> CAN APACHE PRODUCTS INCLUDE WORKS LICENSED UNDER THE JSON LICENSE?
> No. As of 2016-11-03 this has been moved to the 'Category X' license list. Prior to this,
use of the JSON Java library was allowed. See Debian's page for a list of alternatives.

> I'm not actually clear if Spark is using one of the JSON.org licensed libraries. As of
current master (dc4c6009) the java library gets called out in the [NOTICE file for our source
repo|https://github.com/apache/spark/blob/dc4c60098641cf64007e2f0e36378f000ad5f6b1/NOTICE#L424]
but:
> 1) It doesn't say where in the source
> 2) the given url is 404 (http://www.json.org/java/index.html)
> 3) It doesn't actually say in the NOTICE what license the inclusion is under
> 4) the JSON.org license for the java {{org.json:json}} artifact (what the blurb in #2
is usually referring to) doesn't show up in our LICENSE file, nor in the {{licenses/}} directory
> 5) I don't see a direct reference to the {{org.json:json}} artifact in our poms.
> So maybe it's just coming in transitively and we can exclude it / ping whoever is bringing
it in?
