Maps and mods on allegro.pl auction site

Someone going with the nickname Radziu_666 is selling an H5 package on allegro.pl (the polish eBay), with maps, mods, official patches, the skillwheels, and some other H5 stuff.

Apparently, he claims at the end that everything is GPL licensed, allowing him to make the sell. I don't know about you, but I didn't see much GPL licenses in any released map or mod (in fact I didn't see much license at all). I also doubt Ubi (or the polish distributor CDP) would be too glad to learn that someone is charging for their patches. And I also doubt Aurelain released his skillwheels as GPL.

At this guy credit, though, I notice that he didn't put the manual in his package, maybe because he respected the explicit manual license, which does not allow commercial use. That might be a good sign that he will stop his nonsense once we clear things up with him. I'm in contact with morthi (from the polish community), and we'll see what we can do about it.
I really hope this is just a mislead fan that misunderstood how this community works.

Anyway, if you're polish and can give us more information about this, please do. And if you're a mod/mapmaker, maybe you have an inside opinion.
In any case, and after the HeroesPortal discussion, it might be a good idea to add a small "license" part in your readme. Be it as permissive as you wish.

That should not be allowed by any means. Many people have worked on this and someone just packs and sells them? I doubt all these are his own work somehow.

I doubt it's even possible to put all the mods under GPL as many of them probably include original game files. And about the patches I'm quite sure ubi won't be happy to see someone charging for their work.

After Morthi contacted him, the seller agreed to stop the auction (if my polish is correct, the period is marked as Ended - "Zakonczona"). Apparently he sold 4 CDs, which represents about 15, so he's not quite rich yet.
The list of mods is on the auction page. You can see images of the Treant, Cleric, Dark Knights mod, among others.
