Subject [jira] [Created] (LEGAL-168) Apache Third-Party IP Policies
Date Tue, 11 Jun 2013 21:26:21 GMT
Lawrence Rosen created LEGAL-168:

             Summary: Apache Third-Party IP Policies
                 Key: LEGAL-168
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-168
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Question
            Reporter: Lawrence Rosen

I'd like to help the Apache community to discuss Apache Software Foundation policies regarding
contributions of copyrighted works from third parties in order for us to publish them at the
Apache website. 

This discussion is now scattered among many JIRA issues and email archives. For example, a
recent thread here reconstructed my own correspondence about this to the legal-discuss@ list
in 2005 -- and then misinterpreted what I'd said then. So I want this new JIRA issue where
I am free to say what I want when I want to say it, without obstruction from issue-jumpers
and list-jumpers around here who try to discourage coherent arguments.

I'll probably be wrong in some of what I say. I will sign my own comments here and I will
read (and perhaps respond to) any comments from anyone who signs his or her name here also.
I will particularly welcome comments from the attorneys on this list, at least those who aren't
too cowardly or too busy to speak up. If you don't enjoy legal controversy, don't read this
JIRA thread.

Best regards,


P.S. More to come....
