All of the source code used in making an Apache OpenOffice distribution is 
available free to the public, in the same manner as the OpenOffice software the 
people directly.

The code can be downloaded, modified (or not) and used to build the programs.  
The use of that code is governed by the Apache License Version 2.0, and some 
parts of the code may be subject to other licenses.  So long as those licenses 
are honored, there is no limitation on what can be done with the code.

The Apache Software Foundation also claims trademark over the name Apache 
OpenOffice,, and many of the other marks, including icons and 
other symbols associated with the Apache OpenOffice product.  Distributing a 
modified version of the software must not be done in a manner that does not 
infringes those trademarks.  

Those who want to use the Apache trademarks in conjunction with a version of 
their own product can make application to the Apache OpenOffice Project 
Management Committee.  See <>.

Dear Sir or Madam,

If anyone who knows programming, can modify and change Open Office, how do you 
maintain control & quality? Or are they only aloud to modify or change a copy 
of their Open Office that they downloaded?

Thank You,
