This has nothing to do with licenses. This has to do with AMD and Intel trying to stay ahead of NVidia by abusing their position within the kernel developer community.
AMD closed source binary drivers are no more allowed to use that than nvidia. If nvidia wants to play this game, they need to open source it.
