Don't tell me all these companies could not afford to hire a decent lawyer to make sure that they were complying with the law .
Of course they could they just couldn't be bothered .
All theses people are interested in is your money .

Heres an extract of the article,





"The National Consumer Council(NCC) checked 25 products, including Microsoft Office for Mac 2004, Corel WordPerfect Office X3, Apple iLife, Adobe Photoshop, Norton, Kaspersky and McAfee anti-virus products, and games Command and Conquer 3, Football Manager 2007, and Supreme Commander.

The group said end user licence agreements, or EULAs, mislead consumers and remove legal rights."

Things that they say, honor brite
If I promise you the moon and the stars, would you believe it
Games people play in the middle of the night

So what's new?

One day, some company or other will make a decent EULA and it will go something like this:

'Thanks for buying our software, we hope you enjoy it.

Please don't take the Mick'.

End of agreement >> tick here.
