adhoc dataservice GmbH has settled with Buhl Data Service GmbH, the developer of the WISO Mein Büro (My Office) enterprise application software. Buhl agreed to pay €15,000 for violating the LGPL terms under which adhoc provides its FreeadhocUDF open source library (which includes various functions for UDF). The settlement disposes of a court case that resulted in a January 2011 opinion from a lower court in Bochum, Germany, that the use of the FreeadhocUDF library in WISO Mein Büro 2009 violated the LGPL’s licensing terms.
