Some versions of the artistic license contain the

following clause:

8.Aggregation of this Package with a commercial distribution is always

permitted provided that the use of this Package is embedded; that is,

when no overt attempt is made to make this Package's interfaces

visible to the end user of the commercial distribution. Such use shall

not be construed as a distribution of this Package.

With or without this clause, the license is

approved by OSI for certifying software as OSI Certified Open Source.

One such example is the Perl Artistic License.

The Artistic License


The intent of this document is to state the conditions under which a

Package may be copied, such that the Copyright Holder maintains some

semblance of artistic control over the development of the package,

while giving the users of the package the right to use and distribute

the Package in a more-or-less customary fashion, plus the right to make

reasonable modifications.


  • "Package" refers to the collection of files distributed by the Copyright Holder, and...ivatives of that collection of files created through textual modification.
  • "Standard Version" refers to such a Package if it has not been modified, or has been modified in accordance with the wishes of the Copyright Holder.
  • "Copyright Holder" is whoever is named in the copyright or copyrights for the package.
  • "You" is you, if you're thinking about copying or distributing this Package.
  • "Reasonable copying fee" is whatever you can justify on the basis of media cost, duplication charges, time of people involved, and so on. (You will not be required to justify it to the Copyright Holder, but only to the computing community at large as a market that must bear the fee.)
  • "Freely Available" means that no fee is charged for the item itself, though there may be fees involved in handling the item. It also means that recipients of the item may redistribute it under the same conditions they received it.

1. You may make and give away verbatim copies of the source form of the

Standard Version of this Package without restriction, provided that you

duplicate all of the original copyright notices and associated disclaimers.

2. You may apply bug fixes, portability fixes and other modifications

derived from the Public Domain or from the Copyright Holder. A Package

modified in such a way shall still be considered the Standard Version.

3. You may otherwise modify your copy of this Package in any way, provided

that you insert a prominent notice in each changed file stating how and

when you changed that file, and provided that you do at least ONE of the


a) place your modifications in the Public Domain or otherwise make them

Freely Available, such as by posting said modifications to Usenet or

an equivalent medium, or placing the modifications on a major archive

site such as ftp.uu.net, or by allowing the Copyright Holder to include

your modifications in the Standard Version of the Package.

b) use the modified Package only within your corporation or organization.

c) rename any non-standard executables so the names do not conflict

with standard executables, which must also be provided, and provide

a separate manual page for each non-standard executable that clearly

documents how it differs from the Standard Version.

d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.

4. You may distribute the programs of this Package in object code or

executable form, provided that you do at least ONE of the following:

a) distribute a Standard Version of the executables and library files,

together with instructions (in the manual page or equivalent) on where

to get the Standard Version.

b) accompany the distribution with the machine-readable source of

the Package with your modifications.

c) accompany any non-standard executables with their corresponding

Standard Version executables, giving the non-standard executables

non-standard names, and clearly documenting the differences in manual

pages (or equivalent), together with instructions on where to get

the Standard Version.

d) make other distribution arrangements with the Copyright Holder.

5. You may charge a reasonable copying fee for any distribution of this

Package. You may charge any fee you choose for support of this Package.

You may not charge a fee for this Package itself. However,

you may distribute this Package in aggregate with other (possibly

commercial) programs as part of a larger (possibly commercial) software

distribution provided that you do not advertise this Package as a

product of your own.

6. The scripts and library files supplied as input to or produced as

output from the programs of this Package do not automatically fall

under the copyright of this Package, but belong to whomever generated

them, and may be sold commercially, and may be aggregated with this


7. C or perl subroutines supplied by you and linked into this Package

shall not be considered part of this Package.

8. The name of the Copyright Holder may not be used to endorse or promote

products...ived from this software without specific prior written permission.
