Automatic licence analyser?!

Boing Boing reports on software that automatically analyses licences. At first Geeklawyer thought this to be a hoax. Analysing an unstructured piece of complex technical text such as a licence to understand, it even approximately, would be a fairly horrendous job. Evidently they merely yank out keywords of interest and offer them up for perusal.

This seems to be entirely useless since you still need to understand what it is you are reading. The package seems better described as a text extraction tool rather than an analysis tool, it doesn’t appear to analyse or explain anything. Javasoft seem to think that they have created something wonderful and they offer it for free.

Just as well, says Geeklawyer who reckons that the Mark One legal eyeball is in no immediate danger.

  1. Its such as you read my thoughts! You appear to understand a lot about
    this, like you wrote the e-book in it or something.
    I feel that you just could do with a few percent to power the message home
    a little bit, but instead of that, that is excellent blog.

    A great read. I will definitely be back.
