License question

  • Hi,

    just a question:

    If I wanted to delivery an application developed with qt using some file of examples present in qt examples dir, where I have reused code inside. How can I redistribute the application. I guess I can, but I dont know how in practice.

  • I think it's fine as the example are supposed to help people learn Qt

    You could put a reference in the header of your source file saying it's based on example X from Qt.

    I'm not a lawyer so check the license inside the examples, it's in every source file so you can read it :

  • So, am I able to modify example and redistribute with the header just contained? or can I deleted the header copyrigth and write what you suggest?
