Subject [jira] [Created] (LEGAL-295) Merge others codes having same license but different copyrights
Date Tue, 21 Mar 2017 09:15:41 GMT
Yasser Zamani created LEGAL-295:

             Summary: Merge others codes having same license but different copyrights
                 Key: LEGAL-295
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-295
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Question
            Reporter: Yasser Zamani

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:
 * Copyright 2002-2014 the original author or authors.
and existing ASF project has:
 * Copyright 2002-2006,2009 The Apache Software Foundation.
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!
