...certainly if you care enough to avoid that situation, then
you'll go to the trouble of specifying a license when you release software?
Also, not redistributing something and forgetting about it are very
different things. I'll certainly remember good software and the people
who wrote it for at least as long as I can use the software, whether or
not I have the right to redistribute it.
