Challenging water and technology experts to work together and create innovative solutions to today's global water problems

Technology Licensing for Water Hackathon Projects

October 6, 2011

As we get closer to the Water Hackathon, we would like to share with you our policy on technology licensing. We believe in giving participants the most freedom possible in selecting a license, balanced with the freedom of others to use and adapt developed technologies according to their needs.  

In keeping with policy of our partners at Random Hacks of Kindness (RHoK), we have decided to follow their requirements:

  1. Projects must be licensed under an OSI approved license. While you are free to choose any license, we recommend using one listed as “Licenses that are popular and widely used or with strong communities”.
  2. Projects must have their code posted on a publicly available code repository. GitHub and Google Code are popular choices.

Should you have any questions about our policy, please let us know in the comments below.
