I confess I am ignorant about open source software licensing and am trying to understand it better.
I work for a retailer that has an ecommerce site. Our ecommerce site is built in-house and uses various open-source libraries.
I am struggling to understand how the licenses of our third-party libraries pertain to us. For example, if we use a library licensed under GPL v2, what does this mean to us?
I have read the GPL v2 as well as discussions about it, and it is still unclear to me what exactly constitutes "distributing" or "copying" licensed software.
