    +                           Version 2.0, January 2004
    +   1. Definitions.
    +      "License" shall mean the terms and conditions for use, reproduction,
    +      and distribution as defined by Sections 1 through 9 of this document.
    +      "Licensor" shall mean the copyright owner or entity authorized by
    +      the copyright owner that is granting the License.
    +      "Legal Entity" shall mean the union of the acting entity and all
    +      other entities that control, are controlled by, or are under common
    +      control with that entity. For the purposes of this definition,
    +      "control" means (i) the power, direct or indirect, to cause the
    +      direction or management of such entity, whether by contract or
    +      otherwise, or (ii) ownership of fifty percent (50%) or more of the
    +      outstanding shares, or (iii) beneficial ownership of such entity.
    +      "You" (or "Your") shall mean an individual or Legal Entity
    +      exercising permissions granted by this License.
    +      "Source" form shall mean the preferred form for making modifications,
    +      including but not limited to software source code, documentation
    +      source, and configuration files.
    +      "Object" form shall mean any form resulting from mechanical
    +      transformation or translation of a Source form, including but
    +      not limited to compiled object code, generated documentation,
    +      and conversions to other media types.
    +      "Work" shall mean the work of authorship, whether in Source or
    +      Object form, made available under the License, as indicated by a
    +      copyright notice that is included in or attached to the work
    +      (an example is provided in the Appendix below).
    +      "Derivative Works" shall mean any work, whether in Source or Object
    +      form, that is based on (or derived from) the Work and for which the
    +      editorial revisions, annotations, elaborations, or other modifications
    +      represent, as a whole, an original work of authorship. For the purposes
    +      of this License, Derivative Works shall not include works that remain
    +      separable from, or merely link (or bind by name) to the interfaces of,
    +      the Work and Derivative Works thereof.
    +      "Contribution" shall mean any work of authorship, including
    +      the original version of the Work and any modifications or additions
    +      to that Work or Derivative Works thereof, that is intentionally
    +      submitted to Licensor for inclusion in the Work by the copyright owner
    +      or by an individual or Legal Entity authorized to submit on behalf of
    +      the copyright owner. For the purposes of this definition, "submitted"
    +      means any form of electronic, verbal, or written communication sent
    +      to the Licensor or its representatives, including but not limited to
    +      communication on electronic mailing lists, source code control systems,
    +      and issue tracking systems that are managed by, or on behalf of, the
    +      Licensor for the purpose of discussing and improving the Work, but
    +      excluding communication that is conspicuously marked or otherwise
    +      designated in writing by the copyright owner as "Not a Contribution."
    +      "Contributor" shall mean Licensor and any individual or Legal Entity
    +      on behalf of whom a Contribution has been received by Licensor and
    +      subsequently incorporated within the Work.
    +   2. Grant of Copyright License. Subject to the terms and conditions of
    +      this License, each Contributor hereby grants to You a perpetual,
    +      worldwide, non-exclusive, no-charge, royalty-free, irrevocable
    +      copyright license to reproduce, prepare Derivative Works of,
    +      publicly display, publicly perform, sublicense, and distribute the
    +      Work and such Derivative Works in Source or Object form.
    +   3. Grant of Patent License. Subject to the terms and conditions of
    +      this License, each Contributor hereby grants to You a perpetual,
    +      worldwide, non-exclusive, no-charge, royalty-free, irrevocable
    +      (except as stated in this section) patent license to make, have made,
    +      use, offer to sell, sell, import, and otherwise transfer the Work,
    +      where such license applies only to those patent claims licensable
    +      by such Contributor that are necessarily infringed by their
    +      Contribution(s) alone or by combination of their Contribution(s)
    +      with the Work to which such Contribution(s) was submitted. If You
    +      institute patent litigation against any entity (including a
    +      cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that the Work
    +      or a Contribution incorporated within the Work constitutes direct
    +      or contributory patent infringement, then any patent licenses
    +      granted to You under this License for that Work shall terminate
    +      as of the date such litigation is filed.
    +   4. Redistribution. You may reproduce and distribute copies of the
    +      Work or Derivative Works thereof in any medium, with or without
    +      modifications, and in Source or Object form, provided that You
    +      meet the following conditions:
    +      (a) You must give any other recipients of the Work or
    +          Derivative Works a copy of this License; and
    +      (b) You must cause any modified files to carry prominent notices
    +          stating that You changed the files; and
    +      (c) You must retain, in the Source form of any Derivative Works
    +          that You distribute, all copyright, patent, trademark, and
    +          attribution notices from the Source form of the Work,
    +          excluding those notices that do not pertain to any part of
    +          the Derivative Works; and
    +      (d) If the Work includes a "NOTICE" text file as part of its
    +          distribution, then any Derivative Works that You distribute must
    +          include a readable copy of the attribution notices contained
    +          within such NOTICE file, excluding those notices that do not
    +          pertain to any part of the Derivative Works, in at least one
    +          of the following places: within a NOTICE text file distributed
    +          as part of the Derivative Works; within the Source form or
    +          documentation, if provided along with the Derivative Works; or,
    +          within a display generated by the Derivative Works, if and
    +          wherever such third-party notices normally appear. The contents
    +          of the NOTICE file are for informational purposes only and
    +          do not modify the License. You may add Your own attribution
    +          notices within Derivative Works that You distribute, alongside
    +          or as an addendum to the NOTICE text from the Work, provided
    +          that such additional attribution notices cannot be construed
    +          as modifying the License.
    +      You may add Your own copyright statement to Your modifications and
    +      may provide additional or different license terms and conditions
    +      for use, reproduction, or distribution of Your modifications, or
    +      for any such Derivative Works as a whole, provided Your use,
    +      reproduction, and distribution of the Work otherwise complies with
    +      the conditions stated in this License.
    +   5. Submission of Contributions. Unless You explicitly state otherwise,
    +      any Contribution intentionally submitted for inclusion in the Work
    +      by You to the Licensor shall be under the terms and conditions of
    +      this License, without any additional terms or conditions.
    +      Notwithstanding the above, nothing herein shall supersede or modify
    +      the terms of any separate license agreement you may have executed
    +      with Licensor regarding such Contributions.
    +   6. Trademarks. This License does not grant permission to use the trade
    +      names, trademarks, service marks, or product names of the Licensor,
    +      except as required for reasonable and customary use in describing the
    +      origin of the Work and reproducing the content of the NOTICE file.
    +   7. Disclaimer of Warranty. Unless required by applicable law or
    +      agreed to in writing, Licensor provides the Work (and each
    +      Contributor provides its Contributions) on an "AS IS" BASIS,
    +      implied, including, without limitation, any warranties or conditions
    +      PARTICULAR PURPOSE. You are solely responsible for determining the
    +      appropriateness of using or redistributing the Work and assume any
    +      risks associated with Your exercise of permissions under this License.
    +   8. Limitation of Liability. In no event and under no legal theory,
    +      whether in tort (including negligence), contract, or otherwise,
    +      unless required by applicable law (such as deliberate and grossly
    +      negligent acts) or agreed to in writing, shall any Contributor be
    +      liable to You for damages, including any direct, indirect, special,
    +      incidental, or consequential damages of any character arising as a
    +      result of this License or out of the use or inability to use the
    +      Work (including but not limited to damages for loss of goodwill,
    +      work stoppage, computer failure or malfunction, or any and all
    +      other commercial damages or losses), even if such Contributor
    +      has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
    +   9. Accepting Warranty or Additional Liability. While redistributing
    +      the Work or Derivative Works thereof, You may choose to offer,
    +      and charge a fee for, acceptance of support, warranty, indemnity,
    +      or other liability obligations and/or rights consistent with this
    +      License. However, in accepting such obligations, You may act only
    +      on Your own behalf and on Your sole responsibility, not on behalf
    +      of any other Contributor, and only if You agree to indemnify,
    +      defend, and hold each Contributor harmless for any liability
    +      incurred by, or claims asserted against, such Contributor by reason
    +      of your accepting any such warranty or additional liability.
    +   APPENDIX: How to apply the Apache License to your work.
    +      To apply the Apache License to your work, attach the following
    +      boilerplate notice, with the fields enclosed by brackets "{}"
    +      replaced with your own identifying information. (Don't include
    +      the brackets!)  The text should be enclosed in the appropriate
    +      comment syntax for the file format. We also recommend that a
    +      file or class name and description of purpose be included on the
    +      same "printed page" as the copyright notice for easier
    +      identification within third-party archives.

    +University, [8]University of California, Irvine, and [9]Vanderbilt
    +University, Copyright (c) 1993-2017, all rights reserved. Since DOC
    +software is open-source, freely available software, you are free to
    +use, modify, copy, and distribute--perpetually and irrevocably--the
    +DOC software source code and object code produced from the source, as
    +well as copy and distribute modified versions of this software. You
    +must, however, include this copyright statement along with any code
    +built using DOC software that you release. No copyright statement
    +needs to be provided if you just ship binary executables of your
    +software products.
    +You can use DOC software in commercial and/or binary software releases
    +and are under no obligation to redistribute any of your source code
    +that is built using DOC software. Note, however, that you may not
    +misappropriate the DOC software code, such as copyrighting it yourself
    +or claiming authorship of the DOC software code, in a way that will
    +prevent DOC software from being distributed freely using an
    +open-source development model. You needn't inform anyone that you're
    +using DOC software in your software, though we encourage you to let
    +[10]us know so we can promote your project in the [11]DOC software
    +success stories.
    +The [12]ACE, [13]TAO, [14]CIAO, [15]DAnCE, and [16]CoSMIC web sites

    +Integrated Systems (ISIS) and the [19]Center for Distributed Object
    +Computing of Washington University, St. Louis for the development of
    +open-source software as part of the open-source software community.
    +Submissions are provided by the submitter ``as is'' with no warranties
    +whatsoever, including any warranty of merchantability, noninfringement
    +of third party intellectual property, or fitness for any particular
    +purpose. In no event shall the submitter be liable for any direct,
    +indirect, special, exemplary, punitive, or consequential damages,
    +including without limitation, lost profits, even if advised of the
    +possibility of such damages. Likewise, DOC software is provided as is
    +with no warranties of any kind, including the warranties of design,
    +merchantability, and fitness for a particular purpose,
    +noninfringement, or arising from a course of dealing, usage or trade
    +practice. Washington University, UC Irvine, Vanderbilt University,
    +their employees, and students shall have no liability with respect to
    +the infringement of copyrights, trade secrets or any patents by DOC
    +software or any part thereof. Moreover, in no event will Washington
    +University, UC Irvine, or Vanderbilt University, their employees, or
    +students be liable for any lost revenue or profits or other special,
    +indirect and consequential damages.
    +DOC software is provided with no support and without any obligation on
    +the part of Washington University, UC Irvine, Vanderbilt University,
    +their employees, or students to assist in its use, correction,
    +modification, or enhancement. A [20]number of companies around the
    +world provide commercial support for DOC software, however. DOC
    +software is Y2K-compliant, as long as the underlying OS platform is
    +Y2K-compliant. Likewise, DOC software is compliant with the new US
    +daylight savings rule passed by Congress as "The Energy Policy Act of
    +2005," which established new daylight savings times (DST) rules for
    +the United States that expand DST as of March 2007. Since DOC software
    +obtains time/date and calendaring information from operating systems
    +users will not be affected by the new DST rules as long as they
    +upgrade their operating systems accordingly.

Are you saying to just state it is public domain "period".
