License
-------

Carth is released under the AGPL license, version 3 or later. See
[LICENSE](./LICENSE).

Note that by default, all programs written in Carth will have to be
distributed under the AGPLv3 license as well, as not just the compiler
itself, but also the standard library you include and the core library
you link with are AGPLv3 licensed. Technically you could write your own
standard library and core library with some non-copyleft license to
avoid this, but I hope you won't! ;)

*Preface: copyright is a spook & capitalism is killing this planet.*

Carth is dual licensed under the Anti-Capitalist Software License or
the AGPL version 3 or later. See [LICENSE-ACSL](./LICENSE-ACSL) and
[LICENSE-AGPLv3](./LICENSE-AGPLv3) for the full license texts. For
more information about the licenses, go to

[gnu.org](https://www.gnu.org/licenses/agpl-3.0.en.html).

About the seriousness and enforcability of the anti-capitalist
software license, there's this quote from the homepage which sums it
up quite well:

> Copyright is easier to apply to how a work is used than to who uses
> it, and this license has not been tested in court. That said, using
> ACSL software against its terms would open the user to
> litigation. ACSL may best be considered a strong deterrent [against
> organizations organized along capitalist lines], as well as a way to
> state the politics and moral center of your code.

I include the AGPLv3+ as an alternative to be at least a little
pragmatic ;)
