A rather self-restrictive view IMO. If a copyright holder deliberately makes some files available to the public and doesn't include a text describing license conditions, it is safe to assume that the files are free for personal use (something which you cannot assume if you find an unlocked car :)). It's the same as for pictures, texts and other "intellectual property".
