Well, I think we need to change the actual statement.. the problem,
notwithstanding whatever intent he had, is that the whole thing is
just not very clear.  It should definitely be under some 'real'

The question is.. is what do I get him to do?

Dave: So, ummm is this ok if we change the license?

Sandrof:  Sure, sounds fine by me.

Dave goes and changes the license?  Part of the problem is that people
feel they need something "official" that shows that the license is ok
by all parties involved.  If we wanted this to be legally correct, we
would probably have to get something signed and notarized (err spelled

So even if I call him, will it be enough?  Couldn't someone just come
along and say I made the whole thing up?

I dont know much at all about legal things, and my stress level is
really starting to go up with this whole issue:-(
