But free licenses are not contracts: they are deeds, licenses, grants,
but not contracts.  So the protections which might apply if I were
agreeing to a contract don't apply: the drafter is solely granting me
permission, and I'm not paying anything at all for it, so I have very
few rights beyond what he grants.
