Apologies if this is a stupid or obvious question, but would any OpenGL applications written for Linux using Mesa3d have to be distributed freely? I know that Mesa3d uses a free licence requiring that:
The above copyright notice and this permission notice shall be included in all copies or substantial portions of the Software.
Since somebody writing an OpenGL program using Mesa3d would both include the header file and link against the library at runtime, it seems to me that any application using it would have to include the free licence.
On the other hand I had the idea that several commercial Linux games use Mesa3d.
Can anybody clarify this to me?
