>         Environment: Linux all

> Hi,
> Fedora [1] is a popular distribution of the Linux operating system, and
> we wish to include the latest version of ActiveMQ Artemis [2] in our OS. 
> Fedora only contains Free and Open Source licensed works.
> Your project is licensed under Apache License Version 2,
> but your code pulls in code from under Douglas Crockford’s bad licence [3],
and is non-free [4].
> Such usage restriction makes the license incompatible with The Open Source Definition
> The Free Software Definition. Because ActiveMQ Artemis binary distribution includes this
> it effectively becomes proprietary software itself.
> You may also comment that the license is valid for You [5] but for many Linux
distributions it is not acceptable.
> Hoping in the future to be able to use ActiveMQ Artemis in Fedora, without having to
run into this problem.
> Please try to replace it with one of the many free alternatives.
> Regards
> [1]
