People submit software for service hours at my nonprofit. In terms of a legal form, what kind of things do I need to state and have people to agree to in order for the software to become the property of the nonprofit, but the nonprofit is not held liable for legal issues?
1 Answer from Attorneys
The nonprofit will have liability for the software if the nonprofit owns it. You might want to instead have a world-wide, royalty free, exclusive license with a warranty of rights and indemnification from the submittors.
