The IKS community is formed by those companies and individuals who express their interest in contributing to the IKS project and who subsequently do contribute to the project in one of the ways defined in the IKS Community Agreement. The IKS community acts as stakeholder and communal contributor to the development of IKS specifications, methodology and any implementations of the Interactive Knowledge Stack. The contributions of members of the IKS Community are regulated by the IKS Community Policies.
The Contributor Agreement is used by contributors to share copyright on their contributions with Salzburg Research. The agreement also covers some key patent issues.
