We believe in open innovation and a strong intellectual commons. We also believe free and open-source software encapsulates the values and philosophy that has driven scientific enquiry for centuries. Open approaches ensure continuous peer review and strong scientific foundations, empowering communities to cooperatively learn from one another. We initiate projects under share-alike licenses: the GNU Public License (GPL) for software, and Creative Commons BY-SA for media.
For projects which we initiate and maintain - we ask community developers to sign a CLA (contributor license agreement). The CLA specifies that you can use your contributions however you like, and licenses us to use your contributions as we like, supporting us in our attempts to generate earnings and carry on maintaining and contributing to open community projects.
