This project's policy is to gather copyright assignments from all
contributors. All the copyright belongs to the FSF. If someone is to be
sued, it is the FSF.

If a contributor works for a company or university or whatever who might
potentially argue that the copyright of the contributor's work belongs
to the company, we ask the contributor to get an appropriate document
from the company.
