kopete/protocols/irc/ksparser.h is licensed under the non-free Artistic license. Which is odd considering all the other source code files for this protocol are licensed under the GPL v.2 license including ksparser.cp.

If reported this upstream at https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=356326 requesting a license.

In the meantime this protocol will be removed from ucclia.
