Its a matter of semantics. You are required to license the software that you are running whether it is in a virtual machine or on a real machine. All versions of Linux have licenses. You have to meet the license of the version that you are using. It may include paying a fee then it may not. Same with any other software you use.
Will, if you're going to pick semantic nits... there is still such a thing as software that's in the public domain - i.e., nobody owns it and there is no license at all.
