[openlp-dev] Licensing, Copyright and Legalities

Hi guys,

One of the painful things I had to deal with (and thank you Tomas for 
your assistance, I really appreciate it!) while trying to update our 
package in Debian was the fact that we had some song files in our 
repository for testing purposes that were under copyright.

If you want to add a song in a particular file format for testing, 
PLEASE make sure that it is not under copyright. Either make up your own 
song, or use a song that is 100% in the public domain.

Debian rules aside, it is technically illegal for us to do that. Please 
be very careful when you add icons and resources for testing.
