Thanks for you submission!
I would like to ask you to file this module in the non-free modules
website, as the patch included is obviously problematic. Quote:

Since the law handles this differently in countries around the world...
it would go to far to put this module in the main repository. I would
appreciate it however if you archived it in the non-free website over here:
Striker has just re-set it up and I will shortly file my own non-free
modules there too.
