Just to chime in here: the issue is distribution. The address space of
the running Cubase application would constitute a "derived work". It
involves copying (the binary image into memory) so a license is required
but as I understand it, that copying isn't restricted in the GPL like
distribution is.

However, if a user took an image of the running application's address
space and then distributed that image to a third-party, the user would
be in violation of the plugin author's copyright. I would note as well
that with the proliferation of x86 virtual machines, this isn't actually
such a far fetched idea.
