MIT + explicit "Don't sell this code." - DFSG compliant?


I am wondering if something like this is fit to enter Debian:

There is a web tool written in PHP that I try to package for Debian.
I would like to use Tagify in that project by adding the minified js.

Now the thing is that officially the project is licensed under MIT with a MIT 
license file at the root of the project directory
However when looking at the header of the distributed files, there is this

 * Tagify (v 4.9.8) - tags input component
 * By Yair Even-Or
 * Don't sell this code. (c)
 * https://github.com/yairEO/tagify

So, no mention of MIT and only mention of Don't sell this code.

I filed an issue [2] upstream about this inconsistency.

Could this actually enter a Debian package?

I'm wondering because of the JSON no evil [3] case.
