Usage of the PPA system on LP requires that you agree to the usage
terms (not unlike machine usage policies for Debian).

We let non-MOTU upload to their own PPAs (has their name in the URL),
and if nonfree (or malicious) packages are uploaded, they can have PPA
rights removed.

There's been one issue I can recall, and it was only a very very
slight DFSG technicality.
