OWL Test Cases:Copyrights
From OWL Test Cases
The licensing terms for all content contributed to this site are specified below. Do not submit material if you do not agree to those terms.
Goals and purposes
This introductory section is only informative.
The content on "OWL Test Cases" is meant to be used freely, and is therefore published under a Creative Commons license. This license covers test case data, but also all other content that might be found on this site. The license allows contributed content to be modified or used for derivatory works by other contributors, as long as the original author and source is attributed.
In addition, test cases that are contributed before the finalization of the OWL 2 Conformance and Test Cases document may be published by W3C using the licenses for W3C test suites. For each contributed test, this is only possible if
- the OWL working group considers and approves the test case (as described in Conformance and Test Cases), and
- each author of the test case is either a member of the OWL Working Group, or has agreed to the Policies for Contribution of Test Cases to W3C.
Note that the latter requires authors to fill out an online form. It is possible to contribute test cases without filling out this form, but they cannot be published in conjunction with the official W3C document in this case. The working group might try to contact contributors for filling out this form, so it is useful to provide at least some contact information on the author's wiki page (linked from each test by that author).
