You are absolutely right. I had to prepare non-free CD-ROM and it was
very hard to do. I'm not a lawyer and the some of copyright infos are
I think it would be great if each non-free package had a template:
Private usage: yes/no
Commercial usage: yes/no
Modifications are allowed: yes/no
Copying is allowed: yes/no
Selling is allowed with minimal cost: yes/no (this is important for CD-vendors)
Selling is allowed for any cost: yes/no
