Subject [jira] Created: (LEGAL-43) DOM4J license
Date Sun, 22 Feb 2009 19:29:01 GMT
DOM4J license

                 Key: LEGAL-43
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-43
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Question
            Reporter: Jukka Zitting

The DOM4J library (http://www.dom4j.org/) is available under a BSD-style license (http://www.dom4j.org/dom4j-1.6.1/license.html)
that contains the following clause:

    5. Due credit should be given to the DOM4J Project - http://www.dom4j.org

Should this be interpreted similarly as the advertising clause in the original BSD license?
This clause seems weaker than the original advertising clause, but given the concerns of OSI-compatibility
of such clauses I would like to better understand our position on this.

Can an Apache project include the DOM4J library in a release? If yes, what would constitute
the required "due credit"?
