DikuMUD & CircleMUD license

How would the Circle & Diku licenses affect a world-file based on a 
fictional world? For instance, say I were to make a circlemud based on 
an obscure hypothetical novel X. Would the novelist then be using 
circlemud to make money (since circlemud would be, in essence, free 
advertising for sales of X?) What about the other way around: what if 
someone had a really cool world file and then started making novels based 
on it, would that violate the license. Or, in a more favorable 
interpretation, are the Mud and its background separate enough to purse 
independant careers.
