Hi Karl and all!
I hope you are well and I am looking for advice, again :-)
We are discussing which PDF library to include in Tiki Wiki CMS
TCPDF is an option but there is a special clause
It is LGPL v3 + "Additionally, YOU CAN'T REMOVE ANY TCPDF COPYRIGHT
NOTICE OR LINK FROM THE GENERATED PDF DOCUMENTS."
What do you think?

I would also eliminate use of TCPDF for my current needs due to this
statement in their license:
YOU CAN'T REMOVE ANY TCPDF COPYRIGHT NOTICE OR LINK FROM THE
GENERATED PDF DOCUMENTS.
On the TCPDF examples, I see a large red logo on the top of every pdf....
