Yes, the clause really seems silly, because if you'd pursue unlawful
purposes, wouldn't the last thing you'd care about, be the infringement of
a data license? Take a national secret service, apparently (nearly ;-) )
all of them are violating their own countries laws and constitutions (which
they should officially be protecting) and undermining the democratic
control set up to limit their power, etc.. Would they refrain from using
this or any other data they can get their hands on because of a clause like
this in a license that grants data use rights?

Cheers,
Martin
