Re: Licence

If its dual licensed then you can still only redistribute it under GPL terms for free.

As this is a library, if it was dual licensed you would have to make your software GPL or buy a license.

There is a problem without SaaS not being covered by the GPL, but that is what the AGPL is for and it is not the issue here (because its a library that is useful for desktop software).
