III. SCOPE OF LICENSE
The following license
terms apply to all Open Publication works, unless otherwise explicitly
stated in the document.
Mere aggregation of
Open Publication works or a portion of an Open Publication work
with other works or programs on the same media shall not cause
this license to apply to those other works. The aggregate work
shall contain a notice specifying the inclusion of the Open Publication
material and appropriate copyright notice.

the remaining portions of the license remain in force.

the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular
purpose or a warranty of non-infringement.
In addition to the
requirements of this license, it is requested from and strongly
recommended of redistributors that:
- If you are distributing Open Publication works on hardcopy or CD-ROM, you provide email notification to the authors of your intent to redistribute at least thirty days before your manuscript or media freeze, to give the authors time to provide updated documents. This notification should describe modifications, if any, made to the document.
- All substantive modifications (including deletions) be either clearly marked up in the document or else described in an attachment to the document.
- Finally, while it is not mandatory under this license, it is considered good form to offer a free copy of any hardcopy and CD-ROM expression of an Open Publication-licensed work to its author(s).
