In order to clarify the intellectual property license granted in the Contribution (defined below) Redis Labs, Inc. (“Redis”) maintains a Software Grant and Contributor License Agreement (“Agreement”) on file that has been signed by each contributor, indicating agreement to the license terms below. This license is for your protection as a contributor as well as the protection of Redis and its users; it does not change your rights to use your own Contribution for any other purpose.

You accept and agree to the following terms and conditions for the Contribution. Except for the license granted herein to Redis and recipients of software distributed by Redis, You reserve all right, title, and interest in and to Your Contribution.

  1. Definitions. “You” (or “Your”) shall mean the copyright owner or legal entity authorized by the copyright owner that is making this Agreement with Redis. 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 the code, documentation or any original work of authorship, including any modifications or additions to an existing work described above. “Work” means any software project stewarded by Redis.

  2. Grant of Copyright License. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, You hereby grant to Redis and to recipients of software distributed by Redis a perpetual, worldwide, nonexclusive, no-charge, royalty-free, irrevocable copyright license to reproduce, prepare derivative works of, publicly display, publicly perform, sublicense, and distribute Your Contribution and such derivative works.

  3. Grant of Patent License. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, You hereby grant to Redis and to recipients of software distributed by Redis a perpetual, worldwide, nonexclusive, no-charge, royalty-free, 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 alone or by combination of Your Contribution with the Work to which such Contribution 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 You are an entity, You represent further that each employee or agent designated by You is authorized to submit Contribution on behalf of You.

  5. You represent that Your Contribution is Your original.

  6. You are not expected to provide support for Your Contribution, except to the extent You desire to provide support. You may provide support for free, for a fee, or not at all. Unless required by applicable law or agreed to in writing, You provide Your Contribution 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.
