So, I read disclaimers sometimes. And this one has as a phrase I find amusing...
In no event shall the author be liable for any special, direct, # indirect, or consequential damages or any damages whatsoever resulting from loss # of use, data or profits, whether in an action of contract, negligence or other # tortuous action, arising out of or in connection with the use or performance of # this software.
What, exactly, counts as "other tortuous action"? Within what context would that tortuous action clause apply?
In fact, the entire bit about "...whether in an action of contract, negligence or other tortuous action..." seems needlessly specific. Is there any reason they can't simply say "...of use, data or profits, arising out of or in connection with the use or performance of this software."?
It just feels like that phrase is, well, needlessly tortuous.
