in thread Derivative Works and Perl Modules

Perl is never staticly linked, in the normal case, so simple "use"ing of a module doesn't do it.

According to this:

First, create a Perl that includes a statically linked DBI by running these commands in the directory where your DBI distribution is located:

shell> perl Makefile.PL -static -config
shell> make
shell> make install
shell> make perl

Note that I haven't tried this, I just remembered reading about it once.

No, Homer, very few cartoons are broadcast live - it's a terrible strain on the animator's wrist

    The important distinction there is that, while linking statically makes the resulting executable a derived work, it does not make the original module source a derived work.
