I had discussions with mpg on this same topic when I added mrsid support 
to ms4w, and he informed me that I must include the following license text:

Portions of this computer program are copyright (c) 1995-2005 
LizardTech, Inc.
All rights reserved. MrSID is protected by U.S. Patent No. 5,710,835. 
Patents Pending.

So actually when you install ms4w a file 'mrsid-license.txt' lives at 
the root, and the README section of MS4W's license contains that 
declaration as well.
