[zeromq-dev] LGPLv3 patent clause

Hello All,

Apologies if this is not the right list for this topic. I have gone through
the FAQs and understand the licensing terms of zeromq. I also understand
that it will not be re licensed.

I think zeromq is a great library to use for my project.  At my company,
all open source usage needs to be approved for use by a legal team.  Usage
of GLPv3 and LGPLv3 is flatly refused. One of the reasons is the clause
about the patents.  I don't fully understand the implications of the patent
clause of LGPLv3 w.r.t zeromq.  Does the static linking exception affect my
obligations in any way?

I'm basically looking for any information that I can provide to the legal
team to discuss further if an exception can be granted for this library.

Thank you in advance!
