Dear Elmar,

I just wanted to add to the advice of not writing new licenses, that part of
the problem that you are trying to address can be solved by requiring a
contributor agreement before merging contributions into your software's main
line.  See for instance <https://owncloud.org/contribute/agreement/>.
