You accept and agree to the following terms and conditions for Your present
and future Contributions submitted to the Project. In return, the Project
shall not use Your Contributions in a way that is contrary to the public

by contract or otherwise, or (ii) ownership of fifty percent (50%) or
more of the outstanding shares, or (iii) beneficial ownership of such

submitted by You to the Project for inclusion in, or documentation of,
any of the products owned or managed by the Project (the "Work"). For
the purposes of this definition, "submitted" means any form of
electronic, verbal, or written communication sent to the Project or its
representatives, including but not limited to communication on electronic

patent license to make, have made, use, offer to 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.
