LGPL libs can be distributed. As long as you use dynamic libs and you do not modify the Qt libs you are on the safe side.

And please: No speculations on licensing topics (“I think…”). It is too delicate and does more harm than help.

The video is available here [qt.nokia.com]

Thanks for the link! Very interesting video and quite enlightening. Unfortunately, I did not get the answers I was looking for the two first questions in

http://developer.qt.nokia.com/wiki/LicensingQuestions

Maybe the comments at

http://blog.qt.nokia.com/2009/11/30/qt-making-the-right-licensing-decision/

should open again? ;)

I will remind her of the wiki again. Maybe we can get some answers based on the questions directly. No promises though, she’s doing all she can.

Thanks in advance Alexandra! I think that the answers two these questions are very important for non-legal-expert-qt-developers, so we will be looking forward for answers.

By the way, IMHO, Cristy is doing a great job! The video http://qt.nokia.com/developer/learning/online/talks/developerdays2010/qt-in-use/breakfast-seminar-qt-licensing-explained was very insightful. :)

I don’t want to open new topic, and I don’t know if these are told somewhere else, so…

What about licences of Qt related stuff but not in the repository by Nokia? This particular case I have is related to Qt logo(not actually stealing image from Qt site but just using the logo), but maybe there is others, maybe mainly art in the sites.

Sorry if I’m asking something too obvious… Like, the logo is available in git repo? :)

That leads me to another question: can I count on that everything in the Qt repos are licenced under LGPL/GPL?

For the logo: Guidelines are on the logo download [qt.nokia.com] page

For the files in the repos: They should have a license statement on the top (some of them are from other sources and may have another license!)

Pictures and format restricted files can’t really have the licence, though… Maybe in meta tag, but those are cumbersome to look at, if they even exist.

They may have a README in the directory they live on… Hard to say, some of the Troll’s license specialists should better comment on this. Maybe it’s better to start a new thread for this, so that it gets some attention.
