I get that too:

[17233741.724000] rt61: module license 'unspecified' taints kernel.

In rt61-1.1.0-b1/Module/rt_config.h we have:

#define RT2561_IMAGE_FILE_NAME      "/etc/Wireless/RT61STA/rt2561.bin"
#define RT2561S_IMAGE_FILE_NAME     "/etc/Wireless/RT61STA/rt2561s.bin"
#define RT2661_IMAGE_FILE_NAME      "/etc/Wireless/RT61STA/rt2661.bin"

Which references the three blobs of binary firmware shipped with the
otherwise GPL'd driver.
