Intellectual Property Policy White Paper
Intellectual Property Policy
This information is predicated on the assumption that the OWEA will become a part of the W3C. As such, it is assumed that the intellectual rights policies of the W3C will apply to works of OWEA and participants in that endeavor. Should this not happen, this section will need to be reviewed/ revisited in light of an alternate organizational model.
Those submitting work within OWEA should be aware of the following notes:
Copyright - the original owner of the document retains copyright, but agrees to the W3C license for redistribution of those materials. Additionally, "W3C documents can be redistributed or republished on the condition that you provide information so that others can easily find the original document, that you provide notice of the W3C's copyright, and that if the document has a "STATUS" section, you reproduce it." source - Section 5
We recommend that anyone submitting work to OWEA review the W3C Intellectual Rights FAQ page prior to submitting their work.
