In order to make the use of YAML possible in these cases, license models for commercial use have been developed, alternative to the Creative Commons license.

The Licensor shall ensure the delivered software library is free from material or legal defects. The guarantee period is one year, and begins with the downloading of the software library or release.

This limitation or exclusion of liability shall not apply to damages that result from injury to life, limb, or health.

Any and all oral arrangements between the parties are void. Solely the law of the Federal Republic of Germany shall apply, under exclusion of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. If any of the provisions of this agreement are found to be invalid, the validity of the remaining provisions shall be unaffected thereby. If the Licensee is a business, the place of fulfillment and sole legal venue is Berlin. However, the Licensor is also entitled to file a claim against the Licensee at the latter’s court of venue.
