The above is a modified version of the MIT license designed to provide a bit more leeway in the distribution of elementals.js in regards to minification and web distribution. When it comes to an interpreted language like JavaScript slopping an entire legal disclaimer in the library file is just a way make sites slower and more painful to use.

I went with the MIT license as a base as if you are going to give something away, well... lands sake just GIVE IT AWAY!!! Don't give me none of that dirty hippy "open source" nonsense! Here's a tip: When someone runs their mouth about "Freedom" to then weigh it down with a license larger than the founding document of most nations, restricting what you can or cannot do with it by way of loopholes in contract law and legalese nobody but gaggle of lawyers could possibly decipher...

Well, does the term "snake oil" ring a bell?
