Glad that Apple has us covered

You probably don't read the terms of service when you download software from the Internet.  I know I don't most of the time - and I'm a lawyer.

Yesterday I downloaded Apple's newest version of its iTunes software.  And much to my astonishment, Apple's TOS for its software has a remarkable provision hidden deep in its fine print:

You may not use or otherwise export or re-export the Licensed Application except as authorized by United States law . . . .  You also agree that you will not use these products for any purposes prohibited by United States law, including, without limitation, the development, design, manufacture or production of nuclear, missiles, or chemical or biological weapons.

There, don't you feel safer?
