No, this is quite compatible with free software.  Someone has to pay
the lawyer to generate the data: "please give us the run-down on the
law here", and then the lawyer probably doesn't care at all what you
do with it.

Keep in mind: free means libre, not gratis.

Yet, it does take someone with the knowledge and time to do it, or
someone to commission them to.  Lacking that, we can provide a
pluggable feature.
