More to the point, I suspect the only way to answer that sort of question
is to get a very expensive legal expert to give you an opinion, and even
then it'll only be an opinion.
One of the problems with opensource software is that, while you will often
be told you're not allowed to do certain things and threatened with
(almost invariably spurious) legal action, it is often very difficult to
get anyone to go on-record and tell you what they're willing to permit.
It's often quite difficult even to find someone who's willing to accept
that they speak for the project, although a lot of people often make
claims that would make you think they did!
