code contributions are usually only accepted if the contributor agrees to let the company do whatever they want with the code. This is standard procedure in the OSS world. There is nothing complex about it. the Linux Kernel is an exception to this rule, which is why it is stuck at gpl v2 even if Linus wanted to make it gpl v3. There was a big discussion of this when gpl v3 was being drafted.

It is much easier to suggest solutions when you know nothing about the problem.
