rather than commenting on the several misconceptions and plain false

recommend you to reply him something similar to the following:

May I suggest you a simple action that would make everyone happy?

Instead of using your own custom-made license, please adopt the
Expat/MIT license [1]: it is short and simple and it basically does
exactly what you want, in a legally sound way; it is also well-known
and easily recognizable in the Free Software community; nobody will
probably annoy you again with licensing issues, if you adopt that

Please consider switching to the Expat/MIT license: it would really
make everyone happy.

I hope this helps.

 There's not a second to spare! To the laboratory!
