True. We might want to discuss about that in another thread, as right
now every language seems to have a different copyright preamble, which
is different from the one in the POT files. That does not mean that
Vertaal is making it clear for the users what license are they
translating under (again, perhaps I don't know where to look).

Because the license can be rewritten by the tool that creates the .po from
the .pot, and sometimes by the editor. Kabel does if you click on an option.

I haven't even looked at what license the files I'm translating have. They
should have "same license as the .pot", but I do not verify.

Unless the project tell us to verify the license and use one, I really do
not care.

IANAL, but integrating content licensed as NC into GPL programs is
very likely illegal.

That's not for me to say. Novell has lawyers.
