Companies and other "free <stuff> world" projects doing it does not mean
that it's allowed for each and everyone. IMO it's generally a bad habit to
fall back to "they do it, so why shouldn't I do it, too".

The bottom line of the whole discussion was that Debian, should it be
interested as a whole in solving this question, should ask for legal
counsel via SPI. I think this is advise is correct - a lawyer commenting
on these questions is much more reliable than hundreds of laymens doing
wild guesswork.
