Subject Re: FAQ: CCLA Optional?
Date Thu, 07 Jan 2016 17:04:15 GMT
Good suggestion

I would think that the answer needs to be more than just "if your employer
requires so".  It would need to cover the fact that many employment
contracts give copyright and IP of work done on employer time (and sometimes
outside of it) to the employer and so a CCLA would be desirable/required
unless Apache contributions are done only outside employer time.  Also in
some jurisdictions this may actually be an implicit effect of the
jurisdictions copyright/IP law e.g.

n-employer
