ZFS is licensed under the CDDL[1], which is both free (as in freedom) 
and DFGS *compliant*.

It is also *incompatible* with the GPL, which means distributing a Linux 
kernel (GPL) including the ZFS modules is possibly illegal[2].

End users however are well within their rights (freedom 0 and 1)[3] to 
use this combination, as long as they don't share it with anyone else 
(freedoms 3 and 4)[3].
