For the purpose of context, we prefer the license text be posted in
full in a message in the discussion thread. I've done so in this

Monkey's Audio Source Code License Agreement

License Agreement

1. The Monkey's Audio SDK and source code can be freely used to add
APE format playback, encoding, or tagging support to any product, free
or commercial.  Use of the code for proprietary efforts that don't
support the official APE format require written consent of the author.

2. Monkey's Audio source can be included in GPL and open-source
software, although Monkey's Audio itself will not be subjected to
external licensing requirements or other viral source restrictions.

3. Code changes and improvements must be contributed back to the
Monkey's Audio project free from restrictions or royalties for the
sake of the common good, unless exempted by express written consent of
the author.

4. Any source code, ideas, or libraries used must be plainly
acknowledged in the software using the code.

5. Although the software has been tested thoroughly, the author is in
no way responsible for damages due to bugs or misuse.

6. If you do not completely agree with all of the previous
stipulations, you must cease using this source code and remove it from
your storage device.
