        Original Code (or portions thereof).

        (c) the licenses granted in this Section 2.1(a) and (b) are
        effective on the date Initial Developer first distributes
        Original Code under the terms of this License.

        (d) Notwithstanding Section 2.1(b) above, no patent license is
        granted: 1) for code that You delete from the Original Code;
        2) separate from the Original Code; or 3) for infringements
        caused by: i) the modification of the Original Code or ii) the
        combination of the Original Code with other software or devices.

        and/or in combination with its Contributor Version (or portions
        of such combination), to make, use, sell, offer for sale, have

        Contributor Version) or other devices; or 4) under Patent Claims
        infringed by Covered Code in the absence of Modifications made
        by that Contributor.

3. Distribution Obligations.

    3.1 Application of License. The Modifications which You create or to
    which You contribute are governed by the terms of this License,
    including without limitation Section 2.2. The Source Code version of
    Covered Code may be distributed only under the terms of this License
    or a future version of this License released under Section 6.1, and
    You must include a copy of this License with every copy of the
    Source Code You distribute. You may not offer or impose any terms on
    any Source Code version that alters or restricts the applicable
    version of this License or the recipients' rights hereunder.
    However, You may include an additional document offering the
    additional rights described in Section 3.5.

    3.2 Availability of Source Code. Any Modification which You create
    or to which You contribute must be made available in Source Code
    form under the terms of this License either on the same media as an
    Executable version or via an accepted Electronic Distribution
    Mechanism to anyone to whom you made an Executable version
    available; and if made available via Electronic Distribution
    Mechanism, must remain available for at least twelve (12) months
    after the date it initially became available, or at least six (6)
    months after a subsequent version of that particular Modification
    has been made available to such recipients. You are responsible for
    ensuring that the Source Code version remains available even if the
    Electronic Distribution Mechanism is maintained by a third party.

    3.3 Description of Modifications. You must cause all Covered Code to
    which You contribute to contain a file documenting the changes You
    made to create that Covered Code and the date of any change. You
    must include a prominent statement that the Modification is derived,
    directly or indirectly, from Original Code provided by the Initial
    Developer and including the name of the Initial Developer in (a) the
    Source Code, and (b) in any notice in an Executable version or
    related documentation in which You describe the origin or ownership
    of the Covered Code.

    3.4 Intellectual Property Matters.

        (a) Third Party Claims. If Contributor has actual knowledge that
        a license under a third party's intellectual property rights is
        required to exercise the rights granted by such Contributor
        under Sections 2.1 or 2.2, Contributor must include a text file
        with the Source Code distribution titled "LEGAL" which describes
        the claim and the party making the claim in sufficient detail
        that a recipient will know whom to contact. If Contributor
        obtains such knowledge after the Modification is made available
        as described in Section 3.2, Contributor shall promptly modify
        the LEGAL file in all copies Contributor makes available
        thereafter.

        (b) Contributor API's. If Contributor's Modifications include an
        application programming interface and Contributor has actual
        knowledge of patent licenses which are reasonably necessary to
        implement that API, Contributor must also include this
        information in the LEGAL file.

        (c) Representations. Contributor represents that, except as
        disclosed pursuant to Section 3.4(a) above, Contributor believes
        that Contributor's Modifications are Contributor's original
        creation(s) and/or Contributor has sufficient rights to grant
        the rights conveyed by this License.

    3.5 Required Notices. You must duplicate the notice in Exhibit A in
    each file of the Source Code. If it is not possible to put such
    notice in a particular Source Code file due to its structure, then
    You must include such notice in a location (such as a relevant
    directory) where a user would be most likely to look for such a
    notice. If You created one or more Modification(s) You may add your
    name as a Contributor to the notice described in Exhibit A. You must
    also duplicate this License in any documentation for the Source Code
    where You describe recipients' rights or ownership rights relating
    to Covered Code. You may choose to offer, and to charge a fee for,
    warranty, support, indemnity or liability obligations to one or more
    recipients of Covered Code. However, You may do so only on Your own
    behalf, and not on behalf of the Initial Developer or any
    Contributor. You must make it absolutely clear that any such
    warranty, support, indemnity or liability obligation is offered by
    You alone, and You hereby agree to indemnify the Initial Developer
    and every Contributor for any liability (excluding any liability
    arising from intellectual property claims relating to the Covered
    Code) incurred by the Initial Developer or such Contributor as a
    result of warranty, support, indemnity or liability terms You offer.

    3.6 Distribution of Executable Versions. You may distribute Covered
    Code in Executable form only if the requirements of Section 3.1-3.5
    have been met for that Covered Code, and if You include a notice
    stating that the Source Code version of the Covered Code is
    available under the terms of this License, including a description
    of how and where You have fulfilled the obligation of Section 3.2.
    The notice must be conspicuously included in any notice in an
    Executable version, related documentation or collateral in which You
    describe recipients' rights relating to the Covered Code. You may
    distribute the Executable version of Covered Code or ownership
    rights under a license of Your choice, which may contain terms
    different from this License, provided that You are in compliance
    with the terms of this License and that the license for the
    Executable version does not attempt to limit or alter the
    recipient's rights in the Source Code version from the rights set
    forth in this License. If You distribute the Executable version
    under a different license You must make it absolutely clear that any
    terms which differ from this License are offered by You alone, not
    by the Initial Developer or any Contributor. You hereby agree to
    indemnify the Initial Developer and every Contributor for any
    liability (excluding any liability arising from intellectual
    property claims relating to the Covered Code) incurred by the
    Initial Developer or such Contributor as a result of any such terms
    You offer.

    3.7 Larger Works. You may create a Larger Work by combining Covered
    Code with other code not governed by the terms of this License and
    distribute the Larger Work as a single product. In such a case, You
    must make sure the requirements of this License are fulfilled for
    the Covered Code.

4. Inability to Comply Due to Statute or Regulation. If it is impossible
for You to comply with any of the terms of this License with respect to
some or all of the Covered Code due to statute, judicial order, or
regulation then You must: (a) comply with the terms of this License to
the maximum extent possible; and (b) describe the limitations and the
code they affect. Such description must be included in the LEGAL file
described in Section 3.4 and must be included with all distributions of
the Source Code. Except to the extent prohibited by statute or
regulation, such description must be sufficiently detailed for a
recipient of ordinary skill to be able to understand it.

5. Application of this License. This License applies to code to which
the Initial Developer has attached the notice in Exhibit A and to
related Covered Code.

6. Versions of the License.

    6.1 New Versions. The Storage Networking Industry Association (the
    "SNIA") may publish revised and/or new versions of the License from
    time to time. Each version will be given a distinguishing version
    number.

    6.2 Effect of New Versions. Once Covered Code has been published
    under a particular version of the License, You may always continue
    to use it under the terms of that version. You may also choose to
    use such Covered Code under the terms of any subsequent version of
    the License published by the SNIA. No one other than the SNIA has
    the right to modify the terms applicable to Covered Code created
    under this License.

    6.3 Derivative Works. If You create or use a modified version of
    this License (which you may only do in order to apply it to code
    which is not already Covered Code governed by this License), You
    must (a) rename Your license so that the phrases "Storage Networking
    Industry Association," "SNIA," or any confusingly similar phrase do
    not appear in your license (except to note that your license differs
    from this License) and (b) otherwise make it clear that Your version
    of the license contains terms which differ from the SNIA Public
    License. (Filling in the name of the Initial Developer, Original
    Code or Contributor in the notice described in Exhibit A shall not
    of themselves be deemed to be modifications of this License.)

7. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY. COVERED CODE IS PROVIDED UNDER THIS LICENSE
ON AN "AS IS" BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR
IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES THAT THE COVERED CODE
IS FREE OF DEFECTS, MERCHANTABLE, FIT FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OR
NON-INFRINGING. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE
COVERED CODE IS WITH YOU. SHOULD ANY COVERED CODE PROVE DEFECTIVE IN ANY
RESPECT, YOU (NOT THE INITIAL DEVELOPER OR ANY OTHER CONTRIBUTOR) ASSUME
THE COST OF ANY NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION. THIS
DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY CONSTITUTES AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THIS LICENSE. NO
USE OF ANY COVERED CODE IS AUTHORIZED HEREUNDER EXCEPT UNDER THIS
DISCLAIMER.

8. TERMINATION. 

    8.1 This License and the rights granted hereunder will terminate
    automatically if You fail to comply with terms herein and fail to
    cure such breach within a reasonable time after becoming aware of
    the breach. All sublicenses to the Covered Code which are properly
    granted shall survive any termination of this License. Provisions
    which, by their nature, must remain in effect beyond the termination
    of this License shall survive.

    8.2 If You initiate litigation by asserting a patent infringement
    claim (excluding declaratory judgment actions) against Initial
    Developer or a Contributor (the Initial Developer or Contributor
    against whom You file such action is referred to as "Participant")
    alleging that:

        (a) such Participant's Contributor Version directly or
        indirectly infringes any patent, then any and all rights granted
        by such Participant to You under Sections 2.1 and/or 2.2 of this
        License shall, upon 60 days notice from Participant terminate
        prospectively, unless if within 60 days after receipt of notice
        You either: (i) agree in writing to pay Participant a mutually
        agreeable reasonable royalty for Your past and future use of
        Modifications made by such Participant, or (ii) withdraw Your
        litigation claim with respect to the Contributor Version against
        such Participant. If within 60 days of notice, a reasonable
        royalty and payment arrangement are not mutually agreed upon in
        writing by the parties or the litigation claim is not withdrawn,
        the rights granted by Participant to You under Sections 2.1
        and/or 2.2 automatically terminate at the expiration of the 60
        day notice period specified above.

    8.3 If You assert a patent infringement claim against Participant
    alleging that such Participant's Contributor Version directly or
    indirectly infringes any patent where such claim is resolved (such
    as by license or settlement) prior to the initiation of patent
    infringement litigation, then the reasonable value of the licenses
    granted by such Participant under Sections 2.1 or 2.2 shall be taken
    into account in determining the amount or value of any payment or
    license.

    8.4 In the event of termination under Sections 8.1 or 8.2 above, all
    end user license agreements (excluding distributors and resellers)
    which have been validly granted by You or any distributor hereunder
    prior to termination shall survive termination.

9. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES AND UNDER NO LEGAL
THEORY, WHETHER TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), CONTRACT, OR OTHERWISE,
SHALL YOU, THE INITIAL DEVELOPER, ANY OTHER CONTRIBUTOR, OR ANY
DISTRIBUTOR OF COVERED CODE, OR ANY SUPPLIER OF ANY OF SUCH PARTIES, BE
LIABLE TO ANY PERSON FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY CHARACTER INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION,
DAMAGES FOR LOSS OF GOODWILL, WORK STOPPAGE, COMPUTER FAILURE OR
MALFUNCTION, OR ANY AND ALL OTHER COMMERCIAL DAMAGES OR LOSSES, EVEN IF
SUCH PARTY SHALL HAVE BEEN INFORMED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY SHALL NOT APPLY TO LIABILITY FOR DEATH OR
PERSONAL INJURY RESULTING FROM SUCH PARTY'S NEGLIGENCE TO THE EXTENT
APPLICABLE LAW PROHIBITS SUCH LIMITATION. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT
ALLOW THE EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL
DAMAGES, SO THIS EXCLUSION AND LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU.

10. U.S. GOVERNMENT END USERS. The Covered Code is a "commercial item,"
as that term is defined in 48 C.F.R. 2.101 (Oct. 1995), consisting of
"commercial computer software" and "commercial computer software
documentation," as such terms are used in 48 C.F.R. 12.212 (Sept. 1995).
Consistent with 48 C.F.R. 12.212 and 48 C.F.R. 227.7202-1 through
227.7202-4 (June 1995), all U.S. Government End Users acquire Covered
Code with only those rights set forth herein.

11. MISCELLANEOUS This License represents the complete agreement
concerning subject matter hereof. If any provision of this License is
held to be unenforceable, such provision shall be reformed only to the
extent necessary to make it enforceable. This License shall be governed
by California law provisions (except to the extent applicable law, if
any, provides otherwise), excluding its conflict-of-law provisions. The
application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the
International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. Any law or regulation
which provides that the language of a contract shall be construed
against the drafter shall not apply to this License.

12. RESPONSIBILITY FOR CLAIMS. As between Initial Developer and the
Contributors, each party is responsible for claims and damages arising,
directly or indirectly, out of its utilization of rights under this
License and You agree to work with Initial Developer and Contributors to
distribute such responsibility on an equitable basis. Nothing herein is
intended or shall be deemed to constitute any admission of liability.

13. MULTIPLE-LICENSED CODE. Initial Developer may designate portions of
the Covered Code as "Multiple-Licensed". "Multiple-Licensed" means that
the Initial Developer permits you to utilize portions of the Covered
Code under Your choice of this License or the alternative licenses, if
any, specified by the Initial Developer in the file described in
Exhibit A.

14. ACCEPTANCE. This License is accepted by You if You retain, use, or
distribute the Covered Code for any purpose.
