Features
The main features of this printer are described below.
Realizing High Productivity
High-speed printing
The speed of the print head and paper feed have been increased for faster printing.
The printer is equipped with a high-speed rotary cutter for quick cutting, significantly
increasing productivity.
Improved operability with an easy to see and use color screen
Designed for intuitive operation, the large, brightly-lit, color LCD display is easy to
understand and easy to use.
The large display offers detailed, easy-to-understand error messages and illustrated
guides to loading paper.
See “LCD Screen” on page 15.
Checking current operating status even from afar thanks to an alert lamp
Errors are immediately obvious even at a distance, thanks to the large, highly visible alert
lamp. This helps prevent any wasted time when printing has stopped due to running out of
ink or paper.
High-capacity ink tanks included
The printer includes high-capacity ink tanks for high productivity. We also offer 1000 ml
high-capacity ink packs for ink refill. This eliminates the need for frequent troublesome ink
cartridge replacements.
Ease-of-Use
Spindle-free roll paper adapter makes loading roll paper a snap
The lack of a spindle makes it possible to load and remove roll paper even in environments
where space is at a premium.
To load roll paper, simply place it on the roll rest and attach roll paper adapters to both
ends.
See “Loading Roll Paper” on page 27.
Introduction
18
Easy maintenance
Roll paper and all replacements, including ink refills, maintenance boxes, and cutter, are
installed from the front, allowing the printer to be placed against a wall. The printer does not
have to be moved to allow rear access.
Notes on Usage and Storage

Notes When Using the Printer
Note the following points when using this printer to avoid breakdowns, malfunctions, and
print quality decline.
O
When using the printer, observe the operating temperature and humidity range
described in the “Specifications Table”. See “Specifications Table” on page 96.
Even when the conditions above are met, you may not be able to print properly if the
environmental conditions are not suitable for the paper. Be sure to use the printer in an
environment where the paper’s requirements are met. For more details, see the
documentation supplied with the paper.
Also, when operating in dry areas, air conditioned environment, or under direct sunlight,
maintain the appropriate humidity.
O
Do not install the printer next to heat sources or directly in the path of air from a
ventilator or air conditioner. Failure to observe this precaution could result in the print
head nozzles drying and clogging.
O
The print head may not be capped (i.e., may not move to the right side) if an error
occurs and the printer is turned off without first resolving the error. Capping is a function
for automatically covering the print head with a cap (lid) to prevent the print head from
drying out. In this case, turn on the power and wait a while until capping is performed
automatically.
O
When the power is on, do not remove the power plug or cut the power at the breaker.
The print head may not be capped properly. In this case, turn on the power and wait a
while until capping is performed automatically.
O
Even when the printer is not in use, some ink will be consumed by head cleaning and
other maintenance operations needed to keep the print head in good condition.
Notes When Not Using the Printer
If you are not using it, note the following points when storing the printer. If it is not stored
correctly, you may not be able to print properly the next time it is used.
O
If you do not print for a long time, the print head nozzles may become clogged. Turn the
printer on at least once every two weeks to prevent the print head from clogging.
When the printer is turned on, head cleaning is performed automatically. Do not turn the
printer off until cleaning is complete.
Leaving the printer for too long without turning it on may result in a malfunction. Repair
work for such malfunction will be charged.
Introduction
20
O
If you will not be using the printer for more than 2 weeks, maintenance must be
performed by a service engineer before and after this period. This maintenance work
will be charged.
Note that even if proper maintenance has been done before leaving the printer for a
long time, repair may be necessary when doing maintenance for reusing the printer,
depending on the period and conditions of storage. In such a case, the repair work will
also be charged.
O
The roller may leave an impression on paper that is left in the printer. This can also
cause wavy or curled paper resulting in paper feeding problems, or the print head could
be scratched. Remove any paper when storing or not using the printer.
O
Store the printer after confirming that the print head has been capped (the print head is
positioned at the far right). If the print head is left uncapped for a long time, the print
quality may decline.
Note:
If the print head is not capped, turn the printer on, and then turn it off.
O
To prevent the accumulation of dust and other foreign matter in the printer, close all
covers before placing it in storage.
If the printer will be not be used for an extended period, protect it with an anti-static cloth
or other cover.
The print head nozzles are very small, and they can become clogged easily if fine dust
gets on the print head, and you may not be able to print properly.
O
When turned on after an extended period of disuse, the printer may automatically
perform head cleaning to ensure print quality.
Head cleaning will end after about 10 to 15 minutes.
Notes on Handling Ink Packs and Ink Tanks
Note the following points when handling ink packs and ink tanks.
O
Do not remove the ink tanks.
Ink tanks are calibrated when installed. Removing them can harm quality and
functionality.
O
Store ink packs at room temperature out of direct sunlight.
Introduction
21
O
To ensure print quality, use all the ink in the ink pack before one of the following
(whichever comes first):
The date printed on the ink pack
25 days from the day that the ink tank was refilled from the ink pack
O
If the ink pack has been stored in a cold location for a long period of time, keep at room
temperature for at least 4 hours before using.
O
When refilling the ink in an ink tank, be sure to use all the ink in the ink pack at once.
O
Refill the ink tank as soon as possible after opening the ink pack.
O
Do not place any objects on top of the ink tanks.
Notes on Handling Paper
Note the following points when handling and storing the paper. If the paper is not in good
condition, print quality may decline.
Check the documentation supplied with each paper.
O
Do not fold the paper or scratch the surface of the paper.
O
Avoid touching the printable surface of the paper with your bare hands. Moisture and
oils from your hands can affect print quality.
O
Handle paper by the edges. We recommend wearing cotton gloves.
O
Do not wet the paper.
O
Avoid locations that are subject to direct sunlight, excessive heat, or humidity.
O
Remove roll paper that is not in use from the printer. Rewind it correctly and then store
it in the original packaging that came with the roll paper. If you leave the roll paper in the
printer for a long time, its quality may decline.
Notes on handling prints
To maintain long lasting, high quality print results, note the following points.
O
Do not rub or scratch the printed surface. If they are rubbed or scratched, the ink may
peel off.
Introduction
22
O
Do not touch the printed surface; failure to observe this precaution may cause ink to rub
off.
O
Make sure the printouts are completely dry before folding of stacking; otherwise, the
color may change where they touch (leaves a mark). These marks will disappear if they
are separated immediately and dried; however, they will remain if not separated.
O
Avoid direct sunlight.
Note:
Typically, printouts fade over time (color distortion) due to the effects of light and various
constituents in the air. But if care is taken in how these items are stored, you can help reduce
discoloration.
The colors of printed materials appear different under different lighting conditions (light
sources*). The colors of printouts from this printer may also appear different under different light
sources.
* Light sources include sunlight, fluorescent light, incandescent light, and other types.

Turning Off the Power Using Power Off Timer
The printer offers the following two power management options:
O
Sleep mode
The printer enters sleep mode when there are no errors, no print jobs being received,
and no control panel or other operations performed. When the printer enters sleep
mode, the control panel’s screen turns off and the internal motors and other parts
switch off to consume less power.
Press the P button to exit sleep mode and return to the normal running state. The delay
before the printer enters sleep mode can be selected from values between 5 and 240
minutes. At default settings, the printer enters sleep mode if no operations are
performed for 15 minutes. The delay can be changed from the Setup menu (see “Setup
Menu” on page 56).
Note:
When the printer enters sleep mode, the control panel’s screen goes blank as if the power
has been turned off, but the P light remains lit.
O
Power Off Timer
The printer is equipped with a Power Off Timer option that automatically turns the
printer off if no errors occur, no print jobs are received, and no control panel or other
operations are performed for a set period of time. The delay before the printer turns off
automatically can be selected from values between 1 and 24 hours in increments of 1
hour.
Basic Operations
46
At default settings, the printer turns off automatically if no errors occur, no print jobs are
received, and no control panel or other operations are performed for eight hours. Power
Off Timer settings can be adjusted from the Setup menu (see “Setup Menu” on page

Maintenance
Adjusting the Print Head
You need to adjust the print head if white lines appear in your printouts or if you notice the
print quality has declined. You can perform the following printer maintenance functions for
maintaining the print head in good condition to ensure the best print quality.
Carry out appropriate maintenance depending on the print results and situation.
Checking for clogged nozzles
Perform a nozzle check to check for clogs if the printer has not been used for an extended
period or before important print jobs. Visually inspect the printed check pattern and clean
the print head if you notice faint or missing areas.
Cleaning the print head
Clean the print head if you notice faint or missing areas in printed documents. Cleans the
surface of the print head to improve the print quality. Choose normal or power cleaning
according to the level of cleaning required.
See “Cleaning the Print Head” on page 64.
Normal cleaning is recommended in most circumstances. Use power cleaning if the
nozzles remain clogged after normal cleaning has been performed several times.
Adjusting the print head position (Print head alignment)
Perform Head Alignment if lines are misaligned or print results are grainy. The Head
Alignment function corrects print misalignments.
See “Minimizing Print Misalignments (Head Alignment)” on page 65.

Cleaning the Print Head
You can clean all nozzles or select for cleaning only those nozzles for which the printed
nozzle check pattern indicates a problem.
Notes on head cleaning
Note the following points when performing head cleaning.
O
Clean the print head only if print quality declines; for example, if the printout is blurry or
the color is incorrect or missing. Ink is consumed when head cleaning is performed.
O
Cleaning all nozzles consumes some of each color of ink. Even if you are using only
black inks for black and white printing, color inks are also consumed.
O
When repeating head cleaning in a short time period, the maintenance box may fill up
quickly due to a small amount of ink evaporation in the maintenance box. Prepare a
spare maintenance box if there is not enough empty space in the box.
O
If the nozzles are still clogged after performing head cleaning, turn off the printer and
leave it overnight or longer. When left for some time, the clogged ink may dissolve.
If the nozzles are still clogged, contact your dealer or Epson Support.

Minimizing Print Misalignments (Head Alignment)
Because there is a small distance between the print head and paper, misalignment may
occur due to humidity or temperature, the inertial force of the print head’s movements, or
by moving the print head bidirectionally. This may result in grainy prints or lines that are
incorrectly placed. When this happens, perform Head Alignment to correct the print
misalignment.
For head alignment, you need to check the pattern and enter the optimum adjustment
value for alignment.
Printing the pattern for manual head alignment takes from 7 to 11 minutes. The time
required varies with the size of the pattern printed.
You can select between Uni-D and Bi-D head alignment. Bi-D is recommended in most
circumstances. Choose Uni-D if Bi-D head alignment does not completely fix the problem.

Replacing and Refilling Consumables
Time Period for Chip Unit Replacements and Ink Refills
If the message Chip unit expended. is displayed on the control panel, this means that the
chip unit needs to be replaced soon. Obtain an ink pack of the appropriate color as soon
as possible.
You will be unable to print if the chip unit for even one color needs to be replaced. If the
Chip unit expended. message is displayed during a print job, you can replace the chip unit
and refill the ink while printing continues.
See “Options and Consumable Products” on page 93.
Important:
This printer has a remaining ink warning system. Use the following procedure to replace the chip
unit and refill the ink correctly.
After the service engineer attaches the ink tanks, replace the chip unit and refill the ink when
remaining ink is about 2.8 inches (70 mm) from the bottom of the ink tank.
This system does not directly detect the amount of ink remaining in the ink tank. Instead, the
amount of ink remaining is estimated based on the ink usage conditions and displayed as a
message. To maintain the accuracy of this system, you must replace the chip unit and refill the
ink as soon as possible once the remaining ink is 2.8 inches (70 mm) or less from the bottom of
the ink tank.
Maintenance
67
Procedure for Chip Unit Replacement and Ink Refills
You can use the same procedure to replace chip units for all colors.
Caution:
O Store ink packs in a location out of reach of children.
O
Wear protective eyewear and gloves when refilling ink.
O
Be sure to read the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) before using ink packs. You can
download it at your local Epson Web site.
O
Should ink contact your skin or enter your eyes or mouth, immediately take the following
actions:
O
If fluid adheres to your skin, immediately wash it off using large volumes of soapy water.
Consult a physician if the skin appears irritated or is discolored.
❏ If fluid enters your eyes, rinse immediately with water. Failure to observe this precaution
could result in bloodshot eyes or mild inflammation. If problems persist, consult with a
physician.
❏ If swallowed, induce vomiting immediately and consult with a physician as soon as
possible.
O
Note the following points when refilling ink.
❏ Gently cut or tear off the ink pack spout opening.
❏ If you cut the ink pack spout too quickly, ink may splatter.
❏ Do not squeeze open ink packs. Ink may spill.
❏ Gently tilt the ink pack when pouring ink into the ink tank.

1. If the message Chip unit expended. is displayed on the control panel screen, check
the remaining ink in the ink tank via the scale on the ink pack.
If the remaining ink level is greater than 2.8 inches (70 mm) from the base of the
ink tank:
We recommend continuing to use the printer until the remaining ink level is 2.8 inches
(70 mm) from the base of the ink tank so that you can use all the ink in a new ink pack
to refill the ink tank.
If the remaining ink level is 2.8 inches (70 mm) or less:
Proceed to Step 2.
Important:
When the remaining ink is 2.8 inches (70 mm) or more from the bottom of the ink tank and
you see a message stating Refill Ink Tank, it is time to replace the ink tank. We
recommend replacing the ink tank at this time. Replacements and repairs will be provided
for a fee.
During replacements and repairs, the ink in the tank is discarded. This is necessary
because fine dirt, dust, and other substances in the ink tank cause the ink tank to
malfunction.
The ink tank replacement interval depends on the usage environment and conditions.
For assistance, contact Epson Support. See “Where To Get Help” on page 97.

2. Permitted Uses; Conditions & Restrictions. Subject to the terms and conditions of this
License, Apple hereby grants You, effective on the date You accept this License and
download the Original Code, a world-wide, royalty-free, non-exclusive license, to the extent
of Apple's Applicable Patent Rights and copyrights covering the Original Code, to do the
following:
2.1 Unmodified Code. You may use, reproduce, display, perform, internally distribute
within Your organization, and Externally Deploy verbatim, unmodified copies of the Original
Code, for commercial or non-commercial purposes, provided that in each instance:
(a) You must retain and reproduce in all copies of Original Code the copyright and other
proprietary notices and disclaimers of Apple as they appear in the Original Code, and keep
intact all notices in the Original Code that refer to this License; and
(b) You must include a copy of this License with every copy of Source Code of Covered
Code and documentation You distribute or Externally Deploy, and You may not offer or

internally distribute within Your organization, and Externally Deploy Your Modifications and
Covered Code, for commercial or non-commercial purposes, provided that in each

including the license grants set forth in Section 3 below, for as long as you Externally
Deploy the Covered Code or twelve (12) months from the date of initial External
Deployment, whichever is longer. You should preferably distribute the Source Code of
Your Externally Deployed Modifications electronically (e.g. download from a web site).
Software License Terms
105
2.3 Distribution of Executable Versions. In addition, if You Externally Deploy Covered Code
(Original Code and/or Modifications) in object code, executable form only, You must
include a prominent notice, in the code itself as well as in related documentation, stating
that Source Code of the Covered Code is available under the terms of this License with
information on how and where to obtain such Source Code.
2.4 Third Party Rights. You expressly acknowledge and agree that although Apple and
each Contributor grants the licenses to their respective portions of the Covered Code set
forth herein, no assurances are provided by Apple or any Contributor that the Covered
Code does not infringe the patent or other intellectual property rights of any other entity.
Apple and each Contributor disclaim any liability to You for claims brought by any other
entity based on infringement of intellectual property rights or otherwise. As a condition to
exercising the rights and licenses granted hereunder, You hereby assume sole
responsibility to secure any other intellectual property rights needed, if any. For example,
if a third party patent license is required to allow You to distribute the Covered Code, it is
Your responsibility to acquire that license before distributing the Covered Code.
3. Your Grants. In consideration of, and as a condition to, the licenses granted to You
under this License, You hereby grant to any person or entity receiving or distributing
Covered Code under this License a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable
license, under Your Applicable Patent Rights and other intellectual property rights (other
than patent) owned or controlled by You, to use, reproduce, display, perform, modify,
sublicense, distribute and Externally Deploy Your Modifications of the same scope and
extent as Apple's licenses under Sections 2.1 and 2.2 above.
4. Larger Works. You may create a Larger Work by combining Covered Code with other
code not governed by the terms of this License and distribute the Larger Work as a single
product. In each such instance, You must make sure the requirements of this License are
fulfilled for the Covered Code or any portion thereof.
5. Limitations on Patent License. Except as expressly stated in Section 2, no other patent
rights, express or implied, are granted by Apple herein. Modifications and/or Larger Works
may require additional patent licenses from Apple which Apple may grant in its sole
discretion.
6. Additional Terms. You may choose to offer, and to charge a fee for, warranty, support,
indemnity or liability obligations and/or other rights consistent with the scope of the license
granted herein ("Additional Terms") to one or more recipients of Covered Code. However,
You may do so only on Your own behalf and as Your sole responsibility, and not on behalf
of Apple or any Contributor. You must obtain the recipient's agreement that any such
Additional Terms are offered by You alone, and You hereby agree to indemnify, defend
and hold Apple and every Contributor harmless for any liability incurred by or claims
asserted against Apple or such Contributor by reason of any such Additional Terms.
Software License Terms
106

from time to time. Each version will be given a distinguishing version number. Once
Original Code has been published under a particular version of this License, You may
continue to use it under the terms of that version. You may also choose to use such
Original Code under the terms of any subsequent version of this License published by
Apple. No one other than Apple has the right to modify the terms applicable to Covered
Code created under this License.

expressly acknowledge and agree that use of the Covered Code, or any portion thereof, is
at Your sole and entire risk. THE COVERED CODE IS PROVIDED "AS IS" AND
WITHOUT WARRANTY, UPGRADES OR SUPPORT OF ANY KIND AND APPLE AND
APPLE'S LICENSOR(S) (COLLECTIVELY REFERRED TO AS "APPLE" FOR THE
PURPOSES OF SECTIONS 8 AND 9) AND ALL CONTRIBUTORS EXPRESSLY
DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND/OR CONDITIONS, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED,
INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES AND/OR
CONDITIONS OF MERCHANTABILITY, OF SATISFACTORY QUALITY, OF FITNESS
FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OF ACCURACY, OF QUIET ENJOYMENT, AND
NONINFRINGEMENT OF THIRD PARTY RIGHTS. APPLE AND EACH CONTRIBUTOR
DOES NOT WARRANT AGAINST INTERFERENCE WITH YOUR ENJOYMENT OF THE
COVERED CODE, THAT THE FUNCTIONS CONTAINED IN THE COVERED CODE
WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, THAT THE OPERATION OF THE COVERED
CODE WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, OR THAT DEFECTS IN THE
COVERED CODE WILL BE CORRECTED. NO ORAL OR WRITTEN INFORMATION OR
ADVICE GIVEN BY APPLE, AN APPLE AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE OR ANY
CONTRIBUTOR SHALL CREATE A WARRANTY. You acknowledge that the Covered
Code is not intended for use in the operation of nuclear facilities, aircraft navigation,
communication systems, or air traffic control machines in which case the failure of the
Covered Code could lead to death, personal injury, or severe physical or environmental
damage.
9. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. TO THE EXTENT NOT PROHIBITED BY LAW, IN NO
EVENT SHALL APPLE OR ANY CONTRIBUTOR BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL,
SPECIAL, INDIRECT OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR
RELATING TO THIS LICENSE OR YOUR USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE COVERED
CODE, OR ANY PORTION THEREOF, WHETHER UNDER A THEORY OF CONTRACT,
WARRANTY, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), PRODUCTS LIABILITY OR
OTHERWISE, EVEN IF APPLE OR SUCH CONTRIBUTOR HAS BEEN ADVISED OF
THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF
ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY REMEDY. SOME JURISDICTIONS DO NOT ALLOW
THE LIMITATION OF LIABILITY OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES,
SO THIS LIMITATION MAY NOT APPLY TO YOU. In no event shall Apple's total liability
to You for all damages (other than as may be required by applicable law) under this
License exceed the amount of fifty dollars ($50.00).
Software License Terms
107

names "Apple", "Apple Computer", "Mac", "Mac OS", "QuickTime", "QuickTime Streaming
Server" or any other trademarks, service marks, logos or trade names belonging to Apple
(collectively "Apple Marks") or to any trademark, service mark, logo or trade name
belonging to any Contributor. You agree not to use any Apple Marks in or as part of the
name of products derived from the Original Code or to endorse or promote products
derived from the Original Code other than as expressly permitted by and in strict
compliance at all times with Apple's third party trademark usage guidelines which are
posted at http://www.apple.com/legal/guidelinesfor3rdparties.html.
11. Ownership. Subject to the licenses granted under this License, each Contributor
retains all rights, title and interest in and to any Modifications made by such Contributor.
Apple retains all rights, title and interest in and to the Original Code and any Modifications
made by or on behalf of Apple ("Apple Modifications"), and such Apple Modifications will
not be automatically subject to this License. Apple may, at its sole discretion, choose to
license such Apple Modifications under this License, or on different terms from those
contained in this License or may choose not to license them at all.
12. Termination.
12.1 Termination. This License and the rights granted hereunder will terminate:
(a) automatically without notice from Apple if You fail to comply with any term(s) of this
License and fail to cure such breach within 30 days of becoming aware of such breach;
(b) immediately in the event of the circumstances described in Section 13.5(b); or
(c) automatically without notice from Apple if You, at any time during the term of this
License, commence an action for patent infringement against Apple; provided that Apple
did not first commence an action for patent infringement against You in that instance.
12.2 Effect of Termination. Upon termination, You agree to immediately stop any further
use, reproduction, modification, sublicensing and distribution of the Covered Code. All
sublicenses to the Covered Code which have been properly granted prior to termination
shall survive any termination of this License. Provisions which, by their nature, should
remain in effect beyond the termination of this License shall survive, including but not
limited to Sections 3, 5, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12.2 and 13. No party will be liable to any other for
compensation, indemnity or damages of any sort solely as a result of terminating this
License in accordance with its terms, and termination of this License will be without
prejudice to any other right or remedy of any party.
13. Miscellaneous.
Software License Terms
108
13.1 Government End Users. The Covered Code is a "commercial item" as defined in FAR
2.101. Government software and technical data rights in the Covered Code include only
those rights customarily provided to the public as defined in this License. This customary
commercial license in technical data and software is provided in accordance with FAR

(Rights in Commercial Computer Software or Computer Software Documentation).
Accordingly, all U.S. Government End Users acquire Covered Code with only those rights
set forth herein.

partnership, joint venture or any other form of legal association between or among You,
Apple or any Contributor, and You will not represent to the contrary, whether expressly, by
implication, appearance or otherwise.
13.3 Independent Development. Nothing in this License will impair Apple's right to acquire,
license, develop, have others develop for it, market and/or distribute technology or
products that perform the same or similar functions as, or otherwise compete with,
Modifications, Larger Works, technology or products that You may develop, produce,
market or distribute.
13.4 Waiver; Construction. Failure by Apple or any Contributor to enforce any provision of
this License will not be deemed a waiver of future enforcement of that or any other
provision. Any law or regulation which provides that the language of a contract shall be
construed against the drafter will not apply to this License.
13.5 Severability. (a) If for any reason a court of competent jurisdiction finds any provision
of this License, or portion thereof, to be unenforceable, that provision of the License will be
enforced to the maximum extent permissible so as to effect the economic benefits and
intent of the parties, and the remainder of this License will continue in full force and effect.
(b) Notwithstanding the foregoing, if applicable law prohibits or restricts You from fully
and/or specifically complying with Sections 2 and/or 3 or prevents the enforceability of
either of those Sections, this License will immediately terminate and You must immediately
discontinue any use of the Covered Code and destroy all copies of it that are in your
possession or control.
13.6 Dispute Resolution. Any litigation or other dispute resolution between You and Apple
relating to this License shall take place in the Northern District of California, and You and

following restrictions:
1.
Redistributions of source code (in whole or in part) must retain the above copyright notice,

2.
Redistributions in binary form (compiled executables and libraries) must reproduce the above
copyright notice, definition, disclaimer, and this list of conditions in documentation and/or
other materials provided with the distribution. The sole exception to this condition is
redistribution of a standard UnZipSFX binary (including SFXWiz) as part of a self-extracting
archive; that is permitted without inclusion of this license, as long as the normal SFX banner
has not been removed from the binary or disabled.
3.
Altered versions--including, but not limited to, ports to new operating systems, existing ports
with new graphical interfaces, versions with modified or added functionality, and dynamic,
shared, or static library versions not from Info-ZIP--must be plainly marked as such and must not
be misrepresented as being the original source or, if binaries, compiled from the original
source. Such altered versions also must not be misrepresented as being Info-ZIP
releases--including, but not limited to, labeling of the altered versions with the names "Info-ZIP"
(or any variation thereof, including, but not limited to, different capitalizations), "Pocket
UnZip," "WiZ" or "MacZip" without the explicit permission of Info-ZIP. Such altered versions are
further prohibited from misrepresentative use of the Zip-Bugs or Info-ZIP e-mail addresses or the
Info-ZIP URL(s), such as to imply Info-ZIP will provide support for the altered versions.
4.
Info-ZIP retains the right to use the names "Info-ZIP," "Zip," "UnZip," "UnZipSFX," "WiZ," "Pocket
UnZip," "Pocket Zip," and "MacZip" for its own source and binary releases.
