  As you can read, above license cannot be considered free by Debian.
Due to this license, sounds affected by it must be removed from Debian
packages and sources.

  Thus, I would like to know if this license affects only hold music or
every sound in asterisk, for the purpose of removing only sounds
affected by this license.
