This License will not be construed as creating an agency, partnership, joint venture or any other form of legal association between You and BTRC, and You will not represent to the contrary, whether expressly, by implication, appearance or otherwise.
Nothing in this License will impair the BTRC right to acquire, license, develop, market and/or Distribute products that perform the same or similar functions as, or otherwise compete with Your EABAcompatible work.
