I have a few questions about running closed source plugins or standalones on a Linux system (well, about SELLING said plugins and standalones). For the sake of argument, let’s presume that the plugins / standalones are created by someone that owns a full, perpetual Pro Juce license.
If you are using ALSA (LGPL license), does linking to ALSA require the source code of the plugin/standalone to be disclosed under the terms of the GPL?
If you are using Jack (GPL license), does “linking” to Jack require the source code of the plugin/standalone to be disclosed under the terms of the GPL?
Do the “linking” terms of the GPL license apply to closed-source applications that are using GPL audio APIs to communicate with the sound card / codecs?
I am not a lawyer, but I figure that some lawyers must have figured this out for Juce, hence the questions.
Thanks in advance,
