[hackerspaces] Software Licensing

I have to echo the sentiments that the space should never *condone* unlawful
acts, if only to protect the entity as a whole.

I don't know about the other hack(er)spaces, but Stockport Hackspace is
trying to remind people about the original meaning of the word Hacker, to
try and replace the media meaning of the word. Letting Ub3r 1337 h4x0rz
actively and knowingly share warez from the space only harms this ideal.

Also, as mentioned elsewhere, enforcing the "software only with license"
rule encourages software we can legally hack on as well!
