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.

comment Does distributing GPLd assets with a non-GPL application violate the license?
@DmitryAlexandrov Ah I see I missed the bit about distribution as a whole would be GPL licensed, you are correct. (You are also correct that this isn't an "aggregate" as defined in the GPL)

I think you misunderstand "GPL-compatible", a license is GPL compatible if it can be combined with GPL code and the aggregate distributed under the GPL. You may not combine GPL code code with a compatible license and distribute the combination under the non-GPL license. See: gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#WhatDoesCompatMean

comment Commercial use for embedded system
Since you are selling this make sure you charge enough to cover the cost of consulting a lawyer that is familiar with Open Source licensing and then consult that lawyer.

comment License for my Software
Are you a regular "W-2" employee, a 1099 contractor, or a contract employee via a third party. This will impact the answer. Are you an exempt or non-exempt employee?
