That is not true - read the stuff Ascom has to say about it in the
idea.c module and elesewhere. The gratis usage of IDEA is very
limited - according to some discussons a few years ago, you are even
not allowed to use this for private tasks on a box which you also
use for business stuff. And the "or" in you list of usage patterns
should be replaced by "and".
However, the main reason why we can't put IDEA into a GPLed
program is that it would violates the GPL (cf. section 7).
