this package, nltk-data, got caught on our filters due to a license that says:

    Parts of NTLK-Data are distributed under various licenses,
    as documented in their respective README files.
    See: /usr/share/nltk/data/corpora/ -- [0]

so we went checking those licenses, to find out that the package is composed by
a bunch of data sets with very different licensing, very few of them free.

the licenses include copyright plus redistribution allowed, cc-nc, bsd-like,
only one gpl, and several doesn't even have a license, just the author name.
though, these are collections of words... i don't know if copyright applies to

also, nltk (the software) has a method for downloading this data directly from
the website... this qualifies as recommending unfree stuff, right?
