GTK is "free"; this means that everyone is free to use it and free
to redistribute it on a free basis. GTK is not in the public domain; it
is copyrighted and there are restrictions on its distribution, but
these restrictions are designed to permit everything that a good
cooperating citizen would want to do. What is not allowed is to try to
prevent others from further sharing any version of GTK that they might
get from you.
Specifically, we want to make sure that you have the right to give
away copies of GTK, that you receive source code or else can get it if
you want it, that you can change GTK or use pieces of it in new free
programs, and that you know you can do these things.
To make sure that everyone has such rights, we have to forbid you to
deprive anyone else of these rights. For example, if you distribute
copies of GTK, 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 tell them their rights.
Also, for our own protection, we must make certain that everyone
finds out that there is no warranty for GTK. If GTK is modified by
someone else and passed on, we want their recipients to know that what
they have is not what we distributed, so that any problems introduced
by others will no reflect on our reputation.
The precise conditions of the licenses for GTK are found in the
General Public Licenses that accompany it.
