How should the developer present the disclaimer then? That dialog present the GPL text along with the disclaimer. "I agree" mostly belongs to the disclaimer. The purpose of the disclaimer is to shield the developers from liability in case the program malfuncitons and causes any unintended negative consequences. How should such shielding be done without the "I agree"-kind click-through?

Thank you.
