I've been researching user-readable software licenses, and it strikes me that even as they get simpler and cut words, they always start with a wordy passive-voice construction:
Permission is hereby granted ... to any person obtaining a copy of this software and associated documentation files (the "Software")
Permission ... is hereby granted
Redistribution ... are permitted
Permission is granted to anyone
Why do the licenses use this same sort of wording even as they simplify in other places? Is there a legal advantage to using it in favor of the more obvious you may?
