Grant of License

In order for us to include any software from outside Argonne into EPICS, our lawyers require us to get written legal permission to do so from the organization that paid for the development of that software. That permission usually takes the form of a signed Grant of License (Grant), the standard text of which is given below. Recent versions of this Grant are written to cover constributions to EPICS Base and any related products, so we should only need to have the form signed once by each organization.

If we have asked you to arrange for a Grant to be signed, you will have to find someone who will be legally entitled to do so for your organization. Fill in the form below and press the Generate button, then print out the resulting page and have them sign and date it, then fax it to us.

No information submitted in this form is recorded or retained by our web server, the form only exists to allow users to create a printable document for signature.
