Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-100) Modifications to CCLA for the National Security Agency
Date Sat, 01 Oct 2011 16:56:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-100?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13118848#comment-13118848

Adam Fuchs commented on LEGAL-100:

NSA is looking for mutually acceptable terms via which its employees can be allowed to become
committers to Apache projects as part of their official duties. Standard ICLA with a modified
CCLA is one proposed solution, but NSA is open to other suggestions. Larry alluded to the
possibility that government employee committers who have signed an ICLA might not require
a signed CCLA for continuing contributions that are in the public domain, and I'm sure NSA
and its employees would also find that to be an acceptable solution.

> In preparation for contributing Accumulo to the incubator, the National Security Agency
has submitted a modified version of the CCLA. The modifications include a broadening of the
definition of "You" and "Your" to include owners of contributions not subject to copyright,
and a limit on the copyright license to the material for which copyright exists. We would
like to know if this modified CCLA is acceptable to cover our participation as Apache committers.
The modified paragraphs follow:
> ...
>     "You" (or "Your") shall mean the copyright owner, the owner of a
>     contribution not subject to copyright, or legal entity authorized by
>     the copyright owner that is making this Agreement with the Foundation.
>     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.
> ...
>  2. Grant of Copyright License. Subject to the terms and conditions
>     of this Agreement, You hereby grant to the Foundation and to
>     recipients of software distributed by the Foundation 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, to the extent that
>     copyright exists in the Contribution(s).
> ...
