"Prior to the transfer, the end user receiving the Software must agree
to all the EULA terms.", or IOW " ... *you* are responsible for making
sure the buyer agrees to all rules in this EULA."
Surely that cannot be legally binding?
How can *I* be held legally responsible for a third party accepting a
second party's licence?
If I sold someone a kitchen knife, would I be legally responsible if
they used it to commit murder, just because I forgot to ask them to
promise they wouldn't kill anyone with it?
