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.
