The JSPA explicitly grants the right to create Independent Implementations (not derived from the RI.)

Many believe that the Field Of Use language in the SE7 TCK license restricted this right by preventing Apache from releasing their implementation of Java SE.

The JSPA should be modified to clarify whether Field of Use restrictions are permitted.

If FOU restrictions are not prohibited they should be permitted to all.
