Symbian Foundation membership documents now available

Filed under: membership, Symbian Foundation — David Wood @ 12:12 pm

Anyone interested in the process for becoming a member of the Symbian Foundation can now download and view the relevant set of documents here.

These documents comprise:

  • An electronic membership application form;
  • A copy of the Symbian Foundation Licence (applicable to the source code in the Symbian Foundation Platform until such time as that code becomes available under the Open Source Eclipse Public Licence);
  • The Symbian Foundation membership rules;
  • The Symbian Foundation trademark and compliance policy;
  • The Symbian Foundation patent policy;
  • The memorandum of association of Symbian Foundation Limited;
  • The deed of adherence which an organisation must sign to become a member;
  • The member contribution agreement (applicable to those organisations that may wish to contribute code to the Symbian Foundation Platform).

Many congratulations to the team who have worked so hard to prepare these documents for publication!

There’s a lot of information in these documents. If anyone has questions, the first place to look is the online FAQ.


  1. Since a number of individuals may well be subscribed either to this or the Foundation blog it may be a good idea to state how / when individuals may join as at the moment it has a very strong “corporate only” VIBE.

  2. Absolutely, it would be nice to know when/if/how individuals and the self-employed can take part.

  3. @cholten99, @Neon,

    Individuals will be able to interact with many aspects of the Symbian Foundation website and the Symbian Platform code, without needing to belong to an organisation that is a member of the Symbian Foundation.

    For example, all code packages that are released under the open source Eclipse Public Licence will (of course) be accessible to all individuals. Also, many of the forums hosted on the website will be publicly accessible.
