Some third party files in the source code don't include proper copyright notices, but the Scribus developers have been told by their authors that the license is compatible to the GPL version (e.g. LGPL v. 2 or MIT license). This doesn't mean that you are allowed to copy or modify the code without obligations. It only means that the original authors forgot to add these notices. Without providing legal advice, we suggest that you contact the authors of the code who are mentioned in other files in the same directory and ask for permission or to update the files with appropriate licensing information.
22
 
23
Antiword, which is shipped with the Windows version of Scribus, is a separately licensed program under the GPL, and the copyright license is included with the program.
24
 
25
Resources, like the documentation, dictionary files, color profiles, color palettes, or templates, use their own licenses that need not be compatible with any of the licenses mentioned above, because resources are considered to be content, not functional code.
26
Note that some of these files, especially some color palettes, are subject to very strict licensing conditions.

 Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
62
 of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
63
 
64
			    Preamble
65
 
66
  The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
67
freedom to share and change it.  By contrast, the GNU General Public
68
License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
69
software--to make sure the software is free for all its users.  This
70
General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
71
Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
72
using it.  (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
73
the GNU Library General Public License instead.)  You can apply it to
74
your programs, too.
75
 
76
  When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
77
price.  Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
78
have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
79
this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
80
if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
81
in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
82
 
83
  To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
84
anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
85
These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
86
distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
87
 
88
  For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
89
gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
90
you have.  You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
91
source code.  And you must show them these terms so they know their
92
rights.
93
 
94
  We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
95
(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
96
distribute and/or modify the software.
97
 
98
  Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
99
that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
100
software.  If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
101
want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
102
that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
103
authors' reputations.
104
 
105
  Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
106
patents.  We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
107
program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
108
program proprietary.  To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
109
patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
110
 
111
  The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
112
modification follow.
113
 
114
		    GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
115
   TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
116
 
117
  0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
118
a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
119
under the terms of this General Public License.  The "Program", below,
120
refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
121
means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
122
that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
123
either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
124
language.  (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
125
the term "modification".)  Each licensee is addressed as "you".
126
 
127
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
128
covered by this License; they are outside its scope.  The act of
129
running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
130
is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
131
Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
132
Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
133
 
134
  1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
135
source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
136
conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
137
copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
138
notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
139
and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
140
along with the Program.
141
 
142
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
143
you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
144
 
145
  2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
146
of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
147
distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
148
above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
149
 
150
    a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
151
    stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
152
 
153
    b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
154
    whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
155
    part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
156
    parties under the terms of this License.
157
 
158
    c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
159
    when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
160
    interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
161
    announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
162
    notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
163
    a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
164
    these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
165
    License.  (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
166
    does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
167
    the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
168
 
169
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole.  If
170
identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
171
and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
172
themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
173
sections when you distribute them as separate works.  But when you
174
distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
175
on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
176
this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
177
entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
178
 
179
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
180
your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
181
exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
182
collective works based on the Program.
183
 
184
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
185
with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
186
a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
187
the scope of this License.
188
 
189
  3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
190
under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
191
Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
192
 
193
    a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
194
    source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
195
    1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
196
 
197
    b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
198
    years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
199
    cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
200
    machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
201
    distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
202
    customarily used for software interchange; or,
203
 
204
    c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
205
    to distribute corresponding source code.  (This alternative is
206
    allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
207
    received the program in object code or executable form with such
208
    an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
209
 
210
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
211
making modifications to it.  For an executable work, complete source
212
code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
213
associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
214
control compilation and installation of the executable.  However, as a
215
special exception, the source code distributed need not include
216
anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
217
form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
218
operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
219
itself accompanies the executable.
220
 
221
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
222
access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
223
access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
224
distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
225
compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
226
 
227
  4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
228
except as expressly provided under this License.  Any attempt
229
otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
230
void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
231
However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
232
this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
233
parties remain in full compliance.
234
 
235
  5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
236
signed it.  However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
237
distribute the Program or its derivative works.  These actions are
238
prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.  Therefore, by
239
modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
240
Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
241
all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
242
the Program or works based on it.
243
 
244
  6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
245
Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
246
original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
247
these terms and conditions.  You may not impose any further
248
restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
249
You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
250
this License.
251
 
252
  7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
253
infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
254
conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
255
otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
256
excuse you from the conditions of this License.  If you cannot
257
distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
258
License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
259
may not distribute the Program at all.  For example, if a patent
260
license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
261
all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
262
the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
263
refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
264
 
265
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
266
any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
267
apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
268
circumstances.
269
 
270
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
271
patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
272
such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
273
integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
274
implemented by public license practices.  Many people have made
275
generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
276
through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
277
system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
278
to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
279
impose that choice.
280
 
281
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
282
be a consequence of the rest of this License.
283
 
284
  8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
285
certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
286
original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
287
may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
288
those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
289
countries not thus excluded.  In such case, this License incorporates
290
the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
291
 
292
  9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
293
of the General Public License from time to time.  Such new versions will
294
be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
295
address new problems or concerns.
296
 
297
Each version is given a distinguishing version number.  If the Program
298
specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
299
later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
300
either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
301
Software Foundation.  If the Program does not specify a version number of
302
this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
303
Foundation.
304
 
305
  10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
306
programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
307
to ask for permission.  For software which is copyrighted by the Free
308
Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
309
make exceptions for this.  Our decision will be guided by the two goals
310
of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
311
of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.
312
 
313
			    NO WARRANTY
314
 
315
  11. BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO WARRANTY
316
FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.  EXCEPT WHEN
317
OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR OTHER PARTIES
318
PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED
319
OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF
320
MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.  THE ENTIRE RISK AS
321
TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE PROGRAM IS WITH YOU.  SHOULD THE
322
PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING,
323
REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
324
 
325
  12. IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN WRITING
326
WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY AND/OR
327
REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR DAMAGES,
328
INCLUDING ANY GENERAL, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING
329
OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED
330
TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY
331
YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER
332
PROGRAMS), EVEN IF SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE
333
POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
334
 
335
		     END OF TERMS AND CONDITIONS
