I don't know about the Scribus log (would like to know, too), but, Ludi, you 
should know that GPL and CC are licenses. Copyrighted work is released under 
the terms of GPL, CC, and similar licenses in order to disclaim some of the 
rights that are otherwise reserved by copyright holders. Therefore, a GPL'd 
work is 

Copyright(c) Most rights not reserved

while a full copyright is

Copyright(c) All rights reserved

Some people talk about copyleft, but that's not a legal term. The term 
describes a piece of work which is copyrighted and released under a free 
license such as GPL or some variants of CC, and similar licenses.

Best regards,
