Traduora's Contributor License Agreement
Contributor License Agreement (CLA)
This license is for your protection as a Contributor as well as the protection of the maintainers of the Traduora software; it does not change your rights to use your own Contributions for any other purpose. In the following, the maintainers of Traduora are referred to as Traduora.
You accept and agree to the following terms and conditions for Your present and future Contributions submitted to Traduora. Except for the license granted herein to Traduora and recipients of software distributed by Traduora, You reserve all right, title, and interest in and to Your Contributions.
1. Definitions.
“You” (or “Your”) shall mean the copyright owner or legal entity authorized by the copyright owner that is making this Agreement with Traduora. For legal entities, the entity making a Contribution and all other entities that control, are controlled by, or are under common control with that entity are considered to be a single Contributor. For the purposes of this definition, “control” means (i) the power, direct or indirect, to cause the direction or management of such entity, whether by contract or otherwise, or (ii) ownership of fifty percent (50%) or more of the outstanding shares, or (iii) beneficial ownership of such entity.
“Contribution” shall mean any original work of authorship, including any modifications or additions to an existing work, that is or has been intentionally submitted by You to Traduora for inclusion in, or documentation of, any of the products owned or managed by Traduora (the “Work”). For the purposes of this definition, “submitted” means any form of electronic, verbal, or written communication sent to Traduora or its representatives, including but not limited to communication on electronic mailing lists, source code control systems, and issue tracking systems that are managed by, or on behalf of, Traduora for the purpose of discussing and improving the Work, but excluding communication that is conspicuously marked or otherwise designated in writing by You as “Not a Contribution.”
2. Grant of Copyright Rights.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, You hereby assign to Traduora join ownership, and to the extent such assignment is or becomes invalid, ineffective or unenforceable, You hereby grant to Traduora and to recipients of software distributed, sold or otherwise transferred by Traduora a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, no-charge, royalty-free, transferable, sublicensable, irrevocable, unrestricted copyright license to reproduce, prepare derivative works of, publicly display, publicly perform, sublicense, and distribute Your Contributions and such derivative works. You agree that You will not assert any moral rights in Your Contributions against Traduora, its licensees or transferees. You additionally agree that Traduora has no duty to consult with, obtain the consent of, pay or render an accounting to you for any use or distribution of Your Contributions.
3. Grant of Patent License.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, You hereby grant to Traduora and to recipients of software distributed, sold or otherwise transferred by Traduora a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, no-charge, royalty-free, transferable, sublicensable, irrevocable (except as stated in this section) patent license to make, have made, use, offer to sell, sell, import, and otherwise transfer the Work, where such license applies only to those patent claims licensable by You that are necessarily infringed by Your Contribution(s) alone or by combination of Your Contribution(s) with the Work to which such Contribution(s) was submitted. If any entity institutes patent litigation against You or any other entity (including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that your Contribution, or the Work to which you have contributed, constitutes direct or contributory patent infringement, then any patent licenses granted to that entity under this Agreement for that Contribution or Work shall terminate as of the date such litigation is filed.
4. You represent that you are legally entitled to grant the above license.
If your employer(s) has rights to intellectual property that you create that includes your Contributions, you represent that you have received express written permission to make Contributions on behalf of that employer in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, that your employer has expressly and unambiguously waived such rights for your Contributions to Traduora in writing, or that your employer has executed a separate Corporate CLA with Traduora.
5. You represent that each of Your Contributions is Your original creation and You can legally grant the rights set forth in this Agreement.
You represent that Your Contribution submissions include complete details of any third-party license or other restriction (including, but not limited to, related patents and trademarks) of which you are personally aware and which are associated with any part of Your Contributions. You represent that none of Your Contributions infringe, violate or misappropriate any third party intellectual property or other proprietary rights.
6. You are not expected to provide support for Your Contributions, except to the extent You desire to provide support. Unless required by applicable law or agreed to in writing, You provide Your Contributions on an "AS IS" BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, either express or implied, including, without limitation, any warranties or conditions of TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY, or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
7. Should You wish to submit work that is not Your original creation, You may submit it to Traduora separately from any Contribution, identifying the complete details of its source and of any license or other restriction (including, but not limited to, related patents, trademarks, and license agreements) of which you are personally aware, and conspicuously marking the work as "Submitted on behalf of a third-party: [named here]".
8. You agree to notify Traduora of any facts or circumstances of which you become aware that would make these representations inaccurate in any respect.
