This license is obviously Open Source, but Naumen should consider
the Academic Free License 1.2 instead, which serves the same purposes but
also provides the mutual patent defense (sue for patent infringement,
lose your license), which is good for authors, and the warranty of
copyright ownership, which is good for end users.

    that says 'SELL HUNDRED THOUSAND SHARES IBM SHORT' (only 190 bits in
    5-bit Baudot code plus appropriate headers) is as good a legal document
    as any, even sans digital signature." --me
