    I don't see anything in that language which indicates that special
    permission is required to modify and distribute the software.

I don't either--but that is not the point.  The point is that the U of W
has actually threatened to sue the FSF for distributing a modified version
of a program that was released under the same words.

To treat a program released under those words by U of W as free software
is being oblivious to the problem.
