Date Tue, 22 Nov 2011 21:08:40 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-75?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Robert Burrell Donkin resolved LEGAL-75.

    Resolution: Fixed

Added new section to http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html along the lines suggested.

Unsure about phrasing, and perhaps more details about attribution might be required. Please
review, and dive in and fix any shortcomings.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-75
>             Project: Legal Discuss

> The Resolved Questions page [1] only mentions Public Domain in connection with Doug Lea's
concurrent library. 
> Public Domain is not specifically listed under any category.
> A concrete example is the code at [0] which says:
> <quote>
>  Written by Brian Goetz and Tim Peierls with assistance from members of
>    JCP JSR-166 Expert Group and released to the public domain, as explained at
>    http://creativecommons.org/licenses/publicdomain
> </quote>
> The CC document [2] linked above includes the words "or Public Domain Certification".
> I think it would be helpful if [1] were updated to clarify whether the inclusion of 
[2] "Creative Commons Copyright-Only Dedication" means that all works "released to the public
domain" are covered, or only works that follow the example above and reference [2].
