Please don't make the situation of proprietary software worse than it is by
assuming what Mathworks might or might not allow. The Matlab license
agreement says in it's addendum: 

"2. USER CREATED FILES.  This Addendum does not apply to MATLAB code files,
Simulink model files, MEX-files, MAT-files, VHDL-files, Verilog-files,
FIG-files and P-files that are created by Licensee and that do not include
code obtained from MATLAB code files, Simulink model files, MAT-files,
C/C++ files, VHDL-files, Verilog-files, TLC-files, or other Source Code
supplied with the Programs ("User Files").  Licensee may distribute or
sublicense without restriction, User Files provided that a principal purpose
the distribution or sublicense is not to replace or replicate a Program or
part of a Program."


I am not a lawyer but that sounds quite relaxed to me.
