Question, doesn’t this contract be basically useless in the situation that a company creates a super intelligent AI who’s interests are aligned with theirs? Wouldn’t it very likely try and succeed at getting them out of this contract?

Aprillion's Answer to Mera Flynn's question on The Windfall Clause (edit, edit connection)

It could be more useful to prevent the use of simpler AIs to create a lot of wealth while causing harm to others. Legal obligations will be probably less relevant to a potentially deceptive super-intelligent AGI, but the symbolic meaning seems more likely to be beneficial than harmful for communicating human values, so not useless overall.
