Yasser Zamani commented on LEGAL-295:
-------------------------------------

[~creamyg], I agree, thanks a lot, there are good points; however, now, I prefer to not copy
at all. it's simpler ;)

> As an ASF contributor, in one of my pull requests, I copied and merged other ones codes
to an existing ASF project. Both are under same license, Apache License V2, but the other
one code has the below copyright at his file header:
> {noformat}
>  * Copyright 2002-2014 the original author or authors.
> {noformat}
> and existing ASF project has:
> {noformat}
>  * Copyright 2002-2006,2009 The Apache Software Foundation.
> {noformat}
> While the other one code has defined several `@author` tags above his class definition
(rather than any other place e.g. methods and etc) and while our existing ASF project does
not accept `@author` tag:
> # Is it legal to not include `@author` tags and the copyright statement?
> # If no, how to handle this?
> Thanks in advance!
