You can read about in the links given by Saint-Andre. Nullsoft's
developers, which are employees of AOL (Nullsoft belongs to AOL)
released the code without telling AOL. AOL quickly removed the code and
marked it AOL-owned-proprietry code. So the code is out because people
downloaded it, but it is in no way GPLed/BSDed or anything like that.
