I'm not sure why you say that; it is impossible to mirror software based on 
this licence since the above essentially says the software can only be 
digitally distributed using something like a shring wrap licence. Users as 
well as automatic downloads need to go through a licence agreement.

Well, everyone can, but in my (personal) book, this licence is not free.
