comment TotalPhase Aardvark driver's GPL license
Not quite true. You can statically link to the LGPL library as long as you provide unlinked object files that can be used to rebuild the application with a modified version of the LGPL library. (see LGPL Version 3, section 4d0.)

comment Releasing open-source software including Apache2 and LGPL libraries?
You probably should include a mention in your Notice file (or equivalent) of the included libraries and the copyrights for them. (e.g. this software includes X, copyright <date>, <owner name>, licensed under the Apache License, for details see <other file>). Even if it is not strictly legally required, it is a nice thing to do.

comment General questions regarding open-source licensing
If it depends on proprietary code one could ask "why bother open sourcing it?" But if you really want to I would use the BSD license and not include the media assets with the source or include placeholder assets. To retains rights to the name, release it under a similar but different name than your application.

5. If you are selling your software -- charge enough to pay the Lawyer from #4 to answer these questions.

comment Which Ext JS license should be acquired (when developing a Spring MVC/Hibernate/Ext JS web application)?
I totally agree. As is almost always the case, asking the rights holder is the best way to get an answer. (and it is cheaper than hiring a lawyer to review the license and interpret it)

comment Which Ext JS license should be acquired (when developing a Spring MVC/Hibernate/Ext JS web application)?
That is one way to read it. The other way to read it is that if I start by downloading the GPL version of ExtJS for my internal development assuming that I will never "convey" the software (because it is only being used by employees of the license holder) I cannot later switch to the commercial version. Granted this would be very hard to enforce but a literal reading of the license implies this.

comment MIT License: Why isn't it considered viral?
The MIT license does not require anything to "remain open" it only requires you to include the copyright notice. Not the source code.
