Hi Andy,

I got an answer from Debian-Legal a moment ago. It says, that Debian can't 
accept this license as free software. There is still non-free, where org.json 
could go and then HBase would go into section contrib which is for free 
software that depends on non-free software.

I've opened an issue on this topic in the hbase jira:
