The license granted in Section 3 above is expressly made subject to and limited by the following restrictions:

a. You may not sublicense the Work. If You distribute or display publicly the Work or any Adaptations, You must, unless a request has been made pursuant to this Section 4(a), keep intact or reproduce, as applicable, all copyright notices contained on the Work that refer to this License and provide reasonable to the medium or means You are utilizing: (i) the name of the Original Author (or pseudonym, if applicable) if supplied, and/or if the Original Author and/or Licensor designate another party or parties (e.g., a sponsor institute, publishing entity, journal) for attribution (“Attribution Parties”) in Licensor’s copyright notice, terms of service or by other reasonable means, the name of such party or parties; (ii) the title of the Work if supplied; (iii) to the extent reasonably practicable, the URI, if any, that Licensor specifies to be associated with the Work, unless such URI does not refer to the copyright notice or licensing information for the Work; and, (iv) consistent with Section 3, a credit identifying the use of the Original Author in the Work or the Adaptation (e.g., “architectural translation of the Work by Original Author”). The credit required by this Section 4(a) may be implemented in any reasonable manner. For the avoidance of doubt, You may only use the credit required by this Section 4(a) for the purpose of attribution in the manner set out above and, by exercising Your rights under this License, You may not implicitly or explicitly assert or imply any connection with, sponsorship or endorsement by the Original Author, Licensor and/or Attribution Parties, as appropriate, of You or Your use of the Work, without the separate, express prior written permission of the Original Author, Licensor and/or Attribution Parties. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if You create an Adaptation, upon notice from Licensor or the Original Author of the Work from which the Adaptation is based, You must, to the extent practicable, remove from the Adaptation any credit as would otherwise be required by Section 4(a), as requested.

b.

i. Non-waivable Compulsory License Schemes. In those jurisdictions in which the right to collect royalties through any statutory or compulsory licensing scheme cannot be waived, the Licensor reserves the exclusive right to collect such royalties for any exercise by You of the rights granted under this License; and ii. Waivable Compulsory License Schemes. In those jurisdictions in which the right to collect royalties through any statutory or compulsory licensing scheme can be waived, the Licensor reserves the exclusive right to collect such royalties for any exercise by You of the rights granted under this License if Your exercise of such rights is for a purpose or use which is otherwise than noncommercial as permitted under Section 4(b) and otherwise waives the right to collect royalties through any statutory or compulsory licensing scheme.

d. Except as otherwise agreed in writing by the Licensor or as may be otherwise permitted by applicable law, if You Reproduce, distribute or display publicly an Adaptation, You shall not attribute such Adaption to the Original Author as required by Section 4 (a) if such Adaption distorts, mutilates, modifies or takes other derogatory action in relation to the Work which would be prejudicial to the Original Author’s honor or reputation without the consent of such Original Author. Licensor agrees that in those jurisdictions (e.g. Japan), in which any exercise of the right granted in Section 3(a) of this License would be deemed to be a distortion, mutilation, modification or other derogatory action prejudicial to the Original Author’s honor and reputation, the Licensor will waive or not assert, as appropriate, this Section, to the fullest extent permitted by the applicable national law, to enable You to reasonably exercise Your right under Section 3(a) of this License but not otherwise.
