The "source and license" webpage reports (see [1] at the bottom of this email)
that Disconnect is GPL "excluding the brand features and third-party portions
of the program" (which have non free software licenses).

So it seems to me that just (strictly) a portion of the source is GPL-covered,
while *any* distributed copy of Disconnect cannot be free, either for the brand
or the non free pieces... 

Am I wrong?
