Sorry, I found this pretty funny. It would be like going on a road and seeing something like a dog, car or whatever ... and just saying it does not have a label, so I can take or use it.
I admit: In many cases it was the intention of the author, that you just can take it. But - unless there is at least a clear indicator of this whish - I would give everyone the good advice to be extremely careful. Otherwise it may cost a lot of money for legal troubles.
