First, thanks for your answer. Unfortunately this license does not fit
the requirements of the Debian project - the Debian Free Software
Guidelines (DFSG) [1]. It wouldn't allow us or a user to modify the
source - not even to fix a typo or to create a translation.

[2] contains a list of acceptable licenses for the Debian project. I
don't know your discussion, so I cannot make a suggestion (why not an
BSD license or an MIT/X license?). Why do you want to forbid derivatives

In question, I suggest to continue this dicussion on the debian-legal
mailing list [3].
