Subject [jira] Created: (LEGAL-42) JSR 173 spec license
Date Sun, 22 Feb 2009 19:07:04 GMT
JSR 173 spec license

                 Key: LEGAL-42
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-42
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Question
            Reporter: Jukka Zitting

BEA makes the JSR 173 (Streaming API for XML 1.0) specification and the related API jar file
available under the terms of the JSR 173 specification license. The license text is available
for example at http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/javax/xml/jsr173/1.0/jsr173-1.0-license.txt

As far as I can tell the license only grants the right to download and use the specification
for internal evaluation purposes (section 1). Compliant implementations can be relatively
freely distribute compliant implementations of the spec (section 2), but I'm wondering if
that license extends to the API jar file and whether the granted redistribution rights are
good enough for Apache.

My question is: Is it OK for an Apache project to include the JSR 173 API jar file as a part
of it's releases along with an implementation of the standard?
