Subject Re: [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-304) BSD3 with nuclear clause
Date Tue, 04 Jul 2017 17:59:05 GMT
I am one of the current jai-imageio-core caretakers after it was abandoned

interpretation of its license; as pointed out in this thread there is not
an actual restriction of nuclear use, just that the user have to

course true for most of ASF's products)

I would welcome VP Legal support of such an interpretation that this
particular nuclear note is not a field of use restriction and to allow the

(Would it be worth noting this "acknowledge" statement somehow in the
NOTICE of consuming ASF products,, to ensure its re-propagation in binary
distributions of Tika?)
