PREAMBLE

This licence allows the licensed fonts to be used, studied, modified and

redistributed freely. The fonts, including any derivative works, can be

bundled, embedded, and redistributed provided the terms of this licence

are met. The fonts and derivatives, however, cannot be released under

any other licence. The requirement for fonts to remain under this

licence does not require any document created using the fonts or their

derivatives to be published under this licence, as long as the primary

purpose of the document is not to be a vehicle for the distribution of

the fonts.

DEFINITIONS

"Font Software" refers to the set of files released by the Copyright

Holder(s) under this licence and clearly marked as such. This may

include source files, build scripts and documentation.

"Original Version" refers to the collection of Font Software components

as received under this licence.

"Modified Version" refers to any derivative made by adding to, deleting,

or substituting -- in part or in whole -- any of the components of the

Original Version, by changing formats or by porting the Font Software to

a new environment.

"Copyright Holder(s)" refers to all individuals and companies who have a

copyright ownership of the Font Software.

"Substantially Changed" refers to Modified Versions which can be easily

identified as dissimilar to the Font Software by users of the Font

Software comparing the Original Version with the Modified Version.

To "Propagate" a work means to do anything with it that, without

permission, would make you directly or secondarily liable for

infringement under applicable copyright law, except executing it on a

computer or modifying a private copy. Propagation includes copying,

distribution (with or without modification and with or without charging

a redistribution fee), making available to the public, and in some

countries other activities as well.

PERMISSION & CONDITIONS

This licence does not grant any rights under trademark law and all such

rights are reserved.

Permission is hereby granted, free of charge, to any person obtaining a

copy of the Font Software, to propagate the Font Software, subject to

the below conditions:

1) Each copy of the Font Software must contain the above copyright

notice and this licence. These can be included either as stand-alone

text files, human-readable headers or in the appropriate machine-

readable metadata fields within text or binary files as long as those

fields can be easily viewed by the user.

2) The font name complies with the following:

(a) The Original Version must retain its name, unmodified.

(b) Modified Versions which are Substantially Changed must be renamed to

avoid use of the name of the Original Version or similar names entirely.

(c) Modified Versions which are not Substantially Changed must be

renamed to both (i) retain the name of the Original Version and (ii) add

additional naming elements to distinguish the Modified Version from the

Original Version. The name of such Modified Versions must be the name of

the Original Version, with "derivative X" where X represents the name of

the new work, appended to that name.

3) The name(s) of the Copyright Holder(s) and any contributor to the

Font Software shall not be used to promote, endorse or advertise any

Modified Version, except (i) as required by this licence, (ii) to

acknowledge the contribution(s) of the Copyright Holder(s) or (iii) with

their explicit written permission.

4) The Font Software, modified or unmodified, in part or in whole, must

be distributed entirely under this licence, and must not be distributed

under any other licence. The requirement for fonts to remain under this

licence does not affect any document created using the Font Software,

except any version of the Font Software extracted from a document

created using the Font Software may only be distributed under this

licence.

TERMINATION

This licence becomes null and void if any of the above conditions are

not met.

DISCLAIMER

THE FONT SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED "AS IS", WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND,

EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO ANY WARRANTIES OF

MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NONINFRINGEMENT OF

COPYRIGHT HOLDER BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM, DAMAGES OR OTHER LIABILITY,

INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL

DAMAGES, WHETHER IN AN ACTION OF CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, ARISING

FROM, OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE FONT SOFTWARE OR FROM OTHER

DEALINGS IN THE FONT SOFTWARE.
