Re: GPL and other licences

   To clarify it a bit: providing source code is not the question
   here. I just want to know if it is legal to use the differently
   licensed software in such manner, namely: personal/internal use
   eventhough the licences exclude eachother

This boils down to: Can you break the law at home?  Of course you
can't.  So the same applies to the GPL.  Since you cannot mix two
incompatible licenses legally, then you cannot do this in the privacy
of your own internal use.  It would in the end still be a violation of
copyright law.

Cheers.
