The TK eggs and Bremer license were topic of a discussion a couple
years back:

Turned out that Bremer license is equivalent to BSD, but without the
disclaimer which apparently makes the license void under German law.
I find it hard to believe that one clause can void an entire license
but apparently that's how it is.

Unfortunately, I was never able to contact Wolf-Dieter Busch to ask
him about this and a possible license switch to BSD.  You're welcome to
give it another try, though!
