii. a notice that refers to this Public License;
259
260                iv. a notice that refers to the disclaimer of
261                    warranties;
262
263                 v. a URI or hyperlink to the Licensed Material to the
264                    extent reasonably practicable;
265
266            b. indicate if You modified the Licensed Material and
267               retain an indication of any previous modifications; and
268
269            c. indicate the Licensed Material is licensed under this
270               Public License, and include the text of, or the URI or
271               hyperlink to, this Public License.
272
273       2. You may satisfy the conditions in Section 3(a)(1) in any
274          reasonable manner based on the medium, means, and context in
275          which You Share the Licensed Material. For example, it may be
276          reasonable to satisfy the conditions by providing a URI or
277          hyperlink to a resource that includes the required
278          information.
279       3. If requested by the Licensor, You must remove any of the
280          information required by Section 3(a)(1)(A) to the extent
281          reasonably practicable.
282
283  b. ShareAlike.
284
285     In addition to the conditions in Section 3(a), if You Share
286     Adapted Material You produce, the following conditions also apply.
287
288       1. The Adapter's License You apply must be a Creative Commons
289          license with the same License Elements, this version or
290          later, or a BY-NC-SA Compatible License.
291
292       2. You must include the text of, or the URI or hyperlink to, the
293          Adapter's License You apply. You may satisfy this condition
294          in any reasonable manner based on the medium, means, and
295          context in which You Share Adapted Material.
296
297       3. You may not offer or impose any additional or different terms
298          or conditions on, or apply any Effective Technological
299          Measures to, Adapted Material that restrict exercise of the
300          rights granted under the Adapter's License You apply.
301
302
303Section 4 -- Sui Generis Database Rights.
304
305Where the Licensed Rights include Sui Generis Database Rights that
306apply to Your use of the Licensed Material:
307
308  a. for the avoidance of doubt, Section 2(a)(1) grants You the right
309     to extract, reuse, reproduce, and Share all or a substantial
310     portion of the contents of the database for NonCommercial purposes
311     only;
312
313  b. if You include all or a substantial portion of the database
314     contents in a database in which You have Sui Generis Database
315     Rights, then the database in which You have Sui Generis Database
316     Rights (but not its individual contents) is Adapted Material,
317     including for purposes of Section 3(b); and
318
319  c. You must comply with the conditions in Section 3(a) if You Share
320     all or a substantial portion of the contents of the database.
321
322For the avoidance of doubt, this Section 4 supplements and does not
323replace Your obligations under this Public License where the Licensed
324Rights include other Copyright and Similar Rights.
325
326
327Section 5 -- Disclaimer of Warranties and Limitation of Liability.
328
329  a. UNLESS OTHERWISE SEPARATELY UNDERTAKEN BY THE LICENSOR, TO THE
330     EXTENT POSSIBLE, THE LICENSOR OFFERS THE LICENSED MATERIAL AS-IS
331     AND AS-AVAILABLE, AND MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF
332     ANY KIND CONCERNING THE LICENSED MATERIAL, WHETHER EXPRESS,
333     IMPLIED, STATUTORY, OR OTHER. THIS INCLUDES, WITHOUT LIMITATION,
334     WARRANTIES OF TITLE, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
335     PURPOSE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, ABSENCE OF LATENT OR OTHER DEFECTS,
336     ACCURACY, OR THE PRESENCE OR ABSENCE OF ERRORS, WHETHER OR NOT
337     KNOWN OR DISCOVERABLE. WHERE DISCLAIMERS OF WARRANTIES ARE NOT
338     ALLOWED IN FULL OR IN PART, THIS DISCLAIMER MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
339
340  b. TO THE EXTENT POSSIBLE, IN NO EVENT WILL THE LICENSOR BE LIABLE
341     TO YOU ON ANY LEGAL THEORY (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION,
342     NEGLIGENCE) OR OTHERWISE FOR ANY DIRECT, SPECIAL, INDIRECT,
343     INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY, OR OTHER LOSSES,
344     COSTS, EXPENSES, OR DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THIS PUBLIC LICENSE OR
345     USE OF THE LICENSED MATERIAL, EVEN IF THE LICENSOR HAS BEEN
346     ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSSES, COSTS, EXPENSES, OR
347     DAMAGES. WHERE A LIMITATION OF LIABILITY IS NOT ALLOWED IN FULL OR
348     IN PART, THIS LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
349
350  c. The disclaimer of warranties and limitation of liability provided
351     above shall be interpreted in a manner that, to the extent
352     possible, most closely approximates an absolute disclaimer and
353     waiver of all liability.
354
355
356Section 6 -- Term and Termination.
357
358  a. This Public License applies for the term of the Copyright and
359     Similar Rights licensed here. However, if You fail to comply with
360     this Public License, then Your rights under this Public License
361     terminate automatically.
362
363  b. Where Your right to use the Licensed Material has terminated under
364     Section 6(a), it reinstates:
365
366       1. automatically as of the date the violation is cured, provided
367          it is cured within 30 days of Your discovery of the
368          violation; or
369
370       2. upon express reinstatement by the Licensor.
371
372     For the avoidance of doubt, this Section 6(b) does not affect any
373     right the Licensor may have to seek remedies for Your violations
374     of this Public License.
375
376  c. For the avoidance of doubt, the Licensor may also offer the
377     Licensed Material under separate terms or conditions or stop
378     distributing the Licensed Material at any time; however, doing so
379     will not terminate this Public License.
380
381  d. Sections 1, 5, 6, 7, and 8 survive termination of this Public
382     License.
383
384

388     terms or conditions communicated by You unless expressly agreed.

392     independent of the terms and conditions of this Public License.
393
394
395Section 8 -- Interpretation.
396
397  a. For the avoidance of doubt, this Public License does not, and
398     shall not be interpreted to, reduce, limit, restrict, or impose
399     conditions on any use of the Licensed Material that could lawfully
400     be made without permission under this Public License.
401
402  b. To the extent possible, if any provision of this Public License is
403     deemed unenforceable, it shall be automatically reformed to the
404     minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable. If the provision
405     cannot be reformed, it shall be severed from this Public License
406     without affecting the enforceability of the remaining terms and
407     conditions.
408
409  c. No term or condition of this Public License will be waived and no
410     failure to comply consented to unless expressly agreed to by the
411     Licensor.
412
413  d. Nothing in this Public License constitutes or may be interpreted
414     as a limitation upon, or waiver of, any privileges and immunities
415     that apply to the Licensor or You, including from the legal
416     processes of any jurisdiction or authority.
