As a contribution, in Brazil the Consumer Protection and Defense Code demands every service or product *sold* to come with a legally implied warranty of 90 days for durable things such as software. So the "no warranty" clause is void in Brazil, but this does not nullify possible other parts of the license.

Also, AGPL/GPL at least in version 3.0 allow to replace the "no warranty" part of the notice with a warranty-giving one, that in Brazil would be complementary to the one implied by law in Brazil.
