  5. 5. Contributors Agreement Review of existing agreement Purpose of a contributors agreement Questions and Feedback
  6. 6. Purpose of a Contributors Agreement Clearly defines the terms under which intellectual property has been contributed to the project. Allows Medsphere to defend the project should there be a legal dispute regarding the software at some future time. Allows Medsphere to alter the license in the future to adapt to new and unknown circumstances and technology. Protects the project and its code from being encumbered by multiple copyright holders and/or licenses. An agreement is required to be on file before a contribution can be added to a project’s code base (“mainline”) for distribution.
