Hmm, why I could not build there something covered by - let say - Zimbra
Public License 1.3 ?
This is randomly chosen license from "Bad" section where it is forbidden
to modifacate software. But otherwise it is redistributable and open
source. This is not acceptable for Fedora itself, but should be fine for
We really didn't want to have to review all the non-free licenses out
there to determine whether they were freely distributable without
restriction, especially since we know that the majority of these
licenses are not.
I suppose we could append this and start keeping a list of licenses that
are only "okay for Coprs", but I really am less than excited about this.
Are there people who want this?

Why we should forbid binary blobs (e.g firmwares)?
But beside those blobs I agree.
In general, the items on the Forbidden list are such because they are
either common proprietary software or known to be legally problematic.
There is not a blanket "no binary blobs" entry in Forbidden_items, so
I'm not sure why you're bringing that point up. It does say no non-free
kernel modules, if that's what you are referring to, it might be
possible to explicitly exclude that item for Coprs.
