  • Page 168 Appendix We call this license the "Lesser" General Public License because it does less to protect the user's freedom than the ordinary General Public License. It also provides other free soft- ware developers less of an advantage over competing non-free programs. These disad- vantages are the reason we use the ordinary General Public License for many libraries.
  • Page 169 Appendix 2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Library or any portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Library, and copy and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions: a) The modified work must itself be a software library.
  • Page 170 Appendix However, linking a "work that uses the Library" with the Library creates an executable that is a derivative of the Library (because it contains portions of the Library), rather than a "work that uses the library". The executable is therefore covered by this License. Section 6 states terms for distribution of such executables.
  • Page 171 Appendix It may happen that this requirement contradicts the license restrictions of other proprie- tary libraries that do not normally accompany the operating system. Such a contradiction means you cannot use both them and the Library together in an executable that you dis- tribute.
  • Page 172 Appendix 12. If the distribution and/or use of the Library is restricted in certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the original copyright holder who places the Library under this License may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded.
