Well, it's IMHO not non-free (as in not DFSG free) but it's definitely
GPLv2 incompatible because of the restriction in the patent license
(interesting here: if they didn't include a patent license nobody
would've complained although they had no official rights to use the
patents...). If your software is (L)GPLv2+ or v3 I guess everything is
fine, if it's LGPLv2 it's probably fine too.

But you're right, Debian Legal should probably look at it as well. I've
already asked the ftp-masters to give their statement about the license
and compatibility with other licenses but they didn't answer yet.
