For questions about the GNU Lesser General Public License, how to apply it, or how to re-use works under this license

The LGPL, or GNU Lesser General Public License, is a basic software license offered by GNU, which is sponsored by the Free Software Foundation (FSF). It differs from the GPL in that libraries licensed under the LGPL can be used in proprietary programs. The FSF recommends not using the LGPL for new libraries.
