Even on people under 18 years of age? I think this is the biggest
loophole of all in the practice of licenses; any click-wrap license must
not apply to users under 18, since no contract has the power to bind
them under most law in the US. I imagine copyright licenses, having to do with
redistribution and modification, have a better standing with regard to
this age group, since even they are in theory restricted from copying
and modifying copyrighted works without a license. Of course, in UCITA
states, click-wrap licenses may bind even those under 18, though I
cannot tell for sure.

What does everybody think?
