A large portion of the dictionary entries originate from ICOT Free Software. The
following conditions for ICOT Free Software applies to the current dictionary as

Each User may also freely distribute the Program, whether in its original form
or modified, to any third party or parties, PROVIDED that the provisions of
Section 3 ("NO WARRANTY") will ALWAYS appear on, or be attached to, the Program,
which is distributed substantially in the same form as set out herein and that
such intended distribution, if actually made, will neither violate or otherwise
contravene any of the laws and regulations of the countries having jurisdiction
over the User or the intended distribution itself.


The program was produced on an experimental basis in the course of the research
and development conducted during the project and is provided to users as so
produced on an experimental basis. Accordingly, the program is provided without
any warranty whatsoever, whether express, implied, statutory or otherwise. The
term "warranty" used herein includes, but is not limited to, any warranty of the
quality, performance, merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose of
the program and the nonexistence of any infringement or violation of any right
of any third party.

Each user of the program will agree and understand, and be deemed to have agreed
and understood, that there is no warranty whatsoever for the program and,
accordingly, the entire risk arising from or otherwise connected with the
program is assumed by the user.

Therefore, neither ICOT, the copyright holder, or any other organization that
participated in or was otherwise related to the development of the program and
their respective officials, directors, officers and other employees shall be
held liable for any and all damages, including, without limitation, general,
special, incidental and consequential damages, arising out of or otherwise in
connection with the use or inability to use the program or any product, material
or result produced or otherwise obtained by using the program, regardless of
whether they have been advised of, or otherwise had knowledge of, the
possibility of such damages at any time during the project or thereafter. Each
user will be deemed to have agreed to the foregoing by his or her commencement
of use of the program. The term "use" as used herein includes, but is not
limited to, the use, modification, copying and distribution of the program and
the production of secondary products from the program.

In the case where the program, whether in its original form or modified, was
distributed or delivered to or received by a user from any person, organization
or entity other than ICOT, unless it makes or grants independently of ICOT any
specific warranty to the user in writing, such person, organization or entity,
will also be exempted from and not be held liable to the user for any such
damages as noted above as far as the program is concerned. 


Thank you!
