I am living in Russia, where the laws are confused, uncertain, where
the limit between legality and illegality is often unclear.
Most probably I am doing here each day many illegal actions without
knowing it, also because my knoledge of the russian language is not
good enought to understand the (obscure) legal language, so 'in
fact' this license restricts its use to me, so it is not free.
