I know nothing about DIV, but this looks like a warning for DIV Games
Studio users rather than a license for games.

Roughly translating the first two paragraphs:

  The games can be freely distributed, and there is no need to pay any
  payment or royalties. It is possible to use the software created using
  DIV Games Studio for any purpose, including selling rights to
  distributors, direct sale, shareware publications, freeware, etc.

  Likewise, there is no need for authors to mention DIV Games Studio nor
  Hammer Technologies.

It would be interesting to have more input from someone who knows more
about DIV Games Studio. For instance, does this (pseudo?) license apply
to the "raw" data? Is it possible to use the data without DIV-related
