TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION, MODIFICATION AND USAGE

0. This License applies to the MTA client and surrounding software including, but not limited to, the server, admin, config tool, and may also include associated media and “online” or electronic documentation. This package will be addressed as MTA. Each licensee is addressed as “you”.

1. You may copy and distribute copies of MTA without any approval of the team if the software package remains intact. Each time you redistribute the program, the recipient automatically receives a license from the original licensor to copy and/or distribute the package subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.

The origin of the software must not be misrepresented; you must not claim that you wrote the original software.

2. You are not allowed to alter any binaries or libraries that came with the software. This includes, but is not limited to reverse engineering, decompiling, disassembling and hex editing. An exception can be made for educational purposes although this requires a new license which has to be requested to and approved by the MTA team or when such activity is expressly permitted by applicable law notwithstanding this limitation.

  • Note: You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it (not accepting means you are not allowed to install/use MTA). However, nothing else grants you permission to modify the program. These actions are prohibited by law.

3. Using this software together with other GTA3/GTA:VC modifications is prohibited by this EULA. This is not a cause for termination of the license but can result in further actions taken by the team or other licensees.

4. All title and copyrights in and to MTA (including but not limited to any images, photographs, video, audio, music and text) are owned by the MTA-Team. All title and intellectual property rights in and content which may be accessed through use of MTA (such as GTA) is the property of the respective content owner and may be protected by applicable copyright or other intellectual property laws and treaties.
