"Covenants" -- not conditions dummkopf.

What rock have you been living under, silly dak?

Do you really not understand what a license is?  After all this

dummkopf -- n. A stupid person; a dolt.
[German : dumm, dumb (from Middle High German tump, tumb , from Old High
German tumb) + Kopf, head (from Middle High German, cup, cranium , from
Old High German, cup , from Late Latin cuppa).]
