Apple Apple has bought the CUPS code base, and has hired it's lead developer. "CUPS was written by Michael R Sweet, an owner of Easy Software Products. In February of 2007 Apple Inc. hired Michael and acquired ownership the CUPS source code. While Michael is primarily working on non-CUPS projects, he will continue to develop and support CUPS, which is still being released under the existing GPL2/LGPL2 licensing terms."

This is a good example of why I would NEVER contribute code to a project that requires copyright assignment.


So you would never contribute to:

OpenSolaris
The Apache Project
MySQL
Any Free Software Foundation Projects

etc?

I don't think you realise that in this day of lawsuits that copyright assignment is the only defense a project has against the evils of this world.
