Infastructure documents

Ericsson makes students contests (already for a few years in Russia). So some legal and advertising documents to support the contest were made. And it could be a good thing if these docs were put in public domain (can 'some rights reserved' term be applied here?) as templates. Other companies can reuse this bundle of documents customizing it to particular conditions, corporate rules etc. The positive effect is that there is no need in doing basic work (developing all from the scratch). Is it another application of patterns idea initially approached by Alexander in architecture areas and then taken by software architects? 'Contest documents' pattern?

There are few Free Content Licenses (e.g. GNU Free Documentation License and Creative Commons License). So why not to apply some for the mentioned docs?
