Re: [] New IP Process [Was - Re: 11-Aug AC meeting notes]

So that sounds like everybody is simply moving to Type A (or least can without any disadvantage). 

I am still unsure I understand what the benefit of Type B will be if Type A has „enough“ protection.

No I don't know of such a company (which doesn't mean it doesn't exist :)).

So you just answered the other thought that we discussed at the AC meeting, "it looks like no company actually needs the super-strict policies in place today". The comparison with the Apache Foundation clearly does help.

Let’s assume that my company wants to re-distribute Type B software only, because we want to make extra sure to avoid any lawsuits or other hidden risks down the road.

Such a company does not exist. I know of no companies that are serious adopters of open source who do not ship software from the Apache Software Foundation. The due diligence levels of Type A exceed those of the ASF.

Do you have an existence proof of a company that ship code from the Eclipse Foundation but refuses to ship code from Apache?
