I passed the JDOM license onto our corporate legal dept., and got this risk
1. No warranty: JDOM software is provided "as-is". If it doesn't work, you
have no recourse.
2. No indemnity: You have no protection against intellectual property
claims against the JDOM software. If a patent claim is brought against JDOM
code, <the company> is subject to unlimited liability for infringement.
<the company> may have limited liability clauses with our customers that
might limit our exposure for what we sell, but <the company> faces unlimited
liability for what <the company> makes. (Commercial code provides <the
company> with indemnities that allow <the company> to escape such liability
to certain extents.)
3. No Support: Support for JDOM software may become a big problem once a
<the company> product is introduced to market and its design team is
reassigned to other projects.
