No kiddin' this sounds funny, but it's real.
Currently I am translating a motion picture distribution agreement where the licenses do not over cover Europe, the Americas, Asia...., the world... and: the UNIVERSE! Really? In Space??

Trying to google if I might have stumbled over some very strange lawyer's jargon I found out that it really does affect space.. and beyond.

Don't miss this hilarious article: http://firemark.com/2009/10/29/is-the-universe-enough/
