I apologize if I should be understanding this more readily but I'm a little new to this and dont understand the LGPL license. Here is the FAQ for it: http://www.qt.io/qt-licensing-terms/

I am making a website that scrapes data from other websites and organizes it in a nice manner. I plan to try and make money off this website through advertising and also by getting commissions from linking to certain sites. I plan on using server-side code that scrapes the website using PyQt4 (which uses Qt). The code scrapes the website and stores the data in a sql database. I then use the sql database to display the webpage.

I think it's fine to use the open source version of Qt right? I'm not selling or really giving any application away. The Qt is being used on server-side code to generate the sql database.

And if it is fine to use the open source, do I have to display a link on the website to the source code of the Qt I'm using? Just trying to fully understand. Thank you,

Can I use Qt open-source for my web-scraping website?
