I see your point here.

I had a look at your geoip package in experimental (1.4.5.dfsg-1). You
removed the string "All Rights Reserved" from the GeoIP database using:

$ sed 's/ All Rights Reserved//' -i data/GeoIP.dat

In effect, the GeoLiteCountry database used by deluge has the very same

$ wget http://www.maxmind.com/download/geoip/database/GeoLiteCountry/GeoIP.dat.gz
$ gunzip GeoIP.dat.gz
$ strings GeoIP.dat 
GEO-106FREE 20081101 Build 1 Copyright (c) 2007 MaxMind LLC All Rights Reserved

I guess I'll ask MaxMind for a similar permission to change the
copyright statement and then I'll repackage the source tarball.

Any suggestion?
