"The 2.0 version of the Apache License was approved by the ASF in [January] 2004."

"The goals of this license revision have been to reduce the number of frequently asked questions, to allow the license to be reusable without modification by any project (including non-ASF projects), to allow the license to be included by reference instead of listed in every file, to clarify the license on submission of contributions, to require a patent license on contributions that necessarily infringe the contributor's own patents, and to move comments regarding Apache and other inherited attribution notices to a location outside the license terms.

fuer alle projekte die bisher mit "apache-style" licenses gearbeitet haben, erscheint mir diese neue lizenz als extrem sinnvolle variante.

in so mancher firma muss externe software u.a. auch bezgl lizenz fuer den internen nutzen freigegeben werden. bei "OSI-certified open source software" muss fuer diesen schritt dann nicht extra die rechtsabteilung eingeschalten werden. bisher fielen "apache-style" license aber halt leider nicht unter die "OSI-certified" kategorie fallen (auch wenn wirklich nur das copyright statement geaendert wurde).

ich moechte damit jez gar nicht zum re-licensen bestehender produkte auffordern (das ist oft muehsamer als man glaubt), bei zukuenftigen projekten waere es jedoch schoen, koennten sie von anfang an unter Apache License, Version 2.0 anstelle bisheriger "apache-style" licenses entstehen.

"The purpose of this paper is to provide a rigorous comparison of six query languages for RDF. We outline and categorize features that any RDF query language should provide and compare the individual languages along these features. We describe several practical usage examples for RDF queries and conclude with a comparison of the expressiveness of the particular query languages."
