# distribute the SOFTWARE only in conjunction with, and as part of,
# your Source Modifications which add significant functionality to the

# Modifications solely as part of your research and not in any
# commercial product; (iii) the SOFTWARE and/or your Source
# Modifications will not be distributed for profit; (iv) to retain all
# branding, copyright and trademark notices included with the SOFTWARE
