Following extensive discussion on license-discuss and with the OSI board
about click-wrap and other mechanisms for manifesting assent to
licenses, I have added a new first sentence to section 9 of the Open
Software License.  Only the first sentence is new.

   9) Acceptance and Termination. If You distribute copies of
   the Original Work or a Derivative Work, You must make a
   reasonable effort under the circumstances to obtain the
   express and volitional assent of recipients to the terms
   of this License.  

The rest of this section 9 and the OSL can be found at
