It seems there is no legal ground in the software licensing world. The
publisher/write/controlling entity can put whatever terms the $&%^ want
in the license as long as the terms do not compel the user to commit
illegal acts to stay in compliance with the license.
It is a system that needs lots of public debate followed by some
intelligent (for a change) legislation.
