Subject Corporate vs Individual License Agreements
Date Wed, 08 Apr 2015 13:44:32 GMT
Many people ask about the difference between the Corporate and Individual
License Agreements, the CCLA vs ICLA, and what they are for.

ICLA is effectively an re-affirmation that you have the right to make
future contributions to the Apache Software Foundation. You state that you
have the right to contribute the stuff that you contribute. Most common
case is of course "because I wrote it and own its Copyright", but some
circumstances exist where one has right to contribute other people's work,
for instance via employment or licensing.

CCLA is for your employer to signal the intent that they have no problem
with you working on Apache projects. These are strictly not required, as it
doesn't help the ASF, it only exists to protect the contributors. It is
recommended that you try to get your company to sign it (can be difficult
in large companies), or otherwise get a manager to acknowledge that there
is no issues via an email.
