OASIS Open Repositories: Individual Contributor License Agreement

In order to contribute intellectual property into an OASIS Open Repository, you must agree to be bound by the terms of this Agreement ("CLA"), so that it is clear what terms apply to your intellectual property contributions. This is a license by you as an individual, for your protection as a contributor as well as for the protection of OASIS Open and all who use the donated material. You are required to agree to this CLA before you contribute to an OASIS Open Repository. You can do so by completing the online form below.

For a corporation, organization or other entity that has assigned employees or contractors to contribute to an OASIS Open Repository, an Entity CLA is available for contributing intellectual property via that entity, that may have been assigned as part of an employment or contractor agreement. Signing of an Entity CLA does not remove the need for every developer or contributor to sign their own CLA as an individual, to cover any contributions not owned by the entity signing the Entity CLA.

This CLA applies to all material ("Contributions"), including any original work of authorship and any modifications or additions to an existing work, that you send, post or otherwise explicitly submit for inclusion in any OASIS Open Repository, now and in the future.

You agree to license all of your rights in your Contributions, under the terms of the specific "Applicable License" posted for that repository in its purpose statement, for the benefit of both OASIS and all later parties who that Applicable License benefits.

Subject to the terms of this CLA, and without limiting the terms of the Applicable License, you also hereby grant to OASIS 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.

This is a license agreement only; it does not transfer ownership, and does not change your rights to use your own Contributions for any other purpose. You understand that OASIS, its members and the users of its Open Repositories are not required to make any use of your Contributions.

You represent that you have the all of the legal rights necessary to license each of your Contributions under the terms of the Applicable License and this CLA. If you are employed, you also represent that you have received any necessary permissions from your employer to submit your Contributions and grant those licenses. 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, and that your employer either has waived such rights for your Contributions to OASIS, or has executed a separate Entity CLA with OASIS.

You agree that all OASIS Open Repositories are public, and that a record of your Contributions, including your identifying information and notices provided with them and in this CLA, may be permanently maintained and freely redistributed. OASIS guidelines and procedures for its Open Repositories can be found at: https://www.oasis-open.org/policies-guidelines/open-repositories.

You agree to promptly notify OASIS by email to repository-cla@oasis-open.org if you become aware of any facts, changes or circumstances that would make your commitments and statements in this CLA inaccurate in any way, or if you wish to terminate this CLA.
