I don't exactly understand. Does this mean that I can't use any
GPL-ed Products combined with Zope and distribute them? For example,
I couldn't the use the GPL-ed CookieLess Session Management Product
with my application and legally distribute it with Zope?
Does this also mean that I can't make a complete application, released
under the GPL, and distribute it legally with Zope to my clients? If
so, is there a way that this can be done legally, without relicensing
any of the "programs"?

But what is defined as distribution? Can I install Zope on-site, then
install the GPL-ed application and it would be legal?
| You cannot legally combined GPL'ed software with Zope.
Not at all?
