Dear Ahmed,

this is very restrictive and somewhat ambiguous. For instance depending on what
“Reproduced” is interpreted it may mean that we can not redistribute copies.

Perhaps you can try the other way round: explaining the DFSG upstream, and
asking them if they confirm that their license is compatible with our
guidelines, after undelining the potential problems.

This may be a good opportunity to ask them if they would kindly consider
a free license, or at least a non-free license that is already in Debian.

Have a nice day,
