I realize that this is addressing a completely different point, but if 
you take a look at the license for either JNDI or JavaMail, you will see 
that item (i) in the second supplimental license term in the Sun 
Microsystems, Inc. Binary Code License Agreement reads:

"Sun grants you a non-exclusive, non-transferable, limited license to 
reproduce and distribute the Software in binary form only, provided that 
you (i) distribute the Software complete and unmodified and only bundled 
as part of your Programs"

This makes the following non-compliant with the license:

http://www.ibiblio.org/maven/jndi/jars/
http://www.ibiblio.org/maven/javamail/jars/

The interesting question is: who is liable?
