Subject [jira] Commented: (LEGAL-31) NOTICE/LICENSE and third party products
Date Tue, 25 Aug 2009 10:30:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-31?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12747343#action_12747343

ant elder commented on LEGAL-31:

The prominent listing of all licenses makes sense and matches what Henri said about being
clearly located, and Juka's PDFBox case is one example of where that is not being done. Another
example could be where there is no reference in the LICENSE or README file but the other licenses
are in a top level directory named "ThisIsWhereThe3rdPartyLicensesAre", that seems quite clear
and perhaps even easier to spot than pointing to them from some sentance burried within a

IMHO it seems reasonable to allow a little flexibility so could the policy be written to allow
for that with just something like "3rd party products and their licensing files must be prominent
and clearly located".

> Legal Affairs still doesn't have consensus about whether the LICENSE/NOTICE for an ASF
release should contain links to (or include) LICENSEs/NOTICEs of 3rd party products included
within the release. In any case the LICENSE for the 3rd party product has to be placed near
the product or appended to the main LICENSE file and for some licenses attribution in the
main NOTICE is madatory.
