Cisco SM-ES3G-16-P no valid license found but the card still works?

Hi, I've inherited some cisco2951 and cisco2911 routers with SM-ES3G-16-P installed. And I have noticed something worrisome - the switches are indicating missing licenses. 

License Level: ipbase
License Type: Default. No valid license found.
Next reload license Level: ipbase

cisco SM-ES3G-16-P (PowerPC405) processor with 131072K bytes of memory.
Processor board ID FOC15060Q3M
Last reset from power-on
1 Virtual Ethernet interface
18 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces
The password-recovery mechanism is enabled.

This is the software version the switches are running : 

Cisco IOS Software, C3560E Software (C3560E-UNIVERSALK9-M), Version 12.2(52)EX1, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

It's rather old and I'm planning an upgrade to 15.2 but the thing with the license sounds troubling. 

Is there a way to fix it ? What kind of license do I need in order to use ipbase features ? 

Thanks.

I thought so too, but the routers are running 15.0 image. It seems that there is something else wrong with the modules. Is there a way to get an ipbase license for those ? I couldn't find the SKU for ipbase licenses.
