in thread Why non-core CPAN modules can't be used in large corporate environments.
About integrating code into a company codebase: from what I gather from my reading of FSF documents, you can do absolutely whatever you want with the code (that's what they call "freedom zero" and "freedom one"), as long as you don't redistribute it. If you redistribute it, then you have some constraints which are specified in the license (some licenses require attribution, some licenses require you to give the same freedoms to the recipient, etc.)
