OpenID Foundation Membership

The OpenID Foundation (OIDF) was formed in June 2007 to help promote, protect and enable the OpenID technologies and community. This entails managing intellectual property, brand marks as well as fostering viral growth and global participation in the proliferation of OpenID. The OIDF does not dictate the technical direction of OpenID; instead it will help enable and protect whatever is created by the community.

If you (or your organization) would like to help OpenID make the Internet a better place, become involved and join the Foundation. The OpenID Foundation Member Agreement for review.
