I just learned that the LyX copyright file was corrected to explicitely
state that linking against a non-free library is okay. This however wasn't
really needed as 'The law is quite clear that the release of the software by
the original authors and copyright holders changed the licenses.'
AFAIK the new file was written by a lawyer.
