Varies. It's an attempt at overriding the statute of limitations. Some
jurisdictions permit this, others simply ignore it. I don't remember

I don't think it's not desperately important; collecting damages is
for corporations. All that really matters for free software is that
the courts enforce the license *now*; reparations for past abuses
don't really matter.
