There is an open source project, licensed under Apache License 2.0. It is abandoned, so I would like to fork it, do some significant modifications, and publish it again as an open source project, under Apache 2.
The original project does not contain a LICENSE.txt file, but the author wrote
licence: Apache License 2.0 in the package information file.
I would like to generate a license file, with this template:
Copyright [yyyy] [name of copyright owner] Licensed under the Apache License, Version 2.0 (the "License"); you may not use this file except in compliance with the License. You may obtain a copy of the License at http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0 Unless required by applicable law or agreed to in writing, software distributed under the License is distributed on an "AS IS" BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, either express or implied. See the License for the specific language governing permissions and limitations under the License.
What should I write in the
name of copyright owner section? Both my name and the original authors name? What if there were other contributors too? Is it legal to write something like this?
