Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-75) Public domain code clarification
Date Sat, 26 Nov 2011 13:17:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-75?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13157471#comment-13157471

Robert Burrell Donkin commented on LEGAL-75:

Sebb - Good catch 8-)

There are four cases all ORs. Please see if the updated content is clearly. If not then an
alternative approach would be to write out all cases fully (accepting the duplication) - or
just jump in with a suggested improvement.

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

>            Assignee: Robert Burrell Donkin
> 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].
