I was under the impression that the output of a program wasn't covered by the
licence of the program (or any licence dictated by the author of the program).
Wouldn't that be similar to the output of GCC being automatically covered by the
GPL, or am I misunderstanding something (I wouldn't be surprised if I was).

Also, although it says "The licence says this", surely that's irrelevant without
an actual licence that actually says that?
