Note: The word books when used below refers to my blogbooks as well as books. This permission applies to all the books contained in above mentioned public folder BooksNBlogBooks-Authored-By-Me-Latest-Versions.

1. I hereby grant permission to anybody, anywhere to freely reuse (including adaptation) any of MY CONTENT of any of my above mentioned blogs/books, provided they give a reference to the original source (blogs/books) to enable interested persons to easily cross-check with the original source. An example of such reuse would be somebody editing part (or whole) of these blogs/books and then publishing and printing it as their (derived) work. Such reuse (including adaptation) of any of MY CONTENT of these blogs/books need not be limited to NOT-FOR-PROFIT work – it can be done as FOR-PROFIT work like publishing & printing a book for profit. I do NOT WANT any royalty or profit from any such FOR-PROFIT work reusing MY CONTENT of these blogs/books.

2. Any legal challenges/lawsuits filed/made by others (NOT me) related to reuse of MY CONTENT of these blogs/books, against people who did such reuse of MY CONTENT of these blogs/books, has to be handled by them (people who reused MY CONTENT) without any legal liability to me, except as required by Indian law.

3. If at all somebody is interested in translating any or all of MY CONTENT of these blogs/books to some other language then that is just another case of the reuse that I have mentioned above in point 1. So anybody is free (I grant them permission) to do such translation of MY CONTENT of these blogs/books and publish & print it, even FOR-PROFIT for them. I do NOT WANT any of the profits they may make from this activity.

4. If at all somebody is interested in printing and selling any or all of MY CONTENT of these blogs/books without any changes, then that too is just another case of the reuse that I have mentioned above. So anybody is free (I grant them permission) to do such printing and selling of MY CONTENT of these blogs/books, even FOR-PROFIT for them. I do NOT WANT any of the profits they may make from this activity.

5. Note that this permission applies only to MY CONTENT in these blogs/books and DOES NOT APPLY to content I have used from elsewhere which I have made every attempt to clearly show as having been taken from elsewhere or from somebody else. If any content of these blogs/books is not shown as having been taken from elsewhere or from somebody else, then it can be presumed that that content is MY CONTENT.

6. This permission also applies to future posts I make in these blogs and future books that I place in the above mentioned public folder BooksNBlogBooks-Authored-By-Me-Latest-Versions.
