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).
