 +====== The BSD License. ======
  
 +
 +The following is a BSD license template. To generate your own license, change the values of OWNER, ORGANIZATION and YEAR from their original values as given here, and substitute your own.
 +
 +Note: The advertising clause in the license appearing on BSD Unix files was officially rescinded by the Director of the Office of Technology Licensing of the University of California on July 22 1999. He states that clause 3 is "hereby deleted in its entirety."
 +
 +Note the new BSD license is thus equivalent to the MIT License, except for the no-endorsement final clause.
 +
 +OWNER = Regents of the University of California
 +ORGANIZATION = University of California, Berkeley
 +!YEAR = 1998
 +
 +In the original BSD license, both occurrences of the phrase "COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND CONTRIBUTORS" in the disclaimer read "REGENTS AND CONTRIBUTORS".
