You're making the very common mistake of assuming that the law has
anything to do with reality. It doesn't. The fact that we're making
claims about legal issues opens the project up to a wide array of hairy
liability problems. It doesn't matter how baseless the lawsuit is,
sometimes just filing the suit creates enough damage to kill the thing

For example:

@${ECHO_MSG} "===>  License ${_LICENSE} accepted by the user"
