In this clause 4B, whichever of the above licences You choose to apply to a Derivative Work is the "Applicable Licence".

- For any Derivative Work You Distribute or publicly perform, You must take reasonable steps to clearly identify that changes were made to the Work. For example, a translation could be marked "The original work was translated from English to Spanish".

- Except as expressly stated in this Licence or otherwise agreed to by the parties in writing, and to the full extent permitted by applicable law, the Licensor offers the Work "as-is" and makes no representations, warranties or conditions of any kind concerning the Work, express, implied, statutory or otherwise.

Clause 5(a) cannot and is not intended to exclude, restrict or modify these warranties.
6. Limit of Liability
- To the full extent permitted by applicable law, and except for any liability arising from contrary agreement, in no event will the Licensor be liable to You on any legal basis (including without limitation, negligence) for any loss or damage whatsoever, including (without limitation):
- loss of production or operation time, loss, damage or corruption of data or records; or
- loss of anticipated savings, opportunity, revenue, profit or goodwill, or other economic loss; or

Clauses 6(a) and 6(b) cannot and are not intended to apply in circumstances where it is prohibited by law.
This Licence and the rights granted to You under this Licence shall terminate automatically upon any breach by You of the terms of the Licence.

Subject to the above terms, the Licence granted here is perpetual (for the duration of the applicable copyright in the Work). Notwithstanding this, the Licensor reserves the right to release the Work under different licence terms or to stop distributing the Work at any time. However, any such release will not serve to withdraw this Licence (or any other licence that has been granted under the terms of this Licence), and this Licence will continue in full force and effect unless terminated as stated above.
9. Licence Grant to Recipients of the Work from You
Each time You Distribute or publicly perform the Work, a Derivative Work or a Collection the Licensor offers the recipient a licence to the Work on the same terms as are granted to You under this Licence.
If any provision of this Licence is invalid or unenforceable under applicable law, it shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remainder of the terms of this Licence. Without further action by the parties to this agreement, such provision shall be reformed to the minimum extent necessary to make such provision valid and enforceable.
