Re: Steam for Linux

Steam client is now available for Linux [1]. I have read "steam install
agreement" (see attachment) and it looks suitable for non-free/games.
Does anyone have an opposite opinion?
I'm a bit concerned about the following statement
    4.     Export Controls. The Program may not be re-exported, downloaded or otherwise exported into (or to a national or resident of) any country to which the U.S. has embargoed goods, or to anyone on the U.S. Treasury Department’s list of Specially Designated Nationals or the U.S. Commerce Department’s Table of Denial Orders. By installing the Program, you are agreeing to the foregoing and you are representing and warranting that you are not located in, under the control of, or a national or resident of any such country or on any such list.

needs some consideration unless the program itself shows its licence to the user:
       (v) you must include this License Agreement provided with the Program and ensure that it will display and be required to be accepted by the end user in the same manner as is required by the Program in the form received by you; and

of less concern, but still in need of some further thought:
    6.    Warranties/Indemnities Relating to Redistribution.  If you choose to redistribute the Program, you represent and warrant that any modifications you make to the Program, if any, and your particular combination of the Program with any other software or hardware, do not infringe on any third-party intellectual property rights.  You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Valve, its licensors, and its and their affiliates from all liabilities, claims and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, that arise from or in connection with your redistribution of any modifications you make to the Program or your particular combination of the Program with any other software or hardware or your breach of this License Agreement.  Valve reserves the right, at its own expense, to assume the exclusive defense and control of any matter otherwise subject to indemnification by you. In that event, you shall have no further obligation to provide indemnification to Valve in that matter.
