Commercial services are ok, but non-Free software is not.  The GNU
coding standards are quite clear on this:

"A GNU program should not recommend, promote, or grant legitimacy
to the use of any non-free program. Proprietary software is a
social and ethical problem, and our aim is to put an end to that

This is a bit of a shame, since it's nice "advertising" to show
how lilypond is used, but I didn't make up the rules, and it's
entirely consistent with GNU's position.
