With this exception of the one part I marked, this license appears
DFSG-free and GPL-compatible.

With that part, it is neither. It appears to deny me the right to
assert copyright in any derived works I may create. I think this is a
regular bug in the wording of the license, caused by letting a
non-lawyer write a license, and should be easily corrected.
