[wp-hackers] Plugin license question

Hey everyone,

A plugin has to be GPL compatible to get into the WordPress.org plugin  
repository right? So, if a plugin is in there, and there's no license  
attached to it, can you safely assume it's GPL?

I want to know because one plugin I really like, and with me many  
others, the cformsII plugin:


has this annoying feature of linking back to the plugin page from each  
contact form instance, which I want to remove, but I can't find a  
license for it.

I was wondering if anyone, preferably from Automattic ;), could have  
their say on this.
