That last sentence sounds concerning - it does not affect Fedora, but is
that not an unacceptable restriction for our users? IANAL though.
Let me check with some folks on that. I'd be interested in others'
If it were a code license, that's an obvious field of use restriction,
which means we wouldn't accept it. Historically, we've permitted
non-modification content licenses. Given the relatively narrow
restriction here, I'm inclined to except it, too. After all, we *use*
Unsplash photos around the project all the time: in Fedora Magazine,
on the Flock website, etc.
