Kevan Miller commented on LEGAL-193:
------------------------------------

If the file is not ALv2 or similar license (http://s.apache.org/AAk ) and the author/copyright
holder is not willing to relicense the file, you need to remove the file from svn.

> Hi Legal,
> OCW utilizes a piece of code that was found on a Gist [1]. Specifically, the entirety
of the TaylorDiagram class is used. I stumbled upon this when checking that all the project
files had proper headers. There isn't any licensing information that I can find on the Gist.
I've since contacted the author asking if they would be willing to explicitly license their
work, but I haven't received a response. The relevant OCW issue is available at [2].
> What would be the proper course of action in this case assuming the author doesn't respond?
