I have just read the License of a Student edition of Matlab 5. In the
middle of it, it says 

"...In particular, Licensee may not alter, adapt, translate or convert
"M-Files" contained in the Programs in order to use those files with any
non-Developer software, nor may the Licensee incorporate or use "M-Files"
or any other part of the Programs in or as part of another computer

Anyway, do such restrictions have legal validity?
