  2 Grant of Patent Licence

  Licensor hereby grants You a world-wide, royalty-free, non-exclusive, perpetual,
  sub-licensable licence, under patent claims owned or controlled by the Licensor that

  Licensor to use and modify the Original Work and Derivative Works.


  3 Grant of Licence

  3.1 Licensor hereby agrees to provide a machine-readable copy of the Source Code of
      the Original Work along with each copy of the Original Work that Licensor distributes.

  3.2 Licensor reserves the right to satisfy this obligation by placing a machine-readable
      copy of the Source

      Code in an information repository reasonably calculated to permit inexpensive and
      convenient access by You for as long as Licensor continues to distribute the Original
      Work, and by publishing the address of that information repository in a notice immediately
      following the copyright notice that applies to the Original Work.


  4 Exclusions from Licence Grant

  4.1 Neither the names of Licensor, nor the names of any contributors to the Original Work,
      nor any of their trade marks or service marks, may be used to endorse or promote products
      derived from this Original Work without express prior written permission of the Licensor.

  4.2 Nothing in this Licence shall be deemed to grant any rights to trade marks, copyrights,
      patents, trade secrets or any other intellectual property of Licensor except as expressly
      stated herein.

  4.3 No patent licence is granted to make, use, sell or offer to sell embodiments of any patent
      claims other than the Licensed claims defined in clause 2.

  4.4 Nothing in this Licence shall be interpreted to prohibit Licensor from licensing under
      different terms from this Licence any Original Work that Licensor otherwise would have a
      right to license.


  5 Other Terms
    To the extent that the Original Work contains any work which is subject to licence terms
    which conflict with these terms, the terms of the other licence shall take precedence over
    the terms of this Licence, to the extent required to give effect to them.


  6 Third Party Provision
    As an express condition for the grants of licence hereunder, You agree that any Third Party
    Provision by You of a Derivative Work shall be deemed a distribution and shall be Licensed
    to all under the terms of this Licence, as prescribed in clause A.1.1.3 herein.


  7 Attribution Rights

  7.1 You must retain, in the Source Code of any Derivative Works that You create, all copyright,
      patent or trade mark notices from the Source Code of the Original Work, as well as any
      notices of licensing and any descriptive text identified therein as an “Attribution Notice”,
      including the following notice: “on behalf of the GÉANT project, DANTE is the holder of
      the copyright in all material which was developed by a member of the GÉANT project. DANTE is
      Delivery of Advanced Network Technology to Europe Limited (also known as DANTE), a
      not-for-profit limited liability company registered in England and Wales (company number
      02806796) and with its registered company address at 9400 Garsington Road, Oxford Business
      Park, Oxford, OX42HN” The research leading to these results has received funding from the
      European Community’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement no
      238875 (GÉANT).

  7.2 You must cause the Source Code for any Derivative Works that You create to carry a
      prominent Attribution Notice reasonably calculated to inform recipients that You have modified
      the Original Work.


  8 Warranty of Provenance and Disclaimer of Warranty

  8.1 The Licensor warrants that the copyright in and to the Original Work and the patent rights
      granted herein by Licensor are held by the Licensor or are sublicensed to You under the terms
      of this Licence with the permission of the contributor(s) of those copyrights and patent rights.

  8.2 Except as expressly stated in clause 8.1, the Original Work is provided under this Licence
      on an “as is” basis and this Licence expressly excludes all implied terms, conditions and warranties
      to the maximum limit permitted by the applicable law. The entire risk as to the quality of the
      Original Work is with you. This disclaimer of warranty constitutes an essential part of this Licence.
      No licence to Original Work is granted hereunder except under this disclaimer.


  9 Limitation of Liability

  9.1 This limitation of liability shall not apply to liability for death or personal injury resulting
      from Licensor's negligence to the extent applicable law prohibits such limitation.

  9.2 Subject to clause A.9.1 and any applicable law, under no circumstances and under no legal theory,
      whether in tort (including negligence), contract, or otherwise, shall the Licensor be liable to any
      person for any direct, indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages of any character arising
      as a result of this Licence or the use of the Original Work including, without limitation, damages for
      loss of goodwill, work stoppage, computer failure or malfunction, or any and all other commercial damages
      or losses.


  10 Acceptance and Termination

  10.1 If You distribute copies of the Original Work or a Derivative Work, You must make a reasonable effort
       under the circumstances to obtain the express consent (which, for the avoidance of doubt, need not be in
       writing) of recipients to the terms of this Licence.

  10.2 Nothing else but this Licence (or another written agreement between Licensor and You) grants You
       permission to create Derivative Works or to exercise any of the rights granted in clause A.1, and any
       attempt to do so except under the terms of this Licence (or another written agreement between Licensor
       and You) is expressly prohibited by English copyright law, the equivalent laws of other countries, and
       by international treaty.
       Therefore, by exercising any of the rights granted to You in clause A.1, You irrevocably indicate Your
       acceptance of this Licence and all of its terms and conditions.

  10.3 Any failure by you to comply with your obligations under clause A.1.1.3 shall automatically terminate
       this Licence as well as any rights granted to You under this Licence.

  11 Legal Fees

  11.1 In any action to enforce the terms of this Licence or seeking damages relating thereto, the prevailing
       party shall be entitled to recover its costs and expenses, including, without limitation, reasonable
       attorneys' fees and costs incurred in connection with such action, including any appeal of such action.

  11.2 This clause shall survive the termination of this Licence.


  12 Termination for Patent Action

  12.1 This Licence shall terminate automatically and You may no longer exercise any of the rights granted
       to You by this Licence as of the date You commence an action, including a cross-claim or counterclaim,
       against Licensor or any Licensee alleging that the Original Work infringes a patent.

  12.2 This termination provision shall not apply for an action alleging patent infringement by combinations
       of the Original Work with other software or hardware.


  13 Jurisdiction, Venue and Governing Law

  13.1 Any action or suit relating to this Licence may be brought only in the courts of a jurisdiction wherein
       the Licensor resides or in which Licensor conducts its primary business, and under the laws of that
       jurisdiction excluding its conflict-of-law provisions.

  13.2 Any use of the Original Work outside the scope of this Licence or after its termination shall be subject
       to the requirements and penalties of English copyright law, the equivalent laws of other countries and
       international treaty.

  13.3 This clause shall survive the termination of this Licence.


  14 Miscellaneous

  14.1 This Licence represents the entire agreement concerning the subject matter hereof and the parties
       have not relied on any representations not included in this Licence when entering into it.

  14.2 If any provision of this Licence is held to be unenforceable, such provision shall be reformed only to
       the extent necessary to make it enforceable.


  15 Right to Use
     You may use the Original Work in all ways not otherwise restricted or conditioned by this Licence or by law,
     and Licensor promises not to interfere with or be responsible for such uses by You.

  16 Definitions

  16.1 Derivative Works means any work, whether in Source Code or Object Code, that is based on (or
       derived from) the Original Work and for which the editorial revisions, annotations, elaborations, or other
       modifications represent, as a whole, an original work of authorship. For the purposes of this Licence,
       Derivative Works shall not include works that remain separable from, or merely link (or bind by name)
       to the interfaces of, the Work and Derivative Works thereof.

  16.2 Licensor means the individual, individuals, entity or entities that offer(s) the Original Work under the
       terms of this Licence.

  16.3 Object Code means the form of the Original Work resulting from mechanical transformation or
       translation of a Source form, including but not limited to compiled object code, generated documentation,
       and conversions to other media types.

  16.4 Original Work means the work of authorship, whether in Source or Object form, made available
       under the Licence, as indicated by an Attribution Notice that is included in or attached to the work.

  16.5 Source Code means the preferred form of the Original Work for making modifications to it and all
       available documentation describing how to modify the Original Work.

  16.6 Third Party Provision means the use or distribution of the Original Work or Derivative Works in any
       way such that the Original Work or Derivative Works may be used by anyone other than You, whether the
       Original Work or Derivative Works are distributed to those persons or made available as an application
       intended for use over a computer network.

  16.7 You means an individual or entity exercising rights under this Licence who has not previously violated
       the terms of this Licence with respect to the Work, or who has received express permission from the Licensor
       to exercise rights under this Licence despite a previous violation. For legal entities, “You” includes any
       entity that controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with you.
       For purposes of this definition “control” means (i) the power, direct or indirect, to cause the direction or
       management of such entity, whether by contract or otherwise; or (ii) ownership of fifty percent (50%) or more of
       the outstanding shares; or (iii) beneficial ownership of such entity.
