Think of shipping a pile of e-books in own file. That's what static
linking is as far as copyright is concerned because relocation and
symbol resolution are irrelevant details regarding copyright.

No, both of these statements are wrong. See 17 USC 101
    A “collective work” is a work, such as a periodical issue,
    anthology, or encyclopedia, in which a number of contributions,
    constituting separate and independent works in themselves, are
    assembled into a collective whole.

    A “compilation” is a work formed by the collection and assembling
    of preexisting materials or of data that are selected, coordinated,
    or arranged in such a way that the resulting work as a whole
    constitutes an original work of authorship. The term “compilation”
    includes collective works.
