If including a CPOL package in a commercial software product, is the vendor required to ensure that users of the commercial software product agree to the terms of the CPOL license?

Thank you for your advice. I have written to the webmaster and await a reply. I am interested in the general answer to this question, not for a specific piece of software. My company, Do Diligence Partners, Inc., assesses the implications of open source licensing for commercial products we evaluate. So, I am interested in a definitive interpretation of the license for all software that is CPOL licensed.
