Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-301) Attribution for Apache 2.0
Date Thu, 25 May 2017 23:09:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-301?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16025529#comment-16025529

Roy T. Fielding commented on LEGAL-301:

There is no default attribution requirement, just as there is no requirement of a copyright
notice in copyright law if the owner has no interest in suing for infringement.

If the copyright owner wishes to require attribution, they can choose to create a NOTICE file
containing such an attribution. The license only requires that the NOTICE be retained once
it has been placed (which has the effect of requiring the attribution be retained).

> Hi, where in the Apache 2.0 license does it indicate that I need to retain attribution
notices (assuming there is not NOTICE file) for binary copies I distribute (but have not modified)?
I intend to attribute regardless but would like to understand exactly where it appears in
the license. Many thanks.
