      Description

      I found another potential license issue. In incubator-cordova-wp7/templates/standalone/cordovalib/Commands/ImageExifHelper.cs at line 14 it includes a comment saying "Portions of this code are based on..." and it gives the URL to a blog at codeproject.com. The blog has a reusable code library, and in turn points to a CPOL license ( http://www.codeproject.com/info/cpol10.aspx ) for its content.

      According to http://www.apache.org/legal/resolved.html#category-a , the CPOL license may NOT be included with Apache projects.

      I'm not seeing an obvious copy-and-paste, so it is unclear if there is code reuse or if it was used as reference documentation. Perhaps the person who committed this to ImageExifHelper.cs could answer that question.
