Deposition License Agreements

When a resource provider (aka. "depositor") wants to include a new resource into the CLARIN domain, a specific deposition license agreement must be made between the depositor and the CLARIN centre that will host the resource.

In the deposition agreement, the depositor also specifies the license(s) with which the resource will be distributed to end-users. Depending on the category under which the selected end-user license falls (see previous section), a minimal set of access conditions have to apply. These conditions are stated in the following three model agreements; additional or more specific conditions can also be agreed upon between the centre and the resource depositors. So, the minimal model agreements below can be used as checklists.

In order to help depositors select the most appropriate license(s) for their resource, the CLARIN License Category Calculator suggests the most fitting license category based on a series of user-made choices relating to the contents and the intended use(s) of the resource.
