Subject IDEA patent issue with bcprov in repo on ws zone?
Date Tue, 08 Jan 2008 16:50:58 GMT
There is a copy of the bouncycastle library in the Maven repo at  
http://ws.zones.apache.org/repository2 and on previous occasion I've  
been advised by legal-discuss against using the standard distribution  
at Apache due to the IDEA patent clause in its license[1]. There has  
been talk about getting a version from BouncyCastle without the IDEA  
code in it and I was wondering if this was such an unencumbered  
version. I did a quick look through and it does look like the IDEA  
code is present.

Thanks
Jeremy
