For more information on complying with a specific license, please consult select a license for a non-European list you need to make. Many proprietary libraries that you can license have very heavy licensing conditions; certainly much longer and more complex than the LGPL. Z.B. the information requirements that have put MediaCoder in trouble are often exactly the same (which is why so many programs have “included an implementation of the LZW algorithm” or “uses Bink video technology” or “built with the Unreal engine” or that Creative Sound Codec I forgot the name on their Splash screens and in their information boxes). Heck, the advertising clause in the original BSD license (clause 4) is much heavier than anything else in the LGPL. Of course, the creators of these libraries don`t say “We give you free legal advice, but only if you do your whole open-source program” – but that`s because they don`t offer you free legal advice at all, they expect you to understand and respect the license you have from them. And you often have to give them access to z.B audits so they can confirm that you are complying with the license (and that you are paying the fees correctly if you use a library for which you pay royalties per usage). The BSD/MIT is the agreement between the original developers and binary suppliers. There is no BSD/MIT between you and binary providers. If the whole company gives you a binary source, but no source, I don`t think there can be BSD/MIT. So if someone gives you what`s called BSD/MIT, it will be open source without a string.

This end-user license agreement (“EULA”) is between Sharpened Productions (“Enterprise”) and you, the end user, for the use of File Viewer Lite or File Viewer Plus (the “Software”), as specified below.
