actually it is GPLv2 or later, as the header of main.c file lists:

  * https://github.com/kamailio/kamailio/blob/master/src/main.c

All (almost) source code files have the header with their license,
several files/modules have also BSD license, if you want to use
(extract) them individually. But over all, it is GPLv2+. Somehow GPL as
a term got associated mainly with GPLv2 over the time.

I updated the the web pages.
