mixmaster license



Hi!

I'm currently packagin mixmaster 2.04b45 which is under the gpl, no
problem there :).


Unfortunaly newer versions of mixmaster are not released under the gpl
any more.

One part that I don't like about the new license[1] is the following
paragraph (1.b.iii):

    [you may modify and distribute the source only iff you]
       provide Anonymizer Inc. with a copy of the Source Code of
       such modifications or work by electronic mail, and grant
       Anonymizer Inc. a perpetual, royalty-free license to use and
       distribute the modifications or work in its products.

Am I correct to assume that this would make the package go into
non-free?

TIA
					yours,
					peter
