There was a thread on debian-legal that discussed
different points of view on how GPL applies to
programs using it.

Check out

for more information.

If you are working for a company on a non-GPLd app,
you should consult your lawyer first. If you are
considering to use kaffe for a free software
application, you should consider putting your
application under the GPL, or dual licensing it under
the GPL.
