The Copyright, sorta speak...


notGNU should be regarded as copy-protected by me, Julie Melbin, as defined via this modified excerpt from the "Artistic License":

The intent of this document is to state the conditions under which notGNU may be copied, such that the I maintain some semblance of artistic control over the development, prevent someone from profitting unknown to me from my efforts, while also providing the users of notGNU the right to use and distribute in a more-or-less customary fashion.

You may make and give away verbatim copies of the binary form of notGNU and associated files without restriction, provided that you duplicate all of the original copyright notices and associated disclaimers. Source for specific platforms where binaries are not provided may also be distributed (as example, the unix source files); no profit should be derived from the distribution of this specific program in any form.

You may otherwise modify your copy of notGNU in any way, provided that you insert a prominent notice in each changed file stating how and when you changed that file, and allowing me to the option to include your modifications in the supported version of notGNU.

In other words, you may distribute notGNU as long as you don't charge for it, and modify notGNU as you see fit for your own use; before including with a sellable package, you are obliged to contact me.

THIS PACKAGE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND WITHOUT ANY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTIBILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.

That said, please enjoy and find it useful; that's the overall goal.
Donations and postcards graciously accepted.
