Subject Compatibility question: Amazon Software License
Date Wed, 26 Mar 2014 23:17:20 GMT

We recently received a patch to add support for the Amazon Kinesis data source in Apache Spark,
which uses the following library: https://github.com/awslabs/amazon-kinesis-client licensed
under the Amazon Software License: https://aws.amazon.com/asl/. Would it be okay to have a
Maven dependency on this library in an Apache project? From a quick look at the license, it
seems reasonable, but I’d like to double-check this with legal. The one restriction that
may be strange is "3.3 Use Limitation. The Work and any derivative works thereof only may
be used or intended for use with the web services, computing platforms or applications provided
by Amazon.com, Inc. or its affiliates, including Amazon Web Services, Inc.”.

Thanks a lot,
