Licensing Query - GNU LGPL or Mozilla Public License - Limitations of use - Freeware ? ? ?

I have a general question regarding the licensing and applicability of a freely downloadable product library.

I have downloaded TurboPower LockBox (from http://sourceforge.net/projects/tplockbox/) and found this to be an excellent encryption/hash library product.   Everything is there, packages, DCUs, even the full source code.

When I check out the license conditons, the information given is [ License: GNU Library or Lesser General Public License (LGPL), Mozilla Public License 1.1 (MPL 1.1) ] on the above page.

There is lots of legalese ... whether you can modify it ... I don't see anywhere that I can buy it - but nor do I see the term 'Freeware with source' or equivalent.

My question is, am I able to (legally) use this as an embedded part of a commercial product ?

Thanks
Geoff

The dual licensing is for allowiing to use the components with Kylix Open Edition which only allows to create GPL/LGPL programs.
You are allowed to choose the license which fits your needs.
The MPL allows you to use the components in commercial products provided you name the use (with links etc).

Thankyou.   Can I restate/confirm, the code is free to use provided acknowledgement of source is given in my application ?

Thanks
