Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this
license, but changing it is not allowed. You can also use this wording to
make the terms for other programs.
The license agreements of most software companies keep you at the mercy of
those companies. By contrast, our general public license is intended to give
everyone the right to share NetHack. To make sure that you get the rights we
want you to have, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you

Specifically, we want to make sure that you have the right to give away
copies of NetHack, that you receive source code or else can get it if you
want it, that you can change NetHack or use pieces of it in new free

To make sure that everyone has such rights, we have to forbid you to
deprive anyone else of these rights. For example, if you distribute copies
of NetHack, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You
must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you
must tell them their rights.
Also, for our own protection, we must make certain that everyone finds out
that there is no warranty for NetHack. If NetHack is modified by someone
else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is
not what we distributed.
Therefore we (Mike Stephenson and other holders of NetHack copyrights) make
the following terms which say what you must do to be allowed to distribute or
- You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of NetHack source code as
you receive it, in any medium, provided that you keep intact the notices on
all files that refer to copyrights, to this License Agreement, and to the
absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the NetHack
program a copy of this License Agreement along with the program.
- You may modify your copy or copies of NetHack or any portion of it, and
copy and distribute such modifications under the terms of Paragraph 1 above
(including distributing this License Agreement), provided that you also do the
