Copyright Policy

The developers of csync have a policy of asking for contributions to be made under the personal copyright of the contributor, instead of a corporate copyright.

There are some reasons for the establishment of this policy:

  • Individual copyrights make copyright registration in the US a simpler process.
  • If libssh is copyrighted by individuals rather than corporations, decisions regarding enforcement and protection of copyright will, more likely, be made in the interests of the project, and not in the interests of any corporation’s shareholders.
  • If we ever need to relicense a portion of the code contacting individuals for permission to do so is much easier than contacting a company
