IT is open source with the PDFlib Lite product.

If you check this page http://uk.php.net/manual/en/ref.pdf.php, you will see the following line:
PDFlib Lite is available as open source. However, the PDFlib Lite license allows free use only under certain conditions. PDFlib Lite supports a subset of PDFlib's functionality; please see the PDFlib web site for details. The full version of PDFlib is available for download at » http://www.pdflib.com/products/pdflib-family/, but requires that you purchase a license for commercial use.
