Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-304) BSD3 with nuclear clause
Date Thu, 27 Apr 2017 12:43:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-304?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15986530#comment-15986530

Jim Jagielski commented on LEGAL-304:

This is a FOU restriction. As an entity which resigned from the Java JCP and EC primarily
due to imposed FOU restrictions, I would hope that we would not allow our s/w to be so constrained.

It also implies that the license is NOT a real Open Source license and, as a general rule
of thumb, I don't think we should be allowing to use of non Open Source licensed s/w in our

All IMO; my 2c; with my personal hat on; blah blah blah ad nauseum

> On LEGAL-44, a question was asked about whether BSD-3 with the nuclear clause was acceptable?
 Two conflicting opinions were expressed, and the issue was closed because of a change in
the license.
> On TIKA-2338, we'd like to move a a portion of a dependency that was restricted to test-scope
(according to LEGAL-37) to our regular distribution because that portion has been moved to
> However, we noticed that this is BSD-3 with the [nuclear clause|https://github.com/jai-imageio/jai-imageio-core/blob/master/LICENSE.txt].
 Can we include this in our distribution under ASL 2.0?
> Is this a "field of use" restriction (which would lead to a "no" answer) or is this an
"acceptance of no liability" (which would lead to a "yes" answer)?
