I see no discrepancy or need for correction/update in that information as presented. Copyright and license are two distinct and different entities. They are often confused because copyright is one of the rights frequently controlled by license.
The lack of copyright means that there is no copyright which means that the publication does not enjoy that protection and so might be copied if that was all there was. However it might still have patents or trademarks or contract (license) or hit men or maybe even no protection at all.
As for license, license issues could occur involuntarily with anything where permission was granted under license or contract, or voluntarily relinquished via the same.
That anything might have been something prior to voyager support being added and notification of violation or permission being revoked resulted in the removal.
Or it might have been something that happened at the same time as the removal and those current negotiations required the removal.
Or the removal might have been proactive for something that was to happen in the future, perhaps an expiration or a new contract.
To bring the abstract concrete in a possible but quite unlikely example, perhaps Eric was buying a new house and the loan contract included a clause that he not distribute an emulator of Voyager calculators because the lender was financing a competitor.
I think if you google enough, you might find some information or rumors regarding this particular license situation.
