It's unfortunately not that basic.  How do you know that the person
who did the commit of the license had the authority to do so?  A very
firm requirement of the law for anybody to enter into an agreement is
that they understand that they are doing so.  You really need to talk
to a lawyer about the specific details of this case before you can get
a usable answer.
