When you distribute your program using PDF Clown (either self-hosted or as a service), you have to accomplish some requirements:

  • give notice that your program uses PDF Clown, and that PDF Clown is covered by LGPL (might there be a section of your documentation and/or a dialog box displayed by your program which expose copyright notices, you have to show PDF Clown’s copyright notice as well);
  • supply the PDF Clown library source code, or give notice of the way it can be obtained mentioning its home URL (;
  • supply a copy of the LGPL (you can find it included in the downloadable distribution).

Aren’t these requirements applicable to your integration context? You can alternatively opt for an OEM License which grants you the freedom to customize and bundle PDF Clown into your own products without need to disclose its source code or to expose any copyright notice.
