Hi Javier

Thanks for the pointers - not sure I understand the validity
A contract (cc license) cannot go against statutory law
It is my prerogative to make a contract subject to a condition
but maybe I misunderstand you? would you care commenting the implication
of the clause you point me to?

It looks like I need a whole cabinet of lawyers to use this cc license eh...

The parties would be the 'author' and the 'user', right?

There are no understandings, agreements

this particular sentence does not seem to mean anything?

They are called 'waivers' - perfectly legal standard contractual instruments

This License may not be modified without the mutual

No modificaion required, simple waiver will suffice for all intents and

I may simply delete that clause from my copies of the licnse

I shall see you all in court >.

Amicably of course
