Keeping with the spirit of a BSD-style license, Digi grants registered users to this site access to, and right-to-use posted source code content on this Python developer site. In other words, you can incorporate code on this Site into your projects. This right does not extend to other Digi sites that contain Digi intellectual properties.

For code submissions that demonstrate functionality to the extent that their implementation warrants a copyright of authorship, the contributor should include the following copyright information at the top of their code submission:
