No.  That's one of the reasons pine is non-free.

Obviously, he has to get permission for each site.  I suggested in a
previous post that he ask UW to extend his permission to ftp.debian.org and

The man is a law student, and is negotiating directly with UW.  I see no
reason not to assume that he knows what he is doing.
