Yes, you can. GPL only affects distribution of executables to
party, it doesn't affect services. Maybe you are thinking of
also affects services. But even AGPL allows internal usage.
No, you cannot link against GPL library without making your
code also GPL. "Services" I don't think have anything to do
with this, we are talking about binary linking.
There was something called the "server loophole." The language
of GPLv2 only requires source to be distributed if the binaries
are distributed. The Affero GPL was created to close the
loophole, requiring source to be made available even if the
binaries aren't distributed. IIRC, GPLv3 requires the same.
Looks like I got my versions wrong. AGPL is a modified GPLv3.
