This one contradicts your thesis. Big surprise, that.
    Software combinations involving dynamic links usually
    lack permanency, combination creativity, and internal
    changes. Even software combinations through static
    links do not necessarily affect adaptation rights,
    because such linking often results in the creation of
    a compilation or noncreative aggregation of programs
    or sub-programs. Nevertheless, under the U.S. Copyright
    Act, software developers typically have to obtain a
    license before they may combine programs through static
    linking because such linking affects the duplication
    rights of the linked program’s copyright owner.
