Re: GPL/LGPL

posts: 59 Belgium

If you make a new work based on a GPL'ed work, the new work has to be also GPL'ed.
That means it is impossible to include GPL in commercial software, so GPL and commercial software are incompatible.

Works based on LGPL work otoh, don't have to be LGPL themselves. So LGPL work can have a much broader possible use.
So LGPL is compatible with LGPL and with commercial licenses. But not with GPL, unfortunately.
