The license is declared in the META.yml file to be the same as Perl itself: license: perl That is the authoritative place for CPAN distributions to declare the license, which is picked up by other systems, e.g. search.cpan.org: http://search.cpan.org/~jdb/Win32-NetAdmin-0.11/ I agree that the licensing information should be included in the documentation as well though, as the META.yml file isn't being installed with the actual code. I'll do that whenever there is another release for the module. Thanks for bringing it to my attention! Cheers, -Jan
