This is based on the US case of Stevenson v. TRW Inc., 987 F.2d 288, 296
(5th Cir. 1993).

"A contract's warranty disclaimer satisfies the conspicuous requirement
when it is printed in all capital letters, when it appears in a larger type
than the terms around it, or when it is in a larger and boldface type."
