Subject [jira] [Commented] (LEGAL-422) Develop strategy & budget for next 5 years - Legal PMC
Date Sun, 10 Feb 2019 22:56:00 GMT

Henri Yandell commented on LEGAL-422:
-------------------------------------

Adding more info from the 5 year plan:

* ... we provide project spaces and resources for like-minded communities to flourish, produce
and release software under our legal umbrella.

* We provide legal and brand management services to our projects based on demonstrated needs,
and define branding guidelines to help our projects benefit from the strong Apache brand in
an appropriate way.

* The ASF is fortunate to have pro bono legal counsel available that meets most of our legal
advice and representation needs. The exception to this is trademarks-related costs, which
we are no longer able to acquire as a pro bono service. We need, therefore, to develop a strategy
and budget for this expense.

* In 2017, we made good progress getting better definition on practical and legal aspects
of the sponsorship program.

* We considered a proposal in 2017 to form a revenue-generating joint venture, managed via
a separate legal entity.

* The (finance) plan, as currently formulated also does not include the increments in funding
suggested above for Community Development, nor does it separate a legal defense reserve.
