copyright licensing has little to do with contract.

I own copyrighted material. You have no right to copy it or do various
other things with it unless I grant you a license to do those things.
I can release my material (eg on the web or on a cd) on certain
conditions, which conditions are called a licence. You don't need to
pay me anything. You don't need to buy the Cd from me. The fact is you
are only licensed to use the material on my terms, and those terms
allowed by the copyright law.
