Wikipedia to the rescue!
    The doctrine of privity in contract law provides that a contract
    cannot confer rights or impose obligations arising under it on
    any person or agent except the parties to it.

OK, so? What does this have to do with relinquishing rights?
    the owner of copyright under this title has the exclusive
    rights to do and to authorize any of the following

See? A rights holder has the exclusive right "to do" and
"to authorize". Exercising the right "to authorize" is in
no way a relinquishing of any right.
