Oracle 8i for Linux License Humor

I figured we could occasionally use a little laugh on this list, so have a
look at the following two URL's:

http://technet.oracle.com/tech/linux/ - Oracle's download page. Check out
the license textarea -- you can put any license you want in there before
clicking "I Accept" and Oracle still lets you download the software. 

http://osiris.978.org/~brianr/oracle-gpl.gif - The copy I downloaded
magically became Free Software. Note the text that reads "The OTN License
Agreement terms below supercede any shrinkwrap license on the OTN Technology
Track software CDs and previous OTN License terms (including the Oracle
Program License as modified by the OTN Program Use Certificate)."
