 A license is a permission grant. No license == no permission.

 Many of Debian's users are commercial entities. That's why the DFSG forbid
discriminating between fields of endeavo(u)r (meaning, a license that says,
for instance, "noncommercial use only" or "not for atomic weapons testing"
or "use in the trade of oil or oil-based products requires payment of a
0.5% royalty" isn't valid for Debian).
