Message-ID: <3EDBCCE80E95E744A99895CA464987C44BB087@dtcsrvr09> (raw)


I am in the process of doing a copyright assignment.  I have the company
disclaimer taken care of, and am wondering if I can use something similar to
what I have attached to cover the individual writers.  I am trying to avoid
sending multiple assignments to cover the work that we have done and will do
in the future.  So instead of multiple copies of the individual assignment
(one for each of the people that have participated in a port) can I send
something like:  (Please ignore the Red Hat name I will use the latest form
- this example is a couple of years old...)


	For good and valuable consideration, receipt of which I acknowledge,
DTC Communications, Inc. ("DTC"), hereby transfers to Red Hat, Inc. its
entire right, title, and interest (including all rights under copyright) in
its changes and enhancements to the eCos Operating System and associated
software (herein called the "Software"), subject to the conditions below.
These changes and enhancements are herein called the "Work". The Work also
includes any future changes and enhancements to the Software hereafter made
by DTC, which are also hereby assigned.

	Upon thirty days prior written notice, Red Hat agrees to grant DTC
non-exclusive rights to use the Work (i.e. just its changes and
enhancements, not eCos as a whole) as DTC sees fit; (and Red Hat's rights
shall otherwise continue unchanged).

	DTC hereby agrees that if it has or acquires hereafter any patent or
interface copyright or other intellectual property interest dominating the
software enhanced by the Work (or use of that software), such dominating
interest will not be used to undermine the effect of this assignment, i.e.
Red Hat and the general public will be licensed to use, in that program and
its derivative works, without royalty or limitation, the subject matter of
the dominating interest. This license provision will be binding on DTC's
heirs, assignees, or other successors to the dominating interest, as well as
on DTC.

	DTC hereby represents and warrants that it is the sole copyright
holder for the Work and that it has the right and power to enter into this
contract.  DTC makes no other express or implied warranty (including without
limitation, in this disclaimer of warranty, any warranty of MERCHANTABILITY
