Legal/Copyright?

Random stuff about the contest, posts that don't fit in the other forums.

Legal/Copyright?

Postby Terr » Thu Sep 16, 2010 1:11 am

I know most of the stuff being used is open-sourced, but I just realized that the main website is missing a piece of standard boilerplate: The legal stuff about what rights you grant (or not) when it comes to submitted material, source code, etc.

I have thought about this a bit before. Keep in mind that I am not a lawyer.

My understanding is that in the absence of an agreement that states otherwise, if you produce a work then you also implicitly own the copyright to that work. So contestants implicitly own the copyright to their own source code. This means that the contest staff are not allowed to publish the contestants' submitted source code. Since I am fine with that the way it is, I saw no need to make people sign away their rights.

Maybe somebody knows a high-flying IP lawyer who can comment on this issue. I find that taking legal advice from random people on the internet is a really bad idea. Since I am myself a random person from the internet, I try to abstain from expressing legal opinions as well.

I just want to be clear that I'm not particularly concerned--I doubt I'll make any groundbreaking stuff even if I finally get my bot ready--but that it's a point of ambiguity and some folks might get pretty annoyed if their AI is, say, copied into somebody's iPhone app.
