You are very confused.
The System.CodeDOM API is a mechanism to "build" source code through an
API. It is just an abstraction so that ASP.NET can "create" pages built
on a number of languages.
Once you have constructed your "CodeDOM", it is written into a file, and
an external compiler is invoked. So there are no licensing problems.
CodeDOM is just not what you expect it to be. Read the docs please.
