Subject RE: svn commit: r1181165 - /incubator/ooo/trunk/main/LICENSE
Date Mon, 10 Oct 2011 20:32:12 GMT
Although there seems to be some confusion in this area, I thought the LICENSE file should be
the Apache ALv2 license document alone and the NOTICE file includes all of the third party
stuff (as well as a simple ALv2 claim for the overall combination).

I don't disagree with removing dependencies that Apache OOo doesn't have (any longer).  I
am just surprised they are in LICENSE.

-JUnit test library (junit-3.8.1.jar)
-
-    Common Public License - v 1.0
-
-    THE ACCOMPANYING PROGRAM IS PROVIDED UNDER THE TERMS OF THIS COMMON
-    PUBLIC LICENSE ("AGREEMENT"). ANY USE, REPRODUCTION OR DISTRIBUTION
-    OF THE PROGRAM CONSTITUTES RECIPIENT'S ACCEPTANCE OF THIS AGREEMENT.
-
-    1. DEFINITIONS
-
-    "Contribution" means:
-
-    a) in the case of the initial Contributor, the initial code and
-       documentation distributed under this Agreement, and
-
-    b) in the case of each subsequent Contributor:
-
-       i)  changes to the Program, and
-
-       ii) additions to the Program;
-
-       where such changes and/or additions to the Program originate from
-       and are distributed by that particular Contributor. A Contribution
-       'originates' from a Contributor if it was added to the Program by
-       such Contributor itself or anyone acting on such Contributor's behalf.
-       Contributions do not include additions to the Program which: (i) are
-       separate modules of software distributed in conjunction with the
-       Program under their own license agreement, and (ii) are not derivative
-       works of the Program.
-
-    "Contributor" means any person or entity that distributes the Program.
-
-    "Licensed Patents " mean patent claims licensable by a Contributor which
-    are necessarily infringed by the use or sale of its Contribution alone
-    or when combined with the Program.
-
-    "Program" means the Contributions distributed in accordance with this
-    Agreement.
-
-    "Recipient" means anyone who receives the Program under this Agreement,
-    including all Contributors.
-
-    2. GRANT OF RIGHTS
-
-    a) Subject to the terms of this Agreement, each Contributor hereby grants
-       Recipient a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free copyright license
-       to reproduce, prepare derivative works of, publicly display, publicly
-       perform, distribute and sublicense the Contribution of such
-       Contributor, if any, and such derivative works, in source code and
-       object code form.
-
-    b) Subject to the terms of this Agreement, each Contributor hereby grants
-       Recipient a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free patent license under
-       Licensed Patents to make, use, sell, offer to sell, import and
-       otherwise transfer the Contribution of such Contributor, if any, in
-       source code and object code form. This patent license shall apply to
-       the combination of the Contribution and the Program if, at the time
-       the Contribution is added by the Contributor, such addition of the
-       Contribution causes such combination to be covered by the Licensed
-       Patents. The patent license shall not apply to any other combinations
-       which include the Contribution. No hardware per se is licensed
-       hereunder.
-
-    c) Recipient understands that although each Contributor grants the
-       licenses to its Contributions set forth herein, no assurances are
-       provided by any Contributor that the Program does not infringe the
-       patent or other intellectual property rights of any other entity.
-       Each Contributor disclaims any liability to Recipient for claims
-       brought by any other entity based on infringement of intellectual
-       property rights or otherwise. As a condition to exercising the rights
-       and licenses granted hereunder, each Recipient hereby assumes sole
-       responsibility to secure any other intellectual property rights
-       needed, if any. For example, if a third party patent license is
-       required to allow Recipient to distribute the Program, it is
-       Recipient's responsibility to acquire that license before
-       distributing the Program.
-
-    d) Each Contributor represents that to its knowledge it has sufficient
-       copyright rights in its Contribution, if any, to grant the copyright
-       license set forth in this Agreement.
-
-    3. REQUIREMENTS
-
-    A Contributor may choose to distribute the Program in object code form
-    under its own license agreement, provided that:
-
-    a) it complies with the terms and conditions of this Agreement; and
-
-    b) its license agreement:
-
-       i)   effectively disclaims on behalf of all Contributors all warranties
-            and conditions, express and implied, including warranties or
-            conditions of title and non-infringement, and implied warranties
-            or conditions of merchantability and fitness for a particular
-            purpose;
-
-       ii)  effectively excludes on behalf of all Contributors all liability
-            for damages, including direct, indirect, special, incidental and
-            consequential damages, such as lost profits;
-
-       iii) states that any provisions which differ from this Agreement are
-            offered by that Contributor alone and not by any other party; and
-
-       iv)  states that source code for the Program is available from such
-            Contributor, and informs licensees how to obtain it in a
-            reasonable manner on or through a medium customarily used for
-            software exchange.
-
-    When the Program is made available in source code form:
-
-    a) it must be made available under this Agreement; and
-
-    b) a copy of this Agreement must be included with each copy of
-       the Program.
-
-    Contributors may not remove or alter any copyright notices contained
-    within the Program.
-
-    Each Contributor must identify itself as the originator of its
-    Contribution, if any, in a manner that reasonably allows subsequent
-    Recipients to identify the originator of the Contribution.
-
-    4. COMMERCIAL DISTRIBUTION
-
-    Commercial distributors of software may accept certain responsibilities
-    with respect to end users, business partners and the like. While this
-    license is intended to facilitate the commercial use of the Program,
-    the Contributor who includes the Program in a commercial product offering
-    should do so in a manner which does not create potential liability for
-    other Contributors. Therefore, if a Contributor includes the Program
-    in a commercial product offering, such Contributor ("Commercial
-    Contributor") hereby agrees to defend and indemnify every other
-    Contributor ("Indemnified Contributor") against any losses, damages
-    and costs (collectively "Losses") arising from claims, lawsuits and
-    other legal actions brought by a third party against the Indemnified
-    Contributor to the extent caused by the acts or omissions of such
-    Commercial Contributor in connection with its distribution of the
-    Program in a commercial product offering. The obligations in this
-    section do not apply to any claims or Losses relating to any actual
-    or alleged intellectual property infringement. In order to qualify,
-    an Indemnified Contributor must: a) promptly notify the Commercial
-    Contributor in writing of such claim, and b) allow the Commercial
-    Contributor to control, and cooperate with the Commercial Contributor
-    in, the defense and any related settlement negotiations. The Indemnified
-    Contributor may participate in any such claim at its own expense.
-
-    For example, a Contributor might include the Program in a commercial
-    product offering, Product X. That Contributor is then a Commercial
-    Contributor. If that Commercial Contributor then makes performance
-    claims, or offers warranties related to Product X, those performance
-    claims and warranties are such Commercial Contributor's responsibility
-    alone. Under this section, the Commercial Contributor would have to
-    defend claims against the other Contributors related to those
-    performance claims and warranties, and if a court requires any other
-    Contributor to pay any damages as a result, the Commercial Contributor
-    must pay those damages.
-
-    5. NO WARRANTY
-
-    EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, THE PROGRAM IS PROVIDED
-    ON AN "AS IS" BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, EITHER
-    EXPRESS OR IMPLIED INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTIES OR
-    CONDITIONS OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT, MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR
-    A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. Each Recipient is solely responsible for
-    determining the appropriateness of using and distributing the Program
-    and assumes all risks associated with its exercise of rights under this
-    Agreement, including but not limited to the risks and costs of program
-    errors, compliance with applicable laws, damage to or loss of data,
-    programs or equipment, and unavailability or interruption of operations.
-
-    6. DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY
-
-    EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, NEITHER RECIPIENT NOR
-    ANY CONTRIBUTORS SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT,
-    INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING
-    WITHOUT LIMITATION LOST PROFITS), HOWEVER CAUSED AND ON ANY THEORY OF
-    LIABILITY, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR TORT (INCLUDING
-    NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE) ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THE USE OR
-    DISTRIBUTION OF THE PROGRAM OR THE EXERCISE OF ANY RIGHTS GRANTED
-    HEREUNDER, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
-
-    7. GENERAL
-
-    If any provision of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable under
-    applicable law, it shall not affect the validity or enforceability of
-    the remainder of the terms of this Agreement, and without further
-    action by the parties hereto, such provision shall be reformed to the
-    minimum extent necessary to make such provision valid and enforceable.
-
-    If Recipient institutes patent litigation against a Contributor with
-    respect to a patent applicable to software (including a cross-claim or
-    counterclaim in a lawsuit), then any patent licenses granted by that
-    Contributor to such Recipient under this Agreement shall terminate as of
-    the date such litigation is filed. In addition, if Recipient institutes
-    patent litigation against any entity (including a cross-claim or
-    counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that the Program itself (excluding
-    combinations of the Program with other software or hardware) infringes
-    such Recipient's patent(s), then such Recipient's rights granted under
-    Section 2(b) shall terminate as of the date such litigation is filed.
-
-    All Recipient's rights under this Agreement shall terminate if it fails
-    to comply with any of the material terms or conditions of this Agreement
-    and does not cure such failure in a reasonable period of time after
-    becoming aware of such noncompliance. If all Recipient's rights under
-    this Agreement terminate, Recipient agrees to cease use and distribution
-    of the Program as soon as reasonably practicable. However, Recipient's
-    obligations under this Agreement and any licenses granted by Recipient
-    relating to the Program shall continue and survive.
-
-    Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute copies of this Agreement,
-    but in order to avoid inconsistency the Agreement is copyrighted and may
-    only be modified in the following manner. The Agreement Steward reserves
-    the right to publish new versions (including revisions) of this Agreement
-    from time to time. No one other than the Agreement Steward has the right
-    to modify this Agreement. IBM is the initial Agreement Steward. IBM may
-    assign the responsibility to serve as the Agreement Steward to a suitable
-    separate entity. Each new version of the Agreement will be given a
-    distinguishing version number. The Program (including Contributions) may
-    always be distributed subject to the version of the Agreement under which
-    it was received. In addition, after a new version of the Agreement is
-    published, Contributor may elect to distribute the Program (including
-    its Contributions) under the new version. Except as expressly stated in
-    Sections 2(a) and 2(b) above, Recipient receives no rights or licenses
-    to the intellectual property of any Contributor under this Agreement,
-    whether expressly, by implication, estoppel or otherwise. All rights in
-    the Program not expressly granted under this Agreement are reserved.
-
-    This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of New York and the
-    intellectual property laws of the United States of America. No party to
-    this Agreement will bring a legal action under this Agreement more than
-    one year after the cause of action arose. Each party waives its rights
-    to a jury trial in any resulting litigation.
