LICENSE MODEL AND CONTRIBUTOR LICENSE AGREEMENT
The 5G-MAG Reference Tools may be used in validation, verification, demonstrations, trials and possible even in commercial services. For this purpose 5G-MAG’s developer program is supported by a permissible license and a community friendly Contributor License Agreement (CLA).
5G-MAG Public License v1.0
Some of the repositories of the 5G-MAG Reference Tools software are licensed under the 5G-MAG Public License v1.0.
The 5G-MAG Public License v1.0, which is a modified version of the Apache License v2.0, allows contributors to make patent license available to third parties under FRAND (fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory) terms for commercial exploitation. The 5G-MAG Reference Tools code is free for study, testing and research purposes.
We expect this setup to allow contributions to the 5G-MAG Reference Tools code while protecting IPR.
Contributor License Agreement
In order to clarify the intellectual property license granted with contributions from any person or entity, 5G-MAG must have a Contributor License Agreement ("CLA") on file that has been signed by each Contributor, indicating agreement to the license terms. We do this for your protection as a contributor as well as the protection of 5G-MAG and its users; and it does not change your rights to use your own contributions for any other purpose.
