According to BitWarden's GitHub, all the code running BitWarden is released under the 'GNU General Public License v3.0'.
You you are free to do the following with the code: Commercial use, Modification, Distribution, Patent use, Private use.

So when BitWarden's T.o.S. says "You agree not to reproduce, duplicate, copy, ... any portion of the Service..." this is in violation of the licence for which the code is released.
Because according to the licence you are allowed to "Reproduce", "Duplicate", or "Copy" any portion of the service, you just have to use a different name and site your source.

(just like OwnCloud (paid) and NextCloud (Free))
