I don't think the Debian project endorses anything on the matter. The
Debian project is concerned about the result, not about how the free

I'm not claiming they have to pay, I would just like to inform them that
they can in order to achieve something that contributes to our goal of a
free software operating system.

Feel free to reword the entry so that it's more neutral and expresses
better this point of view.
