Hi Debian legal
I am writing you to ask a question that someone I know doesnt believe. It
has to do with the Swiftfox license. Can you please confirm or deny that it
passes the DFSG? Thanks. I say it doesnt, but he requires proof. Thanks.
Here is the license.

license and are not freely distributable. Swiftfox
is licensed only to the user that downloads the

Download of any binary from getswiftfox.com
constitutes acceptance of these terms.
2. Swiftfox source code is available for download from
getswiftfox.com which is in keeping with the
requirements set forth by mozilla.org. This source
code includes all patches that have been applied to
create Swiftfox other than those that involve
branding. Swiftfox source code compiles correctly
on my build machine. No warranty or support is
provided for builders.
3. Source code only is licensed MPL as required by
Binaries are not MPL and no redistribution of

4. Swiftfox as a brand is trademark Jason Halme

Thanks for your time.
