You might wish to read the license before you begin shouting.
    "Derivative Works" shall mean any work, whether in Source or
    Object form, that is based on (or derived from) the Work and
    for which the editorial revisions, annotations, elaborations,
    or other modifications represent, as a whole, an original work
    of authorship.

A program which links with Apache-licensed code is based on it,
and the program as a whole will (generally) represent an original
work of authorship.
