Well, IANAL, but I can't imagine that sort of clause standing up in court in the UK. Despite what makes a good story for the newspapers, UK judges tend to apply common sense, especially in common law, which covers most of contract. They would put such clauses on a par with a saw manufacturer claiming rights over chairs. There is some statute law, but that tends to protect consumers, for example http://www.oft.gov.uk/about-the-oft/legal-powers/legal/unfair-terms/. But other countries will differ.

Regards,

John Davies
