Advice on licensing terms

I am considering to package for Debian a library whose licensing conditions
are the following:

    This software is free for non-commercial use. It may be copied,
    modified, and redistributed provided that the copyright notices which
    appear within the library source files are preserved on all copies. The
    intellectual property rights of the algorithms used reside with the
    University of Manchester Advanced Interfaces Group.

    You may not use this software, in whole or in part, in support of any
    commercial product without the express consent of the author.

I think that the last paragraph makes it non DFSG-compliant, right?

[Cc: replies to me, please, as I am not subscribed to debian-legal.]
