(last week)
  • ACTION: Create a "Terms of Service / Membership" for Xinchejian members
    • This should be a standard, and accepted by all members of Xinchejian during registration
    • 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.


XINCHEJIAN POLICY - Membership - Terms of Service

  • Handle damages and liability
  • Will be incorporated into new website / membership system
  • JIMMY will do research on terms and conditions at hackerspaces
