Subject Derby & new copyright notice policy
Date Thu, 03 Aug 2006 20:29:17 GMT
Derby is trying to follow the new copyright policy detailed in


Based upon a (the?) previous policy detailed here:


Derby source files have the following form of copyright notice:

   Copyright [yyyy] The Apache Software Foundation or its licensors, as

It's understood these should be removed, but legally with this shared(?)
copyright notice who do we have to get permission from to remove them
(or ask to remove the notices themselves)?

   - Everyone who has modified the file is some significant way ?
   - and IBM if a significant portion of the file is from the original
IBM contribution ?

     - no-one because the law is weak on shared copyright

     - no-one due to some good legal reason.

Thanks for any input,
Dan. (IANAL)
