It's possible to willingly agree to liability and wave whatever protections
you wish that are normally under the GPL, which seems to be what the TPV
asks you to do. The issue most people seem to have is that it's not explicit
in this regard and it also doesn't make it clear that it is a contract
between you and LL.
