If you own the code, you can license it under multiple licenses.

Kind of like if you own a TV Show, you can license it in the US under one
contract, and in other geographies under other more or less restrictive
contracts.

This is a painful reality to those of us in Canada, as we can't watch South
Park clips online. :P
