Is it a violation if I use a GPL library without releasing my code under GPL but the lib is linked dynamically so the binary & source code I distribute does not contain any line of the library? 🤔

@emil I think if you use a GPL Library it becomes part of your program, so your program is also a derivation of that library. Then... Your program becomes GPL.

@gianclgar But like I said I have no GPL code in the repository nor the binary

@emil @emil Hmmm and how does the users get the library? Downloading it separately?

I guess in that case is not a GPL violation as you are not distributing their program, just using it 🤔

Maybe here you can search or ask for more info

@gianclgar Yes the user installa the library manually

@emil I'm not an expert but it feels completely correct for me
