comment Advertising clause in Apache License
"Mentioning use" is a strange phrase. Clearly, using a program uses its components, but does "mentioning use" of a program necessarily count as "mentioning use" of its components?

comment Advertising clause in Apache License
"Why would you conceal the use of Apache?" - because the advertising clause is hard to keep. What if we create a Google Ad Words ad for our product? Where will we find the space to add the extra sentence? We would only have to forget to include the message in one advertisement and then we would be technically in breach of the license.

comment Advertising clause in Apache License
I guess I wasn't clear enough. Suppose I have some Apache Licensed code and I link it to code I wrote myself. With the GPL, copy-left would attach to the code that I wrote if I wanted to distribute it. With the Lesser GPL, it would not. With Apache, will the advertising clause force me to mention Apache in any advertisement of the program that uses an Apache component?
