In order to use EnvyMud you must follow the Diku license, the Merc license, 
and our license.  The exact terms of the Diku license are in the file 
'license.doc'.  A summary of these terms is: 
 
	-- No resale or operation for profit. 
	-- Original author's names must appear in login sequence. 
	-- The 'credits' command must report original authors. 
	-- You must notify the Diku creators that you are operating a Diku mud. 
 
The exact terms of the Merc license are in the file 'license.txt'.  A summary 
of these terms is: 
 
	-- Copyrights must remain in original source. 
	-- 'Help merc' must report Merc help text, as shipped. 
 
Our terms are: 
 
	-- Copyrights must remain in original source. 
	-- 'Help envy' must report our help text, as shipped. 
 
Neither the Merc nor EnvyMud license terms require keeping our names in the 
'greeting' text.  If you want to include a reference to Merc and its authors 
(Furey, Hatchet, and Kahn) or EnvyMud and its authors (Kahn, Thelonius, Kith, 
and Hatchet), we'd appreciate it, but we do not require it.  However, you must 
keep the original Diku authors in the login sequence. 
 
If you do not follow these license terms, we will ask you to comply.  If that 
doesn't work, then we will talk to your system administrators (not about your 
running a mud, but on the grounds that you're using our copyrighted software 
without permission). 
 
These are very generous terms for any software.  If you don't want to accept 
them, feel free to run some other software, or write your own.
