Hi Philip,

Just to be very clear: The AUR at https://aur.archlinux.org/ does not
host packages. There are (or should be) no binaries hosted by the Arch
Linux team, thus no redistribution issues.
Unless the software in question is quite literally under a
non-disclosure agreement, or some other type of license that forbids
redistribution of links towards the software, it's unlikely there's
ground for its removal.
If there are actual binaries being rehosted somewhere however, that is
something we may want to know about.

What is the package in question?
