What makes you think that interfaces Graph, Vertex and Edge are
protected elements, Tassilo?

Which is utterly irrelevant in the copyright context unless derived
classes' *source code* contains protected elements copied from abstract
base implementations of Graph, Vertex and Edge.

Simply put, OOP term "derive from" doesn't equate to copyright term
"derivative work".

Got it now, Tassilo?

too, whereas GNU cannot.)
