And how does that relate to this situation?  Assume you have a
proprietary library that communicates with some particular
device. Perhaps patented technology is involved so there is no
way to legally duplicate the functionality.  You do some work
to make a useful GPL program use that library to work with your
device.  You'd like to share that work with others who also
have the same device and library.  The GPL restricts you from
legally doing so.
