Subject [jira] [Created] (LEGAL-259) License issues with protobufs extracted from Apple applications?
Date Sat, 11 Jun 2016 00:40:20 GMT
Tim Allison created LEGAL-259:

             Summary: License issues with protobufs extracted from Apple applications?
                 Key: LEGAL-259
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-259
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Question
            Reporter: Tim Allison

Over on TIKA-1358, we're working to add a parser for the 2013 Apple iWorks files.  We aren't
quite sure what the final solution will be, but a key component will be exporting protobuf
descriptors from Apple's applications, either literally from [obriensp|https://github.com/obriensp/iWorkFileFormat/tree/master/iWorkFileInspector/iWorkFileInspector/Messages/Proto]
or perhaps, in the future, on our own, probably through [protodump|https://github.com/obriensp/proto-dump].

Are there any licensing issues with using those protobuf descriptors to build protobufs for
distribution within an Apache licensed project?

Alternatively, is anyone aware of an API or other means available for parsing these files?
