That will happen as soon as SCOTUS will dare to confuse conditions
(precedent) with scope limitations (such as for example "you can make
only ten verbatim copies, all other rights reserved") like boobs at
CAFC. (Confusing conditions precedent with covenants in consideration
aside for a moment.)

Uh retards.

"A condition is an event, not certain to occur, which must occur, unless
its non-occurrence is excused, BEFORE performance under a contract
becomes due." Restatement (Second) of Contracts  ยง 224 (1981).
