Who will own the code in the Sample Implementation, and modifications to it?

0

Ownership of the original code will remain in SGI. Contributors of modifications to the original code will own their own modifications (independent of the original code); however, SGI will ask for assignment back to SGI of any contributors’ modifications offered to SGI as gatekeeper of the “official” Original Code of the SI. This is to ensure that the OpenGL SI can continue to play the role of “the gold standard”, freely shared with the development community. As with every other sort of open-source license, the “B” license includes certain requirements (“action items,” if you will) regarding language to be placed in comments fields and the like, which, among other things, keep SGI from being responsible for the worthiness, legitimacy, originality, etc., of modifications over which SGI has no control. Modifications which are taken back into the SGI code base for the open-source version of the SI will be released under the SGI Free Software License B.
