If the artifacts are intended to be distributed and used  
independently (as apparently these jars are, as well as any jars  
uploaded to e.g. maven's distribution mechanism) they should have  
NOTICE and LICENSE files in their contents as well. They would belong  
in the top level or in the META-INF directory of the distribution jar/ 
zip files.
