The Debian project deals with the freedom of software for users of
Debian. If that freedom is restricted by law, it doesn't matter the
means used.

Really? For any patent, from whomever holds it, in any jurisdiction,
for use in any software, for any purpose? The Debian project is
concerned with all users having all the freedoms in the DFSG for all
software in Debian.
