<div id="RTEContent">>Much as you indeed own that milk, there are hundred of years of<br>>precedent for attaching strings to contracts: As long as the subject<br>>matter of the contract is not itself illegal, the courts have allowed<br>>competent adults to sign away almost all rights, if they're reckless<br>>and don't carefully watch what they agree to.<br><br>Actually, just the opposite usually happens. Courts will not allow people<br>to sign away their rights. That is why most contracts contain what is<br>called a "severability" clause. A severability clause states to the effect<br>that "in the event any portion of this contract is deemed illegal, void or<br>unenforceable, such judgement does not effect the remaining portions<br>of this contract, and such portions remain in full effect."<br><br>Of course, in uncertain cases (grey areas) it all comes down to the judge and <br>whatever personal bias the judge has (and can get away with while
<br>appearing to be impartial.)<br><br>One of the basic principles of contract law is to write a contract that is<br>as outrageous as possible, claiming rights beyond what is legal or<br>reasonable, the rationale being that by exceeding the limits you will<br>therefore be fully protected up to the limits allowed by law.<br><br>- Adrien<br><br></div><p>
