EULA that's included in OCTGN 3.3 contains clauses which shouldn't appear on open-source software agreements #1826
Given that everyone has access to OCTGN's source code either way, I don't see a reason why I cannot modify the software directly.
This one has a very broad meaning. As is stands, it means that if I let anyone use OCTGN on my device, for any benefit they might have (be it the joy they get by playing on OCTGN), I'm breaking the EULA.
This clause is even worse, because anything OCTGN even considers is a breach of this EULA, then it is, in fact, a breach. If anyone gave me such a document to sign, I would be sure this is some kind of a scam.
Which means that I'm not given permission to install OCTGN on my friend's computer. Also there's a grammatical error in this sentence. Some preposition (like 'onto') is needed after 'for example'. But there's also this clause:
So even if you wanted to leave it as it is, there's a loophole: if I install OCTGN for my friend before even using OCTGN, I'm not breaking the agreement because it's not yet in effect.
