We try and negotiate as wide permissions as possible. All modules have licensing info in their conf file. That information should be sufficient for your purposes, no? 

In essence all those which are PD or similarly freely licensed are fine, those which are restricted carry appropriate info. The terms vary, but are usually explicit, short and standardised as per our wiki. 

That said, some publishers do not care and some care a lot, even when the terms are similar. I.e. some give us grief when they see use by non CW projects., Others do not mind.
