I have a proprietary Electron app that we’d like to distribute. However, it has been brought to my attention that there are some potential license problems found in
LICENSES.chromium.html. The offending packages are:
talloc, LGPL v3
Braille Translation Library), LGPL v3
(potentially others, we are still digging through the other licenses)
If the license file is accurate then wouldn’t this be a problem for all Electron applications? I realize Electron is MIT, but it contains LGPL v3 content, how is does this work? Does Electron only dynamically load the
libchromiumcontent object and not link against it, therefore it might be acceptable? I am not a lawyer and I don’t have a deep knowledge in the Electron design–only a new user.
Any information regarding the acceptability of using these LGPL v3 packages within an Electron app would be much appreciated.
