works in this case would only involve the scripts ( if any, you could 
actually do it all by hand, might end up with finger stress and a bad 
case of keyboard rundown ... but hey, could be done ). The Code itself 
is all licensed under Open Source Licenses ( various different names / 
specifics - but its all open source ).

Maybe artwork and other code additions that his person has created, 
might also be included in his own restrictive (c)....

But,  I am not sure what that person is trying to do ?
