Copyright (C) 2010 vBulletin Solutions, Inc. All rights reserved.

Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute this license agreement.

The intent of this license is to establish freedom to share and change the software regulated by this license under the open source model.

This copyright license applies to any software containing a notice placed by the copyright holder saying that it may be distributed under the terms of the vBulletin Open Source License version 1.0 (the "Software"). This license ("License") covers modification and distribution of the Software, use of third-party application programs based on the Software, and development of free software which uses the Software.


Granted Rights


1. You are granted the worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free rights set forth in this License provided you agree to and comply with any and all conditions in this License. Whole or partial distribution of the Software, or software items that build upon or enhance the Software, in any form, signifies acceptance of this License.


2. You may copy and distribute the Software in unmodified form provided that the entire package, including but not restricted to, copyright, trademark notices and disclaimers, as released by the initial developer of the Software, is distributed.


3. You may make modifications to the Software and distribute your modifications, in a form that is separate from the Software, such as patches, for example. The following restrictions apply to all modifications:

a. Modifications must not alter or remove any copyright notices in the Software.
b. When modifications to the Software are released under this License, a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free right is granted to the initial developer of the Software to distribute your modification in future versions of the Software, provided such versions remain available under these terms in addition to any other license(s) of the initial developer.


4. You may use the original or modified versions of the Software to build and run application programs legally developed by you or by others.

5. You may develop application programs, reusable components and other software items that build upon or enhance the original or modified versions of the Software. These items, when distributed, are subject to the following requirements:

a. You must ensure that all recipients of these items are also able to receive and use the complete machine-readable source code to the items without any charge beyond the costs of data transfer.

b. You must explicitly license all recipients of your items to use and re-distribute original and modified versions of the items in both machine-executable and source code forms. The recipients must be able to do so free of charge, and they must be able to re-distribute to anyone they choose.

c. If the items are not available to the general public, and the initial developer of the Software requests a copy of the items, then you must supply one.

This License does not grant permission to use the trade names, trademarks, service marks, logos or product names of the Software developer, except as required for reasonable and customary use in describing the origin of the Software and reproducing the content of the notice.


Limitations of Liability


In no event shall the initial Software developers or copyright holders be liable for any damages whatsoever, including - but not restricted to - lost revenue or profits or other direct, indirect, special, incidental or consequential damages, even if they have been advised of the possibility of such damages, except to the extent invariable law, if any, provides otherwise..


No Warranty



The Software and this License are provided AS IS with NO WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING THE WARRANTY OF DESIGN, MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, to the extent permitted by law.
