GNU, GPL, Open Source "This guest whitepaper explains how a hypervisor can be used to leverage GPL software while isolating it from proprietary code, in order to ensure compliance with the requirements of the GPL. It was written by a TRANGO Virtual Processors product manager, and uses that company's hypervisor as an example."

The FUSE system wasn't created to avoid licensing issues. It was created to allow easy development of portable and complex filesystems in userspace.

You're right to notice that it allows to work around licensing limitations though (f.e. ZFS on FUSE).
