I never think we actually settled that question into a consensus that
choice-of-law provisions are or are not free. Personally I'd say that
a choice-of-law clause is OK unless we know that the law in the
specified jurisdiction will interpret the license in a non-free way.

Choice-of-VENUE provisions are a different matter. They can be evil.
