I've started packaging the toolkit, and while I was looking through the docs I discovered this formal legalese stuff. I don't speak lawyer, nor do I know enough about the licenses Debian willingly puts up with to say whether this is OK or not. So is this tolerable? -- starts -- 1. This License Agreement, effective as of April 1, 1996, is between: Carnegie Mellon University having a principal place of business at 5000 Forbes Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15213-3890 (``CMU''); and a company (``COMPANY''). 2. CMU owns intellectual property rights to the computer software, electronic information and data, in all forms and versions, identified as Amulet, described in CMU Docket 96-050 (``Software''), and associated documentation (``Document''), collectively (``Program''). 3. CMU grants to COMPANY, upon the terms and conditions set out below, a fully-paid, nonexclusive, world-wide, royalty-free, non-revocable, commercial license to use the Program, or any portion thereof, for any purpose, including, but not limited to, the right to grant sublicenses under CMU's patent and trade secret rights, and copyrights, including any renewals and extensions, the right to use, copy adapt, prepare derivative works of, distribute, sell, lease, or otherwise dispose of, reverse engineer, or disassemble the Software, or any portion thereof (including all subsequent editions, revisions, supplements, and versions thereof), and CMU acknowledges that COMPANY hereby grants no reciprocal rights. 4. COMPANY acknowledges that the Program is a research tool still in the development stage, that it is being supplied ``as is,'' without any accompanying services or improvements from CMU. 5.

CMU DOES NOT MAKE ANY WARRANTY OF ANY KIND WITH RESPECT TO FREEDOM FROM PATENT, TRADEMARK, OR COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT, OR THEFT OF TRADE SECRETS AND DOES NOT ASSUME ANY LIABILITY HEREUNDER FOR ANY INFRINGEMENT OF ANY PATENT, TRADEMARK, OR COPYRIGHT ARISING FROM THE USE OF THE PROGRAM, INFORMATION, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, OR OTHER PROPERTY OR RIGHTS GRANTED OR PROVIDED TO IT HEREUNDER. THE USER AGREES THAT IT WILL NOT MAKE ANY WARRANTY ON BEHALF OF CMU, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, TO ANY PERSON CONCERNING THE APPLICATION OF OR THE RESULTS TO BE OBTAINED WITH THE PROGRAM UNDER THIS AGREEMENT. 6. COMPANY hereby agrees to defend, indemnify and hold harmless CMU, its trustees, officers, employees, attorneys and agents from all claims or demands made against them (and any related losses, expenses or costs) arising out of or relating to COMPANY's and/or its sublicensees' use of, disposition of, or conduct regarding the Licensed Technology and/or Licensed Product including but not limited to, any claims of product liability, personal injury (including, but not limited to, death) damage to property or violation of any laws or regulations including, but not limited to, claims of active or passive negligence. 7.
