I actually need to follow up on that, because the terms *were* legally questionable last time I looked (also too hard to review, since as far as I am aware, they're only presented during new user sign-up).

I'll deal with that at work today.


Iím pretty sure VanL wrote the terms and has explicitly said they wonít change and are exactly as broad as they need to be without being any broader[1]. They are linked to from the footer of every UI centric PyPI page.
