The fact that this is a restriction on use is a bit problematic, just
from an end-user point of view. [I don't believe this affects its DFSG
status, since it works with free data sources just fine.]
It would probably be ideal if the user was warned about potentially
restrictive data sources when they enabled them the first time too; this
would give them a chance to do due diligence. (Or even when the program
first started if the program already had some equivalent feature.) [And
if it already does so, ignore my critique; I'm not familiar with this
software beyond following your efforts to clean up the DFSG status with
regards to the Bing logo.] At the very least, I'd stick a note in
Thanks again for working on making this software DFSG free.
