BY EXERCISING ANY RIGHTS TO THE WORK PROVIDED HERE, YOU ACCEPT AND
AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS LICENSE. THE LICENSOR GRANTS
YOU THE RIGHTS CONTAINED HERE IN CONSIDERATION OF YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF
SUCH TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
a. "Collective Work" means a work, such as a periodical issue,
anthology or encyclopedia, in which the Work in its entirety in
unmodified form, along with a number of other contributions,
constituting separate and independent works in themselves, are
assembled into a collective whole. A work that constitutes a

defined below) for the purposes of this License.

Work and other pre-existing works, such as a translation, musical
arrangement, dramatization, fictionalization, motion picture
version, sound recording, art reproduction, abridgment,
condensation, or any other form in which the Work may be recast,
transformed, or adapted, except that a work that constitutes a
Collective Work will not be considered a Derivative Work for the
purpose of this License.

under the terms of this License.
d. "Original Author" means the individual or entity who created the
e. "Work" means the copyrightable work of authorship offered under

limit, or restrict any rights arising from fair use, first sale or
other limitations on the exclusive rights of the copyright owner
under copyright law or other applicable laws.
3. License Grant & Restrictions. Subject to the terms and conditions
of this License, Licensor hereby grants You a worldwide,
royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual (for the duration of the
applicable copyright) license to exercise the rights in the Work as
stated below on the conditions as stated below:
a. Re-creativity permitted. You may create and reproduce Derivative
Works, provided that:
i. the Derivative Work(s) constitute a good-faith partial or
recombined usage employing "sampling," "collage," "mash-up,"
or other comparable artistic technique, whether now known or
hereafter devised, that is highly transformative of the
original, as appropriate to the medium, genre, and market
ii. Your Derivative Work(s) must only make a partial use of
the original Work, or if You choose to use the original Work
as a whole, You must either use the Work as an insubstantial
portion of Your Derivative Work(s) or transform it into
something substantially different from the original Work. In
the case of a musical Work and/or audio recording, the mere
synchronization ("synching") of the Work with a moving image
shall not be considered a transformation of the Work into
something substantially different.
b. You may distribute copies or phonorecords of, display publicly,
perform publicly, and perform publicly by means of a digital audio
transmission, any Derivative Work(s) authorized under this License.
c. Prohibition on advertising. All advertising and promotional uses
are excluded from the above rights, except for advertisement and
promotion of the Derivative Work(s) that You are creating from the
Work and Yourself as the author thereof.
d. Noncommercial sharing of verbatim copies permitted.
i. You may reproduce the Work, incorporate the Work into one
or more Collective Works, and reproduce the Work as
incorporated in the Collective Works. You may distribute
copies or phonorecords of, display publicly, perform
publicly, and perform publicly by means of a digital audio
transmission the Work including or incorporated in Collective
ii. You may not exercise any of the rights granted to You in
the paragraph immediately above in any manner that is
primarily intended for or directed toward commercial
advantage or private monetary compensation. The exchange of
the Work for other copyrighted works by means of digital
file-sharing or otherwise shall not be considered to be
intended for or directed toward commercial advantage or
private monetary compensation, provided there is no payment
of any monetary compensation in connection with the exchange
of copyrighted works.
5. Attribution and Notice.
i. If You distribute, publicly display, publicly perform, or
publicly digitally perform the Work or any Derivative Works
or Collective Works, You must keep intact all copyright
notices for the Work and give the Original Author credit
reasonable to the medium or means You are utilizing by
conveying the name (or pseudonym if applicable) of the
Original Author if supplied; the title of the Work if
supplied; to the extent reasonably practicable, provide the
Uniform Resource Identifier, if any, that Licensor specifies
to be associated with the Work or a Derivative Work, unless
such Uniform Resource Identifier does not refer to the
copyright notice or licensing information for the Work; and
in the case of a Derivative Work, provide a credit
identifying the use of the Work in the Derivative Work (e.g.,
"Remix of the Work by Original Author," or "Inclusion of a
portion of the Work by Original Author in collage"). Such
credit may be implemented in any reasonable manner; provided,
however, that in the case of a Derivative Work or Collective
Work, at a minimum such credit will appear where any other
comparable authorship credit appears and in a manner at least
as prominent as such other comparable authorship credit.
ii. You may distribute, publicly display, publicly perform or
publicly digitally perform the Work only under the terms of
this License, and You must include a copy of, or the Uniform
Resource Identifier for, this License with every copy or
phonorecord of the Work or Derivative Work You distribute,
publicly display, publicly perform, or publicly digitally
perform. You may not offer or impose any terms on the Work
that alter or restrict the terms of this License or the
recipients' exercise of the rights granted hereunder. You may
not sublicense the Work. You must keep intact all notices
that refer to this License and to the disclaimer of
warranties. You may not distribute, publicly display,
publicly perform, or publicly digitally perform the Work with
any technological measures that control access of use of the
Work in a manner inconsistent with the terms of this
License. The above applies to the Work as incorporated in a
Collective Work, but this does not require the Collective
Work apart from the Work itself to be made subject to the
terms of this License. Upon notice from any Licensor You
must, to the extent practicable, remove from the Derivative
Work or Collective Work any reference to such Licensor or the
Original Author, as requested.
The above rights may be exercised in all media and formats whether now
known or hereafter devised. The above rights include the right to make
such modifications as are technically necessary to exercise the rights
in other media and formats. All rights not expressly granted by
Licensor are hereby reserved.
UNLESS SPECIFIED OTHERWISE BY THE PARTIES IN A SEPARATE WRITING,
LICENSOR OFFERS THE WORK AS-IS AND MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR
WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION,
WARRANTIES OF TITLE, MERCHANTIBILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE, NONINFRINGEMENT, OR THE ABSENCE OF LATENT OR OTHER DEFECTS,
ACCURACY, OR THE PRESENCE OR ABSENCE OF ERRORS, WHETHER OR NOT

SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES
ARISING OUT OF THIS LICENSE OR THE USE OF THE WORK, EVEN IF LICENSOR
HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
a. This License and the rights granted hereunder will terminate
automatically upon any breach by You of the terms of this
License. Individuals or entities who have received Derivative Works
or Collective Works from You under this License, however, will not
have their licenses terminated provided such individuals or
entities remain in full compliance with those licenses. Sections 1,
2, 4, 5, 6, and 7 will survive any termination of this License.
b. Subject to the above terms and conditions, the license granted
here is perpetual (for the duration of the applicable copyright in
the Work). Notwithstanding the above, Licensor reserves the right
to release the Work under different license terms or to stop
distributing the Work at any time; provided, however that any such
election will not serve to withdraw this License (or any other
license that has been granted under the terms of this License), and
this License will continue in full force and effect unless
terminated as stated above.
a. Each time You distribute or publicly digitally perform the Work
or a Collective Work, the Licensor offers to the recipient a
license to the Work on the same terms and conditions as the license
granted to You under this License.
b. Each time You distribute or publicly digitally perform a
Derivative Work, Licensor offers to the recipient a license to the
original Work on the same terms and conditions as the license
granted to You under this License.
c. If any provision of this License is invalid or unenforceable
under applicable law, it shall not affect the validity or
enforceability of the remainder of the terms of this License, and
without further action by the parties to this agreement, such
provision shall be reformed to the minimum extent necessary to make
such provision valid and enforceable.
d. No term or provision of this License shall be deemed waived and
no breach consented to unless such waiver or consent shall be in
writing and signed by the party to be charged with such waiver or
e. This License constitutes the entire agreement between the
parties with respect to the Work licensed here. There are no
understandings, agreements, or representations with respect to the
Work, and with respect to the subject matter hereof, not specified
above. Licensor shall not be bound by any additional provisions
that may appear in any communication from You. This License may not
be modified without the mutual written agreement of the Licensor
