    Lightbulb fee provided

    Hi,

    I want to know if the below phrase is grammatically correct? and if so, what does "fee provided" means? actually I'm in trouble with the meaning of the sentence after the word "without...."



    Permission to make digital or hard copies of all or part of this work for personal or classroom use is granted without fee provided that copies are not made or distributed for profit or commercial advantage and that copies bear this notice and the full citation on the first page.



    Thanks

    Put a comma after "fee." "Without fee" is one idea. "Provided that..." is another idea.

    I understand your reason for the question. There should be a comma after "fee" meaning that there will be no charge for making copies if you only use the material for personal or classroom use.
