I found the following regarding the splash screen:
Source: https://forum.juce.com/t/splash-screen- ... e/21908/43The splash screen only affects an exciting new free tier - If you want to release a closed source JUCE-based product, and your revenue/funding is less that $50k, you can do so for free using the Personal license, but you will need to display a splash screen.
Source: https://forum.juce.com/t/how-to-turn-of ... ects/22329Directly in the information section next to the option for turning off the splash screen, it says that the splash screen can be disabled if the app is released under GPL v3
Based on that, my understanding is as follows. Please correct me if I'm wrong!
1. As per the quotes above, the splash screen is only needed for closed software and when the developer's revenue is less than $50k. If the software is open source under GPL 3, the splash screen is not needed.
2. So, since the ScopeOSC package is released under GPL 3, there's no need for the splash screen.
3. Every SCOPE device that includes the OSC package has also to be released under GPL (and thus has to be open source).
There's also something noteworthy in the Juce 5 License Agreement by the way (highlighting done by me):
