Indeed.  Martin's tools are definitely not OSI-compliant open source,  
and you can contact him for licensing information if you wish to  
include his code in your softwares.  He did grant libLAS the ability  
to use a port of his lastools commandline utilities (las2las, las2txt  
and so on ... the more mundane administrative-type stuff) however.
