+                      ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT LICENSING
+
+Certain files distributed by Oracle America, Inc. and/or its affiliates are 
+subject to the following clarification and special exception to the GPLv2, 
+based on the GNU Project exception for its Classpath libraries, known as the 
+GNU Classpath Exception.
+
+Note that Oracle includes multiple, independent programs in this software 
+package.  Some of those programs are provided under licenses deemed 
+incompatible with the GPLv2 by the Free Software Foundation and others. 
+For example, the package includes programs licensed under the Apache 
+License, Version 2.0 and may include FreeType. Such programs are licensed 
+to you under their original licenses. 
+
+Oracle facilitates your further distribution of this package by adding the 
+Classpath Exception to the necessary parts of its GPLv2 code, which permits 
+you to use that code in combination with other independent modules not 
+licensed under the GPLv2. However, note that this would not permit you to 
+commingle code under an incompatible license with Oracle's GPLv2 licensed 
+code by, for example, cutting and pasting such code into a file also 
+containing Oracle's GPLv2 licensed code and then distributing the result. 
+
+Additionally, if you were to remove the Classpath Exception from any of the 
+files to which it applies and distribute the result, you would likely be 
+required to license some or all of the other code in that distribution under 
+the GPLv2 as well, and since the GPLv2 is incompatible with the license terms 
+of some items included in the distribution by Oracle, removing the Classpath 
+Exception could therefore effectively compromise your ability to further 
+distribute the package. 
+
+Failing to distribute notices associated with some files may also create 
+unexpected legal consequences.
+ 
+Proceed with caution and we recommend that you obtain the advice of a lawyer 
+skilled in open source matters before removing the Classpath Exception or 
+making modifications to this package which may subsequently be redistributed 
+and/or involve the use of third party software.

+
+OPENJDK ASSEMBLY EXCEPTION
+
+The OpenJDK source code made available by Oracle America, Inc. (Oracle) at
+openjdk.java.net ("OpenJDK Code") is distributed under the terms of the GNU
+General Public License <http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html> version 2
+only ("GPL2"), with the following clarification and special exception.
+
+    Linking this OpenJDK Code statically or dynamically with other code
+    is making a combined work based on this library.  Thus, the terms
+    and conditions of GPL2 cover the whole combination.
+
+    As a special exception, Oracle gives you permission to link this
+    OpenJDK Code with certain code licensed by Oracle as indicated at
+    http://openjdk.java.net/legal/exception-modules-2007-05-08.html
+    ("Designated Exception Modules") to produce an executable,
+    regardless of the license terms of the Designated Exception Modules,
+    and to copy and distribute the resulting executable under GPL2,
+    provided that the Designated Exception Modules continue to be
+    governed by the licenses under which they were offered by Oracle.
+
+As such, it allows licensees and sublicensees of Oracle's GPL2 OpenJDK Code
+to build an executable that includes those portions of necessary code that
+Oracle could not provide under GPL2 (or that Oracle has provided under GPL2
+with the Classpath exception).  If you modify or add to the OpenJDK code,
+that new GPL2 code may still be combined with Designated Exception Modules
+if the new code is made subject to this exception by its copyright holder.
