The Apache Software Foundation uses various licenses to distribute software and documentationto accept regular contributions from individuals and corporationsand to accept larger grants of existing software products. These licenses help us achieve our goal of providing reliable and long-lived software products through collaborative open source software development.
In all cases, contributors retain full rights to use their original contributions for any other purpose outside of Apache while providing the ASF and its projects the right to distribute and build upon their work within Apache.
Apache License, Version 2. The goals of this license revision have been to reduce the number of frequently asked questions, to allow the license to be reusable without modification by Licensing notes project including non-ASF projectsto allow the license to be included by reference instead of listed in every file, to clarify the license on submission of contributions, to require a patent license on contributions that necessarily infringe the contributor's own patents, and to move comments regarding Apache and other inherited attribution notices to a location outside the license terms the NOTICE file.
The result is a license that is supposed to be compatible with other open source licenses, while remaining true to the original goals of the Apache Group and supportive of collaborative development across both nonprofit and commercial organizations. Apache License, Version 1.
The primary change from the 1. Individual packages licensed under the 1. The purpose of this agreement is to clearly define the terms under which intellectual property has been contributed to the ASF and thereby allow us to defend the project should there be a legal dispute regarding the software at some future time.
For a corporation that has assigned employees to work on an Apache 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 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.
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.
If you are submitting an ICLA in response to an invitation from a PMC, be sure to identify the project via the form field "notify project". Also, choose a preferred id that is not already in use.
Apache ids must start with an alphabetic character and contain at least two additional alphanumeric characters no special characters. You can check for ids in use here. Typically, this is done after negotiating approval with the ASF Incubator or one of the PMCs, since the ASF will not accept software unless there is a viable community available to support a collaborative project.
Postal mail hard copy and fax are no longer supported. When submitting by email, please fill the form with a pdf viewer, then print, sign, scan all pages into a single pdf file, and attach the pdf file to an email to secretary apache.
If possible, send the attachment from the email address in the document. Please send only one document per email. If you prefer to sign electronically, please fill the form, save it locally e.
For example, gpg --armor --detach-sign icla. Send both the file icla. Please send only one document file plus signature per email. Please do not submit your public key to Apache. Instead, please upload your public key to pgpkeys.Geoff Chappell, Software Analyst.
