"A licensor who contractually prohibited the combination of its

are not affected would exceed the scope of its copyright by seeking
to control external activities and subject matter—namely, the use of
independent programs.

Fortunately, the GPL does not prohibit this, so any analysis
of the consequences of such a prohibition is irrelevant to
the GPL.

    A “covered work” means either the unmodified Program or
    a work based on the Program.
    You may make, run and propagate covered works that you do
    not convey, without conditions so long as your license
    otherwise remains in force.
