    I have integrated zbar in my Android-app in minutes (great library!),
    nevertheless I am thinking of replacing it with another QR code reader now.
    The reason is, that there is much scepticism[1][2] on the web whether
    LGPL is compatible with commercial Android projects.

    Can someone tell me why zbar uses LGPL?
    Is there a way to make sure my app meets the license requirements?
