Mike, what you call a “polite request” is actually considered by many as veiled threat and was totally unnecessary.

We open source devs selflessly keep building these side projects, not for any financial aims, but to advance the craft of programming itself. Now consider how a developer should feel when a person like your agent Bob comes up with such legal threats. I think you are not setting a good example in the FOSS community by doing this.
