I can't really speculate on Canonical's legal stance and I encourage
everyone else to also not.
I can point to Red Hat's, though: the knowledge base article here
* ZFS is not included in the upstream Linux kernel due to licensing
* Red Hat applies the upstream first policy for kernel modules
filesystems). Without upstream presence, kernel modules like ZFS
supported by Red Hat.
This is not fully true to my knowledge. Red Hat ships VDO and that is
not even sent to upstream (yet?).
and "due to licensing reasons" links to
interesting and quite long. If you have just time to read one
two paragraphs at the end under "Do Not Rely On This Document As
Advice" seem like the _most_ interesting to me.
