JPEG 2000 es no-libre.

<anibal> if a license limits you to not change the format of a file, is it dfsg compliant?
<asuffield> doubt it
<anibal> I'm reading http://bugs.debian.org/293346
<asuffield> jpeg 2000. I know how this is going to go
<anibal> that's right
<asuffield> yup, standard jpeg 2000 "forking is banned" license
<asuffield> we've seen that one before
<asuffield> utter joke it is
<anibal> may I quote your comment?
<asuffield> if you must, but the one you're looking for is the old jasper license
<asuffield> I think that one actually got unfucked in the end
<asuffield> few years ago on -legal
<asuffield> the basic problem is that it precludes the possibility of there ever being a jpeg 2006
