Hi,

there is an article on phoronix
https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Oracle-vs-Google-Wine-API,
which shows that the Google vs Oracle case is concerning Wine developers
because Wine mimics the Windows-API with the function names and
parameters. Under this light the LCL might also be affected because it
mimics the VCL to a large degree - and many fcl libraries mimic
corresponding Delphi libraries. What do you think ?

For starters, most of FPC based developers are not in the US.
So the rulings of a US court do not apply to them.

Many of them are based in Europe, where different laws apply.

So, strictly speaking, if it turns out the ruling applies to LCL/FCL, it means that US citizens will not be allowed to use the LCL/FCL.

Michael.
