License?
« on: July 21, 2006, 01:01:47 AM »
Since BASS_FX uses code from SoundTouch that is statically compiled into the library, and SoundTouch is distributed under the LGPL license, isn't BASS_FX also legally required to be distributed under the LGPL or some other compatible license?

Hi ;D

No it's not, you can read all about LGPL and commercial/shareware distributions in this link:
http://answers.google.com/answers/threadview?id=439136

As I do understand, only the LGPLed code is LGPLed and the code that the coder maybe changed/added to the LGPLed code :)
Have fun!
