We obviously cannot comply with the EULA "Additional Restrictions" 1-3. So no use signing up. Time to find an alternative.

Alternatives listed in Matomo ticket:
Both are CC 4.0 license, same as maxmind MMDB format (preferred)
Matomo ticket says it doesn't support IPv6 but can't find that statement in the linked FAQ, to be verified CSV format

db-ip does have IPv6 as mentioned later in the Matomo thread, also confirmed via testing:

"just an fyi, we reached out to dbip and confirmed the free databases do have ipv6 addresses. Their faq is likely out of date."

This and mmdb format makes it the obvious choice.
