Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-363) Use CC-BY-4.0 HTML and CSS in Example code
Date Wed, 21 Feb 2018 19:53:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-363?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16371920#comment-16371920

Alex Harui commented on LEGAL-363:


I will interpret your answer as saying that HTML and CSS is not media but rather, source code.

At this point, the general consensus in Royale is to manage the examples as an Extra.

However, I would like to know more about the part of the Cat B section in Legal Resolved
that talks about "small amounts of source code".  IMO, small amounts of CC-BY in an example
of usage of the release as opposed to the operational code in the release, doesn't limit distribution
any more than binary Cat-B, especially if appropriately labelled.

>             Project: Legal Discuss
>          Issue Type: Question
>            Reporter: Alex Harui
>            Assignee: Chris A. Mattmann
>            Priority: Major
> Apache Royale would like to use CC-BY-4.0 HTML and CSS in two of our examples in order
to show that Royale can work with a third-party library under CC-BY-4.0.
> We propose to add comments to the HTML and CSS (and LICENSE) to indicate that certain
files contain HTML and CSS under CC-BY-4.0.
> AIUI, the ASF concern about CC-BY-4.0 is due to a usage restriction and the risk of source
code containing both ALv2 and CC-BY content spreading to other people's code without their
full understanding of the usage restriction.  We think use of CC-BY in this example will
primarily be used by people using the CC-BY library and thus already under the usage restriction
so risk is low.
