Oliver, YOU ARE WRONG! (Sorry for shouting).
The Bern convention explicitely says, that if you have not a licence for it,
it is FORBIDDEN.
This is a matter of fact.
Furthermore, from a legal point of view, statically and dynamically linking
is the same. If the linking is done at build time or at run time doesn't
matter at all.
