Subject [jira] [Closed] (LEGAL-263) Boilerplate license acceptable for binary distribution?
Date Sun, 21 Aug 2016 20:49:20 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-263?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Henri Yandell closed LEGAL-263.
    Resolution: Won't Fix


This doesn't seem to relate to an Apache product (ie: the executable deliverable doesn't sound
like it's an Apache product), so the first info is that you should discuss the topic with
your own lawyers (ie: we don't provide legal advice).

I will note that it is common to include copies of Open Source licenses in mobile app attribution.

> 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?
