We're working on a re-distribution license right now, but nothing crazy -
only to make sure people don't try to trick people to pay for uTorrent
freeware and to get them to promise not to bundle spyware with uTorrent.

But for the moment we don't yet have this license in place so you should
feel free to just make use of uTorrent. We are very eager to encourage
applications of our technology like yours.

Best regards
Simon Morris

Hello, my name's Alexander Yerenkow, i'm taking part of developing
PC-BSD (it's OS based on FreeBSD).

Currently we have technology make redistributable packages of some
software, even for windows one.
As example - here is Windows Firefox, packaged for use on PC-BSD:

So, the goal of this letter is make clear, can we take uTorrent and make
installer for PC-BSD,
is there some license (or just personal maybe) restriction exists, which
didn't allow us to do this?

The uTorrent itself will be untouched and unmodified.
