I've just one question about copyright assignment...
Here in Austria it's impossible to assign copyright away from the author, it's forbidden by law!
I mean, you can do it but the contract doing so gets worthless.
Anyone thought about that one for a second? Because AFAIK Austria is not the only country in the EU with such law's in place.

However, I don’t think in the end, this distinction is that important, and it can be covered mostly by the salvator clause (“If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable …”).
