Review of a pseudo licence statement

[Please CC me, I'm not subscribed]


I intent to package[1] the Perl module libnet-amazon-s3-perl (because it's needed by the package backup-manager).

1: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=368734

The problem is that the copyright notice I can find in the upstream sources does not refer to a real licence. It sounds to me that it's free software, but I'd like to have your point of view before I upload the package.

Here it is:

#  This software code is made available "AS IS" without warranties of any
#  kind.  You may copy, display, modify and redistribute the software
#  code either by itself or as incorporated into your code; provided that
#  you do not remove any proprietary notices.  Your use of this software
#  code is at your own risk and you waive any claim against Amazon
#  Digital Services, Inc. or its affiliates with respect to your use of
#  this software code. (c) 2006 Amazon Digital Services, Inc. or its
#  affiliates.

Note that there is no COPYING file in the upstream tarball, nor any licencing paragraph in the README, the only copyright notice is the one above, included in the Perl source code.

Is that module DFSG free? Can I upload it safely to main?
