Yes it is still false. There are plenty of LOD datasets that don't fit  
into your classification at all because they have on-the-fly generated  
RDF and have no IP or licensing issues whatsoever.

Static vs. dynamic is about implementation techniques. Paying  
attention to licensing issues is a completely orthogonal issue. I  
really don't know where you get the idea that these two questions are  
the same. They are not.

Cheers,
Richard
