- KEY IDEA: Unless expressly stated by the member, all projects are assumed to be covered by CREATIVE COMMONS - NON-COMMERCIAL - ATTRIBUTION license.
- ACTION: Create a "Partnership Document" for official Xinchejian partners
- This should be a standard document. Signatures required for official partners.
- KEY IDEA: Avoid companies taking advantage of the work / IP of Xinchejian members. They should attribute ideas to Xinchejian and the specific member. If the work is commercial, expectations are to offer some help to the community.
