2. There shall be no further distribution or publication of the SOFTWARE by RECIPIENT, neither the source code, nor the executable code, nor associated run-time applications, whether standalone or embedded, to or for use by any third party without the express prior written approval of NASA.
3. Excluded from the foregoing restrictions is information that:
