         trademark) Licensable by Initial Developer to use, reproduce,
         modify, display, perform, sublicense and distribute the Original
         Code (or portions thereof) with or without Modifications, and/or
         as part of a Larger Work; and

         Original Code (or portions thereof).
 
         (c) the licenses granted in this Section 2.1(a) and (b) are
         effective on the date Initial Developer first distributes
         Original Code under the terms of this License.
 
         (d) Notwithstanding Section 2.1(b) above, no patent license is
         granted: 1) for code that You delete from the Original Code; 2)

         and/or in combination with its Contributor Version (or portions
         of such combination), to make, use, sell, offer for sale, have

         Contributor Version) or other devices; or 4) under Patent Claims
         infringed by Covered Code in the absence of Modifications made by
         that Contributor.
 
 3. Distribution Obligations.
 
    3.1. Application of License.
    The Modifications which You create or to which You contribute are
    governed by the terms of this License, including without limitation
    Section 2.2. The Source Code version of Covered Code may be
    distributed only under the terms of this License or a future version
    of this License released under Section 6.1, and You must include a
    copy of this License with every copy of the Source Code You
    distribute. You may not offer or impose any terms on any Source Code
    version that alters or restricts the applicable version of this
    License or the recipients' rights hereunder. However, You may include
    an additional document offering the additional rights described in
    Section 3.5.
 
    3.2. Availability of Source Code.
    Any Modification which You create or to which You contribute must be
    made available in Source Code form under the terms of this License
    either on the same media as an Executable version or via an accepted
    Electronic Distribution Mechanism to anyone to whom you made an
    Executable version available; and if made available via Electronic
    Distribution Mechanism, must remain available for at least twelve (12)
    months after the date it initially became available, or at least six
    (6) months after a subsequent version of that particular Modification
    has been made available to such recipients. You are responsible for
    ensuring that the Source Code version remains available even if the
    Electronic Distribution Mechanism is maintained by a third party.
 
    3.3. Description of Modifications.
    You must cause all Covered Code to which You contribute to contain a
    file documenting the changes You made to create that Covered Code and
    the date of any change. You must include a prominent statement that
    the Modification is derived, directly or indirectly, from Original
    Code provided by the Initial Developer and including the name of the
    Initial Developer in (a) the Source Code, and (b) in any notice in an
    Executable version or related documentation in which You describe the
    origin or ownership of the Covered Code.
 
    3.4. Intellectual Property Matters
         (a) Third Party Claims.
         If Contributor has knowledge that a license under a third party's
         intellectual property rights is required to exercise the rights
         granted by such Contributor under Sections 2.1 or 2.2,
         Contributor must include a text file with the Source Code
         distribution titled "LEGAL" which describes the claim and the
         party making the claim in sufficient detail that a recipient will
         know whom to contact. If Contributor obtains such knowledge after
         the Modification is made available as described in Section 3.2,
         Contributor shall promptly modify the LEGAL file in all copies
         Contributor makes available thereafter and shall take other steps
         (such as notifying appropriate mailing lists or newsgroups)
         reasonably calculated to inform those who received the Covered
         Code that new knowledge has been obtained.
 
         (b) Contributor APIs.
         If Contributor's Modifications include an application programming
         interface and Contributor has knowledge of patent licenses which
         are reasonably necessary to implement that API, Contributor must
         also include this information in the LEGAL file.
 
              (c)    Representations.
         Contributor represents that, except as disclosed pursuant to
         Section 3.4(a) above, Contributor believes that Contributor's
         Modifications are Contributor's original creation(s) and/or
         Contributor has sufficient rights to grant the rights conveyed by
         this License.
 
    3.5. Required Notices.
    You must duplicate the notice in Exhibit A in each file of the Source
    Code.  If it is not possible to put such notice in a particular Source
    Code file due to its structure, then You must include such notice in a
    location (such as a relevant directory) where a user would be likely
    to look for such a notice.  If You created one or more Modification(s)
    You may add your name as a Contributor to the notice described in
    Exhibit A.  You must also duplicate this License in any documentation
    for the Source Code where You describe recipients' rights or ownership
    rights relating to Covered Code.  You may choose to offer, and to
    charge a fee for, warranty, support, indemnity or liability
    obligations to one or more recipients of Covered Code. However, You
    may do so only on Your own behalf, and not on behalf of the Initial
    Developer or any Contributor. You must make it absolutely clear than
    any such warranty, support, indemnity or liability obligation is
    offered by You alone, and You hereby agree to indemnify the Initial
    Developer and every Contributor for any liability incurred by the
    Initial Developer or such Contributor as a result of warranty,
    support, indemnity or liability terms You offer.
 
    3.6. Distribution of Executable Versions.
    You may distribute Covered Code in Executable form only if the
    requirements of Section 3.1-3.5 have been met for that Covered Code,
    and if You include a notice stating that the Source Code version of
    the Covered Code is available under the terms of this License,
    including a description of how and where You have fulfilled the
    obligations of Section 3.2. The notice must be conspicuously included
    in any notice in an Executable version, related documentation or
    collateral in which You describe recipients' rights relating to the
    Covered Code. You may distribute the Executable version of Covered
    Code or ownership rights under a license of Your choice, which may
    contain terms different from this License, provided that You are in
    compliance with the terms of this License and that the license for the
    Executable version does not attempt to limit or alter the recipient's
    rights in the Source Code version from the rights set forth in this
    License. If You distribute the Executable version under a different
    license You must make it absolutely clear that any terms which differ
    from this License are offered by You alone, not by the Initial
    Developer or any Contributor. You hereby agree to indemnify the
    Initial Developer and every Contributor for any liability incurred by
    the Initial Developer or such Contributor as a result of any such
    terms You offer.
 
    3.7. Larger Works.
    You may create a Larger Work by combining Covered Code with other code
    not governed by the terms of this License and distribute the Larger
    Work as a single product. In such a case, You must make sure the
    requirements of this License are fulfilled for the Covered Code.
 
 4. Inability to Comply Due to Statute or Regulation.
 
    If it is impossible for You to comply with any of the terms of this
    License with respect to some or all of the Covered Code due to
    statute, judicial order, or regulation then You must: (a) comply with
    the terms of this License to the maximum extent possible; and (b)
    describe the limitations and the code they affect. Such description
    must be included in the LEGAL file described in Section 3.4 and must
    be included with all distributions of the Source Code. Except to the
    extent prohibited by statute or regulation, such description must be
    sufficiently detailed for a recipient of ordinary skill to be able to
    understand it.
 
 5. Application of this License.
 
    This License applies to code to which the Initial Developer has
    attached the notice in Exhibit A and to related Covered Code.
 
 6. Versions of the License.
 
    6.1. New Versions.
    Netscape Communications Corporation ("Netscape") may publish revised
    and/or new versions of the License from time to time. Each version
    will be given a distinguishing version number.
 
    6.2. Effect of New Versions.
    Once Covered Code has been published under a particular version of the
    License, You may always continue to use it under the terms of that
    version. You may also choose to use such Covered Code under the terms
    of any subsequent version of the License published by Netscape. No one
    other than Netscape has the right to modify the terms applicable to
    Covered Code created under this License.
 
    6.3. Derivative Works.
    If You create or use a modified version of this License (which you may
    only do in order to apply it to code which is not already Covered Code
    governed by this License), You must (a) rename Your license so that
    the phrases "Mozilla", "MOZILLAPL", "MOZPL", "Netscape",
    "MPL", "NPL" or any confusingly similar phrase do not appear in your
    license (except to note that your license differs from this License)
    and (b) otherwise make it clear that Your version of the license
    contains terms which differ from the Mozilla Public License and
    Netscape Public License. (Filling in the name of the Initial
    Developer, Original Code or Contributor in the notice described in
    Exhibit A shall not of themselves be deemed to be modifications of
    this License.)
 
 7. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY.
 
    COVERED CODE IS PROVIDED UNDER THIS LICENSE ON AN "AS IS" BASIS,
    WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING,
    WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES THAT THE COVERED CODE IS FREE OF
    DEFECTS, MERCHANTABLE, FIT FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR NON-INFRINGING.
    THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE COVERED CODE
    IS WITH YOU. SHOULD ANY COVERED CODE PROVE DEFECTIVE IN ANY RESPECT,
    YOU (NOT THE INITIAL DEVELOPER OR ANY OTHER CONTRIBUTOR) ASSUME THE
    COST OF ANY NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION. THIS DISCLAIMER
    OF WARRANTY CONSTITUTES AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THIS LICENSE. NO USE OF
    ANY COVERED CODE IS AUTHORIZED HEREUNDER EXCEPT UNDER THIS DISCLAIMER.
 
 8. TERMINATION.
 
    8.1.  This License and the rights granted hereunder will terminate
    automatically if You fail to comply with terms herein and fail to cure
    such breach within 30 days of becoming aware of the breach. All
    sublicenses to the Covered Code which are properly granted shall
    survive any termination of this License. Provisions which, by their
    nature, must remain in effect beyond the termination of this License
    shall survive.
 
    8.2.  If You initiate litigation by asserting a patent infringement
    claim (excluding declatory judgment actions) against Initial Developer
    or a Contributor (the Initial Developer or Contributor against whom
    You file such action is referred to as "Participant")  alleging that:
 
    (a)  such Participant's Contributor Version directly or indirectly
    infringes any patent, then any and all rights granted by such
    Participant to You under Sections 2.1 and/or 2.2 of this License
    shall, upon 60 days notice from Participant terminate prospectively,
    unless if within 60 days after receipt of notice You either: (i)
    agree in writing to pay Participant a mutually agreeable reasonable
    royalty for Your past and future use of Modifications made by such
    Participant, or (ii) withdraw Your litigation claim with respect to
    the Contributor Version against such Participant.  If within 60 days
    of notice, a reasonable royalty and payment arrangement are not
    mutually agreed upon in writing by the parties or the litigation claim
    is not withdrawn, the rights granted by Participant to You under
    Sections 2.1 and/or 2.2 automatically terminate at the expiration of
    the 60 day notice period specified above.
 
    (b)  any software, hardware, or device, other than such Participant's
    Contributor Version, directly or indirectly infringes any patent, then
    any rights granted to You by such Participant under Sections 2.1(b)
    and 2.2(b) are revoked effective as of the date You first made, used,
    sold, distributed, or had made, Modifications made by that
    Participant.
 
    8.3.  If You assert a patent infringement claim against Participant
    alleging that such Participant's Contributor Version directly or
    indirectly infringes any patent where such claim is resolved (such as
    by license or settlement) prior to the initiation of patent
    infringement litigation, then the reasonable value of the licenses
    granted by such Participant under Sections 2.1 or 2.2 shall be taken
    into account in determining the amount or value of any payment or
    license.
 
    8.4.  In the event of termination under Sections 8.1 or 8.2 above,
    all end user license agreements (excluding distributors and resellers)
    which have been validly granted by You or any distributor hereunder
    prior to termination shall survive termination.
 
 9. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.
 
    UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL THEORY, WHETHER TORT
    (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), CONTRACT, OR OTHERWISE, SHALL YOU, THE INITIAL
    DEVELOPER, ANY OTHER CONTRIBUTOR, OR ANY DISTRIBUTOR OF COVERED CODE,
    OR ANY SUPPLIER OF ANY OF SUCH PARTIES, BE LIABLE TO ANY PERSON FOR
    ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY
    CHARACTER INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF GOODWILL,
    WORK STOPPAGE, COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION, OR ANY AND ALL OTHER
    COMMERCIAL DAMAGES OR LOSSES, EVEN IF SUCH PARTY SHALL HAVE BEEN
    INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. THIS LIMITATION OF
    LIABILITY SHALL NOT APPLY TO LIABILITY FOR DEATH OR PERSONAL INJURY
    RESULTING FROM SUCH PARTY'S NEGLIGENCE TO THE EXTENT APPLICABLE LAW
    PROHIBITS SUCH LIMITATION. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW THE
    EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO
    THIS EXCLUSION AND LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.
 
 10. U.S. GOVERNMENT END USERS.
 
    The Covered Code is a "commercial item," as that term is defined in
    48 C.F.R. 2.101 (Oct. 1995), consisting of "commercial computer
    software" and "commercial computer software documentation," as such
    terms are used in 48 C.F.R. 12.212 (Sept. 1995). Consistent with 48
    C.F.R. 12.212 and 48 C.F.R. 227.7202-1 through 227.7202-4 (June 1995),
    all U.S. Government End Users acquire Covered Code with only those
    rights set forth herein.
 
 11. MISCELLANEOUS.
 
    This License represents the complete agreement concerning subject
    matter hereof. If any provision of this License is held to be
    unenforceable, such provision shall be reformed only to the extent
    necessary to make it enforceable. This License shall be governed by
    California law provisions (except to the extent applicable law, if
    any, provides otherwise), excluding its conflict-of-law provisions.
    With respect to disputes in which at least one party is a citizen of,
    or an entity chartered or registered to do business in the United
    States of America, any litigation relating to this License shall be
    subject to the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts of the Northern
    District of California, with venue lying in Santa Clara County,
    California, with the losing party responsible for costs, including
    without limitation, court costs and reasonable attorneys' fees and
    expenses. The application of the United Nations Convention on
    Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded.
    Any law or regulation which provides that the language of a contract
    shall be construed against the drafter shall not apply to this
    License.
 
 12. RESPONSIBILITY FOR CLAIMS.
 
    As between Initial Developer and the Contributors, each party is
    responsible for claims and damages arising, directly or indirectly,
    out of its utilization of rights under this License and You agree to
    work with Initial Developer and Contributors to distribute such
    responsibility on an equitable basis. Nothing herein is intended or
    shall be deemed to constitute any admission of liability.
 
 13. MULTIPLE-LICENSED CODE.
 
    Initial Developer may designate portions of the Covered Code as
    "Multiple-Licensed".  "Multiple-Licensed" means that the Initial
    Developer permits you to utilize portions of the Covered Code under
    Your choice of the NPL or the alternative licenses, if any, specified
    by the Initial Developer in the file described in Exhibit A.
