Huh? Is there anyone who is allowed to freely use this code? How many
of us are actually independent of academic or commercial affiliation?
Or am I completely misunderstanding the intent here?

It sounds like that statement is just badly phrased,
I believe the author meant something like

"I retain the copyright for this code, but it can be freely used by anyone"

the rest of the text is most likely just intended to specify that no restrictions to commercial use apply, anyway, I would ask the author to clarify this statement before spending any time trying to port the code to Octave.
