Eh? But it says:

   You agree never to assert against Sun or its licensees or transferees
   any moral rights therein.

That's void under my local copyright law, but the provision certainly is
giving copyright rights away. And then:

   This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of
   California and applicable U.S. Federal law, without application of
   choice of law rules.

That, in case one does not live in the State of California, happens to be
a pretty large giveaway.
