文鼎公众授权书(简体中文)

版权所有(C) 1999 文鼎科技开发股份有限公司
台湾110台北市永吉路168号11楼
除以下规定外,保留所有权利。

前言

绝大多数软件的授权书是用来剥夺您共享和修改软件的自由。相反,如果您将我们所授与您的一切权利授与您的接受者,并且确保他们能得到本软件的修改物,文鼎公众授权书特别许可并鼓励您使用本软件。

法律性条款

0. 定义

本授权书中,「字型」是指「文鼎PL细上海宋」、「文鼎PL中楷」(BIG-5码)和「文鼎PL简报宋」、「文鼎PL简中楷」(GB码)等TrueType字型,以及经修改而产生的该等字型的衍生物,包括修改字型样式、更动编码顺序、转换格式、变更字型名称,或者在glyph table中增减一些文字。

「PL」是指「Public License」(公众授权)。

「版权人」是指在字型版权声明中被称为版权所有者之人。

「您」是指被授权者或复制、再散布、修改字型的人。

「自由使用」是指您在所接受的相同条件下,有复制、修改字型及散布字型复制品的自由,而非指价格。如果您愿意,可以对此项服务收取费用。

1. 复制及分发

如果在所有复制品维持本授权书文件(ARPHICPL.TXT)不变,您可以在任何媒体无限制复制及分发本字型之复制品。

2. 修改

如果满足以下条件,您可以用任何方式修改本字型的复制品,包括修改字型样式、更换编码顺序、转换格式、变更字型名称,或者在glyph table中增减一些文字,并且依据上述第一条的规定复制及分发该修改物。

a)您必须在每个修改过的文件中插入明显的声明,表示您如何及何时修改了该文件。

b)您必须允许所有第三方在本授权书条款下,得以「自由使用」该修改物的全部,例如通过提供指定地点的复制路径,或在通常作为软件交换的媒体上发布该修改物。

c)如果修改过的字型在执行时以交谈方式读取命令,您必须使它在开始进入一般的交谈使用方式时打印或显示声明,包括适当的版权声明、无担保声明(或者其他您提供担保的声明),以及使用者可以依据这些条件再分发本字型的声明,并且告知使用者如何看到本授权书的复本。

这些要求适用于整个修改过的作品。如果作品的可辨识部分并非衍生自本字型,且可以合理地认其为独立而个别的作品,则当您将它当作个别作品分发时,本授权书及其条款将不适用于该部分。因此,仅将非基于本字型之其他作品和本字型一起放入贮存或分发媒体的同一卷上,并不会使该其他作品纳入本授权书的适用范围。

3. 解除条件

除非依照本授权书的规定,否则您不能复制、修改、再授权或分发本字型。任何用其他方式复制、修改、再授权或分发本字型的意图,将使本授权书所授与您的权利自动失效。不过,从您那依据本授权书取得复制品和权利的人,只要他们完全遵行条款,其权利将维持有效。

4. 同意

因您未签订本授权书,所以没必要遵行它。然而,没有任何其他文件授与您复制、修改、再授权或分发本字型之权利,如果您不同意本授权书,这些行为是法律所禁止的。因此一旦复制、修改、再授权或分发本字型,就表示您接受本授权书及其一切条款和条件。

5. 自动取得授权

每当您再散布本字型时,收受者便自动从原始授权者处取得依据这些条款和条件复制、分发或修改本字型的授权。您不可对在此所授与收受者之权利实行强加其他限制,您也没有使第三方遵行本授权书的义务。

6. 抵触

若因法院判决、违反专利宣称或任何其他原因(不限于专利纠纷)的结果,使强加于您的条件(不论是法院命令、协议或其他)和授权书的条件有所冲突时,也不能让您违背授权书的条件。如果您不能同时满足本授权书所定的义务及其他相关义务来分发时,那麽您根本不可分发本字型。例如,如果专利授权不许所有直接或间接从您那里取得复制品者,在免授权费的情况下再分发本字型时,唯一能同时满足双方要求的方法是完全避免分发本字型。

如果本条款之任何部分在特定情况下无效或无法实施,条款的其他部分将继续适用,并作为整体适用于其他情况。

7. 无担保

由于本字型是免费授权,在法律允许的范围内,本字型将不附带任何担保。除非另有书面说明,版权人或其他提供本字型者「同样」不提供任何种类的担保,不论是明示还是暗示,包括但不限于销售性和适于特定目的的暗示担保。有关本字型品质和执行的一切危险均由您承担。如果本字型出现瑕疵,您应承担一切所需服务、修复和改正的费用。

8. 损害赔偿请求权的放弃

除非法律规定或以书面形式同意,在任何情况下,任何版权人或以上被允许得以复制、修改或再分发本字型者,均不对您因使用或不能使用本字型(包括但不限于替代商品或服务的采购;使用、数据或利益之损失;或者营业妨碍)所引致的任何直接、间接、必然、偶然、特殊或惩罚性损失负责,即使版权人或其他人已知该损失的可能性时亦不例外。

Arphic Public License(英文原版)

Copyright (C) 1999 Arphic Technology Co., Ltd.
11Fl. No.168, Yung Chi Rd., Taipei, 110 Taiwan
All rights reserved except as specified below.

Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is forbidden.

Preamble

The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the ARPHIC PUBLIC LICENSE specifically permits and encourages you to use this software, provided that you give the recipients all the rights that we gave you and make sure they can get the modifications of this software.

Legal Terms

0. Definitions:

Throughout this License, “Font” means the TrueType fonts “AR PL Mingti2L Big5”, “AR PL KaitiM Big5” (BIG-5 character set) and “AR PL SungtiL GB”, “AR PL KaitiM GB” (GB character set) which are originally distributed by Arphic, and the derivatives of those fonts created through any modification including modifying glyph, reordering glyph, converting format, changing font name, or adding/deleting some characters in/from glyph table.

“PL” means “Public License”.

“Copyright Holder” means whoever is named in the copyright or copyrights for the Font.

“You” means the licensee, or person copying, redistributing or modifying the Font.

“Freely Available” means that you have the freedom to copy or modify the Font as well as redistribute copies of the Font under the same conditions you received, not price. If you wish, you can charge for this service.

1. Copying & Distribution

You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of this Font in any medium, without restriction, provided that you retain this license file (ARPHICPL.TXT) unaltered in all copies.

2. Modification

You may otherwise modify your copy of this Font in any way, including modifying glyph, reordering glyph, converting format, changing font name, or adding/deleting some characters in/from glyph table, and copy and distribute such modifications under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that the following conditions are met:

a) You must insert a prominent notice in each modified file stating how and when you changed that file.

b) You must make such modifications Freely Available as a whole to all third parties under the terms of this License, such as by offering access to copy the modifications from a designated place, or distributing the modifications on a medium customarily used for software interchange.

c) If the modified fonts normally reads commands interactively when run, you must cause it, when started running for such interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide a warranty) and that users may redistribute the Font under these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this License.

These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Font, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this License and its terms, do not apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate works. Therefore, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Font with the Font on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this License.

3. Condition Subsequent

You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Font except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Font will automatically retroactively void your rights under this License. However, parties who have received copies or rights from you under this License will keep their licenses valid so long as such parties remain in full compliance.

4. Acceptance

You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Font. These actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by copying, modifying, sublicensing or distributing the Font, you indicate your acceptance of this License and all its terms and conditions.

5. Automatic Receipt

Each time you redistribute the Font, the recipient automatically receives a license from the original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Font subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipients’ exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to this License.

6. Contradiction

If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not distribute the Font at all. For example, if a patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Font by all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to refrain entirely from distribution of the Font.

If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.

7. NO WARRANTY

BECAUSE THE FONT IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY FOR THE FONT, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW. EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS OR OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE FONT “AS IS” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE FONT IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE FONT PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.

8. DAMAGES WAIVER

UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING, IN NO EVENT WILL ANY COPYRIGHTT HOLDERS, OR OTHER PARTIES WHO MAY COPY, MODIFY OR REDISTRIBUTE THE FONT AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE FONT (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES; LOSS OF USE, DATA OR PROFITS; OR BUSINESS INTERRUPTION), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDERS OR OTHER PARTIES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
