The licence is something you must follow to use the software, so if you don't feel the licence is valid because you didn't sign anything, it simply means that you're not allowed to use the software.

This sort of thing relies on copyright law: basically you're not allowed to copy the program from the CD to HD or RAM without the copyright holders' permission. I've often wondered how this copyright argument applies to RISC OS, given that it's in ROM and doesn't need to be copied into RAM. Perhaps Castle can't stop you using it if you break their agreement?
