Who Owns the IP?

What is the fresh code rule?

All code developed as part of Kerala Road Safety Hackathon must be fresh. Before the start of the Kerala Road Safety Hackathon, attendees may create wireframes, designs and user flows. They can also come with hardware. But to keep things fair, all code must be written onsite at the Kerala Road Safety Hackathon. Other than that, almost anything goes and you can use any coding languages or open-source libraries.
