> I'm in the process of fixing copyrights in the some of the Flex code Adobe is about to
contribute to ASF.  Adobe Legal will not allow us to contribute the code until all the copyrights
have been updated.   I've read thru all the ASF legal docs I can find but the answers to these
questions aren't obvious to me. 
> 1)  Many of the tools print out a one-line copyright similar to:
> Adobe Flex Compiler (mxmlc)
> Version 4.6.0 build 0
> Copyright (c) 2004-2011 Adobe Systems, Inc. All rights reserved.
> or we have localized strings like this which need a one-line copyright:
> StartMessage=Adobe ASDoc \n${buildMessage}\nCopyright (c) 2004-2011 Adobe Systems, Inc.
All rights reserved.\n
> I couldn't find the equivalent in the Apache license information but I did find in https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-124
the suggestion of
> "Copyright (C) 2012 The Apache Software Foundation. Subject to Apache License 2.0.".
> What should I use?
> 2)  We have some Batik and Velocity files, under Apache license, which we've modified.
 Currently the code has the original ASF license as well as an Adobe copyright..  How should
this case be handled?
> 3)  We have some old unmodified Apache sources which have an older Apache license (pre
2.0).  Do we leave the old license or should it be upgraded to a 2.0 license?
