Nick Burch reopened TIKA-1804:
------------------------------

The ASF legal team have recently changed their mind on the license (see https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/9627a9278d263378a2045d4bffccb6e83b9f01bb783c6dd6fa325faf@%3Clegal-discuss.apache.org%3E),
so we'll now need to change this

> Hi
> Your project is licensed under Apache License Version 2,
> but your code pulls in code from json.org under Douglas Crockford’s bad licence [1]
, and is non-free [2].
> Such usage restriction makes the license incompatible with The Open Source Definition
and
> The Free Software Definition. Because Tika binary distribution includes this software,
> it effectively becomes proprietary software itself.
> You may also comment that the json.org license is valid for You but for many Linux distributions
it is not acceptable.
> I hope to continue to maintain Tika for Fedora, without having to run into these problems.
> Please try to replace it with one of the many free alternatives.
> Regards
