I assume you meant to write "...he wouldn't sue..."?

Most of the authors who publish under whacky non-free licenses probably
wouldn't sue.  Lawsuits are not the only reason to be careful, though.  We
also want to make sure they aren't going to denounce us as a pack of
thieves, and that some lawyer reading licenses for Cheap Bytes won't run
across such a license and recoil in horror.

I think that including the emails should be enough.
