I know this isn't really relevant to the question at hand but I just
had to ask. Since the license is actually a contract, then does
that mean, that, say, if a child under the age of 18 were to
install the software, they would be free to ignore any restriction
that it imposes that is not imposed otherwise by copyright law,
since minors cannot enter into a legally binding contract?
