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

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
