There is an NPM package on github geveloped by the company and licensed under MIT.
There is one author listed in
package.json file of this package, and there is a company copyright in the license.
I've made a fork of this project in order to rewrite it for my own needs (not for making the pull request, since the changes are going to be quite heavy). If I understand correctly, I must preserve the existing copyright and can add my own one under it. But what to do with
- Should I list myself as author, and original author as contributor?
- Or should I somehow refer to the company in general?
- Or it is legal to only mention myself here (and leave the reference to company in README, which I feel I must do anyway)?
I have no real experience with FLOSS projects yet, so maybe this question is somewhat incomplete, - in this case, I'll be grateful for pointing out on any missing parts of a picture.
