New Rackspace Policy Encourages Employees to Contribute to Any Open Source Project

According to a blog post by Rackspace’s VP on Intellectual Property Van Lindberg, its policy previously required employees to check with its IP Committee/legal department before contributing. However, it found that over the past three years, there were no cases where its employees (or Rackers) came to the department with unreasonable requests.

Now, “Rackers are free to contribute to and participate in any public open source project of their choice that has an established open source license,” Van Lindberg said.
