How the different licenses work with different libraries

  • My understanding in how the licensing works is pretty vague when attempting to deploy an application. If you use all dynamic linking in all the libraries in Qt, as in all the .dll files are included in the build directory when shipping your program (without changing any of the library code provided by Qt), are you required to have the LGPL license in the directory? Or all of the licenses associated with the libraries your application links to?

    Another example would be the QExtSerialPort (which uses the MIT license). Is the separate license file required for this one as well?

    Any input would be great. Thanks!
