Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-343) Can we use brand icons in Apache NetBeans, specifically browser icons?
Date Thu, 09 Nov 2017 10:24:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-343?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16245470#comment-16245470

Geertjan Wielenga commented on LEGAL-343:

It needs to be examined on a case-by-case basis. I.e., the Safari trademark may have one kind
of license, while the Chrome trademark may have a different license, etc.

> Prior to the donation, Oracle removed a number of files from the donation zip. We are
tracking those changes [here|https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/NETBEANS/Donation+changes+to+be+reviewed].
> For each of the changes we're trying to figure out what to do. Most of it is trivial.
Stuff which couldn't be donated by Oracle because it wasn't theirs to give away, but which
can be part of Apache NetBeans if acceptable license, with proper attribution, etc.
> One of the file sets removed by Oracle is *browser icons*. This is tracked by JIRA issue
> Question: Would there be any problem in putting such brand icons back into Apache NetBeans?
> The question isn't about the  _specific_ art-work we've chosen to use. We may choose
something else than in the JIRA issue. It is more general about the use of brand / trademark
icons, in this case browser icons.
