Very nice.

If you didn't take the chance to read all of it, at least read the last
section:

http://www.informit.com/articles/article.asp?p=175171&seqNum=7

"A person can commit copyright infringement even without knowing that the
work was subject to copyright, so even unintentional infringers don't get
a free pass under copyright law. Thus, the open source community's success
requires that every contributor understand copyright law and provide only
non-infringing code. A single bad apple can spoil the barrel."

A nice reminder about keeping our own ASF code repository clean and clear.
