I'm not sure what "other people" you are referring to. As for 
documentation, you should ask Kim since she probably has the email 
address of the lawyer we were working with handy (although I'm pretty 
sure you can find the OSS board and an email address with a Google 
search). For Disney, same answer - ask Kim, she is the contact point for 
inquiries regarding license etc.
