That would seem to be the Windows version. Its readme says that "There have been problems in the past of companies (both large and small) ripping off the source code and claiming they wrote it by removing all acknowledgements to the original authors. So, it was decided that it was best to license Speak Freely under GPL in versions 7.2 and later." The Unix version at sourceforge seems to be in the public domain, as noted. --Mviinama (talk) 00:48, 21 October 2019 (EDT)
