Re: Help with SPIN License

Yeeech.  What a monster.  It's not DFSG-free.

"labels or other notices"?  What the heck does THAT mean?  If it's restricted 
to accurate legal notices, it's fine; if not, it's not.

Not DFSG-free.  See the FAQ.

Way too overbroad.  Must be restricted, at the very least, to suits claiming 
that the Licensed Software infringes somebody's rights.

I could have missed other problems.  :-/
It seems to be freely distributable, and hence acceptable in non-free.
