Amulet toolkit again



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 MAKES NO WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED AS
   TO ANY MATTER INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR
   PURPOSE, OR MERCHANTABILITY, EXCLUSIVITY OR RESULTS OBTAINED FROM
   SPONSOR'S USE OF ANY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY DEVELOPED UNDER THIS
   AGREEMENT, NOR SHALL EITHER PARTY HERETO BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER FOR
   INDIRECT, SPECIAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES SUCH AS LOSS OF PROFITS OR
   INABILITY TO USE SAID INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY OR ANY APPLICATIONS AND
   DERIVATION THEREOF. 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.

   express or implied, to any person concerning the application of or the
   results to be obtained with the Program.

   times remain with CMU, and COMPANY agrees to preserve same. COMPANY

   internal use, without prior written consent of CMU. COMPANY agrees to
   place the appropriate copyright notice on any such copies. Nothing
   herein shall be deemed to grant any license or rights in any other

   Software, or any portion of any derivative works thereof, and CMU
   acknowledges that CMU has no rights to same.

   accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

   to use in advertising, publicity or otherwise any trademark or the
   name of ``CMU''.
