Yes, we got that (it contradicts your first quote, but then it would
seem that the authority of the second is better).

But you are still barking up the wrong tree.  What you claim is that the
author can't explicitly grant a non-exclusive licensee the right to
sublicense.

That's not supported by either of your quotes, and it does not even make
sense.
