Libraries licence

Asked by Jan on 2017-08-31

Hello,
I'm developing a commercial software for MCU which is built by GNU ARM Embedded Toolchain. I want to sell the device (product) and I don't want the source code to be released.
When I compile my code using a -Wl,--verbose I see my program uses these libraries:
libc, libm, libgcc
So my question is: can I use them for my purposes?
I understand, according to license.txt, that libc is a newlib or newlib-nano and I need to be careful, because each part is under different license, right?
What about other libraries used (libm, libgcc, libstdc++ , crtend, crtn, .. ) not covered in license.txt, can I use them for my purporses? Under which license are they released?

Sorry, we cannot give you legal advice on this. All licenses that make up the GNU ARM Embedded Toolchain are in license.txt. It would be best if you sought legal advice from a qualified source.
