Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-122) IPTC (International Press Telecommunications Council) specification license
Date Tue, 17 Jan 2012 20:29:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-122?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13187972#comment-13187972

Robert Burrell Donkin commented on LEGAL-122:

#3 "Further, upon the receipt of written permission from the IPTC, the Document may be modified
for the purpose of developing applications that use IPTC Specifications"

Bit confused by this WRT "derivative works that comment on or otherwise explain it or assist
in its implementation may be prepared"

Probably best to drop an email to legal internal asking for someone wiser than I to take a

> Apache Tika has recently received a proposed contribution which enhances our coverage
of the IPTC image metadata standard. Part of the patch includes parts of the IPTC specification
in the JavaDocs of the code, describing the uses and values of the metadata fields.
> The IPTC specification license is available on pages 4 and 5 of the spec: http://www.iptc.org/std/photometadata/specification/IPTC-PhotoMetadata-201007_1.pdf
> From reading this, we think it will be OK to use parts of the text in the JavaDocs, provided
that we add a notice in the header of the class, and include the IPTC Spec license in the
project LICENSE file, much as is done with other specifications. Does this seem correct?
> (Commons Sanselan also has IPTC related code, but I don't believe they include specification
text, so are not currently affected by this)
