A afghani woman that use the program to work brakes the local lows, since talebanis forbid women to work.
So the licence is discriminating afghan women.
It should be different if it would be a disclaimer: the afghan woman
will be allowed (by the licence terms) to use the program and after it
will be her problem with talebani...
It is like to sell a car with a contract that state that you are
not allowed, signing that contract, to use the car to rob a bank. So if
you rob a bank, not only you will persecuted by the local police, but
you will also brake your contract with the car dealer who could claim
the car back.
