I think you need a warranty disclaimer.
Here is the shortest free software license with warranty disclaimer
that I have seen in existing use:
Permission granted to use, copy, modify, distribute and sell so long
as the above copyright and this permission statement are retained in
all copies. THERE IS NO WARRANTY - USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
That is from Scott E. Lee's excellent sdncal library which allows
computing calendar day numbers for gregorian, julian, jewish, etc.
The copyright notice that the license refers to is simply:
Copyright 1993-1995, Scott E. Lee, all rights reserved.
The question I have about the above SDNCAL license is if it requires
the notice embedded within a binary. Does anyone have an opinion
on that? In other words, does the law treat a compiled version as
a copy or a modified version?
