I have a few problems:

1. #5 above says that they are "under GNU license." Does he 
mean the GNU General Public License Version 2? I can only 

2. If it is assumed that it is GNU GPL, then #5 directly 
conflicts with #3 above, about redistribution.

3. Plus, there is a licensing fee (small for sure) for 
commercial use.

I wouldn't touch that code with a 10 meter cattle prod.
