Re: Status of the picture book



Nicu,

Whatever, none of this applies to you, I don't think. Either way, we are going to go ahead and set something up so people can start uploading pictures and just continue from there...

Frankly, companies usually use clauses like this to dissuade individuals from suing them. Effectively, by signing the document the company and individual agree to the location of any possible lawsuit and what type of law that is to be applied. In the United States each state has its own law. Some states' law is more favorable for certain positions than others. For example, many corporations use Delaware as their state of incorporation because it is seen as having a body of state law that is more corporation friendly.

Mike,

I fully understand that, but I am living in the EU and most likely will never get into Delaware, so the chances of me going into Delaware to sue Red Hat are ZERO. And why I would prefer a corporate-friendly law in Delaware instead of a citizen-friendly law from Europe?

And I guess I can claim at any time that not being a native English speaker (even more, not having *ever* learned English formally) I didn;t fully understood what I signed. You know, a citizen-friendly European law may be helpful here :p

I'm coming into this a bit late, but I couldn't help but wonder if there was any discussion with Red Hat legal concerning inserting a choice of law and choice of forum clause in the Model and Contribution release. By adding these clauses, the signee would agree to litigate the issue by the specified law (New York, Delaware, etc.) and location (presumably most easily accessible for Red Hat/Fedora legal department). I would be happy to whip something together and pass it along. (Disclosure: I am an attorney licensed to practice in Michigan).

I am a potential photographer living in the Europe, the people posing for me will be most likely from the EU, what do we should care about states in the USA?
