     gNewSense and Trisquel have this package. So I want to be careful. We need
     more opinions from other experts. :-)

Sure, but the license you linked to above is unquestionably nonfree.  As
for whether it actually applies to the software or if it's overridden by
some other statement somewhere else, I can't say.  The situation should
be fixed, one way or another, even if it's "really" under the GPL and
doesn't need to be removed.


AND the last part says:
which the debian project sees as acceptable if it is not then so be it

However, Vladimir told me:


This message is to serve as an announcement that I am changing the
copyright of mmv to GPL.

If this message is in any way insufficient to do so, please tell me what
I have to do. Please keep in mind that I do not have in hand either the
full GPL text or the source code of the last mmv release (oops).

If there is any other way that I can help out, please tell me.
