This seems to be a big problem with academia in general.  I almost
never see a piece of code associated with a research paper that has a
coherent license attached to it.  Often there's no license at all.  I
don't know if this is ignorance or if there are bureaucratic hurdles
at work here.  It's possible it's the latter, since universities often
want to profit off of licensing the research that's done on their
sites.
