[License Issue] Aliyun(阿里云)'s trace analysis service copied SkyWalking's trace profiling page.
Apache SkyWalking is an open-source APM for a distributed system, Apache Software Foundation top-level project.
On Jan. 3rd, 2023, we received reports about Aliyun Trace Analysis Service. It provides a cloud service compatible with SkyWalking trace APIs and agents.
BUT, they copied the whole page of SkyWalking’s profiling UI, including page layout, words, and profiling task setup. The only difference is the color schemes.
Aliyun Trace Analysis UI on their document page
The UI visualization is a part of the copyright. Aliyun declared their backend is NOT a re-distribution of SkyWalking repeatedly on their website, and they never mentioned this page is actually copied from upstream.
This is a LICENSE issue, violating SkyWalking’s copyright and Apache 2.0 License. They don’t respect Apache Software Foundation and Apache SkyWalking’s IP and Branding.
