I'm not a lawyer, but I read that language as, "The rights granted to you 
under the License may not be used to [do things that are unlawful]." Having  
rights under one license to some program does not make it legal for you to 
violate a completely different license that applies to some other program.

I'd suggest discussing any remaining license issues at <
archive/html/guix-devel/2022-06/msg00235.html>, though.
