Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-199) W3C Document License and format transformation
Date Thu, 03 Apr 2014 06:43:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-199?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13958566#comment-13958566

Sergio Fernández commented on LEGAL-199:
----------------------------------------

The extraction of the RDFa embedded in the document as Turtle does not transform the data,
it's just a format change. But according to the FAQ that could be considered derivative work:
http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Legal/IPR-FAQ-20000620#format

This is a very special case were both document and test data are the same document. But I
think what Andy suggests is the best option to avoid other issues. I've just asked to W3C:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-ldp-wg/2014Apr/0006.html . I'll come back as soon
as I have news.

> For implementing a W3C technology in Marmotta, we are taking the test cases from there:
> * The original HTML+RDFa document is https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/ldpwg/raw-file/default/Test%20Cases/LDP%20Test%20Cases.html
> * And this is the generated RDF content in Turtle we are caching for implementing our
test suite: http://www.w3.org/2012/pyRdfa/extract?uri=https%3A%2F%2Fdvcs.w3.org%2Fhg%2Fldpwg%2Fraw-file%2Fb3683634c29f%2FTest%2520Cases%2FLDP%2520Test%2520Cases.html&rdfa_lite=false&vocab_expansion=false&embedded_rdf=true&validate=yes&space_preserve=true&vocab_cache_report=false&vocab_cache_bypass=false
> The document, so the data, is under W3C Document License: http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Legal/2002/copyright-documents-20021231
> Which contains a paragraph which could be problematic:
> {quote}
> No right to create modifications or derivatives of W3C documents is granted pursuant
to this license. However, if additional requirements (documented in the Copyright FAQ) are
satisfied, the right to create modifications or derivatives is sometimes granted by the W3C
to individuals complying with those requirements.
> {quote}
> The question is: the RDFa->Turtle format transformation is considered a modification?
We'd need clarification on this.
> Thanks in advance.
