Subject to the restrictions below and any guidelines in the accompanying documentation, you may use the Software for any commercial or noncommercial purpose, including making copies, distributing modifications, and combining it with your own products or services.

In return, we simply require that you agree:
1. Not to remove any copyright or other notices from the Software.
2. That you have no right to combine or distribute the Software or modifications with other software or content that is licensed under terms that seek to require that the Software or modifications (or any intellectual property in it) be provided in source code form, licensed to others to allow the creation or distribution of derivative works, or distributed without charge.
3. That if you distribute:
a. the Software in source code form, you may do so only under this license (i.e., you must include a complete copy of this license with your distribution), and
b. the Software solely in object code form, or modifications in either source or object code form, you do so only under a license that complies with this license.

5. That if you distribute modifications, you will cause the modified files to carry prominent notices so that recipients know they are not receiving the original Software.

7. That you can recover from Microsoft and its suppliers only direct damages up to US$5.00. You cannot recover any other damages, including those known as consequential, lost profits, special, indirect or incidental damages.

8. That if you sue anyone over patents that you think may apply to the Software for a person’s use of the Software, your license to the Software ends automatically.
