I have a customer uploading data to our embedded device. This data is compressed using LZO compression.
I know there is GPL code available, and correct me if I'm wrong, but using that would require us to GPL all the application software in our embedded device.
I have found an explanation of what the decompressor does here and it seems (fairly) simple.
So can I just write my own LZO decompressor routine without getting swept up in the LZO GPL license?
