    Do you have an example?


What about it?

An example would be a URL to a web page which shows something which might be misconstrued by the user. Especially when such situation is the fault of the project, and not of the underlying sources of information.

https://repology.org/project/nmap/packages (okay, this shows the homepage too) clearly shows the non-standard license where it can.

And the GPLv2 license for older versions.
