Well, i've heard that according to the International Copyright Law(or
something like that), nothing is permitted unless explicitly declared
as permitted in a license. And debianizing and redistributing something
that is not permitted to use sounds nonsense.

BTW i've also heard that Japanese copyright law declares the use of
something is not prevented even if the permittion to use is not

Only i'm interested in is not changing the license, but redistributing them
through Debian (non-free, perhaps) ftp mirrors. If there's no problem about
redistributing them, i'll go ahead.
