My Signed, Cross Licesned Sun Microsystems Blog License

Sun Microsystems was a very, very forward looking company.  A great example of this was Sun strongly encouraging employees to blog.  I, along with a few hundred Sun employees, were regular bloggers at  I was very pleased to see Sun come out with a cross license blogging agreement for Sun's bloggers in September of 2009.   This was a win/win decision by Sun that would allow the content a Sun employee created while at Sun to be cross licensed.  I thought it was very nice and very forward looking for Sun to do this prior to Oracle acquiring Sun.  Below are both pages of my signed blog license with Sun Microsystems.  Why did I do this?  Just in case I am ever asked if I have a Sun Blogger License Agreement by Oracle, I can simply point them at this entry.
