I wonder whether the following statements are valid:
When I write a program that uses an LGPL library, I am allowed to
distribute the *sources* of my program under a permissive (non-
copyleft) license like BSD3.
I am not allowed to distribute my program in *binary* form under a
permissive license (even if I release the sources too).
Am I allowed to distribute the sources under BSD3 and the binary under
Would that make sense? Maybe not, because anyone who distributes a
binary of my program or derivative work must license it under LGPL
Underestimating the novelty of the future is a time-honored tradition.
