As far as copyright is concerned, it is my personal understanding that
anonymous and pseudonymous works are protected by copyright in all
Berne Convention signatory countries (that is to say, virtually
everywhere): see, for instance,
article 7, paragraph 3 of the Berne Convention
http://wipo.int/treaties/en/ip/berne/trtdocs_wo001.html#P127_22000
as well as article 15, paragraph 3
http://wipo.int/treaties/en/ip/berne/trtdocs_wo001.html#P192_37445


Whether the Debian Project is or is not willing to accept pseudonymous
works in its archive, it is up to the FTP Masters to decide, I think.


I hope this helps.
