That is what the web site says, but the readme says:

	ArabTeX is copyrighted by the author. If you use the system for
	scientific work please give appropriate credit to the software
	and the author (e.g. in the colophon of a monograph.) We also
	appreciate a complimentary copy of any scientific work produced
	with ArabTeX.

	ArabTeX may be redistributed and/or modified under the terms
    	of the LaTeX Project Public License distributed from CTAN
    	archives in the directory "macros/latex/base/lppl.txt"; either
    	version 1 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.
