comment Modifying GPL program to expose internal functions for use in non-GPL program
Unless an alternative exists it would be easy to argue that your program is a derivative work.

comment Modifying GPL program to expose internal functions for use in non-GPL program
Is your proprietary program usable and useful without the GPL program? If not, your code might be considered a derivative work.

comment Using code under Apache 2.0 License in my program using MIT License
@MemphiZ If the derivate work you create is licensed under the Apache 2 license you must follow the requirements of Section 4. Redistribution It is very clear what you must do. If you want to mix licenses it is not at all clear what you must do.

comment Using code under Apache 2.0 License in my program using MIT License
Is there a reason you don't want to use the Apache License for your work? Apache and MIT are functionally nearly the same. (The apache license has some patent right grants that the MIT license is missing). Having a single license will make things much easier for you and any potential users.

comment Add GPL to an existing application
In the US at least, if you have no license for your code it is implicitly covered by copyright with "All rights reserved." Code without a license may not be used without permission.

comment GPLv3 frontend and BSD backend, do I have to disclose the backend source?
I agree, but the opinion that matters is the copyright holder, they are the only entity that can take legal action. Of course, after they take legal action the court's opinion is the one that matters.

comment Using an LGPL licensed library that may or may not include GPL licensed code from an MIT licensed library
Does the MIT licensed library work without libRaw? If not, it could be argued that the unnamed MIT licensed library is actually a derivative work of libRaw.

What are you trying to achieve? Why can't you just use plain PHP code?

comment How to comply with LGPL 2.1 source-code request?
Which is probably fine on Linux or OSX or Windows but iOS does not allow the user to replace shared libraries.

comment How to comply with LGPL 2.1 source-code request?
Be aware that the LGPL (section 6.a) requires that you distribute unlinked object code for a work that is linked with LGPL code. This is to allow the end user to modify the library and relink with your code. So the next request you get may be for the unlinked object code.
