The Maven License Verifier Plugin is a Maven plugin that is intended to check the licenses of artifacts managed by Maven. This can be done during the build process, you can choose to let the build fail if an artifact with a wrong license is used. The licenses are categorized by a definition file that lists them with their different URLs and names. This can be different from project to project.
