Plzip itself is GPLv2+[1], but the code of pread/pwrite was contributed 
by Hannes Domani under any license required to compile plzip under MS 
Windows (with MinGW compiler).

I admit that neither Hannes nor myself made this explicit in the Windows 
binary package above. The code is simple enough (a forwarded call to 
ReadFile/WriteFile) that I think it does not fall under copyright. But 
if it is required, I'll ask Hannes to add a proper license notice.
