The GNU Lesser General Public License is a software license designed as a compromise between the GNU General Public License and the simple permissive licenses of X Window System and BSD. It places a copyleft restriction on individual source code files but does not copyleft the program as a whole. The license is useful for software libraries; it was once called the GNU Library General Public License.
