    If I understand the first answer correctly, there actually is:
    ---- snip ----
    This agreement is primarily intended for Novell's customers. It doesn't
    imply or guarantee that you are *not* sued. An exception may be if you
    are a customer of Novell, than M$ will not sue you *directly*.
    So for all Non-Novell customers: You may be sued directly from M$ (and
    from all others).
    So for all: You may be sued indirectly by M$ (and directly from all
    others).
    ---- snip ----
