+<p>This is a license that Unicode, Inc. has applied to the Unicode
+  Character Database&mdash;various data files that developers can use
+  to help implement the Unicode standard in their own programs.  It is
+  a simple permissive license, compatible with all versions of the
+  GPL.</p>
+<p>If you want to use files covered by this License Agreement in your
+  own software, that shouldn't be any problem, but we recommend that
+  you also include a full copy of its text.  Some of the files contain
+  alternative license terms which are nonfree, or no licensing
+  information at all, so including a copy of the License Agreement
+  will help avoid confusion when others want to distribute your
+  software.  Of course, you'll also need to follow the conditions in
+  this License Agreement for distributing the files, but those are
+  very straightforward.</p>
+<p>Please take care to ensure that the files you are using are covered
+  by this License Agreement.  Other files published by Unicode,
+  Inc. are covered by the Unicode Terms of Use, a different, nonfree
+  license that appears on the same page but covers different files.  A
+  short explanation at the top of this License Agreement details
+  which files it covers.</p>
+<p>Please do not use this License Agreement for your own software.  If
+  you want to use a simple permissive license for your project, please
+  use the<a href="#Expat">Expat license</a>; it is by far more common,
+  and widely recognized in the free software community.</p>
