Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-263) Boilerplate license acceptable for binary distribution?
Date Sat, 09 Jul 2016 15:46:10 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-263?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15369149#comment-15369149

Dennis E. Hamilton commented on LEGAL-263:
------------------------------------------

Are you distributing an installer or a direct executable?  If your executable does an installation,
the normal procedure is to put copies of LICENSE and NOTICE (.txt on platforms that need that)
in the folder where the product is installed.  The About can link to those.

Is this executable attributable to an Apache project or to yourself as an individual or downstream
producer?  For an Apache Project a different notice may be appropriate.  For yourself/downstream,
be sure to check with the origin project PMC with respect to identification and branding of
your distribution.

> I'm distributing an executable deliverable, and in the "About" screen I list the 13 line
boilerplate from the bottom of http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0.  However, in section
4a of the license I see that I'm obligated to "give" a copy of the license along with the
application.  Does this mean I should put the entire license into my About screen?
