Subject [jira] [Created] (LEGAL-330) Inclusion of code from WebRTC (3-clause BSD plus PATENTS)
Date Tue, 19 Sep 2017 18:52:00 GMT
Todd Lipcon created LEGAL-330:

             Summary: Inclusion of code from WebRTC (3-clause BSD plus PATENTS)
                 Key: LEGAL-330
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-330
             Project: Legal Discuss
          Issue Type: Question
            Reporter: Todd Lipcon

The Kudu project would like to import a small chunk of utility code sourced from WebRTC: https://chromium.googlesource.com/external/webrtc/+/master/api/array_view.h

The license is 3-clause BSD plus a PATENTS file: https://chromium.googlesource.com/external/webrtc/+/master/PATENTS

The PATENTS file seems to be a fairly standard: if you sue us over patents in this source
code (and only in this source code) you will lose your grant to any other patents covered
by this source code (and only in this source code). This seems quite similar to Apache's patent
language, but wanted to double check that inclusion of this code is permissible.

(note that it's virtually impossible that the particular file in question is covered by any
patents, since it's basically "trivial" to recreate for any C++ programmer, we just wanted
to save time by borrowing this one)
