our projects manage the technical implementation of their individual software products independently,

 <p>We’re happy to have third parties, including for-profit corporations, take
our software and use it for their own purposes – even when in some cases it may technically
compete with Apache software. However it is important in these cases to ensure that the brand
and reputation of the Apache project is not misused by third parties for their own purposes.
It is important for the longevity and community health of our projects that they get the appropriate
credit for producing our freely available software.</p>
