How would something that makes the licensee spend US$ 50/year (at least) to make a derivative work be free? Even Free as Speech? To be DFSG-free, a software must be distributed in such a way that the licensee can use, distribute, modify, and distribute modified with _no_ _strings_ _attached_.

Minimum wage is US$ 100/month down here, you know? This is *not* a reasonable burnden on the licensee...
