Description (last modified by Mateusz Łoskot)

gdal/data/ecw_cs.dat: Derived via much processing from ERMapper GDT definitions, rights unclear.

It would be desirable to obtain permission from Leica allowing distribution, or some sort of legal clarification indicating this sort of use of their definitions is acceptable under the law.

Due to the unclear licensing of this file, it's been excluded from the gdal Debian package. (Debian Bug#721343)

Has there been any contact with Leica to resolve the unclear rights?
