We're getting too country specific here. Let's avoid that. But to answer
the question you stated, let me pint out that we have to do with a
contract here. There are rather clear rules in the contract area.  Some
clauses can be ignored, see avtaleloven §36 which would probably be used
if the can't-sue-each-other problem was brought to court.
