Hi,
>From [1], it seems the pdf-transcoder.jar in batik contains a colour  
profile with a crazy licence.
 "...permission to use, copy and distribute this file for any purpose is
 hereby granted without fee, provided that the file is not changed
 including the HP copyright notice tag, ... "

The file will need to be removed from the jar, or the jar (and pdf
support) removed from batik :/

thanks,
kk
