GPLv3 Linking Exception for plugin

Recommended Posts

I wanted to use GPLv3 for my plugin source code. However i had to write down a linking exception so that it is allowed to link it with closed source libraries.


 * The copyright holder give you permission to...
 * ... link this library against the libraries provided by Paint.NET
 *     copyright holders for plugin development.
 * ... dynamically load this library in Paint.NET.


Do you think that are the right words?

Sorry, but you need to ask the GPL or open source folks what to do for this.


We are not lawyers. We can't, and shouldn't, give you an answer on this.
