Hello -legal,

	I'm currently packaging sofia-sip.org SIP User Agent library which is 
licensed under LGPL [1]. There is also a large file populated with several 
copyrights [2] related to the code as used and distributed by the some of the 
library files. I did not spot any brutal non-DFSG issues, but since it is 
large and complex I'd like to read some opinions from any sharp eyed 
criticists. However I'm a little bit puzzled by the "Restricted Rights" as 
mentioned within the paragraph pasted below [3] when it comes to GOVERNMENT 
USE and DoD usages ? 

	I found that DFAR 252.227-7013 (c) (1) at [4] while being helped by google.

	I also didn't paste the whole COPYRIGHTS file here, since it is pretty large, 
instead if you spot a suspicios paragraph quote & comment it below. Thanks 
for your comments.
