Subject RE: Derby code copyright question
Date Wed, 15 Sep 2004 21:55:44 GMT
I think the short-term (and maybe even long-term) resolution to the 
copyright notice issue may be having the ASF copyright notice in each main 
file clearly apply to the whole project.  This could read, for example:  
"Apache Derby is (c) Copyright The Apache Software Foundation 2004. All 
rights reserved. "  Then there's no implication of copyright ownership of 
individual components.  The third-party copyright attributions can be 
included in the NOTICE file.  As Roy notes, if any contributor has 
included copyright attributions in a main file, and you don't want to 
retain those notices in that location for policy reasons, then ASF needs 
to ask the contributor/copyright owner to either remove them or authorize 
ASF to do so on their behalf.
