Asking him is the right way.  The question to ask is whether he wants to
contribute this code to Emacs and/or GNU ELPA: if he does, then that
means his copyright assignment does cover this file and so that means
that the "Copyright (C) 2014 Johan Andersson" should be changed to
"Copyright (C) 2014 Free Software Foundation, Inc".

Of course, you want to keep his name as an "Author:" and/or "Maintainer:".

The problem is not just the license but the copyright.  Who owns the
copyright to those files?
