"I have no problem with BSD myself, but I also uploaded translations from

As long as the uploads were marked as translations that were published
elsewhere, they fall under a separate copyright regime: those imports will
retain their original copyright license. The BSD licence only applies to
translations that are (as far as the system knows) original to Launchpad."
