OASIS Open Projects: Entity Contributor License Agreement
All contributions of intellectual property to an OASIS Open Project must be bound by the terms of our Contributor License Agreement. This license is for your protection as a contributor as well as the protection of Open Project participants and implementers; it does not change your rights to use your own contributions for any other purpose.
When an individual makes contributions as a representative of your company or organization (“you”), using intellectual property owned by you, this Entity Contributor License Agreement (“e-CLA”) must be executed for the specific Open Project.
Signing this e-CLA does not remove the need for contributors to sign their own Individual CLA to cover contributions they make.
Terms of the Agreement
This CLA applies to all material (“Contributions”), including any original work of authorship and any modifications or additions to an existing work, that are sent, posted, or otherwise explicitly submitted for inclusion in any OASIS Open Project by your employees or other representatives designated by you, now and in the future.
You agree to license all of your rights in each of those Contributions, under the terms of the specific “Applicable License” designated in the LICENSE file of the repository into which it is submitted. Subject to the terms of this e-CLA, and without limiting the terms of the Applicable License, you also grant to OASIS a non-exclusive, perpetual, worldwide, no-charge, royalty-free, irrevocable copyright license (with the right to directly and indirectly sublicense) to reproduce, prepare derivative works of, publicly display, publicly perform, and distribute each of those Contributions and such derivative works that Implement Or Derive From those Contributions (as defined in the Open Project Rules), and enable the implementation of the same by other parties.
You additionally agree to the terms of the Specification Non-Assertion Covenant set forth in the Open Project Rules. These terms apply in some cases to all contributors and in other cases only if the contribution is made by a member of the Project Governing Board. That covenant may be withdrawn or terminated by you as provided by those terms.
This is a license and non-assertion agreement only; it does not transfer ownership and does not change your rights to use your Contributions for any other purpose. You understand that the OASIS Open Project is not required to use your Contributions.
You represent that you have the legal rights necessary to license each of your Contributions under the terms of the Applicable License and this e-CLA. If any part of your Contribution incorporates the original work of another party, you also represent that you have received all necessary rights and permissions from them to make the Contribution under the terms of the Applicable License.
Information and Disclosure
You agree that all OASIS Open Projects and their repositories are public, and that a record of your Contributions, including your identifying information and notices provided with them and in this e-CLA, may be permanently maintained and freely redistributed.
OASIS Open Projects are governed by the OASIS Open Project Rules, which can be found at: https://www.oasis-open.org/policies-guidelines/open-projects-process/. These rules may also affect the application of this CLA. Note the Call for Patent Disclosure contained in the Open Project Rules.
You agree to promptly notify OASIS by email to email@example.com if you become aware of any facts, changes or circumstances that would make your commitments and statements in this e-CLA inaccurate in any way or if you wish to withdraw from this CLA.
