A CLA is important to software developers because if someone installs, downloads or uses a copy of your software application on their computer or mobile device, they essentially create a copy of the copyrighted software. This legal agreement will impose limits and commitments related to the personal use of this copyrighted software. «Licence» refers to the license that the donor issues to the licensee for the use of the software and documentation, in accordance with the terms of this agreement. So it`s important to understand how a business is structured and what rights you really want to provide. If you understand how the «company» is described, it is very important to understand that the rights of the company are generally not translated into unlimited rights of use or provision.
