    The code contained in this file, including both binary and source [if released by the owner(s)] (hereafter, Software) is subject to copyright by the respective Licensor(s) and ownership remains with such Licensor(s). The Licensor(s) of the original Software remain free to license their respective proprietary Software for other purposes that are independent and separate from this file, without obligation to any party.

    Licensor(s) grant(s) you (hereafter, Licensee) a license to use the Software for academic, research and internal business purposes only, without a fee. "Internal business purposes" means that Licensee may install, use and execute the Software for the purpose of designing and evaluating products. Licensee may submit proposals for research support, and receive funding from private and Government sponsors for continued development, support and maintenance of the Software for the purposes permitted herein.

    Licensee may also disclose results obtained by executing the Software, as well as algorithms embodied therein. Licensee may redistribute the Software to third parties provided that the copyright notices and this License Agreement Notice statement are reproduced on all copies and that no charge is associated with such copies. No patent or other intellectual property license is granted or implied by this Agreement, and this Agreement does not license any acts except those expressly recited.

    Licensee may modify the Software to make derivative works (as defined in Section 101 of Title 17, U.S. Code) (hereafter, Derivative Works), as necessary for its own academic, research and internal business purposes. Title to copyrights and other proprietary rights in Derivative Works created by Licensee shall be owned by Licensee subject, however, to the underlying ownership interest(s) of the Licensor(s) in the copyrights and other proprietary rights in the original Software. All the same rights and licenses granted herein and all other terms and conditions contained in this Agreement pertaining to the Software shall continue to apply to any parts of the Software included in Derivative Works. Licensee's Derivative Work should clearly notify users that it is a modified version and not the original Software distributed by the Licensor(s).

    If Licensee wants to make its Derivative Works available to other parties, such distribution will be governed by the terms and conditions of this License Agreement. Licensee shall not modify this License Agreement, except that Licensee shall clearly identify the contribution of its Derivative Work to this file by adding an additional copyright notice to the other copyright notices listed above, to be added below the line "Copyright Notices/Identification of Subsequent Licensor(s)/Contributors of Derivative Works." A party who is not an owner of such Derivative Work within the meaning of U.S. Copyright Law (i.e., the original author, or the employer of the author if "work of hire") shall not modify this License Agreement or add such party's name to the copyright notices above.

    Each party who contributes Software or makes a Derivative Work to this file (hereafter, Contributed Code) represents to each Licensor and to other Licensees for its own Contributed Code that:

    (a)     Such Contributed Code does not violate (or cause the Software to violate) the laws of the United States, including the export control laws of the United States, or the laws of any other jurisdiction.

    (b)     The contributing party has all legal right and authority to make such Contributed Code available and to grant the rights and licenses contained in this License Agreement without violation or conflict with any law.

    (c)     To the best of the contributing party's knowledge and belief, the Contributed Code does not infringe upon any proprietary rights or intellectual property rights of any third party.

    LICENSOR(S) MAKE(S) NO REPRESENTATIONS ABOUT THE SUITABILITY OF THE SOFTWARE OR DERIVATIVE WORKS FOR ANY PURPOSE. IT IS PROVIDED "AS IS" WITHOUT EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE MERCHANTABILITY, USE OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND ANY WARRANTY AGAINST INFRINGEMENT OF ANY INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS. LICENSOR(S) SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES SUFFERED BY THE USERS OF THE SOFTWARE OR DERIVATIVE WORKS.

    Any Licensee wishing to make commercial use of the Software or Derivative Works should contact each and every Licensor to negotiate an appropriate license for such commercial use, and written permission of all Licensors will be required for such a commercial license. Commercial use includes (1) integration of all or part of the source code into a product for sale by or on behalf of Licensee to third parties, or (2) distribution of the Software or Derivative Works to third parties that need it to utilize a commercial product sold or licensed by or on behalf of Licensee.

    By using or copying this Contributed Code, Licensee agrees to abide by the copyright law and all other applicable laws of the U.S., and the terms of this License Agreement. Any individual Licensor shall have the right to terminate this license immediately by written notice upon Licensee's breach of, or non-compliance with, any of its terms.
