It astounds me the things that people put in their license agreements sometimes. It also makes me wonder what event prompted the inclusion of such a phrase. . .

Wow, two posts about work in one day: It's like Christmas for people who want to know what I do for a living wage, except there's no baby Jesus involved.

Nope, they say, "Here's some free code. Do what you want with it. Maybe it's useful, maybe not, but don't sue us if it doesn't do what you expect."

The irony is that quite often it works better than the stuff you pay for, mostly because "do what you want with it" includes improving it and contributing those improvements back.
