Explanation of Project Jupyter copyright policy#
Project Jupyter uses a shared copyright model. Each contributor maintains copyright over their contributions to Project Jupyter. These contributions are typically only changes to the repositories. Thus, Project Jupyter source code, in its entirety, is not the copyright of any single person or institution. Instead, Project Jupyter source code is the collective copyright of its contributors. If individual contributors want to maintain a record of what changes or contributions they have specific copyright on, they should indicate their copyright in the commit message of the change when they commit the change to one of the Project Jupyter repositories.
With this in mind, the following banner should be used in any source code file to indicate the copyright and license terms:
# Copyright (c) Project Jupyter Contributors. # Distributed under the terms of the 3-Clause BSD License.
