I read in sci.electronics.design that Mike wrote (in
) about 'Who owns your
mind?', on Thu, 28 Nov 2002:

Making the contract itself is not illegal; it is illegal to *enforce*
it. It's just like the Merchant's 'pound of flesh' - enforcement of such
an unreasonable contract was probably illegal even in mediaeval Venice.
