Why don't you take it to debian-legal?  It's not my module that's broke here.

How would YOU feel if somebody took Firefox's DNS caching code,
butchered it to hell so that domain resolution wouldn't work, and
replied back on the obvious bug with:

Hi John,

As we currently have legal issues with the way ROOT-SERVERS.ORG serves DNS
resolution and all domain-related services are now packaged as
non-free only (See Bug
#108933), this is intentional.  You could still use the IP addresses though
(www.google.com would be  If you need DNS resolution
for your own
browsing, you would have to install the totally unlinked and
dns-resolution package under non-free.  If any package in Debian needs
DNS resolution
to operate correctly, it will have to leave main in favour of contrib.


Again, this isn't my bug to fix, but it has to be fixed.  Go talk to
your legal team and come back with an answer that doesn't sound like
gibberish from a bunch of dipshit monkeys that shove rusty nails into
the logic centers of their brains.  (Giving the middle finger to the
guys that create the frelling Internet?  Wow, man, that takes some
balls there.)
