As far as I know we have two licenses the GPL which is the open
source, and the optional BL


The BL requires a contract from the BF, and is a closed source only license.

Presumably the individual doesn't have a BL license.  So a change to
the BL wouldn't have any effect.  And such a change to the the GPL
license would make it GPL incompatible (the BSD license used to have
an advertising clause similar to that, which was removed due to
incompatibility with the GPL.)
