    Hi all,
    
    I have a question concerning the GPL.  Is it permissible for an app
    under a GPL-incompatible license to provide output in LilyPond code?
    For example, could Finale provide a Finale->LilyPond converter even
    though the mechanics are shrouded in mystery?
    
    Thanks,

Finale could provide a Finale->LilyPond converter, but it could not use 
LilyPond GPL code to do so.

The LilyPond language is not copyrighted; the LilyPond code is, as far as I 
understand.
