I'm packaging your software for including it in Debian, but have some questions about the copyright:

  • I assume from the LICENSE.TXT file that the company is copyright holder for the software, am I right?
  • It would be nice to have a contact address added to the copyright.



I took a look at

and it doesn't seem to have any requirements for address. I've gone ahead and contacted legal and I have something I can add but I'm not sure where in the license I'm supposed to put an address. Why do you need an address these days?


No, I mainly meant a contact address (e-mail is fine) where we could reach you (for example when github closes or something). Usually it states something like "copyright <year> <name company/person> <e-mail address>".

(update 20/02: fix some markup which treated text as html)


Oh, just noticed that I closed this by accident. They really shouldn't make the close button so big without a method to reopen...


Better late than never, added an email address.
