Start by contacting the guy who issued the second 'license'.  Mention that
you want to be legally correct, and that you want to redistribute modified
versions to other people, and let them do the same, but that you don't
think you have explicit permisison to do that, and copyright law being what
it is these days, you aren't comfortable distributing without that.

At least you have a decent chance of a getting a license suitable for
non-free with that sort of request.

There are none so blind as those who will not see.
