Installation
In this manual, "User" refers to whoever has access to the Network Camera, and "Administrator"
refers to the person who can configure the Network Camera and grant user access to the camera.
Hardware installation
Connect the power adapter jack to the Network
Camera before plugging in to the power socket. This will
reduce the risk of accidental electric shock.
Please verify you’re your product package contains all the accessories listed in the foregoing
Package Contents. Depending on the user’s application, an Ethernet cable may be needed. The
Ethernet cable should meet the specs of UTP Category 5 and not exceed 100 meters in length.
Upon powering up, the front blue LED will become lighted first and then the device will go through
booting process. During the booting process, both blue and red LEDs will be on and the Network
Camera will standby for getting IP address. After getting IP Address, the LED will blink blue every
second.
The Network Camera will first detect Ethernet. If it does not connect to Ethernet, the Network
Camera will try WLAN. During the searching and connecting process to the wireless access point
or station, the red LED of the Network Camera will flash every second. Until the Network Camera
connects to the other wireless device, the red LED will become lighted. Operating in either
network mode, the blue LED will flash every second as heartbeat to indicate alive.
*WLAN solution for WCS-2030 only
6
To install in Ethernet
Make sure the Ethernet is firmly connected to a switch hub. After attaching the Ethernet cable plug
in the power adapter. If the LED turns out to be steady blue, go to next paragraph “Software
installation”. If the Ethernet is not available, Network Camera will switch to wireless LAN mode.
To install in wireless LAN
If the Ethernet is not available while power on, the Network Camera will search for any access
point with the SSID “default”. Once any access point is found, the LED will turn blue to wait for
installation. If the network environment cannot meet the default settings, install Network Camera
in Ethernet to proceed with wireless LAN configuration.
Software installation
At the end of the hardware installation, users can use Installation Wizard program included in the
product CDROM to find the location of the Network Camera. There may be many Network
Cameras in the local network. Users can differentiate the Network Cameras with the MAC
address. The MAC address is printed on the labels at the back of the Network Camera body.
Once installation is complete, the Administrator should proceed to the next section "Initial
access to the Network Camera" for necessary checks and configurations.
7
Initial Access to the Network Camera
Check Network Settings
The Network Camera can be connected either before or immediately after software installation
onto the Local Area Network. The Administrator should complete the network settings on the
configuration page, including the correct subnet mask and IP address of gateway and DNS. Ask
your network administrator or Internet service provider for the detail information. By default the
Network Camera requires the Administrator to run installation every time it reboots. If the network
settings are to remain unchanged, disable the Install option. Refer to “Network settings” on the
System Configuration page for details. If any setting is entered incorrectly and cannot proceed to
setting up the Network Camera, restore the factory settings following the steps in the
“Troubleshooting” chapter of the Appendix.
Add Password to prevent Unauthorized Access
The default Administrator’s password is blank and the Network Camera initially will not ask for any
password. The Administrator should immediately implement a new password as a matter of
prudent security practice. Once the Administrator’s password is saved, the Network Camera will
ask for the user’s name and password before each access. The Administrator can set up a
maximum of twenty (20) user accounts. Each user can access the Network Camera except to
perform system configuration. Some critical functions are exclusive for the Administrator, such as
system configuration, user administration, and software upgrades. The user name for the
Administrator is permanently assigned as “root”. Once the password is changed, the browser will
display an authentication window to ask for the new password. Once the password is set, there
is no provision to recover the Administrator’s password. The only option is to restore to
the original factory default settings.
8
How to Use
Authentication
After opening the Web browser and typing in the URL of the Network Camera, a dialogue window
pops up to request a username and password. Upon successful authentication, the following
figure is displayed.
The foreground is the login window and the background shows the message if authentication fails.
The user may check the option box to save the password for future convenience. This option is
not available to the Administrator for obvious reason.
9
Installing plug-in
For the initial access to the Network Camera in Windows, the web browser may prompt for
permission to install a new plug-in for the Network Camera. Permission request depends on the
Internet security settings of the user’s PC or notebook. If the highest security level is set, the
computer may prohibit any installation and execution attempt. This plug-in has been registered for
certificate and is used to display the video in the browser. Users may click on
to
proceed. If the web browser does not allow the user to continue to install, check the Internet
security option and lower the security levels or contact your IT or networking supervisor for help.
10
Primary user’s capability

Snapshot
Click on “Snapshot”, web browser will pop up a new window to show the snapshot. Users can
point at the snapshot and click the right button of mouse to save it.
12
Client settings
At the initial access to the “Connection type” page in Windows, the web browser will ask for a new
plug-in installation, the plug-in being the Network Camera. This plug-in has been registered for
certification and can be used to change the parameters at the client’s site. The user may click on
to install the plug-in. If the web browser does not allow the user to complete the
installation, check the Internet security to lower the security level or contact your IT or networking
supervisor.
13
There are two settings for the client side. One is “Media Options” for users to determine the type
of media to be streaming. The other is “Protocol Options” which allows choices on connection
protocol between client and server. There are two protocols choices to optimize your usage –
UDP and TCP.
The UDP protocol allows for more real-time audio and video streams. However, some packets
may be lost due to network burst traffic and images may be obscured.
The TCP protocol allows for less packet loss and produces a more accurate video display. The
downside with this protocol is that the real-time effect is worse than that with the UDP protocol.
If no special need is required, UDP protocol is recommended. Generally speaking, the client’s
choice will be in the order of UDP → TCP.
After the Network Camera is connected successfully,
“Protocol Option” will indicate the selected protocol. The selected protocol will be recorded in the
user's PC and will be used for the next connection. If the network environment is changed, or the
user wants to let the web browser to detect again, manually select the UDP protocol, save, and
return HOME to re-connect.
<url> http://<Network Camera>/client.html
<Network Camera> is the domain name or the original IP address of the Network Camera.

Administrator’s capability
Fine-tuning for Best Performance
Best performance generally equates to the fastest image refresh rate with the best video quality,
and at the lowest network bandwidth as possible. The three factors, “Maximum frame rate”,
“Constant bit rate”, and “Fix quality” on the Audio and Video Configuration page, are correlative to
allow for achieving the best performance possible.
For Viewing by Mobile Phone
Most 3GPP cell phone supports media streaming with MPEG4 video and GSM-AMR audio. Due
to the limitation of the bandwidth for 3GPP, only 176x144 video solution will be supported for cell
phone viewing. Select the “Configure for mobile viewing” option will change the range of other
related video settings.
15
* This feature depends on local telecom system and the model of mobile phone; LevelOne do not guarantee
this feature works in all area.
For Best Real-time Video Images
To achieve good real-time visual effect, the network bandwidth should be large enough to allow a
transmission rate of greater than 20 image frames per second. If the broadband network is over 1
Mbps, set the “Fix bit rate” to 1000Kbps or 1200Kbps, and set “Fix quality” at the highest quality.
The maximum frame rate is 30. If your network bandwidth is more than 512Kbps, you can fix the
bit rate according to your bandwidth and set the maximum frame rate to 30 fps. If the images vary
dramatically in your environment, you may want to slow the maximum frame rate down to 20 fps in
order to lower the rate of data transmission. This allows for better video quality and the human
eyes cannot readily detect the differences between those of 20, 25, or 30 frames per second. If
your network bandwidth is below 512 Kbps, set the “Fix bit rate” according to your bandwidth and
try to get the best performance by fine-tuning with the “Maximum frame rate”. In a slow network,
greater frame rate results in blur images. Another work-around is to choose “160x120” in the
“Size” option for better images. Video quality performance will vary somewhat due to the number
of users viewing on the network; even when the parameters have initially been finely tuned.
Performance will also suffer due to poor connectivity because of the network’s burst constraint.
Only Quality Images Will Do
To have the best video quality, you should set “Fix quality” at “Detailed” or “Excellent” and adjust
the “Maximum frame rate” to match your network’s bandwidth. If your network is slow and you
receive “broken” pictures, go to the TCP protocol in “Connection type” and choose a more
appropriate mode of transmission. The images may suffer a time delay due to a slower connection.
The delay will also increase with added number of users.
Somewhere Between Real-time and Clear Images
If you have a broadband network, set “Fix quality” at ”Normal” or better, rather than setting “Fix bit
rate”. You can also fix the bandwidth according to your actual network speed and adjust the frame
rate. Start from 30 fps down for best results but not below 15 fps. If the image qualities are not
improved, select a lower bandwidth setting.
16
Opening accounts for new users
Protect Network Camera by passwords
The Network Camera is shipped without any password by default. That means everyone can
access the Network Camera including the configuration as long as the IP address is known. It is
necessary to assign a password if the Network Camera is intended to be accessed by others.
Type a new word twice in ○1 to enable protection. This password is used to identify the
administrator. Then add an account with user name and password for your friends in ○2 . Network
Camera can provide twenty accounts for your valuable customers or friends. You may delete
some users from ○3 .

power line frequency that depends on local utility. Change the frequency setting to eliminate
uncomfortable flash image when the light source is only fluorescent light.
There are three dependent parameters provided for video performance adjustment.
“key frame interval”
“Max frame rate” This limits the maximal refresh frame rate, which can be combined with the
“Video quality” to optimize bandwidth utilization and video quality. Choose “Constant bit rate” If
the user wants to fix the bandwidth utilization regardless of the video quality, choose “Fixed
quality” and select the desired bandwidth. The video quality may be poor due to the sending of
maximal frame rate within the limited bandwidth when images are moving rapidly. Consequently,
to ensure detailed video quality (quantization rate) regardless of the network, it will utilize more
bandwidth to send the maximal frames when images change drastically.

“Built-in FTP server port number” This can be other than the default port 21. The user can
change this value from 1025 to 65535. After the changed, the external FTP client program must
change the server port of connection accordingly.
There are two external FTP server can be configured, primary and secondary FTP server, The
network camera will use primary server as default , and use secondary server when primary
server is unreachable.
“Server address” The domain name or the IP address of the external FTP server. The following
user settings must be correctly configured for remote access.
“FTP server port” This can be other than the default port 21. The user can change this value
from 1025 to 65535.
“User name” Granted user name on the external FTP server.
“Password” Granted password on the external FTP server.
“Remote folder name” Granted folder on the external FTP server. The string must conform to
32
that of the external FTP server. Some FTP servers cannot accept preceding slash symbol before
the path without virtual path mapping. Refer to the instructions for the external FTP server for
details. The folder privilege must be open for upload.
<url> http://<Network Camera>/setup/mailftp.html
<Network Camera> is the domain name or original IP address of the Network Camera.
Motion detection
“Enable motion detection” Check this option to turn on motion detection.
Click on this button to add a new window. At most three windows can exist simultaneously.
Use the mouse to click, hold, and drag the window frame to resize or the title bar to move. Clicking
on the ‘x’ at the upper right-hand corner of the window to delete the window. Remember to save in
order to validate the changes.
Click on this button to save the related window settings. A graphic bar will rise or fall
depending on the image variation. A green bar means the image variation is under monitoring
level and a red bar means the image variation is over monitoring level. When the bar goes red, the
detected window will also be outlined in red. Going back to the homepage, the monitored window
is hidden but the red frame shows when motion is detected.
33
"Window Name" The text will show at the top of the window.
“Sensitivity” This sets the endurable difference between two sequential images.
“Percentage” This sets the space ratio of moving objects in the monitoring window. Higher
sensitivity and small percentage will allow easier motion detection.
The following figure shows the screen when
is clicked. The monitoring window has been
outlined in red and the graphic bar goes red since the goldfish is moving.
34
Application settings
The server provides two kinds of applications, snapshot and videoclip. There are two independent
snapshot items to set, and they are named as Snapshot #1 and Snapshot #2. The status,
schedule, trigger condition, and action of three applications are summarized in the application
page. The user can click on Snapshot #1, Snapshot #2 or Video Clip to enter the detail setting
page.
Snapshot
“Enable snapshot” Enable/Disable snapshot application.
Weekly schedule
“Sun” ~ “Sat” Select the days of the week to perform the application.
Select “Always” or input the time interval.
Snapshot file name prefix
The prefix name will be added on the file name of the snapshot images.
35
Send out the snapshot while motion detection
There are three windows for motion detection each can be assigned a name. Select the windows
which need to be monitored. If motion detection has not been set up, “undefined” will be shown
instead of the window title. If this happens, clicking on “Motion detection” and a note will show to
direct the User to the configuration page for motion detection.
“Send pre-event image(s)” The number of pre-snapshots will be captured and send when a
condition is triggered.
“Send post-event image(s)” The number of post-snapshots will be captured and send when a
condition is triggered.
“Delay second(s) before detecting next motion” Set the time delay before restarting to check
on the triggering condition when the current condition is triggered.
Sequential operation
“Snapshot interval (seconds)” Network Camera will send snapshots at the specified intervals to
the external server using the method selected below. Remember: This operation is still subject to
the conditions set in the weekly schedule.
Method for sending snapshot
“Email” This selects the uploading method following the intervals set above. The snapshot
named “prefix-yyyymmdd-hhmmss.jpg” will be attached in the email.
“FTP” The snapshots will be uploaded to the external FTP server with the file name defined in the
next option. This can also be used to refresh the captured images stored in the external web
server to build creative homepages.
“FTP put snapshots with date and time suffix” This option sets up the snapshot capture date
and time, which can be used to easily differentiate the snapshot file names in the sequential
operation. For instance, “prefix-20030102-030405.jpg” means the JPEG image was captured in
the year 2003, January the 2nd, at 3 o’clock, 4 minute, and 5 second. If this suffix is omitted, the file
named “video.jpg” on the external FTP server will be refreshed at the specified interval.
36
37
Video Clip
The setting for video clip is mostly the same as snapshot.
“Video clip max file size” This indicates the maximum file size for video clip (Kbytes).
38
System log
The Network camera support log the system messages on remote server. The protocol is
compliant to RFC 3164. If you have external Linux server with syslogd service, use “-r” option to
turn on the facility for receiving log from remote machine. Or you can use some software on
Windows which is compliant to RFC 3164.
Check “Enable remote log” and input the “IP address” and “port” number of the log server to
enable the remote log facility.
In the “Current log”, it displays the current system log file. The content of the log provides useful
information about configuration and connection after system boot- up.
39
Viewing system parameters
Click on this link on the configuration page to view the entire system’s parameter set. The content
is the same as those in CONFIG.INI.
40
Maintenance
Three actions can be selected
“reboot” click the reboot button to restart system
“factory default” Click on Factory default button on the configuration page to restore the factory
default settings. Any changes made so far will be lost and the system will be reset to the initial
factory settings. The system will restart and require the installer program to set up the network
again.
“upgrade firmware” Select the firmware file and click upgrade button

Reset and restore
42
There is a button in the back of the Network Camera. It is used to
reset the system or restore the factory default settings. Sometimes
resetting the system sets the system back to normal state. If the
system problems remain after reset, restore the factory settings and
install again.
RESET:
Restoring the factory defaults
will erase any previous settings.
Reset or restore the system after
power on.
Click on the button.
RESTORE:
1. Press on the button continuously.
2. Wait for self-diagnostic to run twice.
3. Free the button as soon as the second
self-diagnostic starts.
B. URL commands of the Network Camera
For some customers who already have their own web site or web control application, the
Network Camera can be easily integrated through convenient URLs. This section lists the
commands in URL format corresponding to the basic functions of the erase Network Camera.

GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
Version 2, June 1991
Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but
changing it is not allowed.
Preamble
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it.
By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share
and change free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This General
Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any other
program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is
covered by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your
programs, too.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public
Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free
software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if
you want it, that you can change the soft-ware or use pieces of it in new free programs; and
that you know you can do these things.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights
or to ask you to surrender the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for
you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must
give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or
can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights.
We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license
which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software.
Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone
understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If the software is modified by
someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is not the
original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors'
reputations.
Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the
danger that redistributors of a free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect
making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must
be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all. The precise terms and conditions for
copying, distribution and modification follow.
GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
Terms And Conditions For Copying, Distribution And Modification
0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the
copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of this General Public License.
The "Program", below, refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the
Program" means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say,
a work containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or
translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the
term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you".
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License;
they are outside its scope. The act of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from
the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the Program
(independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on
what the Program does.
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you receive it,
in any medium, provided that you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an
appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the notices that refer to
this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the Program
a copy of this License along with the Program.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your option
offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it, thus forming a work
based on the Program, and copy and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of
Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the
files and the date of any change.
b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is
derived from the Program or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
parties under the terms of this License.
c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run, you must cause it,
when started running for such interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there is no warranty
(or else, saying that you provide a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this License. (Exception: if the
Program itself is interactive but does not normally print such an announcement, your work
based on the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work
are not derived from the Program, and can be reasonably considered independent and
separate works in themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those sections
when you distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same sections as
part of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on
the terms of this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the entire whole,
and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it. Thus, it is not the intent of this
section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is
to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on the
Program.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program with the Program (or
with a work based on the Program) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not
bring the other work under the scope of this License.
3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under Section 2) in object
code or executable form under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do
one of the following:
a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must
be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for
software interchange; or,
b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give any third party, for a
charge no more than your cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be distributed under the terms of
Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to distribute corresponding
source code. (This alternative is allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
received the program in object code or executable form with such an offer, in accord with
Subsection b above.)
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it.
For an executable work, complete source code means all the source code for all modules it
contains, plus any associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control
compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a special exception, the source
code distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed (in either source or
binary form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system
on which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies the executable.
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to copy from a
designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the source code from the same
place counts as distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not compelled to
copy the source along with the object code.
4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as expressly
provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute
the Program is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License. However,
parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their
licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing
else grants you permission to modify or distribute the Program or its derivative works. These
actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or
distributing the Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate your acceptance of
this License to do so, and all its terms and condi-tions for copying, distributing or modifying the
Program or works based on it.
6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program), the recipient
automatically receives a license from the original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the
Program subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions on
the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing
compliance by third parties to this License.
7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other
reason (not limited to patent issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order,
agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not excuse you
from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your
obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent license would not permit
royalty-free redistribution of the Program by all those who receive copies directly or indirectly
through you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to refrain
entirely from distribution of the Program.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular circumstance,
the balance of the section is intended to apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply
in other circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other property right
claims or to contest validity of any such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting
the integrity of the free software distribution system, which is implemented by public license
practices. Many people have made generous contributions to the wide range of software
distributed through that system in reliance on consis-tent application of that system; it is up to
the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing to distribute software through any other system
and a licensee cannot impose that choice.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a consequence of the
rest of this License.
8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain countries either by
patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the original copyright holder who places the Program
under this License may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those
countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded. In
such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the General
Public License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present
version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.
Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program specifies a version
number of this License which applies to it and "any later version", you have the option of
following the terms and condi-tions either of that version or of any later version published by
the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of this
License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.
10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs whose distribution
conditions are different, write to the author to ask for permission. For software which is
copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we
sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals of preserving
the free status of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing and reuse of
software generally.
NO WARRANTY
11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO
WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR
OTHER PARTIES
PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER
EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED
WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS
WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF
ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN
WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY
AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU
FOR DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE
PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING
RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A
FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF
SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH
DAMAGES.
