Hm. This is just a guess, but my guess is that this hasn't been run
through a lawyer. The language is fairly imprecise in places, and there
are grammatical errors. The license treats the word "OpenContent" as having
implicit meaning. The quality of language in the license doesn't lend itself
to erasing ambiguities.

Personally, I wouldn't use it until it has been greatly cleaned up.

Just my opinion...
