Licenses-09.- If I subcontract the development of a Hontza module, can it be a Private Module?

In general, if someone subcontracts the development of a Hontza module, the work is done in his/her name and the terms of the contract usually assign the authorship rights of the software to him/her.

The contract terms also specify that the subcontractor won't liberate the code without permission of the contractor.

In brief, the final situation is the same as if it was developed internally.

The most frequent questions about GPL license confirm that it is allowed to make developments by subcontractors and that this practice is not considered as a distribution of the developments.
