 After seeing licenses that claim not to be affected by any laws that would
make any of its clauses illegal, I'd expect anything from them. Yeah, such
clauses would be void, but the best thing you could make in such a case
would not to accept the license at all (and not distribute the software).

 Another[0] piece of hideous pseudopoetry:

    If this software you want to use,
    abide by laws with no excuse;
    for if you're ever caught speeding,
    this very agreement will be rescinded.
