The included license refers to
http://www.bittorrent.com/legal/terms-of-use which states in
section 4a:

    Any copying or redistribution of the Software is prohibited,
    including any copying or redistribution of the Software to
    any other server or location, redistribution or use on a
    service bureau basis.

So it looks like it cannot be legally hosted on either OBS or
