Oftentimes that statement is made to "nip it in the bud" so to speak and clear up any misconceptions that may be had by the person asking.

*Technically* you can't modify an addon for your own purposes either, if it's All Rights Reserved. But it's rare if you see that enforced in the world of addons.

/edit: while it may not make the person want to "investigate copyright law", it will educate them a bit more as to what they are asking of people or getting themselves into.
