This script is free for personal non-commercial use. The source code can be freely modified for your own private non-commercial use (as with any other content on your computer) but can't be re-distributed (unless it meets the requirements in the following sentences). The source code can't be included in other scripts, except for where it would fall under "fair use" such as only using a tiny bit of the code. If all of my Youtube scripts (including this script) have not been updated for 6 months (ie, if 1 has been updated then all are protected), and I don't respond to any PMs on userscripts.org, other people may re-upload the script and continue development with this same licence (or one with similar goals). If you wish to use the source code for any other reason (eg, a "script pack" extension, in your own script, or for commercial use) please contact me and I can give you permission. This is not intended to be a restrictive licence, but is simply here to stop other people from taking credit for my work, or making money out of something that I've done for free.
