Subject: RE: xCBL license? (was) RE: need help


You are right that xCBL was developed by Commerce One. The key part of the
license text that states that it is available on an unrestricted basis is
the following ...

>>>Commerce One, Inc. hereby grants to all users of the Common Business
Library (xCBL) DTDs, schemas, and modules (the "Specification"), a
perpetual, nonexclusive, royalty-free, worldwide right and license to use,
publish, copy, modify and distribute the Specification.<<<

The full text of the license is available at

I hope this helps.

PS I agree that the text is hard to find as there is no link from the home
page. We need to fix this.

     David, perhaps I'm out of date.  I thought xCBL was owned by and 
proprietary to your company.  I have seen statements along the lines of 
"Commerce One is making xCBL available at no cost" at xcbl.org, but I have 
not been able to find the "unrestricted open license" to which you 
refer.  Can you direct me to a URI?

Thanks.  Jamie Clark
