Can you explain where the infringement is occurring? The user of
HyProg has libGNU on his computer. The license of libGNU, the GPL,
says "You may make, run and propagate covered works that you do
not convey, without conditions so long as your license otherwise
remains in force." When the user of HyProg activates it, and it
causes libGNU to be copied into memory, that is an action allowed
by the GPL because libGNU is not being conveyed.
