FWIW, the code was originally written by
http://web.me.com/d_j_v/Pages/Cocoa_Libraries.html
where he provides some details of ownership of the code being 
transferred to the authors of cocoaasyncsocket alright.

This code also depends on and includes 
http://code.google.com/p/cocoalumberjack/ that reports to be 
BSD-licensed per its home page

And I am not sure that it matters: the cocoalumberjack code contains 
comments about a certain fruit brand that may be a bit rough :
http://code.google.com/p/cocoalumberjack/source/browse/Lumberjack/DDFileLogger.h#245

http://code.google.com/p/cocoalumberjack/source/browse/Lumberjack/DDFileLogger.h#249
