It seems the author of JSON-lib removed the "shall be used for Good, not Evil" license in 2009  because in 2006 Douglas Crockford released a version of the json.org library licensed under the Apache-2.0 license to allow its integration with the Apache Abdera project . In the Abdera repository the NOTICE file  contains this note:
"This software's extensions module contains a JSON writer for Atom XML that utilizes a JSON parser, Copyright (c) 2002, json.org. The code was licensed using Apache License by the author Douglas Crockford and made available at http://json.org/java/apache.zip We have included portions of the code in the extensions module." The URL http://json.org/java/apache.zip no longer works, but there are confirmations this URL contained an Apache licensed version of the library  and a copy of this file is hosted by the Fedora project . This confirms the json.org code used in JSON-lib is legitimately licensed under the Apache-2.0 license.  http://sourceforge.net/p/json-lib/bugs/87/  http://markmail.org/message/tgugrzi2unaowerh  https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/abdera/java/branches/0.3.0-incubating/NOTICE  http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/www-legal-discuss/201007.mbox/%3caanlktimxlavjzcvsoeujmd7frwde-1zn9sqaswzqf...@mail.gmail.com%3E  http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/repo/pkgs/json/apache.zip/8f822e604866f92fde5c7b3f67b66809/apache.zip __ This is the maintainer address of Debian's Java team <http://lists.alioth.debian.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/pkg-java-maintainers>.
