Precisely our point. Contracts that require the courtsystem to
interpret their meaning because they in themselves are not clear are
not contracts which any sane person would sign. [I would have severe
misgivings about any lawyer who advised his client to sign such a
contract either.]

Requiring a court of law to interpret the meaning of a contract,
especially when there seems to be no previous caselaw dealing with the
contract or license, is not something that I am comfortable with. Nor
am I enough of an expert (or even a novice) at the vagaries contract
law to adequately answer this question, or to play as an adjudicator,
and I strongly suspect neither are you.
