# Yzena Network License
Version 0.0
***This license is a draft. Do not use.***
## Purpose
This license gives users as much permission to work with this software as
possible, while protecting contributors from liability and ensuring that anyone
who makes this software part of any software available for public use publishes
their changes.
## Acceptance
In order to receive this license, you must agree to its rules. The rules of this
license are both obligations under that agreement and conditions to your
license. You must not do anything with this software that triggers a rule that
you cannot or will not follow.
## Source Code
In this license, the phrase "source code" includes the original material
licensed under this license.
## This Software
In this license, the phrase "this software" includes the source code. It also
includes the output of any execution of any algorithm that uses all or part of
this software as all or part of its input, but only if the output itself is
software.
## Copyright
Each contributor licenses you to do everything with this software that would
otherwise infringe that contributor's copyright in it, except anything that
would break any rule of this license.
## Compatibility
Unless any contributor says otherwise, this software can be relicensed under all
later versions of this license.
## Distribution
If you wish to make any part of this software part of any software that is
available for public use, and if you made any changes to the source code, you
must provide the source code, and you must do so under this license or any of
the licenses under [Compatibility][9]. However, this rule need not apply to the
rest of any software for which this software is only a part, including any parts
of the software that this software needs.
## Notices
You must ensure that everyone who uses any software that includes any part of
this software, with or without changes, gets the text of this license or a link
to <https://yzena.com/yzena-network-license>.
## Credits
If the source code includes a file named `CREDITS.md` or `NOTICE.md`, then you
must ensure that everyone who uses any software that includes or uses all or
part of this software, with or without changes, also gets the verbatim text of
that file.
## Trademarks
This License does not grant you any rights to the names, trademarks, service
marks, or logos of any contributors.
## Litigation
You cannot initiate any patent litigation claiming that this software infringes
any patent, directly or indirectly.
## Excuse
If any contributor notifies you in writing that you have not complied with
[Distribution][0], [Notices][1], [Credits][2], [Trademarks][3], and/or
[Litigation][4], you can keep your license by taking all practical steps to
comply within 30 days after the notice. If you do not do so, your license ends
immediately after the 30 days.
## Patent
Each contributor licenses you to do everything with this software that would
otherwise infringe any patent claims they can license or become able to license.
## Reliability
No contributor can revoke this license from you unless you do not follow its
rules.
## No Liability
***As far as the law allows, this software comes as is, without any warranty or
condition, and no contributor will be liable to anyone for any damages related
to this software or this license, under any kind of legal claim.***
