Sorry, I am too silly to read, the different parts of cdrtools have
different licenses, mkisofs is GPLv2 and cdrecord has this:
| This software is under GPL with the following limitations:
| -       You may not modify certain copyright messages in cdrecord.c
|         See cdrecord.c for further information.
| -       You may (with a few exceptions) not modify the location of the
|         configuration file /etc/default/cdrecord.
|         See defaults.c for further information.
| -       The fact that cdrecord is linked against libedc_ecc does not
|         make libedc_ecc licensed under GPL. Section 2 of the GPL does
|         not apply in this special case.
|         If you create a work derived from cdrecord, you may not ship
|         this derived work with libedc_ecc.
