I don't see how this is a bug? License and copyright are (as per policy)
explained in [1] (locally: /usr/share/doc/partlibrary/copyright).

Closing the bug.

is incorrect, no where in the package does it say it is GPL; and no
where on the website does it say it has any license at all.

In fact, upstream (qcad) doesn't have the license to even distribute
those files.

Removal will be requested.

Subject: partlibrary removed from unstable

partlibrary has been removed, bug has been filed against
release.debian.org to remove it from squeeze and lenny

There has been some discussion about bringing it back as a contrib
package that downloads it from the Internet, but that is a little
shady since still no one has a license to distribute it.
