How Does The Ethical Collaboration Community Agreement Help Me?

The Ethical Collaboration Community Agreement helps you in several ways:

  1. The Agreement protects you from inadvertent loss of your intellectual property.  “Loose lips sink ships” – but not when everyone in the room has signed the Agreement.
  2. The Agreement allows you to give – and receive – help and advice in a collaborative way.  Everybody who signs the agreement agrees to give advice and help without strings.
  3. If there are any problems that occur between members, we all agree to use mediation and arbitration – not lawyers – to settle any problems.

You are not obligated or restricted by the Agreement.  You are free to collaborate – or not – as you see fit.
