Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-394) Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.1 Japan (CC BY-SA 2.1 JP) in Apache project
Date Fri, 27 Jul 2018 16:04:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LEGAL-394?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16559942#comment-16559942

Henri Yandell commented on LEGAL-394:
-------------------------------------

For an 'image' that looks good to me (with the link, which it lokos like you have). I don't
think the "As for use, please confirm about credit" should be there; it creates a second license-like
statement.

One thing that worries me here though is that this isn't an image, this looks like it is an
Apache logo. My two thoughts there are:

1) You need a lot more trademark language on that page. While CC-BY-SA may apply to the copyright
on the image, use of the image is likely to be more restricted by our rules on our trademarks.
People are not free to use our logos/trademarks for any use.

2) I wonder if, policy-wise, we want to be stronger on logos and require that we have Apache
2.0 licenses on such things. i.e. the right thing here might be to go to the author of the
logo and request an Apache 2.0 license.

How did this image become the mascot; what's the history?
