That's not true. Somewhere you need a copyright notice for all the
copyright owners. Where there are a large number this tends to be done
by something like:
Copyright © 2010, Your name and others (see xxxx.txt for full list)

If this is a binary distribution, the licence is compatible, you
probably won't need this unless it is a condition of the other licence.
If this is a source distribution, you will normally need to include
the full licence text and make sure the scope of each licence is clear.

I don't think you understand "rights". Rights means the right to copy,
to publicly perform, etc. It has nothing to do with who is able to grant

If there is money riding on it, your personal lawyer.
Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
