Well, you are wrong because last Friday Sun announced their new plans...
Linux is not a big priority for Sun, after all there is always
Microsoft Linux: http://www.mslinux.org/

I would say: no problem! After all, you are the one who makes this CD
and you are entitled to have any license you like. You don't want to
give to Patels or even to Greeks, just do it. Big publishers around
the world respect the work many TeX people have done and they have
shown that in various ways, but that particular publisher is
too arrogant! But, since you people don't understand this I will remove
the restriction.
