Adobe Copyright text in the code

Avatar

Level 2

Hello,

There is usually a copyright text that is contained in many core components files and clientlibs js.txt and css.txt classes like below :

<!--/*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Should we keep the copyrights if we are overriding, overlaying or maybe copying some parts of code for one of our clients.

One concrete use-case is :

I am developing a proxy image component for a client 'x', where I am referring the core components image component located at

/apps/core/wcm/components/image/v2/image

As part of development, i want to override the image.html of the core component, so should i also put the copyright text in this file

/apps/x/components/content/image/image.html

I was somewhat confused because I was reading the Apache License 2.0 and i read that we should keep the copyright and add comments to the copyright text on what was added

Also, for the js.txt and css.txt files in the clientlib we always have a copyright, even the we retail implementation has that. Are we supposed to have that copyright text even if we create a new clientlib for a new custom component ?

Regards,

Karan Sharma

Best practice would be to keep the copyright when you override code.
