If I told you "you can do whatever you want with this and I won't sue
you" or "you have the right to implement this"

Where exactly is the difference?

I can redistribute the implementation as I wish because nobody will
sue me if I do so .. which means that I HAVE the right to do so.

You try to find holes, without backing it up with any citation so sure
you need a lawyer to clarification this.
