As usual, min-RMS jumps to idiotic conclusions. What "ways around"?

The copyright in Gottfried's LiMath_Optimierung is totally 
independent from whatever "libraries" (other computer programs) his 
program depends on for running.

Thanks to Wallace, the FSF is on record telling to the federal judge 
in court of law that "In fact, the GPL itself rejects any automatic 
aggregation of software copyrights under the GPL simply because one 
program licensed under the GPL is distributed together with another 
program that is not licensed under the GPL".
