Hi Mihai,

That system requires a login in order to access that bug, and after
registering I can't access the bug ("You are not authorized..."), and I
doubt I'm alone in this. Could you elaborate further?

Since Sourceforge is hosted in the US, I _suspect_ at minimum if the file is 
sufficiently small that it's covered by fair use there, and in many countries 
(also whilst UK copyright law doesn't have that concept unfortunately). If it 
isn't I'd be willing to try and get in contact with the appropriate people.

I'm not a lawyer though, nor able to grant permission if none hasn't already 
been, but I might be able to help *IF* there is an issue :)
