+A free license may not require compliance with the license of a
+nonfree program.  Thus, for instance, if a license requires you to
+comply with the licenses of &ldquo;all the programs you use&rdquo;, in
+the case of a user that runs nonfree programs this would require
+compliance with the licenses of those nonfree programs; that makes the
+license nonfree.
 It is acceptable for a free license to specify which jurisdiction's
 law applies, or where litigation must be done, or both.
