- A software license is NOT an enactment of Law. It is a contractual document whose legality and enforceability depends on its being consistent with the country's contractual laws.
- Often different enactments of Law can give different answers to the same questions/disputes. Every country has a different system to resolve these confusions.
- In some countries, legal systems are not absolute and in most cases even existing and enacted Laws may be subject to the country's Supreme Court's purview. In other countries, the elected representatives (the legislature) might have the final say in enactments of Law, rather than the courts.
- The Criminal Laws of a country might often be very different from the other laws and be subjected to totally different standards of evidence/procedures etc.
