Nitpicking, AFAIUI, contract law covers contracts, which has two parties. A 
click-thru license agreement only has one signatory (You), who are given 
rights according to a set of conditions. Once you violate those conditions 
the license is void. Contracts are quid pro quo, meaning both parties are 
giving something to get something else. Licenses are normally not written 
that way.
I assume definitions varies between jurisdictions.

However, the above fairly is irrelevant to the case at hand.
