Apache Project Proposing New Licensing

2003-11-11 08:22

Apache Project Proposing New Licensing (OSDir) with new Apache License, version 2.0, Apache RI License, version 1.0 (Reference Implementation), Apache TCK License, version 1.0 (Testing Compatibility Kit of a Java Specification Request), Contributor License Agreement (CLA), Corporate CLA and Software Grant. The proposed 2.0 license deals with patent licensing and revokes it if sued.

The thread discussing this on debian-legal has so far had no indication that these are DFSG-free mostly due to the patent termination clause. The implication is that nothing licensed by this can be used in Debian GNU/Linux.
