That's entirely the choice of the recipient.  If he considers it
invalid, he does not have a license, and has to behave accordingly.  If
he considers it valid, he has a license granted under terms.  As long as
he heeds the terms, there is nothing to fear for him.

Huh?  If I compose and sing a lullaby to a child of mine, I no longer
have the option for charging someone else if he desires a performance or
a copy of the composition?

How confused are you?
