Subject Re: LGPL vs Apache 2.0 FAQ?

Hi Gianluca,

I am not a lawyer but I think the following page is informative for 
people to understand how the Apache Foundation handles third-party licenses:

And the Legal page is worth to be read as well:

If you want to compare the licenses then it's always helpful to take a 
look at the Open Source Initiative homepage at

I'm not sure if an average user is able to read legal language thus in 
my opinion such a legal comparison might not be useful at all because it 
probably needs to be written in legal language.
