Gnome supports both the free software movement as well as proprietary
developers, and that is why Gnome for years has encouraged the use of
the LGPL license for all of its libraries.

Gnome is a general purpose desktop, but it also recognizes the need for
proprietary applications to use these libraries and to build and
integrate properly with it.
