Re: Tagging of UNCOPYRIGHTABLE material

Karsten Klein

Hi there,

just our two cents...

When looking at a linux distribution we recently ran into the following package text:

"The contents of this package are ineligible for copyright protection."

We decided to identify this explicitly as license 'none'.

It would be great to have an SPDX-ID for such a case. A tool that matches this text can identify the non-existent license with such id.
One would also be able to mark the own files (i.e. config files) with such an identifier.

Connecting such a case to the public domain appears inappropriate to us. It's not quite what the author intended to say.
