terms of use

I'm always amazed by what software companies put in their terms of use. "We will never, ever, ever, be responsible for any damage at all that you may or may not be caused by using our software - no matter how reasonable it might be to expect our software to not harm you."

In other words, if it is carcenogenic, tough bikkies, baby.

Interestingly, Skype run out of Luxemburg, and claim a non-exclusive licence to reuse anything you put on the Skype website anywhere across the known universe. Universe no less! I would have thought the Solar system would pretty much handle most possible use they could get out of my writing, but God Bless Em for thinking ahead...
