Spine Event Engine Contributor License Agreement
This agreement is between You (as defined further below) and TeamDev Ltd. (TeamDev), the owner and developer of the Spine Event Engine framework (the “Framework”).
This agreement is needed in order to clarify the intellectual property license granted with Contributions from any person or entity. If you are a contributor, whether an individual developer or a company, please sign this agreement via the appropriate form below. By filling the form you consent to these license agreement terms. This license is for your protection as a contributor as well as the protection of TeamDev, the Framework and its users; it does not change your rights to use your own Contributions for any other purpose.
You accept and agree to the following terms and conditions for Your present and future Contributions submitted to TeamDev. Except for the license granted herein to TeamDev and recipients of the Framework, You reserve all right, title, and interest in and to Your Contributions.
“You” (or “Your”) shall mean the copyright owner or legal entity authorized by the copyright owner that is entering into this Agreement with TeamDev. 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 TeamDev for inclusion in, or documentation of the Framework. For the purposes of this definition, “submitted” means any form of electronic, verbal, or written communication sent to TeamDev or its representatives, including but not limited to communication on electronic mailing lists, by email, or via source code control systems that are managed by, or on behalf of, TeamDev for the purpose of discussing and improving the Framework, but excluding communication that is conspicuously marked or otherwise designated in writing by You as “Not a Contribution.”
“CLA” shall mean this Contributor License Agreement.
Grant of Copyright License.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, You hereby grant to TeamDev and to recipients of the Framework 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.
Grant of Patent License.
Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, You hereby grant to TeamDev and to recipients of the Framework 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 Framework, 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 Framework. 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 Framework, constitutes direct or contributory patent infringement, then any patent licenses granted to that entity under this Agreement for that Contribution or Framework shall terminate as of the date such litigation is filed.

You represent that each of Your Contributions is Your original creation (see section 6 for submissions on behalf of others).
