As far as I  know, much work  has gone into  csound to ensure that all
copyright holders agreed to switching the license of the whole work to
GNU   LGPL.  Again,  AFAIK  all  copyright   holders have given  their
permission, and the work can rightfully be considered libre software.

I'm putting Nicola Bernardini, one of Csound authors, to see if he can
help us clarify the matter.

If necessary, we (as the AGNULA project) will  clarify things with the
relevant  persons (although we  are packaging it now  and we did check
that we could do it).
