66 unmodified form, along with a number of other contributions,
67 constituting separate and independent works in themselves,
68 are assembled into a collective whole. A work that constitutes a

211 distribute, publicly display, publicly perform, or publicly

213 Work that alter or restrict the terms of this License or the
214 recipients' exercise of the rights granted hereunder. You may not
215 sublicense the Work. You must keep intact all notices that refer

217 distribute, publicly display, publicly perform, or publicly

221 as incorporated in a Collective Work, but this does not require
222 the Collective Work apart from the Work itself to be made subject
223 to the terms of this License. If You create a Collective Work,
224 upon notice from any Licensor You must, to the extent practicable,
225 remove from the Collective Work any reference to such Licensor or
226 the Original Author, as requested. If You create a Derivative Work,

286 in the Derivative Work (e.g., "French translation of the Work by
