MID Open Source Pre-Release
On this download site, we are pre-releasing MID to the interested development
community as Open Source code.
We are intending to follow an Open Source model to make sure that the
widest possible community has access to MID.
MID is copyrighted by the University of Maryland, and is available for
all users, in accordance with the Open
Source model. It is available as free software for license according
to the Mozilla Public License.
Notes about MID and Open Source:
If you re-distribute this code, with or without modifications, then one
of the provisions of the Mozilla Public License, under which you are using
it, is to include the following statement (Exhibit A):
If you download this code, you need to follow the
Public License (MPL). Please note that we are using MPL only as a legal
framework for MID to be released as Open Source code. It has nothing to
do with Netscape or Netscape code.
This is "pre-release" software, meaning:
the terms of the license may change;
the baseline for what constitutes the "Original Code" will definitely change;
and we don't have all the open source "infrastructure" in place (such as
discussion groups and FTP servers for public posting of modifications).
We are releasing this code only to the "interested development community,"
meaning that if you download the code, we really want your feedback on
both the code and the open source model that we intend to use.
We have not done all the checking that needs to be completed to satisfy
section 3.4a (third party intellectual property claims). Anyone using the
code does so at their own risk.
