# Odoo Corporate Contributor License Agreement
## Odoo CCLA v1.0
Based on the Apache Software Foundation Corporate Contributor License Agreement v2.0, with modifications
Thank you for your interest in an Odoo S.A. (the "Project Leads") open source project. In order to clarify the intellectual property license granted with Contributions from any person or entity, the Odoo Project Leads must have a Contributor License Agreement (the "Agreement") on file that has been signed by each Contributor, indicating agreement to the license terms below. This license is for your protection as a Contributor as well as the protection of the Project, its users, and the Odoo Project Leads; it does not change your rights to use your own Contributions for any other purpose. If you have not already done so, please complete, sign and send the Agreement by:
* Scanning and emailing to cla-submission@odoo.com
**Please read this document carefully before signing and keep a copy for your records.**
You accept and agree to the following terms and conditions for Your present and future Contributions submitted to the Project. Except for the license granted herein to the Project Leads and recipients of software distributed by the Project Leads, You reserve all right, title, and interest in and to Your Contributions.
1. Definitions.
"You" (or "Your") shall mean the copyright owner or legal entity authorized by the copyright owner that is making this Agreement. For legal entities, the entity making a Contribution and all other entities that control, are controlled by, or are under common control with that entity are considered to be a single Contributor. For the purposes of this definition, "control" means (i) the power, direct or indirect, to cause the direction or management of such entity, whether by contract or otherwise, or (ii) ownership of fifty percent (50%) or more of the outstanding shares, or (iii) beneficial ownership of such entity.
"Contribution" shall mean the code, documentation or any original work of authorship, including any modifications or additions to an existing work, that is intentionally submitted by You to the Project Leads for inclusion in, or documentation of, any of the products managed or maintained by the Project Leads (the "Work"). For the purposes of this definition, "submitted" means any form of electronic, verbal, or written communication sent to the Project Leads or their representatives, including but not limited to communication on electronic mailing lists, source code control systems, and issue tracking systems that are managed by, or on behalf of, the Project Leads for the purpose of discussing and improving the Work, but excluding communication that is conspicuously marked or otherwise designated in writing by You as "Not a Contribution."
2. Grant of Copyright License. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, You hereby grant to the Project Leads and to recipients of software distributed by the Project Leads a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, no-charge, royalty-free, irrevocable copyright license to reproduce, prepare derivative works of, publicly display, publicly perform, sublicense, and distribute Your Contributions and such derivative works.
3. Grant of Patent License. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, You hereby grant to the Project Leads and to recipients of software distributed by the Project Leads a perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, no-charge, royalty-free, irrevocable (except as stated in this section) patent license to make, have made, use, offer to sell, sell, import, and otherwise transfer the Work, where such license applies only to those patent claims licensable by You that are necessarily infringed by Your Contribution(s) alone or by combination of Your Contribution(s) with the Work to which such Contribution(s) was submitted. If any entity institutes patent litigation against You or any other entity (including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that your Contribution, or the Work to which you have contributed, constitutes direct or contributory patent infringement, then any patent licenses granted to that entity under this Agreement for that Contribution or Work shall terminate as of the date such litigation is filed.
4. You represent that You are legally entitled to grant the above license. You represent further that each employee of the Corporation designated on Schedule A below (or in a subsequent written modification to that Schedule) is authorized to submit Contributions on behalf of the Corporation.
5. You represent that each of Your Contributions is Your original creation (see section 7 for submissions on behalf of others). You represent that Your Contribution submissions include complete details of any third-party license or other restriction (including, but not limited to, related patents and trademarks) of which you are personally aware and which are associated with any part of Your Contributions.
6. You are not expected to provide support for Your Contributions, except to the extent You desire to provide support. You may provide support for free, for a fee, or not at all. Unless required by applicable law or agreed to in writing, You provide Your Contributions on an "AS IS" BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, either express or implied, including, without limitation, any warranties or conditions of TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY, or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
7. Should You wish to submit work that is not Your original creation, You may submit it to the Project Leads separately from any Contribution, identifying the complete details of its source and of any license or other restriction (including, but not limited to, related patents, trademarks, and license agreements) of which you are personally aware, and conspicuously marking the work as "Submitted on behalf of a third-party: [named here]".
8. It is your responsibility to notify the Project Leads when any change is required to the list of designated employees authorized to submit Contributions on behalf of the Corporation, or to the Corporation's Point of Contact with the Project.

# Sign the Odoo CLA
In order for your contribution to Odoo to be accepted, you have to sign the
Odoo Contributor License Agreement (CLA). More information about this
requirement is explained in the [FAQ](#faq).
## If you are an individual
1. Read the [Individual Contributor License Agreement](icla-1.0.md)
2. Make a pull request on the [odoo/odoo](/odoo/odoo) (or amend an existing
one), adding a new file `<github-login>.md` under the
[`doc/cla/individual`](individual/) directory. If your GitHub login is
`odony`, the file would be `doc/cla/individual/odony.md`. The file should
contain:
```
<country>, <date>
I hereby agree to the terms of the Odoo Individual Contributor License
Agreement v1.0.
I declare that I am authorized and able to make this agreement and sign this
declaration.
Signed,
<name> <email> https://github.com/<login>
```
Replacing the following placeholders:
* `<country>`: your country
* `<date>`: current date in the form `YYYY-MM-DD`
* `<name>`: your name
* `<email>`: your email
* `<login>`: your GitHub login
3. An Odoo R&D Team member will verify and accept your Pull Request. You can
make other pull requests, but we won't be able to merge them until your CLA
signature is merged.
## If you work for a company
1. Read the [Corporate Contributor License Agreement](icla-1.0.md)
2. Make a pull request on the [odoo/odoo](/odoo/odoo) (or amend an existing
one), adding a new file `<lowercase-company-name>.md` under the
[`doc/cla/corporate`](corporate/) directory. If the of the company is Odoo,
the file would be `doc/cla/corporate/odoo.md`. The file should contain:
```
<country>, <date>
<company-name> agrees to the terms of the Odoo Corporate Contributor License
Agreement v1.0.
I declare that I am authorized and able to make this agreement and sign this
declaration.
Signed,
<name> <email> https://github.com/<login>
List of contributors:
<name> <email> https://github.com/<login>
```
The List of contributors should list the individual contributors working
for the company.
Replacing the following placeholders:
* `<country>`: your country
* `<date>`: current date in the form `YYYY-MM-DD`
* `<name>`: your name
* `<email>`: your email
* `<login>`: your GitHub login
3. An Odoo R&D Team member will verify and accept your Pull Request. You can
make other pull requests, but we won't be able to merge them until your CLA
signature is merged.
## If you dont have a github account
If you cannot submit your signature using a pull request, you may alternatively
print the CLA, complete it, sign it, scan it and send it by email to
`cla-submission` `at` `odoo.com`. In that case someone from the Odoo team will
make the pull request on your behalf.

# FAQ
## Why do i need to accept a CLA ?
The goal of having a Contributor License Agreement for Odoo is to:
* clearly define the terms under which intellectual property (patches, pull
requests, etc.) have been contributed to the Odoo project
* protect the Odoo project and its users in case of legal dispute about the
origin or ownership of any part of the code
* protect the Odoo project and its users from bad actors who would contribute
and then try to withdraw their contributions or cause legal trouble, e.g. in
the form of patent lawsuits
This is done by establishing a credible, non-repudiable record that each
contributor really intended to contribute to the Odoo project under specific
terms, and they had the right to make those contributions.
The CLA is for the protection of the contributors, the project and its users.
It does not change your rights to use your own contributions for any other
purpose.
The Odoo CLA is based on the Apache Software Foundation CLA v2.0, as
can be found on the Apache website.
This CLA is not a copyright assignment, it is a pure license agreement. You
keep the full copyright for your contributions, you simply provide an
irrevocable license to the project maintainer, Odoo S.A. to use, modify and
distribute your contributions without further restrictions.
## How does it work?
Each individual contributor (making contributions only on their own behalf) is
required to sign and submit the Individual Contributor License Agreement
(ICLA) of Odoo. The agreement is executed by adding your name and
signature to the list of validated contributors inside the project source code.
If someone is unable to sign the CLA, their contributions will have to be
removed from the Odoo project.
In addition, if some or all of someone's contributions are written as part of
an employment by somebody else, the work may not belong to the contributor but
to your employer, depending on the contract terms and local laws. In that case
the employer needs to sign the Corporate Contributor License Agreement (CCLA),
including the names of all contributors allowed to make those contributions in
order for those contributions to be accepted.
The contributors should still sign the Individual CLA, in order to cover the
contributions that do not belong to the employer.
Contributors who have signed the ICLA without a CCLA from their employer should
be very careful.
The ICLA (section 4) is a legal declaration where the contributor states they
have the right to make the contributions. These contributors should only
submit contributions they are really entitled to license.
