The purpose of the Contributor License Agreement (CLA) is to establish copyright control under Red Hat, Inc. on behalf of the Fedora Project.  By having a single entity hold copyright:
 
 
 
* It is easier to be more nimble with future relicensing needs
 
* That one incorporated entity can handle being sued
 
* The project can act singularly on the behalf of all the code and documentation without having to make costly and lengthy research into responses from every copyright holder
 
  
All individual contributors to the Fedora Project are required to agree to the Individual Contributor License Agreement and all of their contributions are subject to it.

The purpose of the Fedora Project Contributor Agreement (FPCA) is to ensure that Fedora has acceptable licensing terms for all contributions received.
