Qt license

AppStudio for ArcGIS is based on Qt 5.6.0. However Qt itself is usually licensed under LGPL. It means if we publish our Android APP via Google Play store or Apple’s App Store, the final user must be able to replace the Qt Libraries. No one would do this for a mobile APP, but these are the rules which make sense if Qt is used for Device Creation in embedded market.

So I am wondering that in case of we would sell or distribute commercial apps using AppStudio for ArcGIS, if the license of Qt creator included in the AppStudio is totally proper according LGPL. Or if maybe the version of Qt included in AppStudio uses a commercial license instead the LGPL one. I don't know.

 

Anybody knows something about it?
