Special Features of Your TV
Your new high-definition widescreen television has
many special features that make it the perfect center of
your home entertainment system, including:
1080p High-Definition LCD Display System
Your Mitsubishi LCD Flat Panel HDTV uses a full 1920
x 1080 LCD panel to create the picture you see on the
screen. All images are displayed at 1080p. The TV uses
new Plush 1080p® 5G digital video processing to convert
lower-resolution signals to 1080p for display.
Smooth120Hz™ Film Motion
Smooth120Hz™ Film Motion makes fast-moving images
appear smoother and more fluid, free from motion blur. It
does this by doubling the traditional progressive scan
frame rate and creates new frames of video between the
traditional frames to create smoother moving images. Smooth120Hz™ Film Motion also smooths film judder
(image vibration) that may be present in film-based
content such as movies.
16:9 Widescreen Picture Format
Enjoy a full theatrical experience in the comfort of your
home. View pictures as film directors intended them.
Digital TV broadcasts, DVDs and newer video game
consoles support this widescreen format.
Integrated HDTV Tuner
Your widescreen Mitsubishi HDTV has an internal HDTV
tuner able to receive both over-the-air HDTV broadcasts (received via an antenna) and non-scrambled
digital cable broadcasts, including non-scrambled
HDTV cable programming.
High-Definition Video Inputs
•
•
Component Video Inputs. Also called Y/Pb/Pr
inputs, these inputs receive standard analog video
formats of 480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i high-definition signals. This provides a high level of flexibility
when connecting DVD players/recorders, cable
boxes, and satellite receivers.
HDMI Inputs. These inputs accept digital 480i,
480p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p video signals plus
bitstream and PCM digital stereo signals. The
HDMI™ inputs can also accept a variety of PC
signals and resolutions. These inputs support
HDMI 1.3 Deep Color (up to 36 bits) and the
x.v.Color extended color gamut.
Used with an adapter, these inputs also accept
compatible digital DVI video signals. HDMI
inputs provide additional high-performance,
high-definition connections for maximum flexibility
in your choice of home theater products. The HDMI
inputs are HDCP copy-protection compatible.
Easy Connect Auto Input Sensing
Easy Connect™ Auto Input Sensing automatically recognizes when you plug in a device and prompts you to
assign a name to it.
Home-Theater Control
HDMI Control
Available for all models. HDMI devices with Consumer
Electronics Control (CEC) capabilities may be compatible
with the TV’s HDMI Control feature. Compatible devices
can receive control signals through the HDMI connection,
allowing the TV’s remote control to operate some functions of these devices.
NetCommand with IR Learning
153 and 249 Series. Your Mitsubishi HDTV offers a new
level of networking that seamlessly integrates selected
older A/V products with new and future digital products. NetCommand® supports IR (infrared) control of products
such as VCRs, DVD players, cable boxes, and satellite receivers. NetCommand can “learn” remote control
signals directly from many devices, allowing you to create
a customized NetCommand-controlled home-theater
system.
Sound Projector
Sound Projector technology uses the TV’s bank of
speakers to create a simulated surround sound effect
by reflecting sound off the room walls.
Internet Video Streaming with VUDU™
249 Series. VUDU offers the largest on-demand HD
movie selection anywhere, featuring full 1080p and 5.1
surround sound. VUDU allows you to enjoy movies with no
store visits, no mailing, no late fees and no subscriptions.

2. TV Connections
Inputs and Outputs, continued
1. ANT (Antenna)
Connect your main antenna or direct cable service (no
cable box) to ANT. The ANT input can receive digital
and analog over-the-air channels from a VHF/UHF
antenna or non-scrambled digital/analog cable source.
2. HDMI™ Inputs (High-Definition
Multimedia Interface)
The HDMI inputs support uncompressed standard and
high-definition digital video formats, PCM digital stereo
audio, and digital 5.1 surround sound. These inputs
are HDCP (High-Bandwidth Digital Copy Protection)
compliant.
Mitsubishi recommends you use category 2 HDMI
cables, also called high-speed HDMI cables, to
connect HDMI 1.3 source devices. High-speed category 2 cables bring you the full benefits of Deep Color
and x.v.Color.
The TV’s HDMI inputs are compatible with many DVI-D
and HDMI computer video signals.
Use the HDMI inputs to connect to CEA-861 HDMI
compliant devices such as a high-definition receiver
or DVD player. These inputs support 480i, 480p, 720p,
1080i, and 1080p video formats.
These HDMI inputs can also accept digital DVI video
signals. To connect a device’s DVI output to the TV’s
HDMI input, use an HDMI-to-DVI adapter or cable plus
analog audio cables. Connect the analog audio cables
to the DVI/PC INPUT AUDIO jacks on the TV to receive
left and right stereo audio from your DVI device.
3. Y Pb Pr (Component Video)
Connect devices with component video outputs to this
jack. Use the adjacent AUDIO R and L jacks if you wish
to send audio to the TV.
4. Video (Composite Video)
Connect a VCR, DVD player, standard satellite receiver,
or other A/V device to the TV. Use the adjacent AUDIO
R and L inputs if you wish to send audio to the TV.
5. AVR AUDIO OUTPUT
Use AVR AUDIO OUTPUT to send analog audio of the
current program to an analog A/V surround sound
receiver or stereo system. Digital audio from digital
channels and HDMI devices is converted to analog
audio by the TV for output on this jack. This is the only
audio connection needed to the TV if using an analog
A/V receiver or stereo system.
Headphones. These jacks can also be used for headphones that accept standard line level audio signals. An adapter may be needed.
6. DIGITAL AUDIO INPUT
This input sends digital surround sound to the TV’s
speaker array from a device, such as a DVD player,
connected to INPUT 2.
7. SUBWOOFER OUTPUT
Connect a powered subwoofer to complement Sound
Projector speaker effects.

HDMI Cable Categories
HDMI cables are available as Category 1 and Category 2
types.
• Category 2 Cables (also called high-speed HDMI
cables). Newer, HDMI 1.3-compliant DVD players,
video games, and set-top boxes require Category 2
cables, suitable for clock frequencies up to 340 MHz
or data rates of up to 10.2 gigabits per second. Use
category 2 cables for high-speed 1080p HD signals
carrying extended color encodings (i.e., 30 or more
bits, also called Deep Color). Category 2 cables are
also suitable for standard HDTV signals.
• Category 1 Cables (also called standard HDMI
cables). Category 1 cables may be unmarked. They
are suitable for standard HDTV 720p, 1080i, and
1080p signals with 8-bit color depth. Use category 1
cables for clock frequencies up to 74.25 MHz or data
rates of up to 2.23 gigabits per second.
This output sends Dolby Digital or PCM digital audio
to your digital A/V surround sound receiver. Incoming analog audio is converted by the TV to PCM digital
audio. If you have a digital A/V receiver, in most cases
this is the only audio connection needed between the
TV and your A/V receiver.
9. DVI/PC AUDIO INPUT

NetCommand IR Control
About NetCommand IR Control
•
•
•
•
NetCommand IR home-theater control is available on 153 and 249 series TVs.
IR emitter cables are available for purchase
from Mitsubishi. Visit www.mitsuparts.com or call
800-553-7278 and request one of the following:
-- 242D483020 (two-ended cable)
-- 299P254020 (four-ended cable).
NetCommand setup is optional.
You can perform NetCommand setup when the TV
first recognizes a device during Auto Input Sensing
or at any convenient time afterward.
•
•
NetCommand operates by sending remote control
signals from the TV to your other devices via the
IR (infrared) emitters, telling the devices to play,
record, change inputs, adjust volume, change channels, or perform other functions. All this is accomplished with the TV’s remote control left in TV mode.
You may wish to use NetCommand IR control to
supplement control of CEC-enabled devices.
Important Note on NetCommand
Be sure to connect the IR emitter cable to the
TV and properly place the emitters so that
NetCommand can control your devices.

More About Using an HDMI Connection
• Audio from devices connected directly to the TV
can be heard from the TV speakers only. To send
audio to the A/V receiver from such devices, use
one of the optional audio connections shown in the
diagram on this page. For example, use an optional
audio connection if you wish to use the A/V receiver
speakers to hear audio from:
-- The ANT input
L
R
-- A game or camcorder connected to the conveAUDIO
nience input (input 3).
• To use NetCommand to supplement HDMI control
of a CEC-enabled A/V receiver, the recommended
setup sequence is:
1. Connect the HDMI cable.
2. Enable HDMI control (New Device Found screen).
3. Connect the secondary digital audio cable, if
desired.
4. Perform NetCommand setup.
If you connect to HDMI after performing
NetCommand setup for the A/V receiver, the
NetCommand setup will be lost.

Appendix B: HDMI Control of CEC Devices
Many new HDMI devices have a feature called Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) or HDMI Control. HDMI Control allows one device, such as the TV, to
control other devices, such as an A/V receiver or disc
player. Use of CEC is optional.
Each manufacturer chooses which CEC functions to
support so it is difficult to predict which devices and
features are compatible with Mitsubishi’s HDMI Control. You may find that CEC functions for a specific device are
limited.
To use HDMI Control, you must enable it in both
the TV and the device.
• In the TV. Enable HDMI control from the New
Device Found screen or from the Inputs > HDMI
Control menu.
• In the Device. Most devices with HDMI CEC compatibility let you turn it on or off in the device menus,
where it is typically listed as “HDMI Control.”
4. If prompted for a name,
highlight the name you want
to assign the device.
5. Highlight On.
7. Highlight EXIT and press ENTER to close the New
Device Found screen.
Note: At any time after completing Auto Input Sensing, you can set the TV’s HDMI control on or off
in the Inputs > HDMI Control menu.
8. 153 or 249 Series. To supplement HDMI control
with NetCommand IR control, see page 55.
Enabling HDMI Control of CEC Devices
To ensure proper detection
• Power on HDMI devices before connecting them to
the TV.
• Connect and set up HDMI devices one at a time.

power-on sequence (boot up). Stop any playback.
Connect the device to one of the TV’s HDMI inputs.
When the TV detects the connection, the New
Device Found screen will appear.
Note: See “If the New Device Found Screen Displays
No HDMI Control Option” on this page if there is
no HDMI Control option.
New Device Found screen with HDMI Control option.
This screen displays only if the device’s HDMI Control is
enabled.
If the New Device Found Screen
Displays No HDMI Control Option
If the New Device Found screen shows no option for
HDMI Control, one of these conditions applies:
• HDMI Control is turned off in the menus of the
new device
Action:
a. Highlight EXIT and press ENTER to close the
New Device Found screen.
b. Display the device’s setup menus and enable
the device’s CEC capabilities.
c. Wait for the TV’s New Device Found screen
to appear again.
d. If the New Device Found screen does not
appear, power off the device. Power on the
device and wait for the New Device Found
screen to display with the HDMI Control
option.
• The device does not have CEC compatibility
Action:
-- Control the device with its own remote
control or program the TV’s remote control to
operate the device.
-- 153 and 249 Series. Use the TV’s
NetCommand IR control (page 55).

Resolving CEC Conflicts
Using HDMI Control
Because each manufacturer selects which CEC functions to support, some devices can conflict with other
devices. If control conflicts arise, you can:
• Turn off TV control of an individual CEC-enabled
device (see below).
• Turn off CEC in the setup menu of one of the
devices.
As an example of using HDMI Control, press PLAY on
the device itself to:
• Power on the TV
• Switch to the device (no need to display the
Activity menu)
• Begin play of the device
Turning Off the TV’s HDMI Control of a CEC Device
Test your equipment with the TV’s remote control to
find additional supported commands. See the table
below for commands that may be available, depending
on the individual device.
1. Press MENU on the TV remote control.

Cleaning Recommendations
General Cleaning Precautions
Normally, light dusting with a dry, non-scratching duster
will keep your TV clean. If cleaning beyond this is
needed, please use the following guidelines:
•
First, turn off the TV and unplug the power cord from
the power outlet.
•
•
Top and Sides of the TV
•
•
Occasionally clean dust build-up from the air-intake
grilles on the back and sides of the TV. Clean using
a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment.
Gently wipe down your TV with a soft, non-abrasive
cloth such as cotton flannel, microfiber, or a clean
cloth diaper, lightly moistened with water. Dry with
a second dry, soft, non-abrasive cloth.
•
•
DO NOT allow liquid to enter the TV through the
ventilation slots or any crevice.
DO NOT use any strong or abrasive cleaners, as
these can scratch the surfaces.
DO NOT use any cleaners containing ammonia,
bleach, alcohol, benzene, or thinners, as these can
dull the surfaces.
DO NOT spray liquids or cleaners directly on the
TV’s surfaces.
DO NOT scrub or rub the TV harshly. Wipe it gently.
Care of the Remote Control
Remote Control Tips
•
•
•
•
•
For oily dirt, add a few drops of mild liquid detergent, such as dishwashing detergent, to the water
used to moisten the cloth. Rinse with a second
cloth moistened only with water. Dry with a third
dry, soft, non-abrasive cloth.
• Glossy Surfaces: Take special care when cleaning
the TV’s glossy surfaces.
-- Always shake or brush the cleaning cloth first to
remove any dirt particles.
-- Wipe the glossy areas gently, without applying
pressure.
-- If necessary, lightly dampen the cloth with
water. Use no chemical or abrasive cleaners.
LCD Screen Cleaning
IMPORTANT
DO NOT apply any type of liquid to the surface of
the TV screen.
•
•
•
Use only a soft, dry cloth to clean the LCD
screen. Do not use any liquids.
Wipe the screen gently with an up and down
motion.
Clean the entire screen evenly, not just sections of
the screen.
•
•
•
•
For longer life, use alkaline batteries.
Do not mix old and new batteries.
Be within 20 feet of the equipment.
Do not press two or more keys at the same time
unless instructed to do so.
Do not allow the unit to get wet or become heated.
Keep the unit out of direct sunlight.
Avoid dropping on hard surfaces.
Do not use harsh chemicals to clean. Use only a
soft, lightly moistened cloth.
Resetting the Remote Control
If TV mode is selected and the TV does not respond
properly, reset the remote control.
1. Press and hold POWER for several seconds until the
mode indicator blinks twice and goes off.
2. Release the POWER key.
3. Press keys 0 0 9 3 5 and the mode indicator will
blink twice when you finish entering the code. When entering the code, pause for a moment
between each key press to ensure it is recognized.
Low-Battery Indicator
If you press a key and the mode indicator blinks five
times, replace the remote control’s batteries.

TV Reset Comparison Guide
You can resolve many common TV problems using the reset
functions described in the following table. See also the
troubleshooting suggestions later in this appendix.
IMPORTANT
Before you change sound or picture settings: If picture
or sound settings seem wrong for a broadcast channel
(a channel from the ANT input, a cable box, or satellite
receiver), first check other channels from the same input
before changing settings. If most other channels from the
same input seem correct, there is likely a problem with the
broadcast rather than with the TV. Use care in this case, as
changes you make to fix problems on individual channels
also affect all other channels on the same input.

Picture
Symptom
Remarks
1.
Picture does not look like a high-definition
picture.
Not all signals are high-definition signals. To receive high-definition programming from your cable or satellite provider, you must
subscribe to the provider’s high-definition service. Some overthe-air broadcasts are in high-definition and can be received with
a high-quality antenna suited to your location.
2.
TV has sound but no picture.
•
•
3.
Picture has become dimmer.
Adjust picture brightness and contrast to maximum levels.
4.
There is a large black or gray rectangle on
the screen.
The TV’s analog closed captioning has been set to “text” mode
in the Captions menu. Turn off because there is no text information being broadcast.
5.
You cannot view a picture when playing a
VHS tape.
Check your VCR’s owner’s guide for further troubleshooting.
6.
VCR or DVD player’s on-screen menus jitter
up and down.
Stop playback. Possible cause: Many VCRs and DVD players
provide on-screen menus at only half-resolution that may
appear to jitter up and down.
7.
When viewing a stopped VCR, white lines
are rolling on the screen.
•
•

8.
A color program appears as a black and
white image, or the colors are dim, or the
screen is black.
The PerfectColor color balance has been incorrectly set. Reset
the PerfectColor balance.
9.
Picture from an HDMI input is noisy (poor
quality).
Upgrade a Category 1 (unmarked) HDMI cable to a Category 2
high-speed HDMI cable.
10. The image from a computer appears distorted when viewed on the TV.
•
•
Check that all video inputs are plugged in firmly.
Press and hold the POWER button on the control panel for
ten seconds to perform System Reset.
Turn off video mute for the VCR.
Begin playing the tape.
Change the VCR input from Line 1 to the VCR antenna input.
Normal TV operation. The TV does not correct distortion in
the picture from a computer because the correction process
may cut off the edges of the image.
The aspect ratio may be wrong for the image. Press MORE
and then 0 (FORMAT) to change.

Check if the MUTE key is on.
The TV’s “Listen to:” setting may be set to SAP (analog program
from the ANT input) but no SAP is being broadcast.
Check that the Speakers option is set to TV to hear sound from
the TV speakers. Possibly sound is being sent to one of the audio
outputs for an A/V receiver or headphones.
If using an A/V receiver, check that the Speakers option is set to AV
Receiver to hear sound from the A/V receiver speakers.
Press and hold the POWER button on the control panel for 10

•
•
Check that DIGITAL AUDIO OUTPUT and/or AVR AUDIO
OUTPUT on TV’s main panel is connected to the A/V receiver.
Without this connection, devices connected only to the TV (and
not the A/V receiver) can be heard only from the TV speakers. Note that this includes the ANT input, a device (such as a
camcorder) connected to the convenience panel, and any other
device sending audio to the TV only.
If using a NetCommand-controlled A/V receiver, NetCommand
may be selecting the wrong A/V receiver audio input. Check the
A/V receiver’s NetCommand setup in the Inputs > AVR menu.
4.
Cannot select an audio-only device; it
does not appear in the Activity menu.
Plug an unused video plug into the Y/VIDEO jack to activate Auto
Input Sensing and make the audio device selectable in the Activity

GNU General Public License
Version 2, June 1991
Copyright (C) 1989, 1991
Free Software Foundation, Inc.
675 Mass Ave, Cambridge, MA 02139, 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 software
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:
Trademark and License Information
91
GNU General Public License, continued
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 conditions 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 consistent 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 conditions 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.
