Subject Re: [jira] [Commented] (CLEREZZA-616) Fix incorrect NOTICE files
Date Sat, 27 Aug 2011 09:40:36 GMT
Hi Tommaso

The code borrowed from the book
[1] is src/main/java/org/apache/clerezza/rdf/core/impl/util/Base64.java
which can be downloaded from [2].
Anyone has experience with the copyright of such code?

I don't think this is a problem. But if this IS a problem, we may use [3]
which is also licensed under ASL v2.0 or higher. I think we first need to
find out whether there is a problem with the license using the borrowed code
 before attempting to made changes to rdf.core using another implementation

By the way, the mulgara code in rdf.core that I use is [4] which is licensed
under ASL v2.0

Cheers
Hasan
