It's a part of the ec CTAN package, not jknappen.

EC has its own FSF-free (optionally nonfree) and Fedora-nonfree license,
the issue is code copied from the PL fonts using the same license as MeX
which is public domain (probably invalid due to the jurisdiction) with
explicit restrictions that make it nonfree if it isn't public domain.
