redistribution question

Nov 8, 2012 at 6:08 AM

i am new to the apach license 2.0.  if i have a .net project that is referencing the zxing.net dll (without any modification) and am trying to redistribute the project, what exactly do i have to include on my software package?

can anyone give me sample of the file(s)?  and tell me what needed to be modified on the sample file(s)?

thanks.

The original text of the apache license can be found here:
http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0

A good explanation is given by the team of the original java based zxing:

I think the important point is that following:
"A common way to comply, in a product that is delivered only in binary form and not source form (e.g. an application download) is to add a mention of the project, and link to its license (in our view, a link to the project website is ultimately also fine), in a "Help" or "About" screen of the application."

You can find a lot of samples for different target frameworks of .Net in the source code repository.
Look at it and play with it. They are simple and powerful.
