Sorry, no, we do not have a lawyer.  You could contact the FSF (, but it is not likely they can help you either. You will probably have to hire a lawyer who is knowledgable about copyright law yourself.

Thank you for the information, but I would like to take a legal advice on GNUstep licensing, whom I have to write? Does your developer society have an accessible lawyer?

My informal (not legal advice) opinion would be that if you are not distributing GNUstep then you don't have any requirements under the license.  The GPL and LGPL are both distribution licenses - if you are just allowing people to use it remotely without distributing the code or the resulting software then there are no requirements to do anything.

Dear Madam or Sir,


I represent the group of developers, who are in charge of creating a cloud-based product. The soft we intend to develop is considered to be proprietary, and the potential business model based on revenue from end-user per stream.


The name of the library we interested in is “gnustep”.


In fact, I would like to find out if the business model we are going to use requires any special conditions of licensing; if it does, it would be great to know from you the details.


I am looking forward to hear from you asap.


Best regards,
