The Elxis Public License (EPL) is a free license for software and other kinds of works although it was initially written for Elxis CMS. The scope of this license is to make sure Elxis will always be an open source software released for free to the public in its original form. In order to protect Elxis from license violations from which, unfortunately, we have suffered in the past, EPL prohibits you from renaming Elxis, removing copyright notes and share modified copies of it. The terms and conditions described in this document, besides Elxis, applies to any software released under the EPL license.
