You should read the fine print very closely, maybe taking a lawyer's
advice into account as well. This has not much to do with ownership
for a Pd patch, actually, it also can also apply to all other kinds of
research and development as well as artistic work. Did you see the
video from Barcelona with Miller's talk? If not, do so and listen
closely to the story Miller tells about IRCAM and Max.
