Subject Modifying SGA form for collective grant
Date Sat, 25 Sep 2010 16:11:12 GMT

The IP Clearance page gives two options for collective grants:

  1. All entities sign the same software grant together and submit one
     software grant form. This is preferred but obviously can complicate the
     process considerably.

  2. The alternative is that each party sign its own software grant while
     everyone references the same contribution (designated by a URL and an
     MD5 hash over the ZIP file representing the contribution). It is
     recommended that the software grant form is modified in order to have a
     line for each party so the completeness of the paperwork can be verified
     upon receipt.

We're going to have around 20 participants in our grant, and they are scattered
around the globe (Croatia, Japan, etc.), so the second option is more
practical.  It seems awkward to add a full signature section for each
participant, though, as that will explode the document length out to many
pages, so I'm not sure I understand the instructions correctly.


    Signed By: _____________________________________

    Print Name: ____________________________________

    Title: _________________________________________

    Representing: __________________________________


    Contact Name: __________________________________

    Contact Email: _________________________________

Perhaps it would be better to list all the grant participants as "Exhibit B",
using the following language?

    Exhibit B

    This collective software grant requires the participation of the following

      * Marvin Humphrey
      * Eventful, Inc.
      * Peter Karman

Are there any other examples of "modified" collective grant forms that we can
go examine?
