So I was checking out the license agreement of a software product that I acquired the past days and noticed this section, please notice it was freeware software:
You agree that if you are found to be distributing unauthorized copies of this software, or if you are found to be using a copy of this software that was not licensed to YOU that you will agree to cover all applicable legal expense incurred by X in your prosecution. You further agree that these costs should not be less than 20,000 Euro per event.
I found it weird to include such statement and I have not seen anything like that in the past. Is it common for a software company to take such measures against piracy even on a "freeware" product?
Sorry if this is off topic, first time posting here.
