You know, somehow I suspect that given John's current working role he has been advised often and repeatedly by lawyers on this matter.  I also doubt that you have been as often as he has.

Marty, I find it downright hilarious that you start with "not a lawyer" and then proceed to talk down to John about exactly what the text means.  If you want to get a lawyer to tell us why this text doesn't suffice, please do so.  But don't waste our time with your legal analysis.

For the record: I've spent enough time being advised by lawyers on issues to recognize that what you are trying to interpret is not necessarily how the court interprets things.  This is why lawyers are specialists and highly paid. I don't let lawyer's have an enable prompt on my router, but I also don't tell them how to read legal documents.
