Somebody is cleaning up SO and deleting posts (here and here). Instead is should have been moved here but I can't comment / edit / move it, so here is the question:
I know that sun/oracle stopped working on its jai_imageio libs a long time ago. Now if someone would still be using it - what license does it have? I checked it and it doesn't seem to be a standard one like apache/BSD or the like. Can anyone shed some light on it? Is it compatible with other standard licenses like Apache, BSD or LGPL? Is it deferred/similar to other known licenses?
