Is it legal to use Lingoes dictionary (//www.makeuseof.com/tag/lingoes-–-a-portable-dictionary-and-multi-language-translator-in-your-pocket/ Lingoes - A Portable Dictionary and Multi-Language Translator in Your Pocket Lingoes - A Portable Dictionary and Multi-Language Translator in Your Pocket Read More )? I am asking so because dictionaries catalogued in lingoes are commercial (e.g. Longman, Macmillan, Meriam-Webster, Collins etc.) and to quote the Wikipedia article “The use of dictionary brand names like Oxford’s, Longman’s, Cambridge’s, Merriam-Webster’s, Collin’s and others without any reference in Lingoes’ website to the legitimacy of this use is suspicious of an illegal act.”

Thanks
