Legal Basis

We are committed to share results in an open society. Using, developing and distributing Free Software has taught us a new paradigm of building networks and businesses. Our approach is documented in the book Open Source Initiative Vorarlberg.

General terms and conditions

For doing business with us, we have summarised the rules in the document 'General Terms of Business and Delivery'. For the delivery of software, we use the  'General Terms and Conditions for the Sale and Delivery of Organizational and Programming Services and Permission to Use Software Products', which have been issued by the Austrian Chamber of Commerce / UBIT. Their terms on copyright and use (§6) are replaced by additional provisions lined out in our 'General Terms of Business and Delivery' to comply with the rules of GPLed software.

Statutes of the International Media Co-op can be found in the co-op section.


Our software and content products are being shared using GPL or Creative Commons licenses.

We are currently observing the development of a European Open Source License, which behaves like GPL, but fixes some legal flaws in the European legal system.
In future, we may be offering a fiduciary license model to our co-op members, to to make OSalliance their fiduciary for all legal issues.

We have been also supporting the adaption of the Austrian Creative Commons licenses in co-operation with the Institut für Rechtsfragen der Freien und Open Source Software.
