Quoting Niall O Broin (niall at linux.ie):

Yes, well, _do_ they have such "arrangements"?
If you claim that they do, please cite the licence statements shown
and/or included in the applicable READMEs when you install the following
packages in SUSE Linux 9.3 Professional Edition:
Opera Web Browser
Adobe Acrobat Reader
...or confirm for me that all of those packages are now gone from
Professional Edition. Thanks.
I don't know why people keep implicitly assuming that Novell / SUSE has
the legal right to issue licensing statements on behalf of the owners of
constituent packages, when that assumption has repeatedly proved false
for prior releases, upon examination.
