Agreed. I don't think _any_ of these limitations can be imposed on

Especially troubling to me:

"(iii) a prohibition against modifying or creating derivative works of any
ICQ components of your Developer Product;"

"(iv) a prohibition against decompiling, reverse engineering, disassembling,
and otherwise reducing the ICQ components of your Developer Product to a
human-perceivable form, to the full extent allowed by law;"

Is viewing the source a human-perceivable form?
