Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-970) Full identification of the JPEG 2000 family of formats
Date Fri, 03 Aug 2012 15:27:02 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-970?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13428183#comment-13428183

Jukka Zitting commented on TIKA-970:

Normally when we directly copy code or data from other projects we record that explicitly
in our [LICENSE.txt|http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/tika/trunk/LICENSE.txt] file (see for
example the entry about MIME type info from the file command). The licenses that are deemed
acceptable for such use are outlined in http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html.

In this case though it seems like you've just applied information acquired from the upstream
source. Since facts can't be copyrighted and the amount of information used is below what
I think could reasonably be claimed to be a database covered by copyright (unlike our use
of the MIME type registry of the file command), I don't believe there's any need for extra
licensing apart from what you already did above.

> Please find attached a suitable set of magic definitions for allowing Tika to identify
JP2 containers, codestreams, and the JP2, JPF, JPM and MJ2 file formats. It is based on the
'file' magic from [here|https://github.com/bitsgalore/jp2kMagic], and has been tested against
the example files supplied on that site.
