General Public License, applies to certain designated libraries, and  
is quite different from the ordinary General Public License.  We use  
this license for certain libraries in order to permit linking those  
libraries into non-free programs.  
  
  When a program is linked with a library, whether statically or using  
a shared library, the combination of the two is legally speaking a  
combined work, a derivative of the original library.  The ordinary  
General Public License therefore permits such linking only if the  
entire combination fits its criteria of freedom.  The Lesser General  
Public License permits more lax criteria for linking other code with  
the library.  
  
  We call this license the "Lesser" General Public License because it  
does Less to protect the user's freedom than the ordinary General  
Public License.  It also provides other free software developers Less  
of an advantage over competing non-free programs.  These disadvantages  
are the reason we use the ordinary General Public License for many  
libraries.  However, the Lesser license provides advantages in certain  
special circumstances.  
  
  For example, on rare occasions, there may be a special need to  
encourage the widest possible use of a certain library, so that it becomes  
a de-facto standard.  To achieve this, non-free programs must be  
allowed to use the library.  A more frequent case is that a free  
library does the same job as widely used non-free libraries.  In this  
case, there is little to gain by limiting the free library to free  
software only, so we use the Lesser General Public License.  
  
  In other cases, permission to use a particular library in non-free  
programs enables a greater number of people to use a large body of  
free software.  For example, permission to use the GNU C Library in  
non-free programs enables many more people to use the whole GNU  
operating system, as well as its variant, the GNU/Linux operating  
system.  
  
  Although the Lesser General Public License is Less protective of the  
users' freedom, it does ensure that the user of a program that is  
linked with the Library has the freedom and the wherewithal to run  
that program using a modified version of the Library.  
  
  The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and  
modification follow.  Pay close attention to the difference between a  
"work based on the library" and a "work that uses the library".  The  
former contains code derived from the library, whereas the latter must  
be combined with the library in order to run.

program which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder or  
other authorized party saying it may be distributed under the terms of  
this Lesser General Public License (also called "this License").  
Each licensee is addressed as "you".
