Oh my, the sheer ignorance that sentence reveals.
Python and the standard library *is* licensed. I mean, good grief, when
you start up Python's interpreter, it even says:
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
Similarly any C compiler you use will also be licensed. If it's not, you
have no right to use it! (Unless you can find a public domain compiler,
which I doubt exists, and even if one does, I doubt it will be very good.)
