Can I use OpenPDF (unmodified) in my commercial application without distributing the source code of my app?
1 project | reddit.com/r/learnjava | 27 May 2021
IANAL, but if it's this (https://github.com/LibrePDF/OpenPDF) it seems to be LGPL, which means you can use it with a closed source, commercial app. There are additional restrictions however, so it'd be wise to do some more thorough reading around the license and what it allows (and doesn't.)
