The license notice in addon/claudio/claudio.lsp does not allow distribution or
commercial use. It probably applies to all files in addon/claudio.

True.  abuse-sdl incorporates the same files since r581 (2011-05-05).

In 2002, Justin Cassidy's frabs site said:

| As far as I know, there is no material in this archive that is not 
| public domain. I sure hope that the acronym is justified. :-)

The addon was first included in frabs in 12/10/99:

| 12/10/99 - Version 1.1
|
| - Added Claudio Bolzoni's free Abuse object set in 
|   /addon/claudio 
| - Modified /addon/claudio/claudio.lsp so that Abuse doesn't 
|   look for missing artwork. The original claudio.lsp can be 
|   found at */oldclaud.lsp 

Claudio, does this email address still work?  Under what conditions
would you like people using, modifying, and distributing your work?  I
am particularly interested in whether it okay to freely modify it and
to include it in works sold for profit (like operating system CDs).

Thanks,
Jonathan
