There is no licensing issue, but there are OpenSource enemies that spread a 
fairy tale about an alleged licensing issue.

The only problem with integrating ZFS into Linux is that the VFS interface from 
Linux is inferior to the one from OpenSolaris and as a result, there is a need 
to first implement missing interfaces.
