Well as the code has a non free license anyway its better that it is obfuscated.
So a developer cannot read and get "infected" by it.
Write his own code and copy parts of the code which he is not allowed to copy.

Sure getting Google to release it under a free license would be a good
thing, but I doubt that will do it anytime soon :(.
