         COPYRIGHT NOTICE AND LICENSE CONDITIONS

Copyright Italian  National  Institute  for  Nuclear  Physics
(INFN) and European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN),
1989-2014.    All rights  not  expressly  granted  under this
license are reserved.   Requests  for permissions not granted
under this license shall be addressed to the FLUKA Collabora-
tion Committee, through fcc@fluka.org.     Any permission may
only be granted in writing.          This software results in
particular from  work  performed  by  Alberto Fassò,  Alfredo
Ferrari,  Johannes Ranft,  Paola Sala  (the "Authors"),   and
their collaborators (the "Collaborators").  INFN and CERN are
the exclusive source of distribution of the code,  bug  fixes
and documentation of the FLUKA software (FLUKA website),  and
may authorise distribution by mirror sites.      This license
cancels and replaces any prior license conditions  but  their
warranty and liability provisions shall continue to  apply to
any use  or  modifications  made  under  such  prior  license
conditions.

DEFINITIONS

The FLUKA  software  ("FLUKA")  means  the  fully  integrated
particle  physics  Monte Carlo  simulation  software  package
being developed since 1989, available from the official FLUKA
website  (http://www.fluka.org)  and authorised mirror sites.
FLUKA is made up of FLUKA core code and FLUKA User Routines.

The FLUKA Copyright Holders means both CERN and INFN.

FLUKA User Routines means the set of subroutines collected in
the usermvax  section  of  FLUKA  and  forming  part  of  the
standard distribution of FLUKA.

The Licensee  means  any  person acting individually within a
non-profit organisation, exercising any permission granted by
this license.

LICENSE GRANT

1.
Subject to the  terms  and  conditions  of this license,  the
FLUKA  Copyright  Holders  herewith  grant to the  Licensee a
worldwide,  non-exclusive,  royalty-free,  source  and object
code  license  to  use  and  reproduce   FLUKA  for  internal
scientific non commercial non-military purposes only. 
Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Licensee shall not execute
FLUKA in a manner that produces an output whose contents  are
directly useable or easily employable to simulate the physics
models embedded within FLUKA in a generic manner,  or  excise
portions of  FLUKA source or object code,  and  execute  them
independently of FLUKA.  Extracting specific isolated results
from any of the individual internal  physics  models embedded
within FLUKA is not permitted. Permitted use and reproduction
are referred to below as "Use".

2.
Modification (including translation)  of  FLUKA,  in whole or
in part,  is not permitted,  except for modification of FLUKA
User  Routines that do not  circumvent,  replace,  add to  or
modify any of the functions of the FLUKA core code. Permitted
modifications are referred to below as "Modifications".

3.
FLUKA is  licensed for  Use by the  Licensee  only,  and  the
Licensee shall not market,  distribute,  transfer, license or
sub-license, or in any way make available  ("Make Available")
FLUKA  or  Modifications,  in  whole  or  in  part,  to third
parties, without prior written permission. The Licensee shall
not assign or transfer this license.

4.
Notwithstanding section 3,  the Licensee may  Make  Available
his Modifications  of  FLUKA User Routines  to third  parties
under these license conditions.

5.
The  Licensee  shall  not insert FLUKA code or Modifications,
in whole or  in  part, into other codes without prior written
permission.

6.
Any use of FLUKA outside the scope of this license is subject
to prior written permission.


GRANT BACK

7.
The   Licensee   shall   in  a  timely   fashion   notify  to
fcc@fluka.org  any  Modifications carried out by him.  Except
for  Authors,  Collaborators,  and  employees  of  the  FLUKA
Copyright Holders, the copyright in whose Modifications shall
automatically be vested in  the FLUKA Copyright Holders,  the
Licensee  herewith  grants  the  FLUKA  Copyright  Holders  a
perpetual,  royalty- free,   irrevocable   and  non-exclusive
license to his Modifications, with no limitation of use.  The
Licensee acknowledges that the  FLUKA  Copyright  Holders may
insert  such  Modifications into future  releases  of  FLUKA,
subject  to  appropriate  acknowledgment  of  the  Licensee's
contribution.

8.
The Licensee  shall report as soon as practical any errors or
bugs found in any portion of FLUKA to fluka-discuss@fluka.org


PUBLICATIONS AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

9.
The Licensee shall explicitly acknowledge his use of FLUKA in
any publication or communication,  scientific  or  otherwise,
relating to such use,  by  citing the FLUKA set of references
(http://www.fluka.org, see below)  and  the  FLUKA  copyright
notice.

10.
The  Licensee  shall ensure that the FLUKA set of references,
the  FLUKA  copyright notice and these license conditions are
not altered or removed from FLUKA and that all embodiments of
FLUKA  and  Modifications  contain  in  full the FLUKA set of
references,  the FLUKA  copyright  notice,  and these license
conditions.

11.
Any insertion of FLUKA code or Modifications,  in whole or in
part,  into other codes with permission under section 5 shall
preserve the  FLUKA set of references,  the  FLUKA  copyright
notice  and  these  license  conditions in the  FLUKA code or
Modifications concerned, and must also reproduce these within
any  additional  global  notices included  along  or embedded
within  the  software  into  which  the  FLUKA  code  or  the
Modifications have been integrated, in whole or in part.  Any
part of  the FLUKA code  or  Modifications so  inserted shall
continue to be subject to these license conditions.

12.
Publication   of  any  results  of  comparisons  of  specific
internal physics models  extracted from FLUKA with permission
under  section 6  with  data or with other codes or models is
subject to prior written permission.

13.
Contributions  to  any formal code comparisons and validation
exercises pertaining to FLUKA, sponsored by recognised bodies
or   within  the  framework  of  recognised  conferences  and
workshops, are subject to prior written permission.

with immediate effect from the date on which a new version of
FLUKA  becomes  available.  In either case sections 14 and 15
above shall  continue  to apply to any  Use  or Modifications
made under these license conditions.
