The Modelado Foundation desires that all contributors of ideas, code, or documentation to any Modelado projects complete, sign, and submit via email an Individual Contributor License Agreement (ICLA).
The purpose of this agreement is to clearly define the terms under which intellectual property has been contributed to the Modelado Foundation and thereby allow us to defend the project should there be a legal dispute regarding the software at some future time. A signed ICLA is required to be on file before an individual is given commit rights to any Modelado Foundation project.
For a corporation that has assigned employees to work on a Modelado project, a Corporate CLA (CCLA) is available for contributing intellectual property via the corporation, that may have been assigned as part of an employment agreement.
Note that a Corporate CLA does not necessarily remove the need for every developer to sign their own ICLA as an individual, which covers both contributions which are owned and those that are not owned by the corporation signing the CCLA. Modelado works with specific contributing Corporations to remove this requirement for an ICLA so that the CCLA is sufficient. Please check with your corporate council or send email to the above address and we will telL you if such an agreement exists and the name of your responsible corporate council.
The CCLA legally binds the corporation, so it must be signed by a person with authority to enter into legal contracts on behalf of the corporation.
The ICLA is not tied to any employer you may have, so it is recommended to use one’s personal email address in the contact details, rather than an @work address.
Your Full name will be published unless you provide an alternative Public name. For example if your full name is Andrew Bernard Charles Dickens, but you wish to be known as Andrew Dickens, please enter the latter as your Public name.
The email address and other contact details are not published.
