Untrue - static linking makes changes to the inserted library
code as addresses are resolved. But that's probably not relevant.

False. The GPL itself defines what it means by "based", and that
definition states that it describes a work other than a verbatim
copy whose production requires copyright permission.

Uh... you can't define your own copyright law and expect a federal court to enforce your new definition. Read 17 USC sec. 301.
