Legal stuff pretty much is required for everything with few
exceptions.  While it is possible that in this case an exception might
apply, the next occasion where it won't is not far away if you intend
to contribute to Emacs.  So better start getting the legal hassle over
with as soon as possible if your work situation does not prohibit it.
It is a nuisance, but not to be avoided.
