Pink is licensed under the CeCILL free software license (full text of the license). The license is essentially GPL but it handles the question of jurisdiction in case of a legal dispute. There is, however, nothing to worry about. It only states that if there is a dispute between the parties of the license and they cannot agree on the jurisdiction of the dispute, than they shall settle they differences in the French court. This addition is useful for huge companies who must be able to predict the legal fees. Note that French legal fees are much lower than US legal fees.
