+Not necessarily, though Apache Software Foundation projects

+requires that a <code>NOTICE</code> is retained but if your project contains
only
+original files then you could opt not to have a <code>NOTICE</code>. Please read

+            </p>
+            <p>
+It is polite to include a minimal <code>NOTICE</code>. Otherwise, downstream

+consumers may need to manually verify that no <code>NOTICE</code> exists
