Cihai Foundation Software Grant and Corporate Contributor License Agreement
("Agreement"), v1.0
You accept and agree to the following terms and conditions for Your present and
future Contributions submitted to Cihai Software Foundation. ("Cihai"). Except
for the license granted herein to Cihai and recipients of software distributed
by Cihai, 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 Cihai. 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 other original works of
authorship expressly identified in Schedule B, as well as any original work of
authorship, including any modifications or additions to an existing work, that
is intentionally submitted by You to Cihai for inclusion in, or documentation
of, any of the products owned or managed by Cihai (the "Work"). For the
purposes of this definition, "submitted" means any form of electronic, verbal,
or written communication sent to Cihai 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, Cihai
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 License. Subject to the terms and conditions of this
Agreement, You hereby grant to Cihai and to recipients of software distributed
by Cihai a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, no-charge, royalty-free,
irrevocable copyright license to reproduce, prepare derivative works of,
publicly display, publicly perform, sublicense, and distribute Your
Contributions and such derivative works.
3. Grant of Patent License. Subject to the terms and conditions of this
Agreement, You hereby grant to Cihai and to recipients of software distributed
by Cihai a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, 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(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. You
represent further that each employee of the Corporation designated on Schedule
A below (or in a subsequent written modification to that Schedule) is
authorized to submit Contributions on behalf of the Corporation.
5. You represent that each of Your Contributions is Your original creation (see
section 7 for submissions on behalf of others).
6. You are not expected to provide support for Your Contributions, 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 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 Cihai 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. It is your responsibility to notify Cihai when any change is required to the
list of designated employees authorized to submit Contributions on behalf of
the Corporation, or to the Corporation's Point of Contact with Cihai.
