That is the key point. I had understood that you grant an unlimited,
perpetual licence to do anything - and that you could only do this if you
had the rights to do so; in other words you could not possibly agree to the
terms if you didn't have full ownership of what you were contributing.
But if what is meant is that you grant an unlimited licence as far as your
own rights are concerned - but you don't make any representation about other
rights that might apply to your contribution - then this must be made clear.
I would suggest that there be two sections, (1) Your own rights in the
contribution, and (2) Rights held by third parties.
