Was updating our company docs for our legal purposes and noticed Ramda was a little out of date.
thanks! we should probably add some other names in there as well, but that's another pr
Yes, but there are enough people that perhaps we should find a generic phrase. IANAL. Does anyone know if something as abstract as "Copyright (c) 2013-2016 The contributors to https://github.com/ramda/ramda" would pass legal muster?
@CrossEye that's exactly why i wanted to merge this one quickly :-)
Absolutely. I agree. But if nothing else there's at least one more name that should be on that list. I would love to make it more generic...
And I just don't care that much.
We could add this line:
Copyright (c) 2016 Ramda
I don't know whether this is completely valid, but it's the approach I'm taking with Sanctuary.
I am not a lawyer and you should get a lawyer to look into this
The name used in the license should be the "entity that owns the copyright". In the case of a Github project with multiple contributors, that would be a list of the full names of everyone who ever submitted a pull request. Using "Ramda" would imply that "Ramda" refers to a legal entity, such as a corporation or nonprofit.
