You retain all rights to the graphics produced with GIMP in accordance with
the laws of your region. Usage of the GIMP does not alter your rights to
your own work, or others rights to theirs.

From the Help menu in GIMP choose "About", then click the "License" button.
It will show you this:

You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public Licence along
with GIMP.  If not, see

Hope it helps. :)

Since these kind of clarification request are frequent and this
explanation is IMHO well done and clear, why not adding it in the top of
the general FAQ?

Just to avoid to write the same over and over...
