I want to add some example projects to my repository. However, I have some files with copyright notice. The disclaimer says owned by Xilinx, use at own risk, don't delete copy right notice.
It confuses me, it says it is confidential so I cannot use it? At the same time, if I use it, it is my responsibility. The notice does not mention anything about how the file can or can't be used.
Also, the repository where I pretend to use it does not have a copyright notice ATM. I understand it's a legal question and I doubt we can get a fully competent answer here but if someone could give some explanation how this works, in general?
