Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-137) Ownership of WSDLs and XSDs created by interrogating proprietary web services
Date Wed, 30 May 2012 19:25:23 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-137?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13285938#comment-13285938

Sam Ruby commented on LEGAL-137:
--------------------------------

I'm skeptical that that would be sufficient in itself.

To draw an analogy: on the web any URI can be interrogated to get a representation of the
resource using HTTP GET using a Unix tool called "curl".  Can the content returned by such
a tool be redistributed in original or modified form in an Apache project?

My guess is that the answer will be "it depends", and you would need to either contact the
owner of the service or find out where that service is licensed.

> In the .NET framework, any service can be interrogated to find its Web Services API (represented
by a set of WSDL and XSD files), using a .NET tool called "disco.exe".  My question pertains
to the ownership (or lack thereof) of such WSDLs and XSDs.  Can these be redistributed in
original or modified form in an Apache project?
