it is enough that your company reads all the licenses of the libraries 
in the /legal directory that come with cocoon and complies to the 
restrictions that they impose when redistributing the code.

That's it.

We are trying to address the problem of people believing that it's 
enough for them to say "this includes software by the ASF" and fail to 
comply to those other licenses, so if they get sued, they sue us back 
for not having been clear about how we license our stuff and blame us.

I personally think it's just SCO-induced paranoia and can be addressed 
with a big "red blinking sign" but hey, I'm not the lawyer and I'm not 
the one who gets to decide those things.
