Ooo is this some backstory to why your plugins are so unbeatable? :P
I've asked around, and code is instantly copyrighted material as soon as it's written (Well that's the law here in australia)...
Licences come in when you want to distrubute the code, and it ensures that people just can't take it and then break the agreement in your licence, eg. someone taking b2evolution and then calling it wordpress360 and selling it for 10$ a pop.
So seeing as they have actually released the code, without a licence, you could do whatever you dam well please with it. But i think they can still take you to court if they wanted, but you just show those messages that you had with the co-author and it will work out.
I dunno, i'm probably just a little less confused as you on how this whole open source thing works. But pretty dam sure you have nothing to worry about.
Francois and Blueyed would have the best knowledge about this stuff I would imagine.
