Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-317) Additional material to consider regarding fair use decision in LEGAL-309
Date Tue, 18 Jul 2017 07:56:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-317?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16091247#comment-16091247

Peter Klügl commented on LEGAL-317:

I am also in favor asking the UD community about their opinion on Apache releaseing ASL 2.0
models trained on their data. There are many models available under some license where I have
to wonder (e.g, ASL2 trained on OntoNotes). We should set a good example here at Apache and
do more than is necessary.

What is the worst thing that can happen? Some subprojects of UD state that they do not want
us to provide these models under ASL 2.0? I do not think that all of them will object especially
since there are many different licenses. If we provide the models without asking, they get
to know about them and decide that they do not want that... wouldn't we remove them again?

>            Reporter: Richard Eckart de Castilho
> Regarding the assertion that training models on non-AL data and releasing it under the
AL license, could you please take into account the previous discussion and resolution regarding
the OntoNotes corpus where usage has been denied.

> Can/does the fair use policy decision apply to any data or only under certain conditions?
> Mind that fair use is a US-specific concept. Since ASF products are used globally, what
is the stance of the ASF related to this question in a global context, i.e. with relation
to the risk to users of ASF products in regions outside the USA?
