Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-332) Can we claim fair use for some of our test files?
Date Tue, 17 Oct 2017 04:44:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-332?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16206991#comment-16206991

Andreas Lehmkühler commented on LEGAL-332:

Just for clarification, Roy's comments are about the scanned image we have. But most of the
files are scanned text excerpts (one or two pages out of many). Isn't that something different?

> Levigo has donated their JBIG2 plugin to the PDFBox PMC, see PDFBOX-3906. The source
includes a couple of binary testfiles. All are JBIG2 bitstreams created with different parameters.
The content of those testfiles isn't relevant for the tests itself.
> Some of those testfiles contain copyrighted stuff and the origin project doesn't have
a license to use them. The question is, can we claim "fair use" for those files as
> - most of them just include *one or two* scanned pages of a larger document containing
many more pages
> - one of the files is a dithered *low resolution* image of Ally McBeal aka Callista Flockhart
which can be found all over the internet
> Can we claim "fair use" for those files? And if so, are we allowed to include those testfiles
in our source repository?
