Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-77) What does "appropriately labeled" mean?
Date Tue, 22 Nov 2011 21:26:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-77?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13155443#comment-13155443

Robert Burrell Donkin commented on LEGAL-77:

Derivative works need to distribute the NOTICE. So, it's important to keep labeling to that
which is required for legal purposes. For many (but not all) weak copyleft licenses, a reference
to the source is  required. This needs to be in the NOTICE.

Licenses should be included for everything shipped. Projects are free to choose to do this
within a single LICENSE document or through individual licenses for each artifact included.

AIUI "appropriate labeling" is aimed at letting consumers know that this release contains
copyleft works. Like cryptography, this should be in a README.

> The Legal FAQ page says that binary code under a category B license "may be included
in binary form within an Apache product if the inclusion is appropriately labeled:" but gives
no hints as to how to provide such labelling.
