No sublicensing?  I'm pretty sure that's also a violation of open source 

What happens if Hilscher Gesellschaft für Systemaustomation mbH, 
Rheinstraße 15, 65795 Hattersheim/ Germany vanishes?  Do all extant 
copies of the program have to be returned?

Or is this some quirk of German law I'm not familiar with?
