Monday smile – What on earth…

This week, I came across a scarcely credible clause in the terms of a service of the contentious corporation Amazon. Reported in 2016 on Spiceworks, it is, amazingly, still online. In fact, according to the webpage, it was updated 6 days ago!

Lumberyard, by the way, is apparently a freeware cross-platform game engine.

So here we go, the Service Terms of Amazon Web Services:

42.10. Acceptable Use; Safety-Critical Systems. Your use of the Lumberyard Materials must comply with the AWS Acceptable Use Policy. The Lumberyard Materials are not intended for use with life-critical or safety-critical systems, such as use in operation of medical equipment, automated transportation systems, autonomous vehicles, aircraft or air traffic control, nuclear facilities, manned spacecraft, or military use in connection with live combat. However, this restriction will not apply in the event of the occurrence (certified by the United States Centers for Disease Control or successor body) of a widespread viral infection transmitted via bites or contact with bodily fluids that causes human corpses to reanimate and seek to consume living human flesh, blood, brain or nerve tissue and is likely to result in the fall of organized civilization.

Do they know something we don’t?

If you don’t believe me, see here.
